Majesty of the Eldar. [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To
Finally able to get to your link! Thanks for soliciting input - this is really fun!


I like the model so far - regarding this:

capture the magic and majesty you would expect of the Eldar

Yes, in that respect I like the brow area - I think the eyebrows themselves have a regal sort of look, kind of stern, but not exactly angry. I think it's a good balance, I like that.

Regarding the nose, right now I agree it falls into the 'handsome man' category - perhaps try a stronger nose, play around with the bridge area of the nose - the bridge makes such a tremendous difference in the appearance. Right now it's a classically proportioned nose, I don't know how easy or difficult it is to try different looks, but if you can try different nose shapes, particularly the bridge, that might get you more into the hawk-like or strong/sharp look ... not forbidding or threatening but lofty, that type of appearance.

Right now the mouth and chin are attractive and in proportion, although if the nose changes to be more prominent then the chin would have to become a bit stronger too.

I would say also that currently the design seems identifiable as European - changing some of the nose shape might give it a harder-to-identify appearance, which would then take it into that magical / majestic type of category, where you can't really place where a person who looks this way would come from.

I hope my ramblings above are helpful! This is really nice work and I am looking forward to seeing more of your designs :-).
