Der Erlkoenig

By SickleYield
My sister made me read a translation of the titular poem by Goethe. Then, while I was still sitting stunned by the imagery, she asked me for a render of an elf on a motorcycle. So here is an urban Elf King, just for Fuse.

I apologize to any German readers for not having an umlaut over the o, but Deviantart doesn't allow them in titles. (EDIT: FIXED! Thanks to syntheticpain!)

Fairly extensive credits:

From DAZ3D:
Michael 4 and Morphs++
Leon de Castiglia (boots)
M4 Enhanced++ (earrings)
V4 Sorceress (diadem)

From Renderosity:
Dione Hair
Dead End alley props
V4 Pureskin (used DAZ 3.0's UV swap feature)

Free From ShareCG:
Honda CBR by Dalmatiner
A4 Kimber (eyes) by winteryvonne200
Super Shine Shaders by Marianne (on practically everything, but especially the motorcycle, jewelry and harness)

Free elsewhere:

Cool Tuna Studios M4 Jewelry (nip shield)
PoserAddicts M4 Free Harness++
Faerie Dreams Earring Set (ear stud)
Diadem texture by Chohole

Work by me:

Brothers Light and Dark (for sale at PoserAddicts) (sword)
Sickle Skinny Jeans and Texture Pack 1 (for sale at PoserAddicts and Renderosity)(pants)
New ref map for shine shaders, shader tweaking
(mostly to make them look more metallic)
Custom Lighting in DAZ Studio
Pose for M4
Extra shading on eyes, lips, cheeks for skin texture
Velvet coat mesh and texture (an obj prop from an unreleased conforming item)
Dialed morph for M4
Minimal postwork (sword flames, fixed hair clipping through ear)

Rendered in DAZ Studio 3.0 Advanced. I didn't use any of the Advanced features, though.

beautiful work! you can replace "ö" with "oe" in German, when you write der Erlkoenig, it's still right ;)
