Elven self-portrait by Akadio Elven self-portrait by Akadio

I decided to put all my new skills to the self-portrait (the last one was in 2015), so... I can say that I can surprise myself :D 
I also decided to add B/W version here (there's also a digitally edited version with red apple), may be I'll make a full-colored version in future. 

All patterns and textures are hand-made (some people have already asked :D)

I hope, you like my art !

Wow!   Now that's hot!   Amazing!   That is such a great look for you.   I even said that before you had the photo shoot when you wanted to go with a elven cosplay.    I see here you went more blonde with your hair and here it looks great.  

Very pretty!

I see you got your long nails and that tell tale apple.   I hope it isn't a POISON apple.  Then that would make you a dark elf.  

Beautiful job...this went into my favorites, no question about that!

Aaaaawww I'm so glad you like it! Yeah, I became blond here, I think this fact made me a bit mystical and insidious :)))

Yeah, my nails are my pride :) And yes, this apple is not poisoned :D But my mum said that I look like evil witch from Snow White :D 

Thank you thank you thank you :))))

Yes, very much so.  In general, I like you with darker hair, but here it works well.   It kind of had me wondering if you did go blonde for the photo shoot.  Perhaps you could try that for the next go round.  Perhaps go with a wig.

I would say how you drawn yourself above, you would fit right into a Lord of the Rings or Hobbit movie, easily.   I even said that I find you more attractive than Arwen / Liv Tyler.  It does kind of make me wonder if you could have been an actress :).

What?!?!?!  Why did your mom say that.   No way, you are way too pure hearted for that.    I would say that you would be parallel to Galadriel from Lord of the Rings.   I am a big fan of Cate Blanchett and she played that role so well and she was absolutely stunning:

What's more...she looks phenomenal when she's mad:

WOW!  

I don't get that comparison at all.   The Evil Queen from Snow White doesn't look anything like your character.

I like blond hair more than dark, but I've never painted my hair and still don't want to do this :)

Ehhh... They should invite me to 'wear the role' :DDD

I agree  with mum because I think I look a bit evil, I have got evil eyes here :D Very often my works match to my mood.... I was a bit nervous this time :(

Cate is wonderful actress I think :)

Have you seen my note ?:) I think you've missed it again :D

I guess that is usually the case.  Brunettes want to be blonde and vice versa.   I know if I still had my hair I would prefer it to be darker...more of a brown.   I don't blame you.  I like your color the way it is.  But like I said, you can always get a blonde wig for your costume.

'Play the role' would be the way to say it, but yeah, they could have.

Naw, you look very sweet.  You do have a slight devious look to your face (in the portrait)...but I wouldn't go as far as to say evil.

Yes, she is great.   The last movie I saw her in was Cinderella in which she played the evil Lady Tremaine.   Oh my!  She looked and acted great in that movie!

I LOVE her outfit too:

Wow!  She's absolutely gorgeous.  But in this movie she is a VERY devious woman and you can see that on her face.   She plays the role VERY well.  All of her outfits in the movie were amazing too.  I like the one above the best, but just check these out:

I can't stand the outfits on her 'daughters' in the film, but her outfits are fantastic.

But out of them all, that green outfit is the best.   She looks stunning in that one. 

This is the full dress, BTW:

The movie is worth watching too.  It follows the original storyline closely, which is good. The acting overall is pretty good.  But out of everyone, I like Cate's Lady Tremaine the best.

Actually since I been taking some time off from being online so much, I have not been answering notes, only messages...but I will get back to them later on in the week.
