Familiar Shores by Isriana Familiar Shores by Isriana
Whee, my very first The Elder Scrolls Online fan art. And so it begins. ;) I got into the beta test last weekend and had a chance to play around with the game a bit. I picked a Breton sorcerer and ran around exploring some Daggerfall Covenant areas. My mind has been bubbling with ideas since last Friday, so I decided to start with drawing a scenery I came across somewhere along the coastline of High Rock. I’d like to think that my Breton lass grew up someplace like this. :D

Also featured in the latest The Tamriel Chronicle issue - yay!

I am going to make a video about my views on what the elder scrolls 6 is about and i think it's going to be about High Rock and the Bretons. That could be very cool but I was wondering if i could borrow this picture for that video. I am trying to find all the pictures I can on the Bretons and High Rock.

Many thanks in advance!!

Mmh, I saw this on the Eso page and thought that this style seems somehow familiar from DeviantArt... hehe.
It's beautiful. And so peaceful! I'd really like to be there too.

Woohoo! ESO!

If you get the full game, which faction will you play as? Just curious. I'm a nord at heart...  ebonheart, that is!


..Not even sorry. Bad pun is bad.

All of them, I reckon. But since I grew quite fond of my little Breton sorcerer during the beta, I think I'll start with The Daggerfall Covenant. :D

Fair enough. Should we meet in Cyrodiil... actually, hold that thought. I really don't want to kill you :D

....Or be killed by you, come to think of it. Let's just avoid that bit of potential unpleasantness, eh?

First I thought, Laraniel, then I read 'Breton' and 'Noelie'... :facepalm:

I got into the beta, but I didn't like TESO as much. Just felt not like TES enough. Still happily playing Morrowind and Skyrim.

Familiar indeed. It makes me think of the Swedish east coast archipelago. I love the hazy evening sunshine and the little Daisies (or Elderscroll equivalent) in the foreground. Lovely mood and I can almost feel the warm breeze in my hair. :love:

This is a beautiful painting. With the hair, she sorta looks like you (although that's what you probably aimed for). When I saw the title, I thought you were creating a scenery of Skyrim or Morrowind and showing your ESO character there. But you created something else, something beautiful. With no lore or games to tie down the look and feel of each of the new provinces, High Rock looks amazing. It looks like Elder Scrolls, but it looks significantly different than Skyrim, Oblivion, or Morrowind. I looked at so many art and gameplay to guess where the screenshot/art is taken from. In this one, I know it isn't Skyrim. Then I saw the house on the island, it has a grid look... which looks like Daggerfall architecture (the last time we saw that architecture was in Pelagiad in Morrowind). Now, I can only guess and not always get the right answer (because it could just be a Breton house in another province). But this looks beautiful. Plus, you said it was High Rock in the description. :)

Woah, your detailing is amazing. Wish I could color like you.

Something else that's special in this drawing is that you give off a "Traditional Art" feeling in here, even though it's digital, and I REALLY like it.

Great piece :)

Side note: Can't wait to play TESO myself :P

Beautiful artwork! It's amazing how much emotion is in a landscape!

Throughout the beta, I made sure to spend time in every alliance. They all managed to be equally beautiful diverse.

Personally I loved the landscaped around Stros M'Kai more than Glenumbra, but then again I was playing a Redguard.

Looks awesome and I agree, the game felt very close to the usual Elder Scrolls feel. I wished I could play it once it is out of beta but that monthly fee...ouch. I think I've paid enough for Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Thank you! Yeah, tell me about it. I have to put my SWTOR subscription on hold when I start playing this - there's no way I can afford both of them... :P I really hope this will become one of those buy-to-play MMOs like Guils Wars 2.

It has got a bit of a bad reputation from the reviews, so I'm hoping it goes buy to play, instead of free to play.

I'll probably see what it'll cost in a few months, depending on if I have a good enough gaming PC/console for it (uses a 360 and an old XP for gaming).

I, sure that Elder Scrolls Online is a good game, but since it is a multiplayer game, it was forced to sacrifice the freedomes that Skyrim has.

True, but I didn't even expect anything else. After all, it is a MMO which is by definition very different from those single-player experiences we've been used to. Personally, I was happily surprised how much of that "Elder Scrolls feeling" developers had managed to retain in this game. I found similarities to all previous TES games I've played - some Skyrim in the game mechanics, some Oblivion in the landscapes, some Morrowind in character models and so on. I know I had lots of fun during the beta, and I'm really looking forward to playing this game. :)
