After doing that design-binge of Tolkien's Elves (and Edain lol), I got inspired to do a revamp of my own characters! I hope you guys don't mind the constant design spam lololl
So if you've been following me for a long while, you'll probably recognize these ones XD For those of you who don't know, these are the first five of my main OCs from The Arlenian Chronicles (my "main" series of stories, you could say XD): Mintelania, Espelzara, Bravesoul, Trila, and Musicanna. The first four are sisters, and Musicanna, an only child, is their cousin. Mintla was born a full elf cuz of magic reasons, and she'd technically be a High Elf (I think). However she was labelled a Dark Elf because she wanted to stay with her human family, turning her back on the other elves in the process. Her three sisters wear European-inspired dressed, while she has elvish influence in her clothes. And Elza wears the high neck because I've always drawn her wearing a turtleneck, and I'm not about to stop now loll Musicanna's dress is heavily inspired by traditional Russian clothing.
I also altered their hairstyles a bit: Trila and Musicanna used to have bangs, but I took them out so that they'd look more medieval-like. Elza keeps her bangs because she's an odd ducky :D And Mintla's hair (in-story) used to be super long like all the other elves I've drawn, but she cut it.
The next batch will be up tomorrow!
