Dark Elf by Mavrosh Dark Elf by Mavrosh
A portrait shot of my RP character Socair. Yes, it is rather dark and you might want to hit "download" for the full size view.... if you cannot see anything, you might want to adjust your monitor though. It is not too dark.

Somehow he seems to be alive here, I don´t know. This picture is.... I don´t know, it is scary in a way... O_o

DAZ Studio 4.5 pro render with almost no postwork. I painted like.... 5 hairs this time, hahaha...

I don't often comment on DeviantArt, but I have to praise this picture. Something about your closeups really bring your characters to life, and this one's absolutely breathtaking. The texture and play of color, especially with black as a predominant color really speaks to your skill here. It almost feels like you could reach out and touch him. Beautifully done, Ms. Mavrosh.

Thank you very much for this wonderful feedback! I love doing closeups, they are very challenging but I love trying to get the details right. :)

Yep, that fits perfectly for "The war of the spider queen" heroes .. but there were Drows and that is a... Helmorui ?

Yup, Helmorui. They are dark elves as well but their culture has differences. Some things are similar though. If you are interested in them, you might like to check out *Siobhan68 because it was her who developed them for a RP campaign. :)

I cant answer that... b/c I dont see that many blue dark elfs...

most are painted in shades of greys... b/c if the artist painted them intirely black you wouldnt be about to see their form/bodys

white light on black of any 3D form appears grey to even pure white depending on the strength of the light... or the reflectiveness of the surface (shineyness) any coloured light or ambient light from surrounding coloured objects may make them appear in shades of purples... or blues or green or what ever colour is strongest... but if there was no light at all you wouldnt be able to see them at all.

any light will colour black some way just as the same thing happens when it will colour white...

he is not a Drow but a Helmorui, based upon the lore of a dear friend of mine, *Siobhan68. They have blue eyes. :)

This is probably my favourite picture of him. He looks so alive! I love the texture to his skin and his eyes are amazing. His jaw looks so strong and his features look so elegant. *sigh* Very, very nice. The splashes of colour that there are, are perfect for the whole work. I would love to commission something like this. Well done and thank you for sharing it.:heart:

I think, I will get my commission stuff ready the upcoming weekend... because finally I have a little bit of time then. :) Since this is a portrait, it should be possible to work on something like this then. ;)
