Vex by Isriana Vex by Isriana
"You need training in lockpicking? All right, but if you get arrested don't blame it on me."

I just wanted to make a portrait of one of my favorite members of Thieves Guild, Vex. She is a senior member, master at lockpicking, somewhat snarky, resentful and suspicious towards others, and altogether a badass chick. :D
My second character Bron Martes is obviously all over her - or would be if he could. Really, I've been looking for a "partner in crime" for my thief-Dovahkiin some time now, and found none that I'd like more than Vex. Everyone who would be a good match for him seems to be a member of Thieves Guild - and like you know they are all off limits. So, I'm going to say this only once on behalf of my Imperial thief Bron:
Y U NO MARRIABLE, VEX?! :iconcryforeverplz:

Now that I got that out of my system I'm going to try to find the console commands to make her available as a follower. And marriable. :movingon:

YAY! I was starting feel like I was the only person who liked Vex and didn't want her to die!!

Somehow I never pictured her to be super old, just as having white hair. Some characters have weird hair after all.

The fact that nobody in the Thieves Guild is available as a companion/marriable is a constant source of annoyance for me. SO many good NPCs going to waste... :/

In retrospect, wouldn't that be weird, though?

Well done! You captured her snarky expression perfectly! (I think she's rather tsundere, I think she has a soft side, but Bron will have to force it out of her...) hmm  Because Delvin Mallory apparently can't... *reads note to Delvin about bathing in the lake on the table*

Firstly: There is soooooo much of your art I want to favourite/comment on but there is so MUCH amazing art that I'd be there for a while, put mildly. Sorry, I'm lazy.

Secondly: Vex is indeed a badass chick! And my knowledge of the two (which isn't altogether 'expansive') has caused me to ship Vex with Bron so hard! Especially after seeing your piece 'Everything is a Contest'! I literally walk past Vex & associate her with Bron subconsciously.

Thirdly: You've captured her just so. I love the arrogance in the way she leans against the wall & holds the lockpick. I love the way you've designed her hair (because what are chances that everyone with the same hair setting will have the same hair type?), with the visible softness and wave. Simply beautiful! I love me some arrogant thieves.

I used to see Vex as a fellow thief, comrade and even a friend. But for some reason I've found myself wishing she was marriable, and I think I've somehow put myself in the same boat as Bron. :I

How come Karliah gets to have Gallus and no one else can be together with one another

My question exactly. :tantrum:

It is like tying a carrot to a stick and holding it in front of a horse...
