Since I started Daylily about a year ago, I've discovered that elven barbarians are one of those race/class combinations that no one ever frickin' plays. At least, if the amount of elven barbarian artwork out there is any clue, no one one ever plays them. It's a desert. Seriously.

However, I've recently found two pretty reasonable elf barbarian pictures, and I figured I'd put it up for a vote. But just for giggles, I'll even throw in the original picture, which I hate.

So then, Living Pathfinderites: Who is Daylily? Who should Daylily be?



Choice #1: The badly photoshopped human elf barbarian.







Choice #2: Half-naked steroid barbarian.





Choice #3: The Cloud Strife elf barbarian.

I vote for the Half Naked Barbarian. Whenever I think Barbarian in a rage, that Demented, almost Joker like smile, is what I picture. Having that jumping at you would make you dive for the nearest half-solid object to try to give him something else to smash so you can try to escape.

I was really disappointed when you initially shifted from the original to #2. Yes, the original is pretty terrible. But it's lodged itself into my consciousness to the point where it's lovable in its terribleness.

That being said, I cast my vote for #3. I feel like that could *actually* be Daylily, based on what I know of his character, whereas #2 is too cartoon-y for me. The profusion of skins/claws/etc is a nice touch.

On an empathetic note, I've had the same problem with Ni, my summoner gnome. Gnome pictures are hard to find in and of themselves; I really dislike his current picture, but it's still the closest I've gotten to satisfactory.

#1 looks like he is having an aneurysm. Or taking a dump in a briar patch. And he needs a dentist but then I imagine most people of the time would.

#2 is a bit cartoony. But I'm attracted to vibrant colors so this one got my vote.

#3 would be fine but since I am attracted to vibrant colors this one seems too monochrome for me. And it has Cloud's head. I am not a fan of Cloud art so if it had a different head and a bit of color I definitely would have voted for this one instead. Even though he stole Amiri's clothes.

There are a couple of good images if you do a search for 'wild elf'. I threw this one together for you:[sblock=BraveElf][/sblock]

Touché, GE.


EDIT: Holy crap, he totally stole Amiri's clothes.

While I tend to picture Daylily with more clothing a-la the ripped-from-the-iconic accoutrements of the third pic, I agree with others that the wild insanity in the look of the second pic just says "Daylily" to me more, so, it got my vote.

Too human?

Not dissimilar from how I'd imagine Daylily:

One with a hammer:

Any of these work for you? Check pg 2 as well, might be something there if not :)

Thanks much, jbear! I did find several of those larger pictures a while ago, and none of them seemed both filthy and crazed enough to be Daylily.

However, I really, really like that website that all the smaller pictures came from, although I wish the pictures were a little bigger. None of their pictures exactly screams Daylily to me, but there are a few that I'll be using for future NPCs and PCs for sure.

Cool. I though size might be an issue. But yeah, the website is pretty sweet (except for the size).

If there was a image that you like but didn't have the elven ears you are looking for I could possibly tamper with the image on Photoshop and give the ears the touch you are looking for so the image screams both elf and filthy barbarian.
 
In general if you're looking for badass elves, I'd do a search for Dark Sun Elf or Athasian Elf. It might not say "barbarian" on the tin, but nomadic barbaric desert elf Rangers and Fighters are going to suffice for quite a few nonstandard badasses, whether Barbarian-appropriate, or otherwise.

I think between the three pics the correct decision was made though. :)
