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!

Someone posted this on their Deviantart.  I reported it as stealing (in theirs not yours)

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.

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 :)

This is AMAZING I am absolutely blown away. 

When I first played Skyrim I hated the Thieves Guild; so much so in fact that i didn't even continue it after returning the Skeleton key. To be honest I was frustrated because i didn't know doing jobs for Delvin and Vex would get me further in the quest line. Well that was maybe a year or so ago and I just started playing Skyrim again. This time around my character is a thief, so that is to say I put on my big girl panties and muscled through the entire Guild quest line. So, I am so very happy to say that the Thieves Guild is my absolute favorite faction; being just a step above The Dark Brotherhood but that is because the DB line was too short and had very little depth so... yeah XD (That was just my little rant lol) ^_^

Oh my :heart:
I swear, Riften has the best-looking guys in whole of Skyrim..
Bethesda truly trolled the fangirls when they did not make any of them marriageable.. That's what consoles are for...

I nearly cried when DB did no have any good-looking characters...
...Or maybe I'll just marry Shadowmere

I agree, all the assassins aren't so good looking. They're nice looking, like Astrid's cool, and Cicero looks pretty awesome, but none of them seem to ever appeal as "attractive"
Except to all those Cicero fangirls xD

:icondeepdarksiren:
DeepDarkSiren Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
hahaha yes!
Astrid does have the "leader" look, and Cicero is just... jester-y..

I think if they had a good-looking assassin, maybe Brynjolf's stock market would not be this high...

:iconsparkzzzzzz:
Sparkzzzzzz Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Exactly xD Like if they put a member in that looked like Brynjolf, then thieves wouldnt be so popular xD
From what I've learned so far, Astrid and Cicero are BOTH the most loved and most hated characters in the DB xD

Yes. I like mad people in general, they make life more interesting. But Cicero is... too much.

And Astrid was a hypocritical bich. 'Nuff said.

Mostly because then it would have taken me probably another six months to finish this... :XD: And also because these regular fellows get much less attention than Brynjolf or Delvin for example.
