Ballad of the Emerald Bard by Eddy-Shinjuku Ballad of the Emerald Bard by Eddy-Shinjuku
OC Commission for :iconmadrin:

Photoshop CS6: Painting, Illustration, Airbrushing and Post-processing. Working hours: 20++

Character Description by Client:
El'Mindeeya Do'Katal, the Emerald Bard. An Elven Troubadour, with a long dark past, she walks the world singing songs of great deeds and painful sorrows. Her own Ballad is a song about a simple female elf coping with a world in which she feels she doesn't belong....

A traveling bard, Deeya would always dress in something comfortable yet functional for the road. Her weapons, a long ceremonial elven blade that was given to her by the Queen of the Elves, and the Sonatic Axe, a tomahawk like axe given to her by the Goddess of Music, are always close at hand.

Her only adornment is a teardrop emerald hanging from a choker, a constant reminder of her dark past that forged her into the Emerald Bard. She walks in a world that she feels she doesn't belong, so falling leaves surround her. Raised apart from elven society she doesn't fully understand her own immortality, and laments every time she's forced to draw her weapons.

Love the hair and I like how she seems to be very slightly squinting into the sunset glare. Her shirt seems five seconds away from falling open, even if the sleeves are sown into those leather straps, but HEY hollywood tape. :D

There is so much movement in this piece and it is AMAZING. It is technically incredible.

The details in the clothes are almost hypnotic. She looks fairly protected.
