After the small dissappointment (aka Oblivion) and the fact that my computer is a bit old I was a bit hesistant to try Skyrim. Sometime around March I decided to buy it anyway. And hey, it's pretty good. I like the new character designs, elves look like elves, the beast races are nifty and you can ever separate the human races from each other.

My character, Aryarie is a sneaky archer and Lydia (<3) is her loyal meatshield. The whole team also includes Meeko and Barbas (the latter with a mod which makes him much more bearable) and two horses.

Your character is beautiful!

And with the mod for Barbas: does it address the thing where he's always right up on you, pushing you around while you're trying to do things? Because that is VERY ANNOYING! (I also usually play snipers, and having him randomly bump me to the side while I'm trying to line up a shot sucks.) It's a real bummer that he does that, because he's a great help in combat!

Wonderful drawing! Grasps. Also it becomes terribly curious that they saw there, in the distance. Still you have very beautiful background in drawing. ( I am sorry for my awful English. )

Thank you!
Actually that's an easy question - I used a screenshot from the game as a reference and the Pride of Tel Vos (a shipwreck) is not too far away to their left. Then again maybe I shouldn't have said that, now the mystery is ruined. D:

Thanks, glad you like it! I'd love to do more of this kind of pieces but the armors are a bit of a chore. I'd like to get the details right. : )

I've got an Altmer too (but mine is male) and always have Lydia following him around too:) TES Elves are the best.
Really nice pic!^^

They are. Not as shiny and perfect as the elves in, for example, Tolkien's fantasy world. It's nice how much they differ from humans, makes them less boring. ^^

Yes my fellow Finn, you should. :) They're cool, lanky sprinters (but I think the speed bonus is just like 8% or something). In any case the coward in me approves whole-heartedly. : p

This is stunning. The characters and background are amazing! I applaud you on the background more because i find them more difficult.

Also, i love the Altmer! My current character (which is probably like my 378th or something) is an Altmer and im in love with him! He's the best!

My backgrounds tend to be hit-or-miss - sometimes I just can't get anything done and sometimes it couldn't be easier. This bg was very quick to do so I guess I shouldn't complain, but I feel my painting technique is a tad clumsy. ^^;

Heh, how many hours have you played? : D I've got just two characters, a dunmer guy and this one.

I still find Oblivion a little better but by the nine its addicting!

Thanks! Lately I've been painting a lot of watery scenes, even though I haven't figured out a good technique for it just yet. I just kind of stumble around like an idiot, trying to figure out what works. : p So yeah, glad you like it.
