Ethyja by artastrophe Ethyja by artastrophe
concept for my half-elf PC's mother I did last night... she didn't end up looking quite how I wanted, so I quit. x3
I have such a hard time focusing adding detail anyway, sigh. I really really need to find something deserving of the effort, but I'm afraid nothing ever seems worth that amount of time to me. :P

anyway, she is an oracle who was most likely driven mad by spirits (although, I think all Chaotic-Neutral characters are crazy by default). ;)

I love what you did with her skin in this picture! Her eyes also look unfocused, like she's looking off into the distance or I guess in this case into the future or past? I also noticed that her pendent has water coming out of it? Is there a reason/story for that?

hahaha ^^; I actually totally stole the pendant. Well, at least that part of it. I hadn't thought of it looking like water, though (that was just my lazy lack of detail), but that is an extremely cool idea! :D

the purple part of it is because her birthstone is crystal, according to my FR resources, heehee. But, no, I really haven't developed her character much at this point to give her anything too specific yet. ^^

The eyes… the eyes! Just a simple dash of colour just makes them really look completely ethereal. Wow.
