This is my Norn Elementalist, Natensida. This is my first submission to this site also.

I know there's some clipping issues with the boots and part of the leggings, and I'm usually pretty fickle with that, but there's no other boots that I think would work with this combination. Overall I'm happy with her look.

First of all: welcome to GW2 style! ^^
For a first upload this is already quite good! I definitely dig your armour mix, the T3 top looks stunning here and your dyes are simple yet elegant
It´s a cool classic Norn theme that doesn´t feel too overused
What you could still improve on is your overall presentation, meaning a few more screens and a more detailed description
Still a very cool upload though, looking forward to your next looks ^^

Welcome! :D
I think your armor combo works well, even with the slight clipping in the boots, which I probably wouldn't even have noticed if you didn't mention it in the description. :)
you have a bit too high contrast in your dyes to my personal liking. I would probably change the celestial and shadow dyes to something a little less extreme. These dyes also tend to burn some of the texture detail and I therefore usually recommend to be very cautious about using them.
Your screenshots seem to have been cropped to get the effect of a closeup. And even though you have some very nice poses and camera angles, the fact that your character is dead center in all of them, i find them to fall a bit short.
Instead i would recommend you try to play with the cameras FoV and Positioning settings ingame, to get closer and to offset your character a bit to either side. and keep your screenshots as high resolution as possible.
this should allow for higher quality and even more artistic stunning screenshots. ^^
Also for your last screenshot showing all 4 sides of your look. Try to do those in the character select screen, as this allows for higher resolutions.
I hope some of this can help you in the future :)

Thanks for the comments :)
I will definitely take your advice to improve the presentation of my characters. Admittedly this was kinda rushed at about 1am so it wasn't as good as it could have been.

I love this armor combination! One of the few looks where I thought the pants armor fits the overall design. The dyes are again well done, giving her a very noble and wealthy look. Screens are also fantastic for a first upload, especially the top row middle picture.
Love it.
