It's about time I drew something Elder Scroll related. =u= Geez, this took like, 3-4 days. I lost count. I'm so dumb for wanting to try and experiment with different digital painting methods. //dies It's of my Skyrim character, a female Bosmer. I suck at drawing the Elven long, pointed faces. But I tried getting the eyes right. |D Also I'm quite sure many ES fans are well aware that the Nightingale armor isn't all that shiny. My apologies. I think. I kind of like it this way, though? But yeah, 3. Whole. Days. щ(ಠ益ಠщ)
By the way has anyone heard of the Elder Scrolls Online coming out? Oh my goodness I am fangirling like the nerd I am. (✿ ♥‿♥)
I love these dragon priests from Skyrim... they are so mysterious and powerful, it makes you think about the time they were alive and ruled alongside the dragons. So, as Alduin is my favorite character from Skyrim I like to think he, as master of all dragons might have had a priest as well.
Imagining some "friendly" relationship between him and any human is already fun, because you know... he is freaking Alduin, the world eater
I think that this woman, to be choosen as Alduin's protector and worshipper must be a very fearsome person....
About her appearance, you might not even see her without the mask and robes covering her body, because she is an albino and sun is very harmfull to her skin. She is almost entirely white in contrast with Alduin who is dark, but they have the same red eyes... perhaps that's what makes Alduin have some care towards her at first sight... He calls her Yolmiin wich means fire eyes in dragon language
Being an albino she was pursued her whole life because of suspersticious people... this might have lead her to hate all people and prefer the company of dragons such as Alduin
So,this is my page for the TES 2013 Calendar project by I had done March again in the previous 2010 project,haha XD
Now,this image could get some reaction,since it is a pairing of opposing factions from Skyrim,Thalmor and Stormcloaks.Obviously,with Thalmor being the bad guys,there are not many fans of them around XD But I don't like seeing things bure black and white.Unfortunately,I can only recall one or two "good" Altmer from the game,which were merchants XD Of course,a scenario needs good and evil,but I was really disappointed that there was no single Thalmor who acted friendly,or had doubts in their doings or ways.Personally,I think there should've been at least one character like that. Anyway,since the game didn't give me what I was looking for,I created her myself To show that what's important are the individuals and not groups... And I imagine that the younger recruits who are being fueled and possibly used by their elders wouldn't hold an equally strong grudge against eachother as the first generation.Living close for long periods leading to relationships is pretty possible I think.And this could lead to alternate ends of the war,probably one with less blood.
So,the pic doesn't really have any relation to the month,besides the weather maybe XD.But perhaps this could remind you to give a second chance to people you think you didn't like this month.Who knows what may come out
Technical wise,I'm unfortunately not really able to say I'm satisfied with this picture.The black and white lineart looked pretty good,but when I start coloring I have hard time maintaining the atmosphere I want the pic to have.Leading to colors that do not get along with eachother XD But well,you gotta keep trying to get there,and here you're seeing one of the attempts.And of course,tomorrow was the deadline for this XD
