Female Drow

Featured Art 2020-08-19
A wonderful drawing of a fierce Drow!

This digital rendition of a female Drow offers a glimpse into the stern and powerful race of Dark Elves where the females are often in positions of power, as can be seen from the confident pose. With her captivating and commanding gaze, only the foolish would dare to question her authority.

This fantastic work is brought to you by [nehirwen]. You can view more artwork at Nehirwens Art.

Cracked Hands Covered in Stardust

With skin coated in speckled stardust,
You tore the universe apart
With your bare hands -
And I destroyed the idea
That anything above it existed
When I looked at the sky
And saw that you were missing.
I remember nights of
Wishing together on nebulae far away
Speaking on the ancient tongues of
Galaxies and the way the
Constellations formed in our breath.
You're not the same now.
I am not either.
And together we are -
A broken, cooling star expanding
Waiting to sink back into the dark
And pull all the light away.
Maybe we just reached too far,
For galaxies and ringed planets just out of our grasp.
But know this, in your heart:
Even with the madness,
Of a broken solar system,
That I am here,
Light years away,
still wishing on you.

[To the Welkin]

I'd like to introduce you to one of Elftown's fun, relaxed artists: [To the Welkin]!

<img:stuff/xvb45GH.jpg?y=300>

Is there a story behind your username?
Perhaps not the most original inspiration behind a username, but it's actually a shortened version of one of my favorite black metal albums entitled 'Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk', by the band Emperor.

What all do you do on Elftown?
I lurk, communicate with old friends, write private thoughts in my little diary, and scout for art that speaks to me. I enjoy posting little snippets of my own writings and creations; I'm usually quite shy about my art but Elftown has helped me to come out of my shell a bit. There is something very frightening yet liberating about exposing your innermost depths to the eyes of others.

Do you prefer using a specific medium for art?
Typically I gravitate towards charcoals, pen/ink, and the biggest paper I can find. However, more recently in the last year or so I have dabbled in found object sculpture, due to having an apartment and no money to buy decor. You have to get creative when you're poor, haha. I experimented with random gadgets, car and clock parts, woodwork, even silverware. It opened me up to a whole new experience and perspective. I hope to continue this trend and not revert to one specific medium each time I feel an artistic endeavor coming on.
What do you do for a living?
I am a hair stylist. It's not exactly my dream job, but I am determined to find the loopholes of being an artist in modern society. I think it is important to enjoy what you are doing in life. I'm figuring it out as I go along. I do not desire vast amounts of money or recognition, just connectivity with like-minded souls, and endless open doors, as a result of continuously taking risks and putting myself and my art out there.

Featuring a lineup of fifty different pictures, artists can draw inspiration for combat-esque poses, which are modeled by [Skydancer] himself.

A Tale of Honor

Today we feature a short story written by [OnlyHeroLeft].



Let me tell you a tale, young one. A tale of a young woman, a disgrace of a knight, honored for his vile nature, and a truly honorable man, disgraced for his virtue.

It started with the young woman, a lass by the name of Maria. The beautiful daughter of a simple farmer, she lived a largely carefree life. She would assist her family - mother, father, and brother - with tasks around their land as was needed, and only rarely came into contact with many outside of her house's walls. One day, her mother took ill, and her father - unable to leave the farm to either Maria or her brother's yet young hands alone - requested that Maria travel to the village and seek the doctor for medicine. The young woman of course agreed, and set toward the village as rapidly as she could. It was two hours walk, however, and no horse was available to spare. By mid-afternoon, she had reached the village and met with the doctor. He offered her the medicine she sought, and Maria was soon on her way back to her home. This, however, is only the prelude to the story that unfolds, told to you now solely that you would have background for why such a lovely young woman would travel alone.


That is, of course, just the beginning of the writing - to read the entire work, you can view it on A Tale of Honor. We hope that you enjoy the reading as much as we did!
