"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
that I would finish this one next so here it is: a painting of our player characters from Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
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...
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!
Take a look at the close up for some more details.Brushes: [link] [link]
