So, over the past six months, I have been clocking Skyrim and wiping dragons off the map, in addition to doing just about every single quest and storyline I could find in the vanilla game. No surprise, this game is huge and ridiculously addictive 155 hours later and a level 81 character to show for it, not half bad Actually very bad, but I passed my exams anyway so clearly this is signal enough to start a new game Anyway, this drawing is just a little tribute to my favourites in Skyrim, namely Cicero, the battle with Alduin and the sky animations. Good heavens, the sky animations. I spent hours drooling over the moons in Oblivion and the auroras and Sovngarde were equally amazing.
...Hence this really ambitious drawing. I don't know when I started getting the urge to do more backgrounds but I'm thankful for the practice. Even if the number of filters and blending options I stack are ridiculous Weirdly enough, I think I rendered Cicero best, and had to try and tone it down because he was making Alduin and my Dragonborn look awfully plain The background was both fun and frustrating, but I think I've managed to get most of the lighting. Hit several walls, first with Alduin, then Sovngarde, and then had to scrap the fireball in her left hand because I have no clue how to do fire. Oh well, that gives me something to do next time. And now that I have actually rendered decent skies, I'm just itching to do a Mass Effect painting... maybe after my second ME3 playthrough Back to the xBox for more inspiration!
