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

Hey Loresilme.

No i didn't intend for my post to be made entirely of your post... i get the feeling this forum is a little different to the ones i'm used to attending hah!

I've made a couple of changes to Glorfindels face. most notably i've sharpened the nose somewhat, and angled the jawline more severely. this should give him a narrower, hawk-like appearance. i've also adjusted the brow slightly... i've kept the brow line itself in the same place, but altered the angle of where the eyebrow (hairs) will be when he's ready. again going for that slightly alien, hawk like appearance. this is much closer to where i want him to be, and hopefully he still reads as that "handsome, beautiful man".

the real challenge is going to be the hair. computer game rendering engines hate hair, and long hair is almost impossible. but we're going to try some things that haven't been done yet just to see if they work. that stage comes later though, still in the sculpting stage right now.

here's an updated pic of the face:

in terms of armour, i was going to use this as a basic reference with regards to shape, but the detailing would be more ornate and "pretty".

with the cloak being styled like this (i love the way it wraps over his shoulders and behind his back)
