Now my original idea was going to have Xyphos in a very green area and make her look like she was frolicking nude like a typical elf, and hope for a nice clear day to do it. The whole new life, and pretty flowers part of spring…
However I live in the UK…
British summer time officially started today, and guess what? Rain, and lots of it of course! Also since Britain is famous for the rain we get in spring
especially since some people believe it always rains here. We call the rain April showers commonly for a reason though. The weather is not due to clear up either, so I though well the rain we get in spring, is a part of spring in the UK. So I thought, well I will use that instead.
I thought well maybe pose her to make her looking like she wants to frolic, but is not willing to do so in bad weather. So she is hoping that the rain will stop so she can go frolicking. Since she can be a fair-weather frolicker, since that would suit her character more. Since she is a city elf, from the Dragon Age setting.
Also bare in mind my doll had an umbrella which protected her from the rain, I didn't! I got soaked! priorities right? Lol. Actually I don’t think I could hold an umbrella and use a camera. So I got soaked in the name of art! However people on Tumblr have seemed to quite like the picture so that is really nice.
I am a traditional artist and lives just outside Manchester in the UK. As far as work done in the art industry, I do not have much experience but has a T-shirt and program design for a Manchester gaming convention known as "Game Con". I would love more experience and would enjoy computer game concept design, gaming/war-game/miniature figure concept design, card and book illustration or anything along that vein. I don't have any art school experience and is self taught using books, online guides and feedback of others to improve.|
Although I do very much enjoy the social aspect of DA and love making friends. I am very thankful to everyone on here who has helped me grow, I could not have done it without you. I am always looking for ways to improve & is happy to receive any advise or critique. My main focus being fantasy art being influenced by anime. I also collect BJDs and very much enjoy the photography aspect of them.
A lot of my BJD work can be found on Tumblr -> karla-chans-bjds.tumblr.com/
