TES: Sheogorath by coupleofkooks TES: Sheogorath by coupleofkooks
Sheogorath, chatting (and drinking something) with a chicken. Don't ask, I don't know .__.

I started this yesterday, it was pretty fun to paint :]

Sheo belongs to Bethesda.
They can have the chicken too :] It's probably one of those Wabbajacked chickens anyway.

Also, to the person who took my artwork and tried to use it as their own: don't. Just. Don't. It's stealing, it's lame, and it has very short legs.

I've never played oblivion.
Only skyrim and honestly, out of all the degric quests, sheogorath was my favorite. I know where some c focused solely on him in oblivion but that's going to take a bit to get.
anyway, perfect representation of the mad god and his eccentricities

Now this, THIS is what the Shivering Isles should look like! :D (Big Grin)

THIS IS AWESOME! Its like a Salvador Dali painting. This is a masterpiece!

I wish the designers of the Elder Scrolls games were as creative as the artist who made this amazing artwork. This artist should be hired by Bethesda to design the realms of Oblivion in the next Elder Scrolls games. :) (Smile)

Hello there :]

The artist thanks You and would definitely die of happiness if ever could design even the smallest piece of Sheogorath's realm.

TES mod community made me a fantastic present though, and used this artwork as a doorway to Shivering Isles in this mod:…?

and it does look awesome :]…

Thank you for letting me use it! Sorry it took so long to write on here.
You are very talented and depict Sheo very well. I only wish I could have done more with your work. Or that you did Vaermina too. ;)

I'm definitely getting that mod! :D (Big Grin)  Thanks for giving me a link to it!

A chicken...    Why not a mudcrab?
Okay, they are losy conversationalists, but at least they have table manners.

Bet you a million septims, that chicken is Nazeem.
CuddleyCat1 Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2016
Awe, poor lonely Sheo :( This picture is hilarious though, and man, I can't help but notice that is one SEXY Sheogorath! You have captured him perfectly. <3

A chat with a chicken is just the best in the world except a chat with sheogorath! :) I love this pic!!! <3

This looks so expressive :O *
chris-the-sword Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
WOAH! sheogorath looks so badass in this one!
the shading/lighting, and the bright red colour of the liquid inside the glass(the one glass that sheogorath holds, and that is connected with the one the chicken has as well...)

i have only ONE complaint:
sheogorath has epic humour, so if this was his chamber/room, he would have done some funny stuff as well!
he could maybe even use the wabbajack!

good work man, excellent drawing of the mad-sheogorath, king of insanity!
coupleofkooks Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2015
thanks for the comment and sorry for a late reply XD

Sense of humour - yes indeed. Though I always remember that his realm is only half Mania. The other half is Dementia and I imagine that Sheo himself has to have this side as well, though well hidden and rarely visible.

Cheers! <3
chris-the-sword Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
no problem, your art rocks, and you have great skills!

also, yes, he is half-mania, (creative insanity), and half dementia (half-evil-madness), but it still makes him an interesting and unique character.
i also like shagallath, the god of order in TES: oblivion...
he is cool.

thank you for your nice reply, keep making awesome art!

I cant help but laugh. Wheres the dragonborn and wabbajack when you need them?
coupleofkooks Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2015
if You ask about my Dragonborn he is probably stealing the sh*t out of everything or trying to light the fire in the snowy wilds XD thanks :]
KyuubitheZoroark Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2015
Lol meanwhile sheogorath is stealing all the CHEESE in skyrim

Sometimes I wish, I (not my Khajiit) can meet Sheo and have a chat with him. :D

This captures what Sheogorath really is, a mad daedric prince, he isn't as fun and jolly as he might appear. He is far mor sinister, and this image captures that.
AdistroughtWOLF Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
there aren't words to describe how good this picture is from both a critical and technical stand point.  the use of color, the context, content... everything about this picture is wonderful!  

this is,  hands down, my favorite picture of Sheogorath Period.  fan made or otherwise.  This is worthy of rewards.  

Congratulations.  you've made a memory for me.

Totally a regular day in Sheogorath's life.

Hi there, i'm a huge TES fan and i think your depiction of Sheogorath ( my favorite TES character) is amazing ! I was wondering can i use this artwork as an avatar on the Spacebattles forum,please? ( of course i'll be sure to credit you and if you want to also post a link to you if you let me.)
coupleofkooks Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2014
Sure, go ahead :] thanks for asking :D
sakurakira Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2014
It's taken me a while to realize this, but many of your pieces, particularly this one, remind me of the art of Wayne Barlowe. Limited color palate, lots of shading and details, and dark atmosphere. I especially like the intense way you draw faces. Very nice work, as usual.
coupleofkooks Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2014
haven't seen his work before, but they're very interesting, will look deeper into it :] thanks :]

Hi, I love what you did with Sheogorath! Can I use it on my forum for my post on this character, please?
coupleofkooks Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2013
sure, go ahead :] thanks for asking :D
ElaNeith Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2013  Hobbyist
That would have been rude to take your work without your permission.
Thanks to you!
SeerWalker Featured By Owner May 31, 2013
This seems entirely plausible to me. In fact, it's probably highly likely that this scenario would occur.
rednecksniper Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2013
considering the character, chatting with a chicken is an entirely reasonable, and normal thing for you to draw/paint, great work.
the-exiled-muse Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2013
With the fumes coming off of the glasses, I don't think I would want to partake of that vintage. Nice work!
