I came to Elftown looking for inspiration. Boy, I sure came to the right place. Interesting place. Fascinating people. Had to draw.

This is a page with the impressions I got wandering around the Elftown. Just imagining what a name should look like. Don't feel insulted because of the images here, they're not about the people behind te names. Ok?


Just an interpreter I passed while crossing the market square.

And later in the evening, I saw a town guard performing his duty.

A The Town Herald town herald heralding... er.. in town. A loud clear voice was required. The job description did not mention a minimum length. But he has proven that even empty wine barrels have their usefullness.

This is page 1 of a two pager. You can probably guess what profession will pass by...

A building worker, specialised in working on high constructions...

A travelling bard. I didn't like his singing much, be he did put up a good show.

A town guide showing a family of dwarfs the nice places of Elftown .

I saw him in a flash, and I'm not even really sure I saw him, but I guess that's the trouble with Secret Agents...


Somewhere in The Maze. Don't ask me where exactly, though...

The Dungeon of Idiots. It seemed to me that building a dungeon for containing idiots shouldn't take much steel or stone. After all, they're supposed to be idiots...

An ordinary day scene at the Monk's Cloister...

"Well," thought the elf, "The Enchanted Elf Inn being at the other side of town, and with this rain, this Hobbit bar doesn't look so bad for my evening drink."
Later that evening, the elf decided this was not such a good idea...


A Halfling and a Duck quarreling. Probably something in the line of "If you weren't half a man, I'd hit you".
(By the way, I know what a halfling really is, but with ducks I only know the feathery thing that goes 'quack'...)

<img:> <img:> <img:>
This is how I imagine the Mayor of a place like Elftown. Someone who has seen and done it all. Twice. Who can keep a bunch of very diverse creatures together without major accidents...
Next to him, a cat I imagined could be his because of the same looks. (Like owner, like pet, you know.)
But then I thought 'naaah, no way the Mayor of Elftown would have an ordinary cat.' (It's a pitty I can't draw cats...)

The Elftown Brute Squad trying out some drinking songs.

<img:> <img:>
Meet my gullible test subject. I don't remember what I made him believe in order to get him to be test subject, but these are the 'Before' and 'After' pictures of a [Calico Tiger] Slobber Attack (tm).

A street child and his apple. The owner of the apple tree happens to be the employer of the not so very smart and just a little too heavily armoured brute.

I imagine Elftown as being a place where all kinds of people come to live. This is an orc couple trying to settle down in Elftown, maybe raising a family, trying to find a peacefull place of their own.

This is a sad story. When Flint the Troll lost his hero's licence for unregulated slaying of a dragon, he realised he didn't know any other professions and had to become one of Elftown's beggars.

Dirty Old Bags. Sorry, ladies, that one was too strong to resist...

The logical result of the dry branch in the path of one of the Panty Raiders! is left as an excercise for the reader, but it will involve something along the lines of Take Elftown's Panties Back.

An employee of the Elftown Lines, hired at the time where they didn't mention they were looking for equine candidates for their "Wanted, intelligent employees to carry around passengers" add.


Once, there was this Drinking Duel with [TheRogue] and [Calico Tiger], but now there's a whole Champion's Tournament, illustrated on Tournament Impressions.

Just like in any other town, once in a while, the circus puts its tents on the town square...

During the CryptoChallenge, [smakeupfx] hid a tantalisingly beautiful treasure behind a series of locks, and invited the Elftowners to try and pry it open.

2004-03-10 [Malnu]: nice work....indeed a wonder to behold

2004-03-10 [Calico Tiger]: *grin* You know what's ironic? There are very few male guards ;) This page is definitely on my favorites and watch list. Excellent work! *goes off to spam the rest of the council with advertising it*

2004-03-10 [May-lea]: Calico did her job... The rest of the crew is coming to have a look ^_^. Very Nice!!!I like the Town herald one (Specially the chicken) That's nice!!! Can't wait to see more!!! ;)

2004-03-10 [Athene Noctua]: Yes, she did do her job. This is a great page. I'm going to promote it even more!

2004-03-10 [Gone with the Tides of Fate]: HAHAHAHA I LOVE how you interputed the unseen!

2004-03-11 [Lerune]: Wonderful work! (here is comes -- we all knew it would) I would LOVE to feature it in the Herald! XD

2004-03-11 [Davorah]: OMG! This is so great!

2004-03-11 [ButterflyFairy]: Yeah, I definitely think it should be featured in the Herald...Especially since there's a lovely pic of a Heralder(I just love the chicken).;)

2004-03-11 [Yncke]: Thank you all! One of the next thingies here will also have some chickens in it, I just happen to like drawing them...

2004-03-12 [Malnu]: catch that blasted art theif....he's over there. *grin ... Patroller at work*

2004-03-12 [TheRogue]: *swings his mighty Hammer of Justice* GIT HIM!!! LOL.. man this is great!

2004-03-14 [May-lea]: "THIS IS A WORK FOR THE BRUTE SQUAD(tm)" ;)

2004-03-14 [teptep]: brute squad I thought that was the patrollers?

2004-03-14 [Calico Tiger]: Considering that Neither Rogue nor I are patrollers we're on the brute squad, I don't think that patrollers = brute squad ;) I could be wrong, entirely ^_^

2004-03-14 [teptep]: awww but rogue brought this up to me when he was a patrollers.

2004-03-14 [Malnu]: bah... brute squad is the elect few of us, who go above and beyond the call of duty, to right the wrong, to bring justice to those victims out there.

2004-03-14 [TheRogue]: who weild the mighty HAMMER of JUSTICE fairly and with vigor! HAZAAA! now all we need is a drinking song.. and some more brute squadders.. can i nominate some more people? *grin* cali.. hun? *slobbers on cali*

2004-03-15 [Calico Tiger]: Great new picture ^_^ And the look on his face is pretty much what he has to say. "Don't ask me stupid questions" ;)

2004-03-15 [May-lea]: Nice ^_^. You forgot his cat ;)

2004-03-16 [Stratakus]: The Mayor looks deep in thought.. kinda like "Hmm... why should I eat the red ones last?"

2004-03-18 [Shreya]: Aww the "halfling" idea is so cute!

2004-03-18 [jlcochran]: These are so cool!

2004-03-18 [Calico Tiger]: *pounces on the building worker and huggles her*

2004-03-20 [Yncke]: @[TheRogue]: Thanks for the brute squad drinking song idea!

2004-03-20 [teptep]: I don't drink.

2004-03-20 [Lerune]: Why not [teptep]? (Me being serious). Sometimes a nightcap is a good way to relax and unwind.

2004-03-20 [teptep]: I don't unwind I get drunk and that feeling is something I do not like, I also don't think beer tasts good.

2004-03-20 [Lerune]: I hate beer. >.< It is so nasty. But, something like a daiquiri or margarita (in moderation) is good to just calm the nerves a bit. Medically, alcohol is a "downer" contrary to what people think.

2004-03-20 [teptep]: I don't like any form of alcohol unless it is very very concentrated, i will drink a hards mike lemonaid and maybe a wine cooler but thats about it for me.

2004-03-20 [Lerune]: i could make you a strawberry daiquiri that you would swear didn't have any alcohol in it. =o)

2004-03-20 [teptep]: eh

2004-03-20 [Lerune]: *pokes [teptep]*

2004-03-20 [Calico Tiger]: It looks great, Yncke!

2004-03-20 [ButterflyFairy]: Ooooo,I LOVE strawberry of my favorite drinks.^_^

2004-03-20 [Malnu]: Which one am I? *grin* **picks up his mug of ale without question and chugs it.**

2004-03-21 [TheRogue]: AWESOME Yncke! such a treat to visit here to see new stuff..

2004-03-24 [Shining light]: this is amazing. do you think you could do one of the Monk's Cloister? i am in need of advertising.

2004-03-24 [May-lea]: Lol! I like the cat!!! ;)

2004-03-24 [Athene Noctua]: The cat is awesome!

2004-03-24 [Calico Tiger]: All hail Lilo!

2004-03-25 [ButterflyFairy]: Awwww.I love the 'butler Lilo'.Great work!!^_^

2004-03-28 [Paapuu]: Hey!!! What about the Halfling Party, or The Enchanted Elf Inn? Have you been there? you should go there.

2004-03-28 [ButterflyFairy]: LOL!That's too funny!!A Calico slobber victim!!!

2004-03-28 [May-lea]: LOL!! Haha!!! Excellent!!!

2004-03-28 [irulan]: That is great! lol! 

2004-03-28 [TheRogue]: ROFLMFAOGPMPAS (rolling on the floor laughing my fawking ass off gonna pee my pants and shit) XD

2004-03-28 [ButterflyFairy]: LOL!That's the longest acronym ever Rogue.;)

2004-03-28 [Stratakus]: That's pretty much how I picture it after the dreaded slobber attack.. But she does it when I do something bad or good so I'm not sure weither or not it's a good thing or a bad thing... Wait, what am I talking about. It's Slobber, how is slobber ever good?!

2004-03-28 [Calico Tiger]: LOL! *pounces on Yncke and huggle/slobbers him* That's great!

2004-03-29 [teptep]: if I see a picture of me bitching I am gonna bitch!

2004-03-29 [May-lea]: Good thing the drawing wasn't about [Calico Tiger]'s other side.... ;)

2004-03-29 [teptep]: eeeew. dingle berries.

2004-03-29 [Calico Tiger]: I don't have dingleberries >_< *drowns teptep in slobber*

2004-03-29 [teptep]: downs calico in fish eyes!

2004-03-29 [teptep]: drowns calico in fish eyes!

2004-03-29 [Calico Tiger]: *farts at teptep*

2004-03-29 [teptep]: :takes out a fan and lets the smell waft twords cali.

2004-03-31 [Calico Tiger]: The monk looks great! I love how he's floating along while in a yoga/meditative pose *grin*

2004-04-03 [Calico Tiger]: *laughs* The glint on the teeth of the bard is such a nice addition!

2004-04-03 [ButterflyFairy]: Cool bard--I just love that grin.^_^

2004-04-03 [May-lea]: Lol! Nice!! A fellow bard! Did it start raining when he sang? ;)

2004-04-04 [Yncke]: Oh, you think that was the reason for that odd little rain shower while the sky was clear?

2004-04-04 [May-lea]: *Grin* Most probably. Or it was a wizard playing a trick on him...

2004-04-05 [Rennie]: good stuff ^_^

2004-04-13 [Shreya]: Haha the slobber attack is CUTE!!

2004-04-13 [Calico Tiger]: *slobbers on Shreya*

2004-04-24 [Paul Doyle]: *sorely missing the mooning and slobber*

2004-05-03 [grieverx13]: (to the slobber attack pic) Man...OOOOUCH!!! :) heehee!

2004-05-03 [Sheona]: Cute pictures. Love the slobber attack one!

2004-05-03 [TheEvilHat]: ha, i love the dungon of idiots, and i belive that if i dont stop doing dum stuff ill get thrown in there. =/

2004-05-04 [Paul Doyle]: For some reason the style of these sketches reminds me of Thomas Nast.

2004-05-23 [Calico Tiger]: Yay! Bearded dwarf woman!

2004-05-24 [Yncke]: Yeah, I know. I read to much Discworld. *grin*

2004-05-24 [May-lea]: Discworld is great! Terry pratchett is a genius! I think bearded female dwarves are fun, but i like the small bearded child even better! ^_^

2004-05-24 [May-lea]: BTW, the woman is on the left, right!?

2004-05-24 [Yncke]: Well, with dwarfs, who knows? ;) (But that was the intention, yes.)

2004-05-24 [May-lea]: Hehe. The pretty eyelashes and the hair. That's how I guessed... ^_^ Nice drawing, really!!

2004-05-27 [Shining light]: thanks for doing one of the Cloister! it made me laugh...but in a god way! thanks heaps.

2004-05-27 [Shining light]: thanks for doing one of the Cloister! it made me laugh...but in a good way! thanks heaps.

2004-06-29 [Yncke]: Thanks. *smile. Someone's envying me. Wow!* Now that I don't have exams (for a while, at least) I hope to have more time for some more people...

2004-07-24 [Paul Doyle]: The Agent looks like Gussie :P

2004-07-26 [spiritsreign]: great job! you really enhance the elftown scene (i don't think that makes sense) but no matter still a great job done!

2004-08-01 [Ocean Soul]: Aah so amazing, full of good ideas and all.. I especially like the town guide, the sectret agent and the elf in the hobbit bar (i saw him that night, and he indeed had some "space problems".......)

2004-08-03 [Shining light]: yes, I especially like the Monk's cloister one... heh, very funny.

2004-08-09 [K.a.c.]: ya, that is cool...a floating monk...oh! I just thought of something! There's this game called Golden Sun: The Lost Age, and there are theses monks that are learning how to levitate by deep meditation...

2004-08-28 [acyaws]: THIS IS FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2004-08-29 [SsrVoice]: This is an awesome idea, Nice job!

2005-06-02 [Yncke]: I'm glad you like them *happy*

2005-06-17 [Stratakus]: Being the only l;ong haired member of the Panty Raiders... I'm going to assume that's me. But I'd have cleaned the whole line and swiped the guards nickers too.

2005-06-30 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: ahahahahhaaa...Ah this is amazing! I love it so much

2005-06-30 [Yncke]: I'm happy you do. :)

2005-07-01 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: Your work is so amazing. I have trouble drawing non-stiff people...all my pictures look like movie posters but you can get so much movement and expression into these with so few lines! How?

2005-07-18 [Galain]: These are bloody marvellous! They really ought to be published as a book entitled 'Elftown Impressions'. I'd certainly buy a copy, all profits to ET of course. In fact, if anyone else is interested in something like this - send me a message.

2005-08-15 [Artsieladie]: Great art! Fantastic! Gee, I think that this would be great for those to see that are new members, b/c it portrays in such a great way the 'jist' of Elftown! :P

2006-04-20 [travs the bean]: tis awsome shame i did not find it sooner:)
