Adventures in Cyrodiil via Skyblivion alpha. This is not playable and I have nothing to do with the development, so please don’t bother me about anything like that!

I would love to see a release of this as a “radiant sandbox” with only radiant quests enabled. I think with a little duct tape this could be pretty enjoyable to play like that, with only radiant type quests. Just a thought.

You can see these screens in their full resolution over here, on imgur.

Lorkhan is one of the few gods that is recognized, but not necessarily worshiped, by almost every Tamrielic culture, but whether he is an Aedra, a Daedra, or neither remains a mystery. He has many names, but they all refer to the same entity. 

Lorkhan was responsible for the creation of Mundus, the mortal plane, but not every culture celebrates this event. Most races of Mer revile Lorkhan and view mortality as a curse, while most races of men revere him and celebrate it.

My work for elderscrolls illustration challenge. Nerevarine’s nightmare.
“I dreamed that a tall figure with a golden mask spoke to me, but I understood not a word. He smiled, and seemed pleasant, but when he reached to touch me, it terrified me, and I tried to escape, but I couldn’t move. I tried to cry out, but I couldn’t make a sound. The figure kept smiling and talking, but I felt sure he was trying to cast some sort of spell on me. When I woke, I couldn’t recall how the dream ended.”

  • me: *playing ESO*
  • mom: why do you like to pretend like you are having an adventure? Go have one yourself!
  • me: ...yes well just let me become a dark elf nightblade and fight for the good of the bigger purpose instead of being a slave to soul crushing capitalism keeping us as unpaid laborers, our only reward to remain alive in this frightening world, yet we're so blinded we cannot see it even if it is in front of us
  • mom: when was the last time you did a push up?

Few months ago I was sitting in my room drinking tea and lazily scrolling my feed and S U D D E N L Y

found myself composing a challenge based on TES Lore

Firstly the Elder Scrolls Illustration Challenge was made just for me and my followers on vk.com but then I came up with the idea to translate it to English (mostly because some people on tumblr got interested in it). I apologize for any mistakes I could make (I’m from Russia so my English is quite imperfect).

So here is the list. You’re free to use it. You can use the tag #elderscrolls_illustration_challenge to share your work with the participants (I also would love to reblog some of your artworks as the creator of the challenge, if you don’t mind).

You can use any technique, draw in any style you like. The only thing I (and I guess the participants too) disapprove is plagiarism of any sort. I also recommend you not to use any screenshots for the backgrounds – that’s a little bit unfair, even though it’s still a challenge, not a contest.

You also could notice that some paragraphs have two, three or even four themes: that means that you can choose one. Or you can draw them all – it’s up to you. You can skip any theme you don’t like. In fact there are 31 themes, not 20, but the challenge is actually completed for you if you draw 20 chosen. But of course you can draw them all if you want. Originally we decided to draw one theme a week but It’s ok to spend more time (or less).

Wish you a good luck!

Hope to see your awesome art soon C:

I already know not to use watercolor on multimedia paper, but I also just make use of what I have.
Local art shop closed, OfficeMax, or depot, or whatever tf we have in town, only carries smooth pads, and I haven’t gotten around to ordering a huge watercolor pad online.
I really should just start drawing digitally.
The monochrome images were run through a few LineCamera filters and edits.
