15 hours (or more because I don't really time myself) with a Pentel 0.7 mechanical pencil on printer paper because I've ran out of sketch pad paper.

Odahviing, one of two dragon partners in TES 5: Skyrim. His name translates from Dovah tongue to Snow Hunter Wing. He's pretty much your aerial assault on crowd control.

I can't do the patterns on his wings since I'm not really sure how to go about them but I'm going to paint it up in Photoshop and add the pattern in Digitally. Also, finding good references for Odahviing is like finding a needle in a hay stack

. I have the PS3 version of Skyrim and I wish I got an Xbox 360 a long time ago instead because the game is horribly glitchy and of course, Sony are wankers for having a crappy 6 year old console that has a problem with running 20+ hour DLCs. Not Bethesda's fault. Blame Sony.

This is something I actually excel at. Drawing proper demonic dragons. Fuck Pokémon and the other cartoony crap I draw, I've been drawing dragons since I was three and I'm now 25 next month.

That's amazing. D: I like the detail work on the scales, and he really does look like he's popped out of the game.

I had PSN funds sitting around in case DLC did come out, but I just spent them on something else recently. xD

Wheee! Cheers Jen!

That DLC is not going to come out for the PS3. Its more than likely to come out for the GOTY edition that just being released separately. Its like what happened with Oblivion. No DLCs for the PS3 unless you get the special five year anniversary game that came out last year.

Holy Sh[Buy Some Apples!]t!

Fantastic work! I absolutely understand 15 hours on one drawing. I can only imagine how long Bethesda's art team must take for everything they do.

Pfft, no need to censor the swearing with me. =P

I forgot to eat as well when I was doing this.

The Bethesda concept artist for Skyrim died a few months ago. =(

Cheers for the comment and fav!
