Sylphie - benevolent drow priestess

Sylphie - benevolent drow priestess

This is a commission work, based on the 'Seoni' figure from the Crocodile Games 'Pathfinder' fantasy series.

This figure was painted to represent a character, Sylphie, who is a member of a D&D gaming party. Sylphie is a benevolent drow priestess. There were 2 main stipulations made by the client: first, the dark drow skin needed to be grey-brown, rather than dark purple, and second, she needed white robes to represent her purity and good spirit. Blue was also suggested to accompany the white, but apart from that, I was pretty free with the colours.

Rather than a true, primary blue, I decided to use slightly more off-key colours, to give the scheme a little more complexity. The green-blue and purple-ish colours give the character a bit more nuance, I think, and to me they hint at her drow heritage more effectively than a standard, true blue colouring might.

Hope you like her

really nice as always! Yet to me there's something wrong with the eyes. At such small scales, you have to paint them sliiiightly eyecrossed-like. it gives a much more natural look. cant remember who taught me that though. The rest of it is flawless just again. Take much care seb

Perfect choice of colours. Very, very beautiful. I also do like the sculpt. Your painting is a good advertisement for Crocodile Games. I guess I need to buy the sculpt after I have seen your great paintjob on it
