+RAXXON+ Elves of El'yen by Nephyla +RAXXON+ Elves of El'yen by Nephyla
Extract from the sketchbook " Achives VII" avaible online on our Website : [link]

"The Elves or El'yen are one of three branches of the elfic race after the Great Schism, with the black Elfs and the Atlantes. It's a strange people who lives in autarky in the forest of El' yen where nobody can penetrate or go out again from it, unhurt.
The forest has a real influence on these people who becomes dehumanized slowly but surely. Their absent expression, their ghostly look, the disappearance of their pupils contribute to make them frightening. Some of then have physical deformations which moves them closer to their natural environment that of their past civilization.
All aren't be touched by this pathology. But to escape from this place, means suffering from a long and painful disease which will never be reduced because of the dependence between the forest and her guests.
The destiny of this civilization is sealed."

I love, the way you've done these elves! So many people have been starting to do them in this beautiful way, making them look more non-human. Fitting for a different species. :)

This is stunning! I love the character designs, and how you carried the same basic traits across vastly different individuals.
