Re-did the names with a computer font to get rid of my crap handwriting, also added a little description of each of their "spheres" which are essentially what each has dominion over. I couldn't shorten Mephala's to less than 3 words, so I just used her nickname. Some are misaligned due to me not planning this ahead.
Yes there's no Jyggalag, I didn't forget him, I just felt he threw off the symmetry. 17 doesn't divide well.
Also, Peryite is listed as order, yes, I know, pestilence blah blah Jyggalag, but that wasn't leaned on very heavily until Skyrim, and this was made 10 days before it came out. Meanwhile in Oblivion he goes on about order and in the guide to the daedra it says "Peryite, whose sphere is the ordering of the lowest order of The Oblivion"

HUGE picture. Probably my largest undertaking ever.
In anticipation for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, I wanted to draw all 16 Daedric princes (for some reason even the girls are called princes...) as separate drawings, then I realize that's really time consuming, and they actually look pretty sweet in Chibi form. The designs are mixed, some are based on Daggerfall, others on Oblivion, others combine bits of both.
I was going to put brief descriptions, but instead I'll just link to here imperial-library.info/content/…
it's a good reference. Even if you don't play the game, the mythology is pretty fun. Get enough interest and you'll start working their influence into crossovers you'll never have time to write.
I don't think I'll ever be able to draw a serious picture of Nocturnal now though, with the kitty face I think adorable is the only way to go.
