Hi, all. When I returned to role-playing games late last year, I noticed that elves are now generally depicted long ears like kangaroos or rabbits. When I was young, elf-ears were merely slightly pointed, like Mr. Spock’s.
My question is when did this happen? Was it some video game or some show that elongated elvish ears? Or was there some particular artist that popularized it? Does it mean anything, in your view?
