Daily Deviation

Given 2012-12-03
Blood Elf by =MarcoRibbe-de ( Suggested by Nxriot and Featured by pullingcandy )
First off Impact - Well, this piece got me to click through from the DD thumbnails, and that takes more than just a photograph of a pretty woman, however well composed and lit it is.

Next - Vision and Originality - I'v never seen a costume quite like this in design before, never mind one that's so perfectly custom made for its model that you can almost see her spending months on making every single component and settling them just so.

Finally Technique - If you can't get focus and depth of field right on a static posed shot like this, just give up photography! The thing that's really impressive about this picture is the lighting which manages to appear to be coming from the crystal on her staff, and possibly from another similar source out of frame on her right.

Author's note - If you don't think this critique is fair, please tell me why.

29 out of 31 deviants thought this was fair.

Initially I was captivated by how crisp and regal this photo looks but as I looked at it, her pose seems rather awkward. It does not feel natural. You have done a great job on the lighting and retouching of the photo though, it adds to the mysterious feel of a fantasy world.

The equipment is also very befitting of a blood elf and the details are just simply wow. The design looks simple yet the effort isn't and the amount of minor details matches the whole outlook. I love the circlet especially and the silver hair has a nice flow to it.

Nice makeup and ears; I never liked generic pointy ears but the curves on the ears fits perfectly.

thank you! the funny thing is, there isnt even much digital half to this picture, the lighting was already done on set to look really comic-ish i'm pretty fascinated myself how good this works out every time ;)
