Daughter of the North by Isriana Daughter of the North by Isriana
Just another portrait featuring my nord girl, Skaila Skaran, in north Skyrimian landscape. This has been waiting as WIP on my computer for a while now - thanks to the long weekend I had (for once) enough time to just sit with my Photoshop all day and actually make some progress... :D
I think I should be tired of painting snowy stuff considering that the drift outside just reached my windowsill yesterday, and it's whirling more snow at this very moment. I'm telling you, soon we can't see the landscape anymore. Yet in Skyrim I still have a brief "OMG, so pretteh"-moment every time I travel to Winterhold or some other place where it snows heavily. As if I haven't seen enough of that in real life already... :XD:

how are you people able to come up with these names for your characters that sound like they belong in the game. I had to talk about my name for my character with my friend. And he wanted the last name of my character to be "Thunder-Fuck". LMAO!

A snowstorm? She'll want to get that hood up. Cold air through the ears (shudders). Massive headache, BELIEVE me!

She's a Nord, and they're adapted to that kind of cold ;).

I wonder what crush is.
I mean by Bron it is Vex but what is it by her.
Just want you to give you a idea for your next art hope you don't mind.
Great Art by the way.

So prettyyyyh! Damn, why can't I look like that when it's snowing? I'm always wrapped in coats, scarves, mittens and woolly hats with an "I don't want to go outside" expression.

By the way, Skaila (what a lovely name!) looks a little like my Skyrim character Gia only that she doesn't wear any face paint.

Anyways, continuing to admire your work now... ~>

These are pieces of art. No doubt about it.

Btw, Isriana, have you read the blog stories of Nordrick the Non-adventurer? The nord who tired to live in Skyrim without having adventures, but live as a normal citizen? If you haven't, here's the link. His "non-adventures are quite surprisingly fun to read!
