Two fantasy art drawings of an elf

Elf : I used pencil to draw it then I added the color burn effect with Adobe Photoshop. This is one of three versions. I sent two to you. One is the original and one is the color burned one.
Note: Emphasis on the darkness of the eyes help out in making them look more female and very pretty. I used a standard eye format called "Anime Style"
It helps make the girl look a lot more female by adding a pointed chin and a pouty lower lip, the upper lip being a thick line. Emphasise the cheek and jaw line of the left side of her face. Hair made with quick strokes and shading.  The ears are just standard elf ears. 

Time Spent : 2 and a half hours

Both drawings are terrific examples of anime like style and it is amazing to see the difference that can be had by adding some color to a drawing. - Will
