The Warrior by Isriana The Warrior by Isriana
The second painting from my "three Dovahkiins" series, featuring my Nord warrior Skaila Skaran. For the record, this is the first and the last time I'm going to paint that damn Wolf Armor she's wearing. Really, I absolutely love how it looks but drawing all those swirly details nearly killed my hand. :faint: Also, in case you were wondering, it is a modded version of the said armor - I came across this beautiful retexture of the original and I simply couldn't resist installing it: [link] Oh, and before someone observant points it out, I might add that boots depicted here aren't part of the set. I just happened to stumble upon some steel plate boots with a nice carry weight boost and - since most of you know how much I love looting and carrying junk around - my warrior girl is obviously wearing them. :XD:
Still one more to go. The next painting shall be "The Thief" - I'm sure there's no surprise who's that going to be... ;P


Skaila Skaran me
my character from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

My Dovahkiin, wears full glass armor, attacks on Horseback (Shadowmare) with a glass greatsword. (Kings Fury)

Amazing work by the way :D

Have you ever tried flipping the picture horizontally? I don't at all mean to criticize, but I've found it useful as I draw and I thought maybe you don't know about it yet.

Yeah. Speaking of which have you ever tried soul trapping Alduin? I've tried, it's an impossibility BUT IMAGINE THE POWER YOU COULD WIELD!!

REACTIONS OF VARIOUS CHARACTERS:
Bron: Oooh, shiny. I want it.
Skaila: I have finally defaeted Alduin and freed all of Skyrim!...Now, what?
Laraniel: Really? I thought you'd put up more of a fight? I best go destroy this unimaginable evil now.
Erasmus: I agree with Bron's concept! Also, more popcorn!
