Dark elves by Shabazik Dark elves by Shabazik
A birthday gift for :iconlunareth: of her dark elven character, Luna, as teen and adult. X3

I may add something later, but I'm late for classes!

Bye!

EDIT after returning from classes. I arrived some ten minutes late, but only two after the professor. added some shadows for the background I thought it lacked XD

Lunareth, the dark elf

Lunareth (the character, not the deviantArtist!) is a dark elven rogue from Nan'Dorath, who like other dark elves know about the secret of herbs and poisons, that she normally use in her daggers. Aguile and quiet, as a good hunter she can stalk a prey without this even finding her out.

The dark elves of Nan'Dorath live in the forests of the north, instead in caves like their drow cousins, but they seem to have some weakness to the sun that Lunareth share.
She tend to be sarcastic, having a very personal sense of humor, and if somebody get a rise out of her, she sure will get mean and sly revenge on that person.

Lunareth have a brother, and is daughter of the shaman of her tribe, having herself a strong shamanic affinity: a very strong contact with the nature, and she has the ability to understand the world spirits, so she can get easily mad if someone harm the nature. Dear to her heart every animal who can run fast or fly high.

Here I drawed a version of the young Luna, when she was still training with his brother in her homeland, and Lunareth as adult.

Great job, love the irreverent expression in the young Luna, and the deadly calm in the grown up one. Love it, shows maturity and character natural growth.

One of your "Age Regression" pics! ;) You do so well with making the characters look like themselves even as children! Looks like Lunareth is a wise adult but was a rough and tumble girl!

Lovely background of conifers and mountains, interesting in the visible slop in the near background!

so are they the "night elf" variety

or the pre"taint" evil ancestors of the drow
Reply
:iconshabazik:
Shabazik Featured By Owner May 24, 2012  Hobbyist
Neither... :3

They are dark elves from :lunareth: setting which if anything, would be like the dark elves of Lineage II. They seem to live hidden in the forests of the north, and have strong bonds with nature.

In my world, the term dark elves is generic -like for example, caucasian or indoeuropean in humans-. Elfkind is divided basically in two big familes: Dark and Light elves: [link]

The Dark elves are the purple wollumis -they will be more the "nigh elf" variety-, the blue Hakes -these will be the more similar to the dark elves drawn here-, Flairie and Desert elves, and the black drows.

The Light elves are the pink High, silvan, hebonnor, grey, sand, snow, wild and blood elves and the magicless doroz.

Difficult to classify between one or other group, are the green mourlicoun -or dryads, nymphs or leaf elves- and the white Anqueael -or Ice elves-, who are alternatively light or dark elves, depending of the autor.

The Im'salanos, being "half elves", are as well difficult to be accepted completely as a light elf, and the "ash elves" are people with mixed light and dark elven ancestors. :3

I don't know about Lunareth dark elves.
In my world, there isn't much of alligment. Normally people do claim they are of course the good ones, thought. XD They all would be chaotic, thought. :3

My dark elves:

The WOLLUMIS (Purple) are matriarchal
the HAKES (blue) have sexual equality, without a predominant or strong gender
the DESERT ELVES (Blue) are divided in tribes. In Barreds, normally they are matriarchal, while in Ze-Berra, they are patriarchal.
the FLAIRIE (Blue) are patriarchal, but in their prehistoric times
the drow are matriarchal.
the MOURLICOUN are matriarchal

In prehistoric dark elven culture, all the dark elves where matriarchal, thought, and only in historic times, and with different religions and cosmogonies, some of the dark elves will change.

what's the average percentage of hermaphrodites or non-sexuals among those elves? ( i am counting driders as eunuchs)

I never have give a thought of it, and as I don't know the percentage in humans, I don't want to guess, and giving them too much or too few

Still, I find it greatly amusing how pouty and annoyed the younger one is at her older self! While the older one has this kind of affectionate, but totally smug look towards the younger.

It's rather funny ;) Is this how it would play out if the two versions of themselves actually ran into eachother?

Oh, I don't know as their aren't my character... but I'm quite sure many people, if finding their own-self as a teen, would look at them with some affection, but being totally smug.

And is very possible the teen version of ourselves wouldn't like the adult version! XD

When I'm mimicing other people styles, I try as well to mimic their use of textures and colours. :3
