No no, don't blame Quellion! It's my fault! I was the one who put in that bit about Avash'aelia on top of the tower in my picture description :o  I thought it would have been cool....:o  :o  :o  :o

Thanks for all the comments! I will try to lighten her skin a bit without turning it to gray, perhaps with some subtle fake lighting on the opposite of the current one.

As Talia pointed, there's yet some detail missing on the walls to make them look older, and there's going to be a bit more of that greenish mist in the background and the floor.

As for the Queen, since finishing her is not work at all (given her size :D ), I'll keep her, and we can always erase her if it does not look good.

Well this makes me feel rather stupid, but where is the queen?  I have identified to possible ones.  There is a shadow cast upon the back wall, I do not know if that is her and there is a white clad figure up in the tower.

It's the white figure on top of the tower.

I guess one has to read the story 'Debt of Bones' to understand why she's at the top of that tower... :x

That's so beautiful... I love the shadows on the walls - definitely spooky and charmingly mysterious. However, my untrained eyes sees the clouds as squeezing the moon a little - it seems a little odd to have two parts of the clouds so heavy and the center completely devoid of wisps. Perhaps a faint outline to show the bits of the moon hidden by cloud?  


The artist usually sets out — or used to — to point a moral and adorn a tale. The tale, however, points the other way, as a rule. Two blankly opposing morals, the artist’s and the tale’s. Never trust the artist. Trust the tale.

Such a lovely picture! Oh how I adore shadow elves!

You might be able to solve the problem of the dark skin tone without making it seem gray by playing around with a purple hue on low saturation. It'd done the trick for me before.

But you definitely know more than I about such things ^_^;

Okeydokey, final version has arrived, take a look here:

(click on image to enlarge)



Quellion basically asks if the character appears too dark or if it is ok on your screens. While I think that it personally is quite dark (the face part that is) I guess it's not too dark. It's cool that it blend in a bit with the darkness and is half transparent at the lower part, so it seems perfectly alright with me :D  thumbup

The final details also make this picture it a great use for additional entries, e.g. the top right part can be used for the entry on Fá'áv'cál'âr. And we have some flowers there as well. The moon part especially is superb - truly an eerie sight! And all those details at the arch and these little murals... - Great stuff! Once again another masterpiece, Quellion!  cool

And to clarify what's this strange blotch there at the tower:

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
