Nocturnal

'Everything about her was dark and shrouded, even the way she spoke and the acts she required of me. It took years for me to understand the simple fact that I could never understand Nocturnal. To understand Nocturnal is to negate her, to pull back the curtains cloaking her realm of darkness. As much as I loved her, I recognized the futility of unraveling her enigmas.'


Image based on the Daedric 'Prince' Nocturnal from the Elder Scrolls games. Those who've played Skyrim should notice some references to the Thieves guild questlines.
(Nocturnal is No.1 in a collection of 8 Images i'll be producing based on Daedric Princes.)

Here's No.2 - Hircine

I spent such a long time looking at her face that I didn't notice her hand at first. Truly amazing work.

I love the idea of Nocturnal but i'm always a little disappointed with how she looks in-game. I thought they could have done a lot with her appearance. I'm glad you like my version! <3
