This is super nerdy and cultural studies, but it's for a presentation I'm giving at the PCA-ACA conference in April in Boston. There's also a lot of background for it that I won't go into (like how Tolkien saw his version of elves as human or part of "the humane", and both elves and humans were variants of the humane). But, I don't Photoshop much (ok I use Gimp), and I was sort of proud of how it came out.
For Dragon Age fanservice (ha love that word), I present, Merrill as human. She's an elf. (My point is, somewhat, that most default elves are white people with ears. To some extent that's obvious. The photo manipulation makes it moreso.)
