Well done.  They are dark both in appearance and intention.

Love this! Fantastic job. It's nice to see dark elves with something other than white hair.

They look a bit like vampires, especially the male one. But they sure are dark individuals from the night with cruel weaponry

Same as normal elves on two ways- 1) beautifully intricate clothing and 2) stunningly deadly weapons. But also complete opposites- nice

I absolutely love these. A few months ago last year I was looking for dark elves (such as these ones) as references to personal villains in a Legend of Zelda fanfiction I'm writing (and currently revising) One of them, a demon king type guy, I couldn't figure out what to make him look like. Then I found these ABSOLUTELY PERFECT FREAKING PICTURES, and since then, my villain has taken up a resemblance to your dark elf-man, there. Not exact, but very close to it. So, for that inspiration, I thank and credit you.

The background makes me imagine that they are in some elaborate underground dwelling. They obviously just got done with a few "paintings" of their own, and if I had seen that, I would be running in the opposite direction. :ohnoes: Well done.

Are they influenced by anything, or completely your own design? :) they're very intimidating which makes them that much cooler. Very nice work

The female elf looks so damn hot. The male one looks kind of like frankestein's monster with big ears. :D You should consider making another painting of that female elf, everything about her is so awesome.

great detailing. Love the slight male;/female armor variations. Especially like the taloned feet on the woman. But, she miiiight not want to get in a fight with someone possessing a large blade....one cut up the center and it's all over :) But who cares about realism on fantasy ladies anyhow!

Keep up the good work :)

I think I agree with the "one cut up the center and its all over" but I think the reason she allows herself to wear something like that is confidence. She's THAT dangerous, that she does something like that just because she can

Yep, they do look dark. But as far as I know Dark elves are usually described to be as beautiful as all elven kind in fantasy, but these two rook rather gasthly. Or are they based on the dark elves of mythology and not fantasy?

but.. these are not gods, are they? I do not recognize any god of dark elven deities in them. Unless you can tell me which ones are they? Wait, no, they are your vision of dark elves, am I correct?

Im stunned by the armour. You really caught the typical drowen style, I like it a lot. Slightly worried about faces position... a little too low maybe?
