Elf Character

I did this little portrait for a gamer boy who was the cousin of a friend of mine. The character is an Elven archer along the lines of Tolkien's Legolas. Elves are all pretty people and when I think of a pretty guy I often think of Richard Chamberlain, the TV actor who played hero roles all the way from Dr. Kildare in the early '60s to the British exile in Japan in "Shogun." So the Elf Archer looks like Richard Chamberlain. This is a tiny picture but I managed to put in a fair amount of detail.

"Elven Archer" is ink and watercolor on Fabriano paper, 2" x 2", September 1983.

NICE! And I did not see the Richard Chamberlin in it till I read that he was the inspiration, now I see him very clearly!
