Elves are among the oldest spacefaring race in all of the five galaxies and one of the oldest races in existence, They come in 4 varieties Floranesti or Forest elves, Luminesti or Light elves, Dakkonesti or Dark Elves, and Celesti Celestial Elves. All are immortal in that they cannot die from the passage of time but they are quite vulnerable to injury and disease as any other mortal life form. Each type of elf has their own way of doing things though all excel in the use of magic. Luminesti are very often found in the company of Solarans and have also been known to mate with them. Luminesti are lovers of nature though less so than other elves except Dakkonesti. Dakkonesti elves have skin as black as pitch and have a strong aversion to light they are thought to be evil though they are no more so than other species. They too are often found in the company of Solarans who find them exotic and sensual. Floranesti are more primitive and any technology they do possess is strictly magical or organic and often both. They rarely associate with non-Elves though once their trust is earned they are loyal forever. Celesti elves are what people usually think of when one hears the name Elf, their worlds are covered with lush forests and towering crystal cities they excel in art and music and all other forms art including the arts martial ie warfare. They are fearsome warriors and like all elves are quite proficient in the use of the blade and the bow though mostly as a matter of tradition. They possess technology, magic, and organic technologies that are above most in the five galaxies. They only associate with "Important Soloarans and leaders or emissaries from other worlds and while they have been known to mate with other species, doing so is cause for banishment and shunning and the offender never be accepted into their society again. They tend to look down on the lesser races but would never abandon them entirely it is not uncommon for Solarans to lose their temper and get into a fist fight with a Celesti elf as Solarans view their type of Egotistical behavior as repulsive.

After a great critique by Pijon I decided to re-shoot this image with DOF on the camera and some much needed Sci-Fi updating.  Thanks for the help bro never avoid a critique because you think it might bruise my ego...I don't have one.

 Re: Luminesti Elf
First of all, thanks for the comment. Second, did nobody notice the giant skyscraper in the far back? The town was supposed to give a feeling of history and ancientness to the character and for the most part it did. The concept was to make the viewer feel as though the elves have ancient ties and come from a time long forgotten ...or some such. In any case I won't be going back for another shoot (not that anyone was suggesting it) this work for me is complete. Incidentally, the concept of ancient existing side by side with High Tech IS a recurring theme in the game I'm developing.

There's a good sense of consistency and a real sense of her walking on solid ground now. Well done, O!

 Re: Luminesti Elf
while i love the character design as well as the Elf history. she looks out of place in this fantasy village with all the high-tech arsenal. is she a time traveler?

 Re: Luminesti Elf
Thanks for the critique bro, this piece was admittedly a bit rushed, I wanted a DOF but it a bit of an afterthought and what I should probably do is go back and re-shoot it. I tried to do it in post but it obviously wasn't that great. Ah well the scene was really less about the background and more about the character. I may re-shoot this one after all.

 Re: Luminesti Elf
Here's another of my crits so be warned. Believe you do plenty of stuff I wish I could do half that well but you're too good not to work toward great so...
Great looking character! Reminds me of an Elven Annie Lennox warrior. She looks terrific in terms of, pose features, expression and outfit. I also like the way you've used the cobblestone to lead the eyes back to the village... and a lovely village it is, albeit a blurry one. Still, I think if you cropped off a little more of the sides, it would strengthen the composition. For the most part, the blur works to create a nice separation although when the pristine crispness of her focus meets the road, that crisp boot on a blurry road looks pasted in. You might try a little experimenting in PS... like putting a non-blurred layer beneath the blurred and using an eraser with big soft brush and some reduced opacity on the blurred layer to bring back some of that focus. Your masking got a little sloppy around the shoulders too. Also her hair and right shoulder pad lack the crispness of nearby detail making them look post worked in. Still, strong character and a really cool character and plenty of stuff working very well. Good job.
