Title  Yuan-ti female
Author  Phaere

I had a yuan-ti female on my list of pics to do for ages, and here she is finally. The skin was murder! I had this small picture of snakeskin and I had to create a texture for the whole body. In the end I feel it's turned out pretty well. I have used a celebrity as base image and I am curious if anyone will recognize her underneath all those scales. Added background, lighting effects, recolouring, the usual deal, but I kept it all quite simple.

I love most of your stuff but I don't like how she looks... I think she should not have a human nose or human eyes, she also looks to friendly for a yuan-ti... Just my opinion It's not anything against your drawing skills It;s just how she is portrayed...

Actually, yuan-ti were created by drinking some kind of brew that they used in their worship. The yuan-ti abominations, the ones who are most snakelike, are the ones who bred with true snakes to keep the snake qualities once the secret of the brew was lost; the pureblood yuan-ti, such as this picture represents, are the ones who bred with humans to do so. They were, in fact, human, but were genetically altered (more or less) and then bred; the later generations were more humanoid.

i'm sorry, but i think this portrait is one of your worst..
First of all, get rid of her nose, and give her snake eyes..

GREAT PORTRAIT. I don't thing that was strong enough, so here's some exclamation points: !!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, I'd have thought that you'd have made the scales a bit smaller in comparison with the size of the being. I'd hate having to continually rip pieces of clothing off every time they snagged on a scale...

Olivia, I believe Yuan-Ti are humans who have degenerated into having snake-like traits from their worship of degenerate gods.

That said, great portrait... hmm, I wonder if I can convince a DM to let me play a yuan-ti. [cackles madly]

oh, I definitely like this very much and I think the scales look great :)

Like the scales, but the head doesn't look Yuan-ti to me. (too human and friendly)

I like the background. Fits in well.. Maybe try to use it on some picture of a vampire or rogue, too.. ;-) Would be a shame to use it only for one picture.. Hmhmhm. Or what about a draconian in front of this ? That would be great, too. Especially for all those DL freaks like Iam ;) Nice work.Ja khaless zhah waela

Thanks for the comments, first of all. About the size of the scales: I think smaller scales would lose its detail in the game portraits because the pic will be too small then. Also I tried to create her after the NWN Yuan-ti creature (and that one had the same size scales more or less).
Yes, it is Carrie-Ann Moss. Well spotted :)

excellent, the only thing i see that could use any touch-up is her chest by her left (my perspective not hers) shoulder, kinda looks a little too indented. But the idea and... well, everything else is beautiful. Keep'em comin

Your work is great, but I think she's looking a little too friendly, just IMHO.

Well, she IS a large animal and larger animals tend to have larger scales. These look incredible!

Just one little objection (and this is really at the D&D person responsible for first representing Yuan-Ti females this way), if a Yuan-ti is a snake creature, it should not have breasts. That's a mammalian trait.

Um. Okay. Back to my book.

perhaps if the scales were smaller they'll look more like of right now, when I look at the small pic that focuses on her face, it looks like she's wearing mesh...just my opnion.Timmy C.
Everything is only because you think it is. For indeed, your brain can be interpreting your senses' signals which case everything that you think is real, is only a product of your imagination.

The scales look a little awkward in the face, but it's pretty clear you put a ton of work into this. Is it Carrie Ann Moss?

Hell! This must have been terribly difficult to do.
But it worked out pretty well! Nice job!
