Fires At Midnight by Isriana Fires At Midnight by Isriana
:music: Blackmore's Night: Fires At Midnight :music:

This was meant to be a quick speed painting, but I sort of got hung up on the details longer than I intended… So it's not quite a speed painting nor as finished as my usual paintings, but I kind of liked the atmosphere so I though I might post it just as well.
Anyway, here’s once again my Dovahkiin, Skaila Skaran, stopping to warm up a little before continuing her journey to Whiterun. Also, I recorded most of this painting process to my Livestream account and then somehow managed to lose the whole footage. :stare: Ah well, you'll see me paint some other time then.

This is such a lovely piece! I really like how you've set the mood for it. And now I've just realised I really need to learn to colour digitally lol. I'm still getting used to it :P

is...is that the Gaint camp? O_O somehow "just stoping to quckly warm myself on a camp fire" WOULD involve slaying 20 foot tall monster in the Dobahkiin world... they just HAVE to do everything the hard way. >_>

The level of detail in this is, quite frankly astounding. The entire thing has a nice, realistic feel to it that gives the impression of an actual scene from real life, the shading in particular was done incredibly well.

Neat. So are you going to join the Dawnguard or the Vampire Lords?

Well, Skaila here joined the Dawnguard. :D
And then there's Bron - even I don't know what he's about to do... :XD:

Uh huh. Well I'm going to have Justin fight for the Dawnguard after he kills Ulfric and cures his Lycanthropy (After he gets the perks),because the son of Mephala doesn't need to be a werewolf. And I think Verona will become a Vampire Lord at a time I haven't decided yet.
