For those who not know, Argonians are reptiles who drank saplings from a sentient plant a long period of time. Through this, the Hist shared its sentient abilities with them, and over time they developed their own mental capabilities, but always to be connected with the Hist. In this manner, what they see, so does the Hist!

I wanted to give more of a dragon feel to this one... I loved the idea of reptiles with dragon blood and features that Skyrim offered. But since Argonians and Dovah are so similar, wouldn't it be awesome to get some 'Dovahnians'? :D

I worked on this piece a couple of months... It contains tons of new techniques for me) and resources. It was difficult to get to the point where I was satisfied. I guess I ain't so happy even now, but it will have to do!

yeah...this is awesome. I don't have time to scroll thru your credits and figure out what you did, but this looks like a well polished piece to me.  I think you've just spent too much time staring at it to agree  lol

Way too much time. I had some black areas that annoyed me to the extreme, and I was lacking ideas to work with. My computer couldn't handle the psd to well either. It reached 700mb in some point. I had to create smart objects and clean the layers as much as possible.
Thank you. Feedback like yours gives me juice to go on!

I did not skip TESO, maybe not as good as Oblivion or Morrowind, but I like it.

TESO is to expensive. And it lacks the idea of exploring as it was in the single player ones. The entire content seems already 'profaned' by others. And the world does not evolve around your character story only, you are just a minion of many. 
What hurts me the most is that, as any MOBA, this will evolve in time to the point where BUILDs will play your game and create your character... the freedom and love of creativity will be crushed by lust for power!
I know its my own problem regarding this...since I dislike MOBA's. I liked just Path of Exile, but it is so different from the rest.
My heart will remain in Morrowind. Countless hours of playing it... building various character to the extreme. What was most funny was a Khaajit with over 100 Acrobatics. Jumping from mushroom to mushroom...and sniping stuff.
Oblivion was boring...easy to break... over 100% chameleon & sneak  = GOD mode on. This is just one example.
