Xenogears Elly Study by JakeMurray Xenogears Elly Study by JakeMurray
This was a study I did in preparation for the Elly oil painting. Since I didn't have an actual model to pose for the painting, I really wanted to get her face nailed down to the way I see it in my head. The result was this, plus drawing after drawing after drawing of her until I was able to get the necessary features memorized for use in the painting. Just a little something extra!

Thanks to everyone who's purchased prints of Fei. More are still available, so hop on over to my online shop if you're interested!

Thanks! Maybe one day if the mood strikes me I'll do a Miang portrait. She'd definitely be an interesting character to paint!

This one too. I'm behind the times apparently.

There's a soft vulnerability to Elly in your painting that belays your comments that you didn't have a model posing for you :)!
You've managed to capture a far-way, melancholic sadness in her eyes and mouth that makes come across/seem very much like a real woman.

And I very much agree with the comments before me. Thank you for making her 'beautiful and accessible' in a non-'Hollywood' way.
Again, great job. Cheers.
