Wine And Wisdom by Mavrosh Wine And Wisdom by Mavrosh
Ilphaz is a Dhampyr Tiefling which means that a vampire actually mixed his blood with a Tiefling lady. Even though Ilphaz is not immortal, he can indeed grow very very old. Although not driven to consume blood for survival as their undead progenitors are, dhampyrs nonetheless know a lifelong desire for blood that nothing else can truly sate.

Ilphaz is sensitive to light and pretends to live at night. He restored an abandoned chapel to now live within the old stone walls which he finds very cliché himself... being part undead! Ilphaz has a very black humor actually and  he also very ironic about himself. Most people mistake him as pale Tiefling which makes his life hard enough already.

Thank you for looking!  This one actually was a lot of work and now I am oficially in love with this guy... just look at those horns! Thank you SickleYield for doing me that favor and helping me out with those!

I got away from the golden horns though as with this brand new set I am actually very happy with a natural look of them. Made the maps myself.

DAZ Studio 4.6 render with Photoshop painting. Ilphaz is my own.

I love how relaxed and laid back he looks in this image. And I think you made a good call
with the texture of the horns. The texture you made suits him perfectly!

Reife Männer können ja soooo sexy sein! Das hast du mal wieder bewiesen. Mich haut es hier glatt um, wieder mal. Tolle Atmosphäre und die tropfenden Kerzen bringen mich auf Ideen. Ob er heißes Wachs auf seiner nackten Haut mag...? :D (Big Grin)

I like the aged roughness in his face. Makes it believable that he has seen much, knows much and in the moment doesn't care what you think is right. :D

Oh ja...jetzt wirkt er nochmal ganz anders, auch älter und fast schon ein bissel grimmig. Diese starken Wangenknochen und das markante Gesicht lassen ihn in der Frontalansicht fast schon diabolisch wirken. Die Pose ist so schön klassisch "Vampire"...hab schon etwas in der Art erwartet. ;)
Schönes Bild!

Aww, dankeschön! Lustigerweise habe ich BIlder, wo die Augen absolut lebensecht kommen und bei ähnlichem geshader wirken sie bei anderen BIldern eher flach... Manchmal ist es mir ein Rätsel und ich würde es so gerne verstehen! ;)

Now this... is a true example of Deadly Handsome!

where oh where to start...
Love that shirt. So thoughtful of Ilphaz to wear something transparent so we can see the muscle tone.
And yes, I do like his horns.

I love the texture of his hair.... and the hair on his head isn't bad either ;)
One set of silky tresses to run my fingers through, and one patch to tickle my fancy ....... yes you CAN tell where my mind is! And no I am not ashamed of it

I love his hair color.  Very luscious and matches well with his shirt.  I can only imagine how pale his skin is considering this picture has such light reflecting off of him.  In his other picture he is very pale.  

I love his shirt!  It matches his 'personality' very well.  And I also like the fact that his face has some 'age' to it.  It doesn't appear as a cliche type of young and absolutely perfected guy.  I like a guy with some wisdom to him!

Like Carraig!  :giggle:

Yes, I do!  They have a type of handsome beauty to them that I find charming....and trusting (probably not a good thing)  LOL  

Oh take your time with him!  It's not like Alasdair's going anywhere anytime soon.  If he is...he better take me with him, damn it!  :lmao: :la:  He'd probably get a kick out of your guy here since he seems to embrace the 'cliche' vampire type.  Heck, I had a dream once about renovating an old English church in the country as a home.  LOL Then...I developed a deep seated fear of zombies.  So that dream house sort of went down the drain.  :lmao:
