Guardian

Guardian

I was chosen from a young age and set on the patch of a warrior. Some become healers, others priests, but, I, I am a guardian. One of only twenty chosen from among our vast people.

Guardians are always watching, waiting, always vigilant. Tasked with protecting our most sacred place – the temple our ancestors built to the gods.

And so I will remain, until I am relieved of my duties due to age or death. This is my calling. This is my life.

Dusk Falling

Another hour, perhaps less, she mused, her gaze falling to the town below as the sun began to sink below the horizon.

Dusk (2)

It had been her evening routine for over a century now, watching the sun set and counting down the minutes until she went out to feed.The freedom to meld into the shadows of darkness as she searched for food, with no crowds, no witnesses, and best of all no sunlight hurting her sensitive eyes. There would be the drunks stumbling out of the local bar, the stragglers walking home alone at night. No kills of course, for it would be too dangerous to leave a body. A taste here, a taste there. Taking only enough to wet her appetite before moving on to another. And when daylight returned and the humans awoke, none would be the wiser. They would continue on with their lives, simply thinking her a strange and wealthy recluse.

Dusk (1)

Just a bit longer, she told herself.

(MOAR FANTASY PICTURES! And bc I just learned that Fantasy Gatcha Carnival is open now, you’ll be overrun with my fantasy posts. Sorry for that in advance.)

Anyone who has played or is familiar with FFXIV will understand the title of my post. As your character moves through the storyline you come to learn that you are chosen and blessed by the Crystal i.e Mother Hydalelyn. I’ve been flopping back and forth between SL and FF a lot so a crossover post between my two “MMO worlds” seemed appropriate and the awesome crystal poses from We ❤ RP was the perfect element to tie the two together. (Yeah okay I’m a huge nerd lol.)

Protecting the Kingdom

Protecting the Kingdom I love fantasy RP stuff and the large RP community of Second Life was one of the aspects that drew me here. While I spend a lot of my time in SL on a human avatar, it’s not uncommon to see me running around with elf ears or fangs since vampire and elf are my favorite races to be. Protecting the Kingdom (2)

Been playing Skyrim and Final Fantasy, and now after shopping this month’s We ❤ RP, it’s safe to say I’ll be elfing it out for awhile. Also….let me just say how excited I am that I found fantasy type armor than isn’t a breast plate and a thong! I feel like this set is the right combination of sexy and practical. I am all for being skimpy when it calls for it, but in terms of armor I prefer to be at least semi-realistic lol.

The breeze whispers to me, as if from a dream…

Snapshot_007My strating point. I took this picture about 50 different times, changing the lighting, the angle and resolution but was having so many issues with Depth of Field. Everytime I turned it on, the edges of my hair went all pixelated and fuzzy for some reason. I did my best trying to smooth it out in PS and mask over the goofy edges but it just wasn’t looking right. I got the fabulous suggestion from a PS help group to create my own DoF in photoshop, off I went on an editing frenzy. Turning off DoF made a world of difference and I took picture 1 with hair and picture 2 without (for masking purposes).

After applying lens blur filter on the bottom layer, masking the blur back in with a gradient and of course the masking the arm back in from behind the hair. I also filled in the hair using hair brushes and drawing in strands with the freeform pen tool since some of the “wisps” were lost in the blur. I’m very happy with the end result and it was much less trying to edit than my original. A breeze, a wisp, a dream..-Kaiden –
