My Skyrim character, Solveig. Skyrim faces have a lot better detail than this, but this is a paintover of a cellphone pic, so. There's some really cool lighting in many of the dwarven ruins. And ah, Nightingale Armour, how I miss you.
I'm not crazy about the mouth, but all the female mouths were too full/pouty, so this is as good as it got. I was pleased I could at least have spock eyebrows. Yes, that's an Amulet of Mara. I be wooin' bitches.
She's a Nightingale/Assassin/Werewolf/Mage/Bard/Thane/Dragonborn. That's not super munchkiny, mirite?
This is a Nord-Warrior, as seen in the "Elder Scrolls" games. The upcoming Elder Scrolls will take place in Skyrim, the home of the Nord, and I got inspired by this.
I started this after seeing the first Skyrim artwork and it took me until today. I put all of my blood and sweat into this, this is the best I can currently pull of. And I'm proud of it, because it took so long I wanted to give up so many times (because I just started out of the blue without any idea of what the hell I got into with this picture).
Anyway, I used no 1 on 1 references. The process of this picture was "paint, break apart and put it back together" until it looked right. The arm, for example, was painted about 20 times (and probably still isn't 100% correct).
ca. 100 hours. Photoshop CS5
Wow, this was posted on the official Elder Scrolls Facebook page yesterday What an honour! And I'v got 1700 "likes" and more than 300 comments there for it, how 'bout that! I am certainly enjoying my few minutes of fame
So, I've been playing buttloads of Skyrim lately and felt like drawing some Draugr dude. I actually like their designs a lot, especially the blue eyes. Anyways, I kinda rushed with this one, cause again, I didn't feel like going realistic on it lol. I hope you guys like it
