    Brilliant high elf one! When you’ve done the races you should try a scene. Like scouts or a battle. I plan to use one of these for my ppXD

    @Erlex: depends on how many times I restart/scratch/groove/warmed-up ;P
    @Rymguard: Yeah, I still have to think about how I’ll be tackling the other races.
    @Vlaars: Yes! You’ve read my mind! It’s totally what I was planning to do from the start! What is pp?

    @Shanku You’re sketches have single-handedly given me second thoughts about which race I want to play in ESO. I’ve never even liked the Khajit or High Elves before, and now I can see myself playing either one. The Khajit assassin captured the beastial nature of the race better than any other concept art I have seen.

    The only solution to this is to join with the others in requesting a Dunmer sketch, then I can go back to loving the dark elves too.

    When I grow up, I’m gonna be an assassin. That way I can help lots of children, just like you! – Aventus Arentino

    These are amazing. Any chance of them getting inked or colored in the future?

    I especially like what you did for the Khajiits clothing. His feet look kind of weird, though.

    Was going to estimate the time/space requirement with fraps~ If you had any sort of estimate on time.

    @Vlaars: Ah~ I see. Yeah, I love walking around in Skyrim, questing and taking pictures. XD
    @Collametta: Thanks, more to come! ;3
    @Dark-tide: Oh, who knows? Surprise, surprise!
    @Thess: Well, there’s bound to have a Dummer sketch sooner or later. However, I’m very glad/flattered that I can sway someone onto trying something new or see another perspective of things with my artwork. :D
    @maso: I’ll think about it, so far these are quick sketches… though it does end up taking a good portion of my time. I might think about cleaning up/coloring my pieces. Yeah, it’s a bit tricky. I’m really not used to drawing beast races.
    @Eliath-Debron: OOOHHH!! Thanks! I’m glad you’re liking these!
    @Phantom: Haha, their concept art/illustrators are awesome. I wish I can work there! It’d be a dream come true!
    @Erlex: Oh, hmmm. Try 1.5 hour? I don’t think I’ll ever take more than that but who knows.

    Yea, that would be a rather large fraps, and take a while to encode. Not exactly sure how fast you could speed it up either, don’t think most people would want to watch a 30 min video of someone drawing something. Would be really really fast if cut down to 5-10 minutes. Not sure how that would work out lol

    I have to admit, I don’t like the Altmer a smuch as your previous works. She looks very anime-esque and more like an elven prettygirl than a real Elder Scrolls Altmer.

    I thought the same when I saw the high elf. But I do like the Khajiit very much! Can’t wait for Bosmer and Argonian to pop up.

    Argonian Nightblade

    Argonian from Ebonheart Pact

    For some strange reason, I really liked how the Argonians and Khajiits were portrayed in Morrowind more so than in later games such as Oblivion and Skyrim in terms how they are more beast than man. Though I understand difficulty in making a game to account assets just for those two races because they were so different (like in Morrowind, they can’t wear face covered helm or boots). Though I’m sure that there are many ways to go around it in today’s technology. Sadly, I find it a tad silly to see Khajiit and Argonians to wear human-like boots and walk like them also. However, that’s just me. What do you guys think?

    —————————————

    @Trouble: Thanks! I’m glad you like them. ^^
    @Erlex: Well, there would be a lot of fast forwarding/play at (#)x speed. Well most likely… and yes, frap is ridiculously big. When my friends and I casted some StarCraft II matches, it was like 5 GB big per game or something. It was just ridiculous.
    @Rial: Yeah, that’s true. After seeing concept arts the official ESO website and the cinematic trailer. They have made the elves very human like compared to all the other previous TES game titles (like Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim). Same goes for the Wood Elves (Bosmers) too. Sadly, with my anime influence since childhood. It was very hard to break off from that. Over the past few years, I’ve been working hard to break from that trend. Nowadays, my co-workers from the previous studio I was working at felt that my art style is becoming more Korean than Japanese. But still, I’m still having a very hard to to break away from last bit anime-esque style when drawing female faces.
    @Tharapita: Aww, you too huh? :'<         Thanks for liking the Khajiit. Surprisingly lots of people like it. ;D

    ————————–

    That’s it for this week. I’ll be around through the weekend. But will post a new one sketch on Monday!
    Thank you everybody for your feedback, comments, likes, and loves. It’s been a very heartwarming week. ;’)  *sniff*

    That is awesome! I love how it resembles Tenieva or a DB argonian. Really captures the essence of the sneaking argonian
