Close up here :thumb301297037:

Done in livestream and broken up over the course of 2 days. Thanks to everyone who came to watch this! :iconletmehugyouplz:

Okay, so a little about this piece. *Sushi-Troll challenged me last week to draw myself in Skyrim as a character. So I took a photo of myself, pulled up a bunch of refs and here's the finished result. I mostly dressed myself as I have my character dressed since I make him run around in the Thalmor robes everywhere he goes because they're just plain cool XD I use a Glass Warhammer and a bow occasionally but mostly just smash things with my hammer.

Goodness it's been years since I did a realistic style. I used to do it all the time until I discovered how fun a stylistic way of drawing was but I...am....so...proud...of...this! :iconhappytearsplz: Thanks you guys for sticking around to watch me draw oh so slowly on this XD

Anyway, self portrait from Skyrim.

Tools - GIMP and a Bamboo Fun

Thank you! As to how, blood, sweat and tears, years upon years upon hours of practice and lots of caffeine. And the chick is me btw lol It was a challenge to paint myself into the skyrim world so it's a sort of self-portrait I guess you can say. I'm very glad you like it, thank you!

Looks amazing! It is nice to see someone on horseback without heavy armor or the nightingale armor. You should do more realistic style.
