White Lotus covered in red by J-Taurens White Lotus covered in red by J-Taurens
A fanart piece I finally got to finish.
A Sylvari Ranger from the game Guild Wars 2

I wont say that this is completely finished, but its exactly how I want ,t its a steppingstone and I hope it will help me get better at what I'm trying to do.

Pretty cool, but as an archer I can tell you that the arrow is too small, thin, and doesn't appear to have any sort of nock.

It would be impossible to draw the bow back with an arrow that small, the arrow needs to be longer so that it can be drawn back and rest on the side of the bow (otherwise the arrow cannot be accurately shot, and would kind of just fly in a random direction forward), the thickness of the shaft as well as the materials determine how durable it is, a bow with a lot of poundage will break an arrow that cannot withstand the transfer of force on it, the nock holds the arrow and keeps it attached to the string during drawing and firing.

Whoa, your an archer? That is pretty cool :3
As for realism...well there wasn't much of it so sorry about that *wink* but if I need to find a way how to justify the way it looks~ *Its a magical arrow summoned from the persons heart, when pulled in bow it stretches longer while its thin it does not break, it being thin gives it advantage in the air resistance as it shoots out like a needle and pierces its target~ or something along those lines XD

In short, jieh, sorry I don't know much about archer but next time I'll draw a archer I'll try to be more realistic, I think that I was just very tired when I did the arrow part.

I kinda love this comment, but I think he tiny arrow was a choice of style rather than realism. I could be wrong. :3

I kinda noticed that the face is sort of like the Na'vi from Avatar... aside from that incredible work.

Jieh, there is this one face design that is a bit similar, but ofc more in human proportions then a na'vi face would be

Wow, this almost looks exactly like a character of mine's original design. :omg: She looks totally different now, but this is essentially what I envisioned but couldn't put on paper. :)

I think she and her armor both need some other shades of colour. maybe some dark green highlights for the armor and some blue with her hair - just suggesting though...
