Skyrim by xric Skyrim by xric
IT'S SKYRIM! I look forward to a few 'arrow in the knee' comments.

As always, it was drawn in Photoshop CS5 using a Wacom Bamboo Fun Graphics Tablet.

And it took about 10 and a half hours to draw.

You can see the making-of video here - [link]

you know I've always wondered how the dovahkiin survives dragon fire, you waltz right through it and it barley hurts you. Came up with idea that dovahkiin is fireproof...I once took an arrow to the knee I pulled it out and kept walking, TAKE THAT WHITERUN GUARD WHO DOESN'T SHUT UP!!!

:) Little bit of trivia: "I took an arrow in the knee" is actually Old Norse slang for he got married. Hence, why the male gets down on one knee.

This is absolutely amazing!! Is this possibly based from when you fight Alduin at The Throat of the World? Or is it just a random dragon fight?
Either way this is just amazing! The detail in the dragon's scales and just everything about it! Amazing! (:

Beautifully drawn, well done! I like the way you included the sword getting heated and changing color.

His sword's gonna get soft if he keeps fighting like that.
