Since my first Dragon Priest stamp went over pretty well, I decided to make another, for the few more that you confront in Skyrim's "Dragonborn" expansion
In the order that they are shown on the stamp, each priest can be found in the following locations: - Ahzidal - Kolbjorn Barrow (Solstheim's Southern Ashlands) - Dukaan - White Ridge Barrow (Solstheim's Northern Mountains) - Zahkriisos- Bloodskal Barrow (Solstheim's Southern Ashlands) - Miraak - Apocrypha (Oblivion)
This is a stamp I wanted to make for a little while now, featuring the major antagonists of Skyrim and its two major DLCs
These are the fiends, in order (slight spoilers):
- Alduin - The primary antagonist of "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim", Alduin was a powerful dragon (known commonly as 'The World Eater') who ruled over Skyrim in ancient times. Eventually, his Nordic opressors banished him forward in time, but this allowed him to wreak havok upon Skyrim (and all of Tamriel) in the Fourth Era. With Alduin's sudden appearance, and the return of his draconic thralls, the legendary Dragonborn appeared, destined to defeat him.
- Lord Harkon - The primary antagonist of the "Dawnguard" expansion, Lord Harkon is a powerful vampire, and leader of the Volkihar Vampire Clan, obtaining his impure and immortal status through a pact with the Daedaric lord Malog Bal. With the coming of the Dragonborn, the hero is given the chance to either side with Harkon and his ruthless clan; or to join the Dawnguard, a special organization specialized in combating Harkon and his minions.
- Miraak - The primary antagonist of the "Dragonborn" expansion, Miraak was supposidly the first Dragonborn. Instead of using his special gift to save the land of Skyrim, however, he chose a different path. Miraak ruled over the inhabitants of Solstheim, as a powerful Dragon Priest, gaining much of his power from the Daedric Prince Hermaeus Mora. By the Fourth Era, in the wake of Miraak's return, the new Dragonborn travels to Solstheim to confront this rival foe.
Ancestry is always extremely important in knowing about your family's history. One of Archer's friends can even claim ancestry to the Champion of Cyrodiil. Archer also knows someone whose ancestor was the Nerevarine. Archer may not be able to claim heritage to a great hero, but his family tree is less than humble.
Lao-Shan Lung: Meaning "Old Mountain Dragon", Lao is popularly believed to be the size of a mountain, or bigger. Lao-Shan Lung usually resides in solitude, preferably in the rocky mountain ranges, where minerals are abundant. It is generally peaceful, but can cause problems when it comes into contact with human settlements, wreaking havoc on even the strongest fortresses.
Godzilla: Known as the King of Monsters, Godzilla used to be a dinosaur, but irradiation from nearby nuclear fallout created a giant, mutated dinosaur-beast known as Godzilla. Godzilla is 100-meters tall, and is a walking death threat. Countless attempts by the Japanese military to kill him have all failed, even with the assistance of giant military-made monster machines, like Mechagodzilla 2. Godzilla, despite having threatened to destroy all of Japan, has also saved the world several times, against demon-monsters, hostile space aliens, and more.
Tyrannosaurus Rex: Native to the Cretaceous Period, the Tyrannosaurus Rex has been known as a fierce hunter. At 40 feet long and around 20 feet tall, tyrannosaurus rex was an apex predator.
Alien Queen: The Alien Queen is the head of the Xenomorph hive. She is smarter than most other Xenomorphs, and is their sole method of reproduction. She lays hundreds of eggs every day, leaving her motionless. However, she can break off the egg-sac to be mobile, and when she's not giving birth, she is a walking nightmare; she's fast, lethal, and it would take an entire team of Predators to bring one down, not to mention having to go through the rest of the Hive, including her special bodyguards, the Praetorian aliens, whose purpose is to protect the Queen against invaders.
Velociraptor: A cunning, and quick predator, the Velociraptor is a dangerous dinosaur. The Velociraptor is a social animal, and is very smart as well. It is one of the earliest examples of cooperation in nature amongst creatures of the same species.
Xenomorph: These creatures are the reason why people are afraid of the dark. Black as night, and silent as death, these creatures are biologically superior to any other natural creature; their mobility is unmatched, being able to scale almost any kind of surface, and they can swim; their blood is acid; their heightened senses allow them to detect any prey. They're pretty friggin' dangerous, man.
And thus through numerous strange unions the Dragonborn was created.
Sorry guys, I haven't been able to post much Skyrim or GMOD or anything else. It's a complicated situation, but the bottom line is that the computer I currently have access to is not as good as the last one, but that'll change, I promise. This is why the colors are also a bit weird.
Skyrim screenshot Manipulation by me. THis was a very hard one to manip because the original had virtually no light or colour, which was a shame. But I loved the composition and intensity so some extreme filters were in order.

This piece was built around an old drawing of mine of a draugr that I submitted here under a different name. It was a mere drawing of the creature with bland background so I remade it into something more interesting and complete. I hope you like it.
My second but now favorite Dovahkiin, Kurn, Harbinger of the Companions. I think he's basically a decent guy, despite being a perpetual grump. He's probably happiest pounding away at the forge, lost in the zen rhythm of the ringing hammer.
But there's always those damn dragons showing up everywhere. The gods won't get off their exalted asses to deal with Alduin, so it seems like it's fallen to a lone orc.
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.
I was too lazy to draw the necklace in the other comic. So I made it an excuse to make a follow-up comic. (Because he's so much fun to draw!) Will he ever get his necklace back? This new one will have to do until then.
Oh and I fixed his hair. Looks better and fluffier now.
Ok, so I found out my dad's camera sucks even more than mine when taking pictures of paintings... so I ended up using my own camera. OTL Looks way better irl. But this will have to do.
So here it finally is. My painting of a Xivilai from TES 4 Oblivion. They are my favorite daedra from that game. Just look at how awesome and pretty. 8D I love their hair. It's so fluffy! Well, I think they are very awesome. I might make more fanart of them. :>
--EDIT-- Link at the bottom of the comic is still my old username. Will change that sometime. --EDIT--
When random encounters in Skyrim become extra random... The fugitive seems to only come at the worst or most random times.
This actually happened to me yesterday. And Omg I actually finished a comic in 1 day! LE GASP! D8
Yes... I transformed into a werewolf and traveled the road. I just killed a group of bandits and continued on my way. Then I heard footsteps coming from behind me. Thinking I may have missed a bandit I turned around. Then this guy showed up, talked to me, gave me some enchanted Dwarven boots and left...
There are so many reasons why this is so random. 1. Someone approches you when you're a werewolf without being hostile towards you. (Someone who isn't a Companion or Dark Brotherhood member) 2. Someone talks to you when you're a werewolf. 3. You talk back as a werewolf and he understand you. 4. He then gives you an item. 5. You can actually carry the item even though you cannot pick up items as a werewolf. 6. He then leaves you without realizing you're a werewolf and still doesn't become hostile towards you.
Soon after, the hunter who pursuits him came and asked if I saw anyone run by. And then I told him where he went. Except I already killed him. (Yeah well... what idiot threatened a werewolf with death. Then you're just asking for trouble. Besides the hunter would have killed him anyways. ) The hunter then attacked me, so at least he was not a complete retard. xD;
