YOU have been so sweet and giving of your art and talent !  Is  there  Anything   that I could draw for you as a gift ? 

btw -  finally got to pa-rouse your gallery here and was amazed  [meaning delighted-not overly surprised] to find that you are a great 3d artist in your own right - such wonderful stuff.  Sad that you are so far away - I  am always  looking for art study group people who like to hang out and draw and 'stuff' together - you seem well rounded  artistically and Fun.

Thank you again for the wonderful  art Gift !

Thank you, I still feel I'm fairly new to clay work! Have been working on it the past year. I have so many ideas, and so little time to get them done, aarrrgh. I love seeing what you make with it, very inspiring!

It would be nice to get together, I agree. Luckily I find some rare opportunities to work together with others, I hope you do too. Even if it's only one person. :)

If you feel like drawing me a gift in return, feel free to choose! I'm still working on a site with descriptions of my various characters in English.

I was just looking trough your gallery. Its hard to believe I've known you for 8 years!
Longer actually. Back in 2002 I saw your art on some other site, Frozenrain, I think it was and you had also posted links to other elfquest sites (which I found helpful by the way. :)

There were some pics of yours that you posted back then then that I really liked.
One batch was from a tribe of elves that lived up in the frozen north
(Not the Go-Backs)

Another she-elf, I don't remember her name, was dressed in pruple and had only
one eye after an encounter with a big cat.  She always struck me for some reason.

Oh my, it indeed has been a while since Frozen Rain! It was a site I ran myself, for my Elfquest RPG related pictures. But since I'm not in any EQ RPG anymore, I no longer felt the need for it. I mostly post stuff here now anyway. :)

Hmm, the tribe you're describing reminds me of Talou, though he came from mountains that weren't icy. Could you describe a bit more what you saw?

And waw, you remembered Tatanka. :o I've only drawn two pictures of her, and I never took her to an RPG! I always liked that first picture of her too. It told so much with her pose and expression, perhaps that's why I never wanted to do more with her; that picture already did everything. 
I feel the need to look her up now, though I won't repost that picture as is, since it was done in crappy computer coloring. But perhaps I could recolor her. :)

I guess it was more like tundra, there were forests of evergreens
Well let's see, one of the characters was a single dad with a tough little girl.
There was a picture of him showing her how to use a spear.

There was also a picture of two elf women archers who were friends/rivals with each other:
one had long dark hair and the other blond.

There was a cure lovemate couple, sitting under a tree, the girl had a long blond braid.

Another of my favorites is the  chieftess, she was blond and on a pair of skis. 

As for Tatanka, please do repost her, I think she looks great!
You should know that I wrote a Star Trek story on  and when I invented the Chief of Security
I was thinking about her. The character is human but I see your character in my minds eye.

Waw, that didn't ring a bell at all when I first read it. :o

But I let it sit for a while, and am now thinking it might've been a holt made up by two cousins..? It wasn't a holt one could join, they just wrote stories together, and I made a few fanart pictures for them. I remember they had skis; they based the surroundings of their holt on their own environment, in Norway I believe it was.

I recalled they went by the name theredkatt, and found their names back in an old Yahoo group. They were Maja and Antonie. I can't find any other reference to them, so I don't know what they do now. I don't recall their holt name either.
Could this be it? I don't know which holt it could be otherwise, those relationships/appearances you mention don't mean anything to me.

As for Tatanka; I'll have to find the picture first. ;)

Thank you for the kind comment on my ElfQuest 3d character Dewshine.

Your 3D work is just awesome, Tamarien. :)

You were mentioned on the official Elfquest Facebook feed today and I was like "AFKE I KNOW HER WE USED TO ROLEPLAY TOGETHER" so I absolutely had to stop by and say hi <3
afke11 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2015   Traditional Artist
Hihi, thanks for the heads up! I am not following their page atm, because they post so many spoilers. :o
Am not sure I know who you are though, nothing in your gallery to give anything away! Though looking at the style in your profile picture I'm thinking... Jessi??
colorblindtyedye Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2015
Oh, haha! I always forget I never used this username back in my holt days -- but yes, Jessi!
afke11 Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2015   Traditional Artist
I'm happy to see I can still recognise someone by their work. ;)

Those holt days are so long ago, though sometimes it seems it doesn't!
I've just browsed some of my old art last week, because I was doing this 5 Days of Art challenge, which made me all nostalgic. :D
