Why poor? I think it's more then ok :3

Of course, I would much rather enjoy seeing you in a theatrical death outfit. But that's just me.

Skin tight black fabric from neck to toe, then over that, something like a military rain cloak with ripped bits going out everywhere, 3 quarter baggy loose pants with more ripped strips, a deep hood. And white and black paint on the face... 0_o I miss putting on plays.

Sounds interesting. If I had more of a budget I wouldn't mind doing something like that.

We did something like that in high school, we made the outfit from scraps, it was cheap. We bought some clothes from an 2 nd hand store and cut and stitched them, we already had the face paint, win! The thing turned out so well and his entrance was so well choreographed that even do "death" was a secondary character, every one loved him the most.

Not even a paint ball gun, cheap plastic toy gun. You can't really wander around conventions with an actual AK-47 replica.

What do you mean not have interest in it? From what I've heard it was almost as popular as Skyrim.

Just everyone in the comments are like "I don't really have any interest in this game, but I love this!" I didn't read ALL the comments but from the ones I've seem they were like that.

Heh, well, you are dealing with artists. Gaming takes a lot of time, time that people, who are really passionate about art, rather use for developing their skill. Besides, I don't think shooters are the best games for artists.

Hmmm... You got a point there. There are a few exceptions for shooters though.

In my opinion, Far Cry games were quite revolutionary. Each of them showed a breakthrough in either graphics or environment dynamics. They are amazing study cases. That being said, the story sucks. And I'm not big on shooters.

Thanks ^^

Frankly, I wouldn't pick this one for the DD either. I was really hoping one of the AC series would get picked. In my opinion, they are far better.

sweet u are so opened up for critique. so rare in the world.
dds are quite mysterious often. and talking to the mods that chose wont enlighten things. they are often too young  for the "job" and blind. at least the ones i had contact to.
have a good one bud.

I am open for critique if it's well placed. And while the Vaas series isn't my best I do believe the expression on this one does have a reason behind it. Vaas may be a psychopath, but he is not stupid. In this shot I imagined him as focused, waiting for his target to make the first move. Check out the rest of the series, you might like it.

it will become quite a chat if i respond open to all what u write :) as english isnt my main language, it will become too difficult to express what i mean in good words.
vaas is a psycho, u should have made that more visible in ur expression and body language. as an example: trying to give him some "eyebrow up", some devilish smirk, etc. that character gives a very wide variety that u can play with. i like the fifth pic, though the weight transfer seems to make it look too "relaxed". like.. he sits there for a while already and shoots. not spontanious, not fast and about to move again. i guess u rested there a while to get a good pic, so u transfered the weight to make it more relaxed.

i think, judging by ur pics (and dont feel too touched please), that u are a sensible and peaceful person, inwards and more kinda melancholic/thinking, but also with a "dark side" which u dont let out enough when its needed (for the pics). not that i would be an actor or cosplayer, just u should try to get rid of this in most, feeling more into the role, expressing more explosive power, daring more, getting more out of urself and having this caught on camera. like in that actoin series partially. as a ballet dancer that u seem to be, it might be tough for u to not make all look smooth and elegant, so id surely suggest u to try some martials arts (well id surely suggest all artists that have to do with action poses, also painters and sculptors). u are very fit and very agile, it will be easier for u than for others.

no im no psychologist :) and of course i can be wrong with my interpretations, its just what i see in the pics. and please dont think im arrogant or a smartass. just being open and honest, trying to express (in too long words :D ) what i think. and yes, too much time cause noone is on skype ;)

Hey I've never played the game and don't really have an active interest in it, but I've seen enough Gameinformer screenshots to know who you were cosplaying. If I recognized it, I know the fans definitely will.
