This picture is based on Erkeil's mod Enhanced Mighty Dragons for TESV Skyrim. It is taken as a screenshot from the game and then tweaked in Photoshop. By tweaking I mean playing with lighting, shadows, sharpening, blur etc. nothing is added into the picture that is not from game.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: Dragonborn. (11/05/2014)
Please click the image to zoom in for an increased level of detail and quality!
My most recent piece of digitally produced art work, an illustration of my own Dragonborn, the mighty Nordic War Hero, legendary Dragonslayer, and Imperial Legion Champion, Atlas Stormcrown. Lord of Heljarchen Hall, and warden of The Pale. Thane of Solitude, Whiterun, Falkreath, and defender of the frozen Northern lands.
Clad in mythical Stalhrim Armour and wielding weapons forged of the same enchanted ice, the Dragonborn travels alone across the wild frontier of the ash laden plains known as the island of Solstheim. On the Horizon, Morrowind's infamous volcano, the Red Mountain, can be seen, still choking ash forth into the sky from its latest eruption. An ash storm is brewing, preparing to engulf the island once more.
The drawing duration for this piece took from start to finish approximately sixty hours across several days, drawn using a Wacom Intuos 4 and Sketchbook Pro 2010 art software. I hope you all like it as either fans of the game, or my art in general! All art work seen here is entirely hand drawn by me, and The Elder Scrolls and Skyrim are owned copyrights of Bethesda/Zenimax. Resource images were used in the creation of this piece, all of which were taken by me of my in-game character.
Thanks and acknowledgments:
Firstly, I'd like to direct special thanks towards Shoddy Cast on Youtube, for providing a fantastic and well presented insightful series on the Lore of Elder Scrolls games, if you're not well informed on the series, or like me are a veteran of the franchise seeking a renewal of knowledge on the interesting world of Elder Scrolls, then I'd highly recommend you to check out their channel or to subscribe! They cover a fantastic array of events ranging from the very creation of Nirn, to the latest events in Skyrim! It was thanks to their magnificent videos that I was able to complete this piece to such a high standard!
I'd also like to thank Jeremy Soule for his fantastic work on the Elder Scrolls soundtracks, particularly for his work on Skyrim; and Bethesda Softworks for providing a great franchise and game to inspire me to be creative in the first place!

Big big big file This part is like the part 1 and 2 together And the last part (the 4th) will be the same lenght (or even more if I add some bonus...) Seriously, I can't stand working on this part anymore, so if you find something not colored, or some mistakes in the writing, please tell me.
And I already drew this Khajiit somewhere in the previous deviations. Find her if you can.
And yes, this Khajiit is going to have a bad time... But you'll see that in the next and last part
AND URAG GRO-SHUB IS THE BEST LIBRARIAN EVER! He's like my favourite orc from Skyrim! <3 Try to steal a book from him, just try, he will always find you. ALWAYS.
My Breton OC [link] I just wanted to draw her more realistic. I know she still looks quite different in every picture of her... I hope she is recognizable though. At least in this picture she looks almost exactly how she should look.
I'd only realised today that I have never been to Falkreath, and this is where I ended up. Suffice to say there is only one choice I'd ever make after speaking to the grieving parents.
This shot is not that great. I tried to do something a bit different with the lighting on his front via some TCL torch-carrying but it doesn't really look a lot better than the standard silhouette shot you see everybody taking. Oh well.
