Tranquil Evenings by Niraven Tranquil Evenings by Niraven
One of my first two personal artworks of the year! About time, right? This one's of Niraven character, Galary.

Galary is a Pureblood Elf. Unlike your typical Elves, however, Purebloods like Galary inhabit a jungle environment, not a forest.

This one also shows a slight redesign: Galary now has braids in addition to her long flowy hair. I imagine tranquil evenings in the jungle would look something like this.


Galary & Niraven myself.

Hi there! It's a lovely picture. :) And so green! Green is absolutely my favorite color (and for all the reasons demonstrated here: it's the color of pure, raw nature!).

The topic of "pureblood" has me a bit curious, though. What do you mean by "pureblood"? Are purebloods elves who don't mingle with other races for so many generations? Are you only pureblood if your hair and features are a certain color and shape?

How come they live in the jungle as a general "rule"? Are non-purebloods allowed to live in the jungle as well, or are they kind of forced to stick to forests? If the former, do non-purebloods who want to live in jungles get treated differently by their pureblood neighbors? Is there a "white flight" phenomenon, where purebloods rush to the jungle to get away from the non-purebloods?

Sorry, the questions are kind of weird, I know. ^^; But I was just wondering.

No problem, I'll try and answer all your questions as best as I can! :thanks:

"Pureblood" is really just a reference to their genes being closest to that of the original "founders", if you will. They're closest to the roots of their kind in that sense. :) "Pureblood" genes more often than not feature a certain ear shape and hair of a few general colors. Being called a Pureblood is really by someone other than a Pureblood Elf, who views them as being close to the roots of their kind and thus establishes them as such, and they accept it with no qualms. :aww:

Purebloods have been long established within the jungle and thus refer to it as their home. By general rule, I didn't mean a rule specifically. ^^; Non-Pureblood Elven creaturs/people(hermits, travellers, animals, Blackwood Elves, etc) may also live in the jungle but tend not to, as the jungle environment isn't generally enjoyed by many others. :giggle: Other inhabitants don't get treated any differently despite the fact they're few and far between. There's no descrimination with the Pureblood Elves towards others, though they tend to keep to their jungle to avoid war and confrontation that doesn't immediately involve them as they're a pretty peaceful folk.

Hope that answers your questions! :nod:
