High Elf Star Priestess


Hey sorry for no art for a while, but here,s my next piece. Let me know what you think =D

The idea behind this one is that there are a few elven women, chosen before birth that are the purest of spirit, blessed with more power from their goddess, and are born with no natural eyesight, but can see all that the stars see, so they can basically view anywhere around the world, except places corrupted by dark magic. They are history keepers, and the silent watchers of the good races, and healers in times of battle. If fatally wounded, they are like a star, basically like a supernova when a star dies, either healing allies around her, or likewise destroying foes, depending the need.

Wow! I love this!

Nice image with lots of details. love it. I have some problems with it though. First, it feels a bit flat. Maybe it's the colours? If you know about colour theory you would know that orange/yellow is a complementary colour to the lilac/blue violet that you are using in you'r piece. I can see some orange in those metal thingies in the headpiece, but it's not really orange at all. It's just greys in between red and pink. So the image ends up feeling a bit... monotone? I don't know man... i'm not that good at this stuff myself so maybe i shouldn't try to give advice. And maybe a monotone look was what you were after.

Anyways, those galaxy marble things are pretty cool man, but i think you could have put a bit more detail on those. I did a quick paintover... i could post the link if you're interested.

It's still an epic piece, peace.

lol thanks. Ya color is my weakest point, and I tend to over saturate a lot, so I was really trying to keep the color controlled on this one, and convey a soft lighting. Thanks for the tips though, cause i need them, I suck at the color crap! lol ;D

does the helmet help the elf at all or is it just aesthetic, also just as thought you could do an armored version for the battle mage version. but it looks fantastic keep up the good work.

RussFairchild responds:

Thank you. Its more aesthetic, but the gems do increase the power she gathers from the stars, and enhances her abilities to heal and calm those around her.

Five stars for you!
