Keep To The Shadows by Isriana Keep To The Shadows by Isriana
Since I had a lovely long Christmas holiday I decided to create another character for Skyrim. My nord girl Skaila favors two-handed axe and is a member of Companions so I felt like trying a different approach to the game.
So here is my second Dovahkiin - imperial guy called Bron Martes. On a side note, his first name is inspired by an awesome character Bronn in George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire, and the last name is latin for marten (which describes his demeanor pretty well). He is a member of Thieves Guild and can deliver some seriously mean sneak attacks with his dwarven bow. He's also skilled in smithing but hey - why spend all your time creating stuff when you can just steal someone else's? ;) I know that this picture doesn't show much of his appearance but I just couldn't leave the Thieves Guild hood out. It's kind of Ezio Auditore-ish and I just love it.

He also does this every now and then -> [link] :D

I remember this quest...I kept running through the lights and kept dying until I realize that there are dead bodies under the lighted areas.

This is pretty good, but I got bad news for you. Somebody stole it from you and claimed it as their own art at chimera1993.deviantart.com/art…

I bet he couldn't walk into the Louvre and steal a piece of artwork. He's a bloody coward, if you ask me. Shame people have to drop to such levels (but there's absolutely nothing wrong with it in-game).

I noticed, and I've reported it already - the same person stole another one of my paintings, too. :/ I wonder how long it's going to take for deviantART to process my request to have them removed.
Nonetheless, thank you for keeping an eye out and letting me know!

No problem. Art thieves on Deviant art are like Bandits in Skyrim. Unacceptable. Not to mention this guy has stolen plenty of other things from other people.

It looks more like Cynric Endell. It's gorgeous, though!

Is that a Dwarven or Glass Bow? I get those two mixed up.

He reminds me of how Aragorn/"Strider" looked when you first see him in LotR.

Hey something I was wondering was, is that in the elder scrolls online you can't play imperials, ( hence no imperial thief characters) what race do you think you will play?

I think I'll go for something I haven't tried yet like a Khajiit, a Readguard or a Dunmer... :D

well I guess redguard is the closest you could get to an imperial, not to mention they're in the dagger fall covenant (by far my favorite group)

Very awesome!
Reminds me of my character. He also uses this armor and an enchanted elven bow.
Though he's Argonian. And an assassin. Just joined the Dark Brotherhood. And the Thievs Guild... And the Companions... And the Stormcloacks...
Ahhh let's face it, the first character ends up trying to do EVERYTHING!

I always get startled by how all those random thiefs in Riften always look just like my Bron here. I guess it's the hood and stubble goatee combination... :XD:
