Into The Light by Isriana Into The Light by Isriana
My first Oblivion themed painting! :dummy:
Here is my Imperial thief Brenna Martes finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel after a long and eventful crawl through sewers. Amulet of Kings in her pocket and a new (only slightly stuffy and moldy) armor on she makes her way towards the fresh air and freedom, deciding these are the last bars and rabid rats she's going to see for a long time... Obviously she couldn't be more wrong. :D Just see what happened next: [link]

One of the few times when you WANT to go into the light at the end of a tunnel.

This scene is just so lovely!  The long run up to the distant light is... quite epic! A great beginning on a fantasy rpg, no? :)

This was the first "Wow" moment I experienced when I first played Oblivion.  It was the first single-player RPG I ever played.

This is amazing. Captures the spirit of the Elder Scrolls perfectly.

Beautiful artwork, very well done!

Oblivion had one of the most exciting starts of any game I've played, and it lived up to its promise.

Light at the end of the tunnel, it surely was, after the dreary sewers. Knowing that you carry an empire's hopes on your newbie shoulders was an ambitious and exciting way to start the game.

First thing I did on exiting the tunnel was to steal a horse, get chased immediately by the guards, and finally landed up in jail. Again! I felt like a fool. LOL. :-)

Skyrim had an exciting start too, but the dragon fights left a lot to be desired for.

I love the way you portrayed that moment, when you finally are FREE to get out of there. It's a beautiful piece, and captures the feel of the scene perfectly.
