Lamia Stalks the Shadowfen by Miltonholmes Lamia Stalks the Shadowfen by Miltonholmes
I was going to start a series of drawings on Mythical Creatures, which led me to the Lamia. Giant snake creature, scales, sounded like a challenge. 
And then I found out that Lamias are an enemy type in Elder Scrolls Online. I like Elder Scrolls Online, so it was a logical choice to have a go at the Lamia from ESO. Here one is in it's natural habitat, the Shadowfen.

I've been a bit ambitious this time, with my most intricate background ever. In places it's a bit rough, but certain details (like the water) i'm pretty chuffed with.

If you're interested, this isn't the first time Lamias have appeared in the Elder Scrolls franchise: en.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:Lamia

Hey, thanks for the top lore knowledge! Personally, i'm a fan of ESO's take on Lamia over Daggerfall's more vanilla woman+snake - how about you?

I've always considered the ESO "lamias" to fit my definition of "nagas," more, while the Daggerfall versions fit my definitions of "lamias."

Very valid point. Then again, Elder Scrolls has weird ideas about what Nagas are too :P

No argument there.
