Eilistraee, The Dark Maiden, Lady of the Dance, or otherwise known as Lady Silverhair. Based off the ink drawing in the 'Demihuman Deities' book (page 14). She had to be cropped for the portraits. Poo.
This is a compilation of the old system into a single score. There were 7 that made this score of 8.00 then rounded to 8.

I agree with Relsh. Very Art Nouveau. I like.

Clean and well-made with a very nice sillhouette. Black things are very hard to model--you did a great job on the skin color.

i figured out why i like this so much-it kinda reminds me of Aubrey Beardsley's work-you should check it out if you haven't yet.

Outstanding! The only thing that could make it better is if the Dark Maiden had her sword. Still great pic keep up the good work.

Oh my... G'Windinel! I haven't seen you in a while. Thanks for your very kind comment...I take it you think I've improved? ;) Glad to see people are enjoying her.

I like this a lot. The dream like light quality complements the pose well. If you change the background might I suggest that you only add shadows to hint at depth.

Relsh - thank you for the comment and suggestion. I was having a big problem with the background but I couldn't figure out what to do with it. I didn't want to take away from the figure, as she's the focus (obviously). I'm so happy you like the portrait. I love most of your work as well, so your comment really means a lot to me. :D

this is beautiful-on many levels-i love the perfect balance of black and white. just not sure about the backround-maybe it should be even more simple, or maybe she should look more 2d-drawn onto the backround, instead of existing within the space created by the backround your currently using. Just an opinion. Anyway, keep up the great work.
