This is absolutely brilliant. As a lover of serious dark elves ( I.E. Ones wearing respectable clothing), this is one of the best pieces I've seen in a long time. I salute you.

Intended or not, but I love how it's from the perspective of the Dark Elf. The darkness of the woods is familiar, comforting, normal; the sunlight breaking through the canopy is too bright, alien, painful.

Good art. Albeit I find it weird. I only know of the Dark Elves due to the works of Salvatore. However there the were described as ebon-skinned. But here and in practically every illustration I came across they are depicted with gray skin.

Thanks! Elves from Salvatore do have ebon skin. This one is not from Salvatores books. He is just... different elf ;) I think the best Dark Elf has been depicted by Todd Lockwood.

You mean this one?

And actually even in the few games from the Forgotten Realms series the dark elves I had seen (I think even in the guide to the underdark) they were portrayed grey and not ebon.

Yes. He did a lot of images of Drizzt for Wizards of the Coast and Salvatores books [link]

Sadly not the ones of the Dark Elf Trilogy and following books I read years ago. The cover of Starless Nights showed an old man in his sixties I think. While the age was correct I doubt that the artist had any idea that he was painting an elf that still looked like a human barely in his early twenties.
I think one should know what he/she illustrates. :roll:

It's true. I usually read books before I will illustrate them. This is not a great feature, because not all books worth it.

Well, you won't know whether a book is worth it before you read. Thankfully e-books are not so expensive and there are e-book readers :)
