The second painting from my "three Dovahkiins" series, featuring my Nord warrior Skaila Skaran. For the record, this is the first and the last time I'm going to paint that damn Wolf Armor she's wearing. Really, I absolutely love how it looks but drawing all those swirly details nearly killed my hand. Also, in case you were wondering, it is a modded version of the said armor - I came across this beautiful retexture of the original and I simply couldn't resist installing it: [link] Oh, and before someone observant points it out, I might add that boots depicted here aren't part of the set. I just happened to stumble upon some steel plate boots with a nice carry weight boost and - since most of you know how much I love looting and carrying junk around - my warrior girl is obviously wearing them. Still one more to go. The next painting shall be "The Thief" - I'm sure there's no surprise who's that going to be...
Just another portrait featuring my nord girl, Skaila Skaran, in north Skyrimian landscape. This has been waiting as WIP on my computer for a while now - thanks to the long weekend I had (for once) enough time to just sit with my Photoshop all day and actually make some progress... I think I should be tired of painting snowy stuff considering that the drift outside just reached my windowsill yesterday, and it's whirling more snow at this very moment. I'm telling you, soon we can't see the landscape anymore. Yet in Skyrim I still have a brief "OMG, so pretteh"-moment every time I travel to Winterhold or some other place where it snows heavily. As if I haven't seen enough of that in real life already...
I wanted to paint my latest character from The Elder Scrolls V but since I didn't have much time, I rushed with this a bit. I should be writing essays at this very moment and not hang around here, but oh well. So this is my Dovahkiin: a young Nord warrior called Skaila Skaran... from Skyrim. Yes, I'm aware thats a lot of s's and k's but I liked the name too much to change it. Currently my preferences are two-handed battleaxe (tons of damage!), hunting bow, sneaking around and looting waaay too much useless stuff because I'm such a hoarder. I decided to side with Stormcloaks (hence the armor) because I refuse to trust anyone who wants to execute me just for chuckles. Anyhow, hopefully I have time to paint something a bit more detailed when I get my most laborous courses done.

Been playing skyrim again a lot lately, made a new dunmer character that i love, so HAD TO DRAW HER. I must say i really like the dunmer design in skyrim, they so grim and gruff and awesomelooking DANGIT.
Ok so I have no idea what I'm supposed to be. I guess I'm some kind of vampire/Nightingale/Dark brotherhood assassin who just got out of bed...? Maybe I haven't slept in YEARS.
Whatever I am, I finally got around to making myself as a Skyrim character. I recently went more towards the dark side and less heroic. First a member of the Thieves Guild, and then I find myself in the company of the Dark Brotherhood as a sniper/assassin. This is a very interesting path, something I would never have thought to do before. I like it! SO HERE'S A PICTURE OF IT.
Earlier this Year is was swamped with 3D work and to be honest I was sick of it and needed a change.
So I decided to start doing Daily Sketches again. Searching for inspiration I stumbled back into the Paizo Message board and found an Thread called "Artists will depict your RPG Characters/Monsters". Perfect!
So I started digging in.
Can't remember the times exactly, Each of them took something between 1 1/2 and 3 hours.
I did four illustrations for the Pathfinder Fanzine Wayfinder #6 -> [link]
Bram and Liut are two Characters for Kalyna Conrads and Eric Nindleys Adventure "Ice and Darkness". I was asked to do two Head shot illustrations of the two characters as boys and two full body shots as adults, which was quite fun.
Due to the limited time I was only able to do a colored Version of them as boys.
