3 female elf stereotype references - Painted in photoshop :D
Feel free to use them, but please give credit to me in your work and link it to me.

1. The Fair Maiden
She is beautiful, noble and gentle, usually a princess. For some reason or another, the Fair Maiden always ends up falling in love with a human man and gives up her immortal status for him.
Examples of her include Arwen and Luthien

2. The Queen
She is strong, impressive and ancient. She may be erratic at times, and always has an unlimited supply of swords and other magical objects to give away. For the good of her people, she can be ruthless and a little selfish towards other races. Don't piss her off.
Examples of her include Galadriel and Islanzadi (Inheritance cycle)

3. The Warrior
She is one tough chick, often stronger than the males of her race. She is characterized by her armor, bow and quiver of arrows (as well as ample boobs). She can shoot 3 arrows in one shot without missing her target and is way too scary to marry, which is why she often stays single.
There are too many examples of her :P

Did you ever read 'die elfen'? All prominent female elves fall exactly in these three categories. 1 noroelle 2 emerelle 3 silwyna, I'll never look at it the same way again, and it's my favorite series, I always believed it to be different, damn you and your perceptiveness now it's ruined!

I can't quite decide if you are slamming the stereotypes or just kinda wryly accepting them.
Oh well, wonderfully drawn either way and I'll have to see if I can find a way to create a different character in my own stories.
