Hey all,

Elven women. Can't do it. Every attempt to make an attractive and fierce Elven goddess has come out terribly. They end up having a strangely round and pudgy face (unless you're into that sort of thing) or look extremely man-ish from the nose down.

If you're feeling sassy, post your Elven women and show me how it's done. A few tips would be nice too.

It's not perfect - the mouth is the bane of my CC existence - but here is my Lavellan:

Get some other elven faces for reference, try not to fight the Lore's depiction of the facial structure too much, or it will look jarring when you see and interact with other elves. That's not to say elves can't have busted noses or have fierce heihachi eyebrows, more a matter of skull shape and underconstruction. I find certain jaws harder to pull off with an elf, but that's my opinion.

For a fierce look, consider the more elaborate facepaints instead of what I used.
And beware the Disney elf ears. You will know when you see them...

Truthfully, I was going for a Clarke from The 100 look. Blonde, strong features. Maybe that's better on a human.

They all look the same but minor changes each time. I spent hours trying to get it right but I am never happy. I spent 15 minutes making my Male human.

I'm quite happy with her looks:
