Ellara Cousland by Isriana Ellara Cousland by Isriana
My addition to :iconcastle-of-highever:'s Cousland Portrait Gallery. :pointr: [link]
So here is my Grey Warden called Ellara Cousland from Dragon Age: Origins. She's the first character I created for this game and so far the only one with whom I've managed to see the end credits (and it took me sweet 80+ hours since I got slightly obsessed with side quests). At the moment I'm somewhere halfway through Awakening with her, so currently she's running around Ferelden in the role of a Warden-Commander and trying to figure out what the Darkspawn are plotting this time... :D

Some more artwork about her:

That is spooky. My Cousland looks just like yours! (Less so in the other pic, but at this angle it's spot-on...)

OMG you did the Phoenix Armor!  That is absolutely my favorite female armor mod.  I love this, love your style and love that you used that (or a seriously close copy of it!)

Getting this game...eventually! What class-race would you recommend? I'm thinking Dwarf Rogue.

I personally very much enjoyed playing as rogue (Dwarf Commoner especially) but mage is another fun class you might want to try. :D

Cool! Mage was my second choice, but never a warrior. ESPECIALLY as a human. I saw the noble ending and it looks so BORING!

Aww, my first origin was a human noble. As far as the story goes it's still one of my biggest favorites, but thinking about gameplay playing as a mage is just so much fun (and rogue on the other hand is the only one that can open locked stuff). :D

I'll keep a rogue in my party and some warriors, and I never once considered being a warrior. 
There is also a tabletop version of Dragon Age, like Dungeons and Dragons. Just thought you'd like to know.

By startling coincidence, I could swear I also played a redhead with this hairstyle at one point. It may have been the forgotten campaign in which I never defeated the Archdemon...

I always liked your drawings, be it the comical style, or the more realistic, but this one undeniably blew my mind! The way the sun sheds her light on Ellara, and all the little details on her armour...
Congratulations, I think you just outdid yourself!

Ah, a fellow "Cousland-fan". ;)

And a very good portrait it is. I especially like her hair and armor but perhaps the biggest impact in this portrait is that there can be felt some kind of sadness from her. A trait which "fits" Cousland characters very well.

Well done!

Considering that in my game Leliana is modded to look more like how she appeared in the Sacred Ashes trailer, I really can't tell... :XD:

Yeah, there is some likeness - unintentional, though, since I didn't know how anyone else would look in the game when I made my character. When I finally got tired of mixing the two thanks to their similar haircolor, I just decided to mod Leliana... :D
