Hi!

This is one of the best Eldar-related arts I've ever seen. I created this account practically with a sole purpose of telling you this in a comment :)
Fantastic job on this and other arts! After 10+ years of playing Craftworld Eldar, I'm starting a Dark Eldar army - and I have to say, in my life I encountered but a few things as enjoyable as your DE gallery. Thank you!

I'm not too fond of the Dark Eldar for their cruelty, almost meaningless existence, and a passion for parkas. But I like your work. Because you draw them not as elves, and humanoids as the of the World WarHammer. It gives me a special respect.

You are getting so much more realistic; the changes are very evident from the facial structure, to the eyes, and even the body concept (that I can pinpoint if even slight change with armor), he looks MUCH more Eldar specific now.

Dark Muses above this is looking even more fantastic than it was before on your first try. You are truely magnificently talented, Beck. :heart: :faint:

My Russian is a bit rusty but, yeah, he has point - soul stones on the weapon, his collar is kinda off center, not sure about the legs though =) Aaand, after I basically copied the former comment it's time to put one on my own =)

I don't really mind the soulstones on the weapon - after all they were only one race (eldar and dark ones) at some point. Do Eldar have such optics on their weapons? I wasn't aware of that or simply didn't noticed... until now that is =) That badge thingie that somewhat holds his half cape doesn't look very Eldarish to me. His face has a dark expression but it's color is too bright I think. that's it, I hope I'm not too harsh, and how can I be, since I'm not really into Eldar affairs x)

Как ты умудряешься фабрицировать арты с такой скоростью? Это все темная магия. Темная эльдарская магия! Но тут хотябы есть к чему придратсься)))
1) почему у темного эльдара камни душь на оружии?
2) либо это мастерски переданая быдлопоза и это эльдарский гопарь, либо у него очень сильно выдвинута вперед шея.
3) по сравнению с торсом у него малюсенькие ноги. Даже для эльдара они очень тонкие.
4) опять наплечники плоские)
5) защита шеи странно повернута вместе с головой

:D неа, не так уж быстро все рисую. Очень много времени ушло.
1) я вот и сам не понял. Знаю точно что инкуби имеют камни крови bloodstones ну а на оружий у ДЭ что за камешки... даже и не знаю.
2) :D чуть не упал со стула... хаха ты прав. чтож терь сделать? либо торс выпрямить либо голову...
3) поправлю.
4) поправлю. :)
5) точно.

P.S. спасибо ><

Ну, чтобы сфабрицировать что-нибудь тривиальное у меня уходит около недели (с учетом перерабатываемых мной тонн чая и бошкотрясения, которое поддерживает вдохновение, которые занимают 99 и 9 в периоде % времени)))
1) вставь гранит. Так разногласий с беком точно не будет) Ну или можно просто какие-нибудь узоры-руны-треугольники-черепа-зарубки вставить.
2) у нас уже имеются быдлосиры, чоткие авенджеры, теперь и темные эльдары подключаются))) торс надо выпрямить и голову передвинуть или это будет меголенивый эльдар, который на что-то облокачивается во время изображания пафоса)
3) Hellyeah
4) Hellyeah
5) Hellyeah)

Plan and simple: I love it. Nice armour design, realistic face, and all the colours contrast each other well, without being garish.

Looking great thus far! Very sorry you didn't more to go off of with him, he's still kinda a work in progress for docile-dragon since I poked him out of his space marine norm to create a DE haha.

Poser figure artist should be VERY helpful--no wonder you have such great poses and more to come with other future pieces now using it!

I LOVE him so far man. I'm not sure if it is an easy fix but the lance looks a little small. o,o If it's not an easy fix don't worry about it.

Decals...hmmm Maybe some kinda of larger back spike? I found this image so far. Maybe these will give you some ideas.

I really think it's just a matter of what "looks cool" Just go with that as far as I'm concerned.
