Sylvari by LiviaZita Sylvari by LiviaZita
My drawing of my male Sylvari Elementalist in the game Guild Wars 2.


Here he is with an animated glow! Let you computer load the gif, it's a bit big :)

He looks really cool. Sylvari are probably my favourite race in GW 2.

Wow, he is amazing! I love the Sylvari. I always put my mes in town clothes when I can so everyone can see her glowy bits ;-) Fantastic picture.

Yes, I wish the Sylvari's natural glowy bits would show through a lot more when they have armor on. I love seeing it pulse and light up, but I don't get to see nearly as much as I'd like. :)

Thank you! :3
I had a human carried over from GW1 who was already a necromancer, so I chose the next best thing that fit his looks :)

Makes me wonder how you did it haha.
It just looks like he just walked out of the game ... maybe even better :3

The shading is brilliant! :3

Whee thank you :happydance:

I took a screenshot of my Sylvari, then used it as a reference for the drawing.
It was drawn in Photoshop CS5, with my trusty Intuos 4 tablet :3
I did the base sketch on my iPad actually, with the Sketch Club app. Then I transferred it to my PC and did the majority of the work in PS :)

His face gives him more of a necromancer like appearance. Eh...maybe that's too obvious. XD I like it with the elementalist, too.

I'm partial to the mohawk and red, but I think it's still the best face.

I love this (and the original). I know you created him as a Elementalist, but like someone below mentioned he does look very Nightmare court. I think this character design would lend itself really well to a Necromancer... he's very cool, and you did an incredible rendition.

LiviaZita Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you for the nice words! ^_^
Yes, the intention was for him to look like some sort of high ranking member of the Nightmare Court :)
The only reason why he is not a Necromancer is that my other main is a Human Necro, carried over from GW1. She was the first ever character I created in GW1, and she was my one and only main.

I didn't want to play through the game twice with the same profession, so he became an Elementalist, my second most-wanted-to-play profession :)

I have some great image designs in mind for him, demonstrating just how dark being an Elementalist can look :happybounce:

Did you play the last Beta Weekend Event? You could turn the light on and off at the character creation screen :3

Wait wat.

I played it, and that's how I created my sylvari, and I DID notice that...but...

I think what happened is I played with that setting with a sylvari who had no markings...

I didn't realize it would show the sylvari's cool glowing markings...I should have tried it on mine...

You can't.
Anet said that while you can have some "darker traits", your character is meant to be a hero.
For example, the way how you interact/speak with NPCs, you can be all noble, charismatic or even a plain a$$h*le. This will evolve with time and depending on how much interactions you do through out the world. You can be even be barbaric. But in the end, you will still fight the dragons and protect Tyria.

You can't join the Sons of Svanir, Nightmare Court, Inquest, etc. What can happen is that you might join them up in some DE but more with the intent of spying on their doings than actually be one of them.

But at least he will be able to wear Nightmare armor, which by the way looks totally killer on him :squee:
