Reference Shots

I took some reference screenshots of the characters that I'm using in my story. I thought they might be somewhat interesting, LOL.

This is my Elven Hunter, her hair falling out of the ponytail, with two overwhelmingly handsome men.



And this is her with her Orc, preparing themselves for a hunt.



I'm really glad I did these shots because I really had no idea exactly how much bigger than her he is.

She has the same hairstyle as my hunter. It's just practical, you know.

It is, and she's a practical girl. I've got the hairclips she wears as metal, but I can't figure out how to describe her ponytail holder. Any ideas?

The dynamics of the group she grew up in are a lot like Hermione, Ron, and Harry--if Harry and Ron were stunningly gorgeous.

I'm probably way off, since I don't know who these characters are or the universe in which they live, but just from looking at the pictures, it occurred to me that she would use a string of rawhide to secure her ponytail. In the bottom picture, it looks like they are wearing clothing and shoes made from some kind of skins, and she's a hunter, right? I used to know a Native American girl whose family were hunters, and she used lengths of rawhide string with beads to secure her ponytails and braids. Maybe your character uses string made from the hide of whatever animals she hunts, dyed different colors or decorated with beads if she's the 'girlie hunter' type. Just an idea. :)

Actually, that is spot on, and I'm glad that came through in the pictures. In the game, she is a skinner and leatherworker. She made their gear herself, and that is a big part of her character.

PS: Who are your DOTA toons? I saw a ton of people online in the guild yesterday but felt silly if any of them were you. Mine are Susania and Brydget. (Not Bryg, which is someone else, LOL.)

My DotA characters are Alderman, Blondin, and Vivean (all worgen) as well as Talaena (draenai). I may add more if I start playing them more. So far I've been playing Vivean the most, but I had originally meant Alderman to be my main on that server. It's really hard to solo a priest, though, and my brother isn't on at the same time I am very often. I showed him my new guild, though, and he's jealous. Maybe there should be some kind of 'friends of DotA' guild that includes guys who are approved/vouched for by the girls, so that they can be included in a reasonable, polite gulid.

There is a chat channel called 'friendsofdota' or something close to that. There is also a guild that accepts male and female players called 'cake or death.' The GM is the husband of DotA's GM, and they do events/raids together

Solo'ing with a priest is really difficult. Once mine hit 15, I almost totally leveled her by healing dungeons. (That said, she's only level 20 now, so it's hard to say how successful a method that is. I love the name Talaena.

I'll have to tell my brother about that guild, thanks.

Ooh, I don't know if I can handle the responsibility of being a healer. I should try it, though. :D

Oh good, the pics help my imagination. Since I don't play WoW, my only visual reference point for your characters was Lord of the Rings.
