    Oh Rick mate, it is very wonderful of you to join in this event, thank you!

    And you have brought us a dual-treat in that you have also used it as an introduction for your very lovely Cerica. He is most stunning in a very genteel sort of way.

    I have to echo the truth of what Heike has already said, elegance is not necessarily about clothes or backgrounds and such like...it can be a look, a pose or, as you have done, the elegance of silverware on an old oak table...elegance is as elegance does, and my favourite images in this set are the two shots of her standing gracefully at the foot of the stairs, and the shot of her sitting on the floor, her mind apparently lost deep in her thoughts.

    Beautifully done, beautifully and elegantly presented!

    Thanks again!

    First, I have go say, that I'm so glad, that you take part on this open event of the exclusive theme of elegance on Sunday. Your introducion of Cerica is indeed very fitting. I
    ove the dark mysterious elegance of her when she goes through her home, down the stairs ...
    It seems to me, we had really the same intention for today ... but, honestly, I don't wonder about this

      I've seen contributions to this new event sparked by our friend Les and I've felt I don't have enough dresses to keep up with Elegance on Sunday. Most of my characters wear other kind of outfits when I play the game and there's not nearly as many dresses as there are armors/other attirements to be found.

      That being said, I'm very glad I did join in with Cerica. It's her first appearance in Skyrim and she might return shortly on Wednesday for a different kind of showcase, more close to what she wears in gameplay and her story...

      It also truly seems we had a very similar idea for this Sunday, but what's that saying - dark minds think alike!

      I think, elegance is not connected with nice dresses and women ... maybe it's our first intention ... than we drift to the dark side and than we see ... there is much more ... I will try this, but I'm not sure, if I will find the right pics for my intention of elegance .... sometimes it's the whisper of the cold wind in the top of the trees ...

    Wow this set is great my friend. It has elegance in spades. It is a fantastic entry into this wonderful event.


    I do hope you do another one.

      It's all in the lady I suppose (in this case at least) if the set is going to be elegant or not. Elegance to me when it comes to females is greatly connected with dresses for some reason, but I suspect I will run out of them before I run out of women...

      I'll try to follow up with some more Elegance on Sunday sets, because this was fun to do, although I have to admit I have a far more easy time making a Colourful Sunday since I travel around so much. More will surely come though, but perhaps not every week.

      Thank you kindly, Quinten!

    Now that is elegant, she seems to have a bit of a royal touch to her as well and oozes confidence

      Thank you kindly, Corfus!

      I'm glad you say confidence, because she's a rather cocky and sassy girl when in "her right clothes". She's not the kind of girl who wears dresses, so this was a one time opportunity with Cerica...

      I'm sure I'll upload another set with her anytime soon...when she has picked something from her ordinary wardrobe...

      Thank you, Erwin!

      Yes, I like how she looks too. It's always fun to see your imagination take visual form when making characters. Since I have written description of them all, I do have some leads to go by which is why I never use other presets than the ones in Vanilla - not even the ones I've done myself. It adds to their uniqueness I think, since they wont look too similar to the creations already been made.

      I'm much more confident with making SW sets though, but that's mainly because I have more to pick from when it comes to outfits. I did a SW set with this girl at the same time as I did this set actually!

      Thank you very much, Izzy!

      She has a certain elegance about her looks, I have to say. She doesn't run around in dresses too often though, even if she's a sorceress - but a roguish one...

    I knew you could come up with something perfect for the day :) She is lovely and like the silver tones as silver is always very elegant.

      I do have the ladies, but I'm not sure there are dresses enough!

      Well, I had to try make something at least and this character was "born" into Skyrim just today, so what better than to introduce her with some elegance. It's not her normal style though, but that's part of the fun - dressing the characters up to be something else. Sometimes it even sparks new ideas for their future to come...or their background stories.

      Silver is indeed elegant and it goes perfectly with black fabrics too...

      Truly thank you, Lidi, for taking the time to greet her!

      My latest addition to my increasing squad of characters (more a legion by now), so I made her just today...
