Do you like your portrait? (What "look" were you going for?)

I went for the "class yearbook photo" look in mine.

Why did you do yours the way you did?

I wanted to look like a cross between Ming The Merciless and Freddie Mercury...

Trust me, I almost know what I'm doing.

Tried to stay true to my old avatar's look.

But the lack of hairstyles and revealing outfits (like the gallente avatars of old) made me a sad panda.

Resorted to a hooker look, then added some outfits when the Nex store came along.

Eve is about Capital ships, WiS, Boobs, PI and Isk!

Well, of course. I usually don't have anything else but a hint of what i do intend to achieve. Make up is carefully thought out and so I usually end up with exactly what I was looking for, but poses are born out of improvisation and a certain concept.

For this portrait, I aimed at a picture with conflicting directionality, the body going to the left, the head to the right. Then I tinkered with the mouth and figured a good "huh, who's there?" impression and fine tuned it for two versions, then rated the avatar and fine tuned it for a the third and fourth versions. The fourth is final and is the one you can see now.

Also count on four unsaved approaches before and inbetween versions, and all in all i likely put some 5 hours into this portrait.

And in some weeks, I will grow bored of it, or will have a "huh, i should try this" idea and will start all over again. Cool


The sad being, this portrait and Ishtanchuk's are all the fun I have had with EVE for the last 2 months... Ugh

not an good thread to begin such .. but anyway why ? because you think its not necessary, yet necessity is something subjectively created by your own "knowledge" or lack thereof. Fact is it does not matter, well nothing matters but that is another story.

I think Tip was talking about the NeX store being crappy.

Calm, Optimistic, Unassuming, Bright Eyed and a bit Cute.

All the traits you would not expect in a Serial Killer. Plan Successful.

If you will excuse me I just got a Courier Mission to Escort a Load of Tourists.

I have a feeling I will fail it.
