A little blast from the Renaissance comes to you today, showing the Elven mage, Ariolas Maharasen. Ri, as we affectionately know him, is a rather unseelie type, but still, he was and is a sword-bearer, his goddess Mahara's husband, once--well, long story. He's an Ancient, and one of the last full-blooded Elves on earth today. Founder of the Sophic and Hermetic schools of magick...Ri was frequently mistaken for Mercury, back in the day. The old boy is wily, puckish in his humor, and unpredictable--but very wise, and a fearfully strong magus.
And, for those of you who follow my figments, he's Ian Stewart's grandfather. And a dear friend of the Gotth clan. Ri is fond of drinking lots of Alex's wine cellar and keeping Alex's grandmother, Dolores, both amused and warm at night. ;)
He ain't too hard on the eyes, neither. :D Sorry he's wearing so many clothes, but damn, winter in Saxony was COLD.
Production notes: M4 with my own character, but wearing one of the Jepe textures for F4, with EZskin2 applied and probably Sabby eyes. Xurges' Renaissance tunic, my jewelry. DM set, with a bit of Kelly Lodge (DAZ) thrown in for props. Jim Farris' poseable tome open on the table (ShareCG). Hair, magic, and mood added in post. Yes, there is a half-eaten apple on the table, as well as an open bottle of wine. This Elf has a hollow leg.

Ri is freakin' awesome, and I love this. The subtle effects are perfectly rendered out- it's so good to see more of your work, doll! And Mik sends his regards. Grin

Oh, with clothes, without clothes, barely dressed, Ri looks good anytime!! That hair just begs for fingers to be run through it! And I DO love his outfit and the lighting in this piece. MMMM...nothing better than a handsome elf!!

I remember him from other renders and he's one of your...meatier fellows? With clothes, without clothes, -I- know what he looks like topless, so cover him in a burlap sack, he'll still be a looker. With all the names mentioned, I find myself rushing back, trying to figure out who they are. WHO IS DOLORES?! I MUST GO FIND THIS DOLORES. ~~)o) And ditto what Erestorfan said about elves. <3

I just want to add a squee post here--he's just so pretty, and the FX are icing on the beefcake.

Lovely! I always enjoy your images and the backstory. The lighting and FX are incredible! My favorite part is definitely his hair!
