Najla the Elf Archer by gamera1985 Najla the Elf Archer by gamera1985
She is Najla, an elf archer whose upper head has been partially petrified. But she got used to that, and now uses her hearing and her hawk to give her information about what's around.

I do love her look! Her petrified face makes it look like she is wearing a mask. And her clothes are quite cool too. As she is supposed to be more than 50 years old, I tried to give her wrinkles, but not so much, as stone doesn't get old... and well, Elves don't grow old much either.

I'd bit she has spilt a few skulls after someone had tried to head butt her.

J'adore sincèrement le concept de la pétrification partielle ^^
(Et c'est là que je réfléchis trop: comment est-ce que le sang fait pour irriguer toute la tête ? parce qu'au niveau du visage, les vaisseaux doivent bloquer un peu, non ? =p)

gamera1985 Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
je suppose que cette partie n'est plus irriguée...elle continue de fonctionner, mais ne vit pas..... un peu comme l'éternelle jeunesse, mais cela n'est que de la pierre

Ce que je veux dire, c'est que le sang s'arrête là et ne peut pas boucler son tour dans la tête, les toxines s'accumulent et très rapidement on arrive à un blocage et elle tombe malade et elle meurt :noes:
Heureusement que tout est possible dans les mondes de magie :bucktooth:

J'adore les yeux qu'elle a. car pour être archer, il faut avoir de bon yeux, mais là, on dirais qu'elle n'y voit rien, et que pourtant, elle a l'air très forte ^^
bravo!

I have to say that when I first saw her, I thought she was wearing a mask, but then I read the description. Very original design, my friend. Her outfit is pretty nicely detailed. ;)
You're also very good at coloring and detailing your backgrounds, although I didn't see you do it very often. :D
This forest background suits the scene perfectly. Well done. :nod:

She looks very cool with that petrify-mask-like detail. A interesting art of an elf with extreme senses and potential. Enchanting.

50%? looks to me to be like the front 25%, maybe 30% but no more than 35&. The area petrified seems to be the frontal lobe area of the brain, again this is a magical being and a women, which contrary to poplar belief: don't use really any more or one side more side of their brain than a man, but the frontal lobe would be a bad place to have unusable. But I guess the Hawk would take over that area. Strange, but cool.

Always seem to be doing that, too bad bush doesn't...(THINK).
You could almost call me Peter Parker, for in my alter-ego(alpharaptor2k6) I make quite a lot of wise cracks and throw out recycled one liners all day it seems here on DA, and I have been bitten not once, but twice by spiders(sad to say I still keep falling off walls and the only thing I've gotten is a nasty rash(or two) from the bites).

Partial petrification? Hmm... I wonder what did it to her? She was obviously surprised (wide, open eyes, fixed like that). I can only imagine how bad that must have been for her, being an archer and all. I like how you drew it. Very nice feel for bodies. Cool hawk as well. Great job coloring it all in. I like the background too.

For some reason I was thinking she'd have four arms or something like that.

Don't worry, it was a pleasant shock when I saw the pic.

I was just thinking "archer...couple extra hands would work" and just kinda went with that.
