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! :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

This is absolutely gorgeous! I love how you really got the cold and unfriendly feel of Skyrim across. :)
