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
Gosh I love Edo-Natsu!!!! He's so lovely cute when he cries x33 I wanted to draw him with Edo-Silica at first, because he would be her fan, but then I thought "He is scared by Edo-Lucy~... He would be even more scared by Edo-Sili, when he would find out, how criminal she was..." And then I imagined about their meeting. Silica is nice and friendly and she cares about her friends. So when she meets Edo-Natsu while he is bullied by Lucy again, she comforts him :3 (so it would make her to his nee-chan *lol*)
I took references from Edolas Fairy Tail Guild Location and I draw the outline to Edo-Natsu from the 21th DVD Cover (I think), where he and Earthland-Natsu are seen together. Maybe I draw the counterpart of this pic. With Natsu and Edo-Sili xD
- cough - of course Silica is NOT taller than Natsu xD While he sits, she kneels behind him :3 - cough cough - I was a bit lazy with coloring the background... at first it was the whole tree with the guild, but then the Fairy Tail sign wouldn't be seen, so I cut it v.v"
