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. Well done.
The female elf looks so damn hot. The male one looks kind of like frankestein's monster with big ears. 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!
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?
