ARTIST'S COMMENTS

This is Elidhu, *Hlsadlar's gorgeous character. She is an immortal goddess of earth, and all in all a very interesting character to draw. I don't think I've ever spent this much time and consideration into one single painting before! (well, with a few exceptions..)

I don't think I've ever got stuck as much as I did with this one either! There was always something about the foliage in the background that made it hard to continue, or something that didn't look right, or that I didn't know how to draw. I guess that made the process of drawing this much longer than a usual commission.

Anyways, I hope you are happy with the result! No critism on the pose either, please, it was very hard to draw and I'm still not 100% pleased with it!

Everyone has their own interpretations. The elements are hardly restricted to one gender only.
