Certainly an unusual portrait. Very unique and sneaky looking facial expression that screams "Hey, let me help you handle some of those corp assets for you... No, I don't know who emptied out the corp wallet". Background is also fitting.

*Insert snarky comment about brooding Sith lords*

Ammarians are really good for that.

That being said, it really looks like you were going for that evil, brooding, "I'll force choke your goldfish" look.

TBH at first I kind of thought "no", but this is a nice portrait really... the glasses just miss being right... however its the strength of the portrait perhaps... I think you stole them, like you always do... we never see you in the same glasses... even if you are gone for like five minutes, you come back with different glasses... WTH!... this is like a whole set of stories I want to hear.

This one was fun... 10/10

Good portrait certainly shows the Amarr culture, you do look like a Rolex dealer which is pretty cool, 9/10 would like discount on watches

Solid portrait, not only do I like the way it's a side portrait, it also works well against the red and black background, especially because of your light grey hair. The glasses fit and while I'm usually not a big fan of piercings, the small one you have in the nose there looks good in this case.

I'll give it an 8.5/10

Quietly nice... good use of background in framing, as well as keeping a festive look about it, the very clean martial presentation is much softened by a puckish enigmatic smile. The shadowed glance is inviting, but makes no promise of a response amusing to any but yourself.

Monocle. 0/10.

Would worship as god-emperor, however. 10/10 for divinity.

Far too pretty to be Amarr, also a complete lack of gravitas, and po faced humility. The person above looks like they might be having fun, which would be completely banned if I ever became emperor.

3/10. Send in the inquisition to ensure that they look properly miserable next time.

The voices in my head told me to post this. Mind you they also tell me to buy chocolate, so it can't all be bad.

The look on your face suggests someone spat at your feet and insulted you, leaving you in shock. That someone could've been me, but I don't see a knife in your neck. And if you ever became emperror, the only time I'd ever bow before you would be over your corpse, collecting a trophy. 7/10

From the ashes of our defeat, we will be reborn. With these chains with which we are bound, we will become indivisible. To those who showed us no mercy, we will give no sympathy. For the flames that burn our cities, we will douse in injustice's blood

Fal is a badass but her framing's quite poor. 6/10

Standard issue blue-haired Gallente fuckboy. Earplugs, blue hair, nose+ear rings, no chest hair. Thinks leather vests are edgy. -1/10 would not glory the State with.

Strong and aggressive looking. You know this chick gets out of her pod and whoops ass when she does so.
(At least I think you're female.)

The side-profile and focus on the scar helps add serious character. My only gripe is that the hair seems "off". I'm not a fan of the style, BUT it still compliments the character scheme, so that's just me being nitpicky.

Huh. Not sure where to start with this one. There's... a lot going on, and I'm not sure it's all good.

First of all, the framing. The (very very poor) framing means it's difficult to get a feel for your character, even in the blown-up view. Bring that in closer, far closer, and use an angle that isn't from a meter up. If you want to show off your shirt, there's ways to do that without that wreck of an angle.

Color composition is lacking. Again, I get your desire to show off that shirt (hey, I forgot to get mine), but at least make an effort to pair your skin, arms, and hair together. That background doesn't help. I've used it and I've seen it used very well, but as a way to add dynamic color to an otherwise monochromatic portrait. It doesn't work in your already busy one.

I'd like to make comments on your body position, expresstion, etc, but honestly, the framing's bad enough that I don't feel I should try to pass judgement.

2/10, definitely one of the worse ones on here. Could become something nice, I'm not sure. Try taking inspiration from the more highly-rated avatars here and try again. I'll be here to give advice, though! Don't think I'm being harsh for no reason :)

I'd like to say something brutally honest to match the direction you've taken the thread in, but I simply cannot find fault. The framing is excellent, the lighting and background match very well, and the character is very interesting. Neph is beautiful. The facial tattoo and burn scar make her look battle-hardened and suggest many stories. The natural expression further emphasizes this. Seriously impressive. 10/10

I have nothing bad to say about Shahira herself: she's a classic Khanid beauty and a pleasure to look at. But the portrait (imo) puts too much focus on her neck and cleavage, so the very top of her hair is cut off. Also, there's some weird shadows in that cleavage, as if her clothes are a photoshop layer on a paper doll.

So, 10/10 for the looks, 8/10 for the portrait, 9/10 total.

Your avatar could be much improved with a few changes to framing and lighting.

Note that most good portraits don't put the eyes in the center of the frame. Move the character up a bit - yes, that could mean showing a bit of neckline, and yes, it might cut off the top part of the hair. In return, you'll get to show more of the jacket and bring out your colour composition, which is pretty good.

The current lighting is very bland; the portrait will look much better if you change the lighting to something more defining. Good lighting makes all the difference between that golden pale skin, and looking sickly. It'll also let you highlight those shiny bits on the collar and the reflective material of the jacket. There are a few options that will still let you have interesting shadows; try them out.
