~ Madra has a noble background but his house sent him to the arena to fight, knowing about his skills with the blade. He never had a choice.... but he gave the audience what they wanted.... to keep those safe that he loved. ~

Thank you for looking! Hell, this one has been a lot of work actually.... but finally I am done with it! Please no constructice criticism this time, I know it has its flaws but I could not do it any better and I am rather proud of this work still.

Mature warning for obvious reasons.

DAZ Studio 4 render, character is my own. All resources have been either purchased or created by myself. Photoshop painting / postwork... obviously.

It shows Madra, holding a chopped off head from another dark elf. He is covered in blood and the face of his victim is also most likely a bloody mess only... so it is very graphic, I had to put the filter on it.

Arrrr.. ich finde die Pose an sich, in der er dort steht, mehr als super erfasst! Du hast schier das gefühl von "Na? Willst du der Nächste sein?", wenn man ihn so ansieht.. ein Killer, aber ein sehr stylischer!

Er ist voller Adrenalin und bietet dem Publikum die Show, die sie sehen wollen. :) Er ist sehr effektiv beim Töten... ein guter Kämpfer aber er tut es eigentlich nur, um seine Familie sicher zu wissen. :)

Danke!

Constructive criticism be damned! This is an epic work of art that shows your depth and breadth as an artist.

No, this is not the typical pretty picture that you give us but this is still a stunning work of art that pushes the envelope of your skills and adds to the character's background. It gives us, your watchers, a hint as to the skills that you have as well as the complexity of your characters. No, they are not just pretty faces for us to fawn over. They are living entities with things in their lives that aren't all that 'pretty' but they are things that they dealt with. While this picture is intense to look at, it makes Madra more real because it gives light to his conviction of keeping his daughter safe.

I can tell from his face that he is not happy with what he had to do but I realize it was him or them. He looks like he wants to do nothing more than drop the head and weapon and walk away, turning his back on the whole affair. I applaud your ability to produce this and am in awe of your skills.:clap: Well done and thank you for sharing this.
