- The Dark Elf - by Anathematixs - The Dark Elf - by Anathematixs
I think it's been months since I've posted something new, so it's about time I did.
And here it is:

A friend of mine showed me the newest trailer to Warhammer Online and I fell in looooooooooooooooove.
Dark Elf for the win.... seriously.
She looked so awesome I just had to paint her.
So I did ^^

I didn't want it to be an exact copy of her, but I think it's quite clear that there is a lot of reference taken from her.

If you want to, you can take a look at it here: [link]

This one is dedicated to that particular friend who was kind enough to introduce me to her =P
Cheers hun!

The darkness with the blues and purples are excellent. It is very nice! Dark elves are always a winner in my book.

Just so you know this picture helped inspire my character: D'ereen. Only D'ereen has purple eyes, and white hair.

Oh wow, that's cool :D So she'd be kind of a mix between this one and the "Asmodian Sorceress" painting I did ^_^

I'm sorry, I get a little excited when people tell me my art inspired their OC's... It's a very big compliment :)

Yeah. D'ereen is one of the craziest characters I have ever made. I wrote her up like 5 years ago. So here is a little more excitement for ya. I have been inspired by that piece of art for 5 years. :)

How the %&# did you manage to create that kind of ambient light :O!?!

3 light-sources:
1. From the staff (which is the bright white-blue you see on her chest, face and shoulder.
2. Backlight, behind her, reflecting on the skin, the background and the staff.
3. Fill light, on her back, to the viewer's right outside the picture.

( Can you tell I do photography too? xD )

But that's pretty much how I did it.
Not all the lighting would be the same in a live-model situation, because I kinda played around with it, but that was the base for it.

Thank you soooo very much for the compliments!!
And I hope that answered your question =D
