Brothers In Crime by Isriana Brothers In Crime by Isriana
Oh my god. I actually finished it. I've been working on this painting since March, and I swear I gave up on it probably seven times and now it's finally finished. :faint: I can't even tell how many hours I've put into this - painting that brick wall alone took me over four hours, that I can remember (and so does my hand).
I've wanted to paint this pretty much ever since I joined the Thieves Guild. I absolutely love the faction and all characters who belong in it. So here's my Imperial thief Bron Martes hanging out in the Ragged Flagon with his brothers in crime: Vipir who was nicknamed "the Fleet" after a heist gone wrong, Rune who doesn't recall his past, Cynric who used to be a professional jailbreaker, Niruin who chose thieving life instead of becoming a wealthy merchant like his father, and a former bandit Thrynn. No senior members, no new recruits or other operatives - just these five thieves as they were in the very beginning of Thieves Guild questline, plus a certain low level cutpurse who would climb up the ranks sooner than he'd expect. Ah, the nostalgy... :happycry:
Anyway, I'm thrilled that I managed to get this done in the first place - I hope you like it as well!

That ceiling... how did you have the patience to draw that? *Bows down to you*

I Admit it, when i first heard of the thief guild i thought: "Man, those must be some bunch of jerks if they would kill each other for a coin"

once i met them however i saw them in a entirely different light. as some sort of Friendly thieves who try to make money trough dark but rather harmless crimes (i consider thieves compared to bandits harmless, also, they have a "No-Kill" policy)

oh and, first time i met brynjolf all i thought was "Why do you look like my Thief Character?!"

Okay, this whole thing is amazing, but the fact that you totally nailed the domed, brick ceiling in both here and in "Everything Is A Contest" is extremely impressive. The detailed, recognizable background of the Ragged Flagon makes it all the more immersive and really breaths life into the picture. I can just imagine all these handsome men drinking and laughing and interacting in a way I didn't get to see in the game. Well done.

It's amazing! I love how you've got the light from the fire reflecting off each of the characters! You should do more...

I joined the Thieves Guild with my second character... never thought I'd have so much fun sneaking around stealing stuff! best part of it is Delvin, Vex, Brynjolf, Brynjolf's accent, and Nightingale armor :)
