This scene is my tribute to R.A.Salvatore’s fantasy book series about legendary Drizzt Do’Urden - the dark elf who rejected life of lies and evil ways of his family and was exiled by his kin. After many years of surviving in the caves and endless tunnels he decides to head for the surface. First three books of the series tell the story of how he manages to finally escape the depths of the Underdark and begins new life on the Surface. Among his new friends there is a beautiful step-daughter of the dvarven king (Battlehammer) - Cattie-brie. Young woman sees the dark elf for what he is inside, not for the color of his skin. Quotations are taken from books 1,2 and 4.
I made this scene for Hand-painted Storybook Scene Challenge. Everything is painted (I did not bake any light) and modelled in Blender 3.0. All the concept art is done by myself based on my imagination, books, existing illustrations of Drizzt and Cattie and my life experiences.
I hope you like it!
