    I´m glad you´re back – didn´t have a look at a bit of some new great artwork for nearly a month.

    Thanks for that illustration, it saved my mental sanity.

    I keep checking in and I am glad to see that your are going deeper and deeper into how the armor functions. It brings a realism to your past art and the new stuff.

    Awesome work! I love how you draw the Bosmer.

    Personally I’m no big fan of the way the Bosmer are often described in the lore; cannibalistic savages decorated with bones and other animal parts. I much prefer the LotR-style elven ranger.

     

    I plan to make a Bosmer Nightblade/Archer in ESO, and I will probably base him on your depiction of them :)

    @Azengard: hehe, believe it or not, I draw on paper more often than on computer…
    @Micanis: lol, just as I came back I had to leave on a trip but I’m back again. ^^
    @Marsh-Shadow: Thanks, I’m back again from the trip. XD
    @Erlex: I can, though I want to focus on something more detailed at the moment. Then maybe I would… XD who knows…
    @kaon-jai-of-argonia: lol get them to hire meeee!!! :D
    @TheEbonScroll: Thanks, I will ^^
    @neithrys-the-skylamp: LOL, I did go missing for a month doing daily painting challenges, then gone for another two weeks… hopefully I’ll be back on my toes in no time…
    @Lancearon: Thanks, I do try to keep the armor in a workable matter ;)
    @fallen-angel-rising: LOL, i wish, still much to learn~
    @Okiir: Yeah, I do like them more as one with the nature type of elf than the cannibalism part of it, though I think many of the wood elves did somewhat abandoned that part of its tradition, especially the ones that moved out of the provinces…
    @Atropos: Aye, I’ll continue to do so whenever I can ;)
    @Kago: thanks~ will try to keep improving ^^
    @Lafayette & @jj122: thanks guys! :D

    Nord Illustration – WIP – Part II

    I’m still exploring what composition would fit best… hmm 2nd take at this…
    This might take some time to figure out which composition I’ll like the most, might take a few days doing a few sketches…

    @fallen-angel-rising: Hmm might be a lot easier to see if it was 90 clockwise. But yes, keep practicing and learning! ^^

    Okay… What composition? Depends of the artists intent. If you want a dynamic battle scene, then use overstretched perspective and some contrast technique – for example, a huge panoramatic view in the middle (why not a diagonal horizont?) and a detailed zoom of something important or just expressive behind the golden section.

    Hey guys,

    Sorry for the lack of updates. Been crunching at the studio and also gotten a flu through commuting in subway rides. D:
    I seriously should take a flu vaccine or something… head’s pounding at the moment tho.

    As soon as I feel better… I’ll resume.

    @mistabang: heh, thanks, but on good days, you don’t get artistic blocks, on others however.. yeah
    @neithrys-the-skylamp: I wanted to create a piece that’s kinda like a figure/model mold or sort.. this is what I had for inspiration: ex1 ex2 ex3
    @marsh-shadow: thanks for the continuous support :)
    @megakrab & @ademus-prime: thanks guys ;D
