The Mage by Isriana The Mage by Isriana
The first painting from what will be a series of three, featuring my Altmer mage Laraniel near the College of Winterhold. It was fun making a full body painting of her at last - I'm especially happy with the curly hair which nearly drove me crazy last time I tried to paint it. Colors were a bit challenging with this one, too, since I still haven't got quite used to High Elf color palette. There were several versions of sickly yellow before I finally landed with the one you see here... :D
Also, this ended up being a quinea pig for my texture painting experiments. I'm pretty happy with some things I came up with but there's still a lot to learn. Anyway, I hope you like it - stay tuned for "The Warrior" and "The Thief"... ;P

It is. But the college and part of the town are still intact.

She's so beautiful!! :love: I love how you made the College of Winterhold too! The role-playing that you do for each character's pretty inspirational. My first Skyrim character joined every faction and did every quest .. and unfortunately, got exceptionally boring. :( But not this time! :D

Awesome! I've always thought of Winterhold as a very quiet place. Almost a repose from being the Dovahkiin, if you know what I mean, and I feel that you captured that feeling wonderfully.

Kudos and Faved

She's so beautiful, I adore the way you did her hair and the staff, the background is amazing but subtle and doesn't pull your attention away from Laraniel. I like it :3

I know right. seriously if the college tried to help fix up winterhold a bit the nords would probably be a lot less hostile.

Jälleen kerran ihanaa työtä.

Rispektiä sulle jos osaat pelata kolmella hahmolla. Itelläni on kaksi ja se on jo ihan yhtä helvettiä. Joka välissä tulee vastaan tehtäviä joissa mietin että "no tää ei nyt ole semmonen homma mihin Jira ryhtyisi, mut hei, voisin tehä tän Ginaleen kanssa! Vaihdanpa savea. *toista tämä kolme miljoonaa kertaa*" Plus se että aina kun pelaan pitkän aikaa toisella niin tunnen aina huonoa omaatuntoa toista kohtaan. Otankohan mä tän liian vakavasti...

Lol, sori, spämmään taas sun kommentteja. Tykkään tosi paljon tän neidin ulkonäöstä, häntä olis kiva nähdä lisää :3
