The first time I have ever seen someone depict an elf that is not white-skinned, and it turns out to be frickin awesome.

Aie-yie-yie: THIS is original. Never heard nor seen an elf with such darker skin tones AND realistic afro with dreads. SO appreciate this work of yours! And o the EYES. I hardly see a dark-skinned character with THIS much depth of detail. Very well done!

This is flawless... I mean, the amount of detail in the hair is staggering. PLus the subtle glow of her skin. Just... wow.

Incidentally, she looks like an elf version of one of my own characters... they share the thin dreadlocks and the golden eyes.

Whoa, look at her lips, her ear, her hair and her shading. So beautiful!
Even her lashes and her brows are very well done. I also like the neckline of her clothing. Boss!

She's exquisite.  She invokes several different emotional responses whenever I look at her.

You've gained a fan and I hope to see more dark skin tones in your work.
