My Games Workshop days are long behind me, still... lithe, wolfish women with pale skin, barbaric dark hair and pointed, pierced ears ? You now have my full attention. The savagery in her eyes is mesmerising, and I cannot imagine a better picture of a Dark Elf (or Eldar).
Why did this not show up in my inbox? dA must be on the fritz again.
Awesome rendition of Lelith. Just as menacing as only she can be, even without a weapon in hand.
Gotta ask: That gemstoney-thing above her breast, is that a stimm-injector or what is it? Because it feels in-congruent with the background material that says she doesn't use combat drugs. She's too awesome for that.
1st thought was : darn, why haven't I faved it yet ? (and then I realised my Devwatch notifications are like a weedgarden : totally savage and unkept...)
and for the cosplay : I had in mind to do it for a convention in the begining of August in Poland, but it was too difficult to organize and finally I'm staying in France. But I still have this cosplay in mind, and am currently working on it (on a physical level, because I also plan the performance that goes with it OF COURSE ^ ^)
anyway, Beckjann is by far the most inspiring Dark Eldar artist, no one conveys their essence as he does ! (even official art is total crap by comparison)
Very well done! You've captured all of her spiteful beauty all in one set swoop of expression plus body language. That guy does have great stock images--good choice in models Overall great job--the hair is looking more natural in flow and texture.
