The Alfar by Isriana The Alfar by Isriana
"The Dokkalfar are respected as sophisticated students of magic and diplomacy, yet it is their alluring presence that makes them so compelling. The dark elves are the ultimate manipulators, controlling the actions of others from the shadows. A proud and insular people, the Ljosalfar strive to preserve nature and shape it to their will. The light elves resist change, flash-freezing their ancient homeland to keep it in an idealized, timeless state. The Ljosalfar revere the principle of Justice, fighting time and again to defend Amalur against chaos and darkness."

I promised my brother :iconnazahnel: that I would finish this one next so here it is: a painting of our player characters from Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. :D
The left one is my Dokkalfar (the dark elf) lass Wren, and the right one is my brother's Ljosalfar (the light elf) called Aragil. It's funny that usually in character creation we end up with complete opposites even when we play the same game (my paragon FemShep vs. my brother's renegade MaleShep in Mass Effect, my elven paladin vs. his dwarven berserker in DDO and so on). The fact that we both chose to be Alfar mages is probably the closest we've ever come to a consensus... :XD: Their approach to things is still different, though - when in trouble, Wren will probably try to trick and persuade whereas Aragil is more likely to smash in anyone's face who stands in the way.
Anyway, I hope you like it! :peace: Take a look at the close up for some more details.

I liked these guys. Not just cause i was one of them. I'm sure i killed quite a few of them. I have no idea, you lose track after you've left 5000 corpses in your wake.
But mostly i love their regular clothes. Very pleasing.

The painting itself is very nice, although i wonder why the characters are depicted in lower level gear. Although some of it does get ridiculously ornate...

On a side note, how could you not be at least partly mage in this game? Magic is too much fun! And when you get Tempest, well...enemies might as well kill themselves.

a race hardly worthy of this much attention - the alfar i mean. A successful piece, regardless.

Well, it's not like there's abundances of choices in this game to begin with. Since it's either human or elf anyway, one might just flip a coin and see how it lands... :P Pretty much the only reason why I chose Dokkalfar was the skill bonuses - and that was before I realized that stealth isn't going to be much use for me in this game. Ah, well.
Nonetheless, I'm glad you like it!

you do a good job drawling skyrim and amalur. Tales of Vesparia, Witcher 2, and Final Fantasys 10 and 12 have, in my opinion, better atmospheres, settings and stories, and they also have better supernatural creatures. They are all RPGs, and, I think, over 50 hours long each. Vesparia and "the Wither are action games, but the witcher has a world similar to skyrim's. :ahoy:

Thank you! The Witcher series I'm familiar with (currently reading the book series) and I'm going to try those games at some point when I have more time... :D FF and Vesperia I will have to pass, unfortunately, since I only have a PC.

KoA was great. The combat was the best I've played in years, and the story was nothing to scoff at. It's too bad that 38 Studios went up like the Hindenburg.

I love playing as the Dokkalfar.

damn elves:|
Good work.
Why are so many people picking elves? Don't see logic of this choice:(
