The air was frigid and the water was still

Testing new technique. And trying to capture atmosphere of the cold morning in the swamp.

Story behind this? My necromancer, Yakone, used to practice her art in the swamp for few years to avoid people finding out about it. She found herself a half-ruined cottage quite far from Morthal and used to go there every few days. At first it was hard for her to go out before the dawn and venture through the deadly swamps, but after some time she got used to it and actually began to like these trips. The only thing she hated, was the cold - frigid water and chilling, humid air. Even if born in Skyrim and used to local weather, she is no Nord and all this cold actually bothers her.

Sometimes I dig through files in the folder with my artwork, and I seriously ask myself what the fuck is wrong with me.
And the last one… I have no idea what made this site think, that I would like that .___.

I just found a photo of the nacklace which I did as a birthday gift a year ago. I think I never actually posted it - I often forget to post, or even to make photos or scans of gifts for other people, because it’s always so important for me to keep them secret. Theme of this one was blood - that’s why I used hematite, garnets and red beadles)

Whatever makes you happy

Recently I realised that I almost never draw Rayhe happy or at least not grumpy/suffering. I mean, I have plenty of sketches with him, smiling and all, but I almost never upload them anywhere. So I decided to paint him during something that really makes him happy, something less dark and painful. I think I nailed it.

A small painting on postcard format, inspired by Kingdoms of Amalur:Reckoning. I’ll never get over how beautiful this game is, how great are the designs of the world, races, clothes, armor, weaponry… practically everything. And how delightfully EA killed this game. It’s the main reason why I probably won’t really play Inquisition.

Experimenting with my style and new tools.

All of these are watercolour paintings on postcard format. The first one was done with fineliner, which was supposed to be waterproof but gave me an interesting bleeding effect instead (I like it on the clothes, but not on the mask though :/ ), the second one is embellished with silver acrylic paint. The third one, a troll from scandinavian legends, was done just with watercolours.

I just realised that despite my obsession with house Telvanni I never drew anything connected with them. And decided to do so immediately.

Learning new technique - fineliners. I always hated them, so it’s quite a challenge)

Trying to learn some typography or at least… you know, making background for poems and stuff.
