Wow, the attention to detail, particularly on the shoulders and the face is absolutely stunning.  I also like how you were able to work in some character background with the stag in her hands.

Very nice colour scheme, beautiful lighting however I am confused how an ele could portray a light force resembling a stag, it does not appear to resemble water or lightning and to me kind of looks like she is casting an Expecto Patronum spell. If I hadn't read she was an ele, I would have assumed she was a mesmer as it appears to be more of an illusion spell than an elemental spell as there is nothing in the picture that gives the impression that she is an elementalist.

Either way good job, I look forward to seeing more :)

Thank you! The stag (and the image in general) is referencing the story options you can choose when creating sylvari, without going too into detail the stag (and the night cycle) is part of a dream which i can understand isn't all that obvious, but i have a bad habit of being a bit on-the-nose with my work KD

Very lovely art piece!   It really showcases the cool sylvari bio-luminescence.   Great design on the sylvari themselves too.   The stag is a brilliant little touch.

Post more stuff when you get the chance!

A bit of a sketch today - This morning during the stress test i finally got around to making my asura, i thought thief was pretty great, right up until the point where i discovered my ranger friend had world's most awesome pink moa...

Haha! Pink moas for the win ;D

If there are any professions you haven't tried yet or didn't even plan to play at all, try them as soon as you can - they might surprise you even more :)

I'm kind of hoping for more stress tests so i can get some quality time on engi and necro xD, so far though this game has done an awesome job at making all of the professions amaazing, it's unfortunate they can't all have pink moas though!

On Engineer, just four words: Jump Shoot and Flame-thrower. /win
Necros are quite awesome too, you will love them!

And I am 99% sure there are pink moa minipets out there, so in a way all your characters can have them ;)

;D The only thing better than a profession restricted Pink (combat) Moa pet is a tiny Pink Moa minipet which while isn't able to fight, it is still available for any characters... and it's cute too!

Your sylvari is beautiful! Do you have a deviantart page or anything? I'd love to see more of your work even if it wasn't GW2 stuff.

Awww, that asura thief looks so forlorn like they're thinking 'I wish I had a pink moa'.  :lol:

Beware trying the other professions!   I thought I had my choices made then I tried some of the others and now I can't decide anymore!   Necros are pretty darn awesome but I was surprised by how much I liked the Mesmer.    I couldn't quite get a handle on Engineers when I tried them the one time but flamethrowers might be too awesome not to roll one.

@Murke @Formaldehyde
Thank you! I'm afraid this is the closest thing i have to an internet gallery at the moment

@Doctor Overlord
Haha yes i find myself already heavily debating which classes i'll give the most attention, what i'm going to do is get 7 or 8 character slots as soon as i can because it would be a shame not to give them all a good go!

Holy crap that Sylvari piece is amazing. I feet very drawn in by it. I doubt I would even think twice about commissioning you. :3 Love the Asura sketch too.

Hello again! i have been completely unproductive for an embarassing amount of time thanks to GW2 releasing so i decided to design a wallpaper hoping it would make me feel less lazy. This features all 9 of my characters, Solara, Gumboots, Keahi, Solana, Eilia, Kyden, Kaliara, Salani and Karisse. Altaholic i know .-.

The brushes and background rock things are part of the GW2 asset kit, the rest is screenshots and digital paint.
