   Fantasy - Elves   

Elves were originally a race of semi-divine beings from Norse mythology. In modern folklore, they become associated with the fairies and assume a diminutive size. But with the popularity of J. R. R. Tolkien novels (The Lord of The Rings, etc) the elves in modern fantasy got once again closer to the oldest myths, being described as tall and beautiful magical beings with pointed ears.

Here are some of my drawings and paintings featuring elves and dark elves (drows).

I've made this one for a contest on DeviantART. I wanted an "old drawing" feel about this one. A simple drawing with a yellowish tone.
