More old art! The original version of Eternity Complex had elves. The current version does not. Today's piece was made for an extra web page that was about elves from way back in the day. All of the different races had their own illustration and I'll likely show those illustrations in the coming weeks.
Instead of elves the current version of the story has tree-people hybrids which I've been calling arboreals. I got rid of the elves because after thinking about the way magic worked in the world of Eternity Complex and the way the races evolved, the inclusion of elves didn't make a bunch of sense. Each race evolved away from humans and towards physical characteristics that were advantageous to the type of magic they practiced.
The elves were intended to have nature linked abilities but other than green tints showed no physical traits with plants. Arboreals on the other hand, can grow bark on their bodies for protection and have leaves in place of hair. Arboreals share many more physical traits with plants but since they have not been properly introduced, I'll refrain from saying too much about them.
Just a reminder, I'll be out of town next week and so there won't be a Monday new page alert or a Thursday post.
