His eyes gleam red, his heart will never thaw.
Mark well these words, you quaking babes.
Blood on the water follows Captain Velehk Sain."
Did I mention I love this random character in Skyrim?
Inspired by the book elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Pi….
Of course we all know he's not as fearsome as the book want you to believe.
But after turning him into something cute and cuddly I thought I should redeem his character with something that kinda fits the book.
Now you see why I needed a bigger canvas. There was so much to paint. I couldn't have done it well on the 'regular' size.
I struggled with the water (or should I call it blood? ).
And it's the first time I've actually made a ship. I wanted it to look scary and Daedric-ish, so I based some of the shapes of the ship on the structures I've seen in Oblivion.
I hope you guys can recognize what he's holding in his hand as a heart... OTL
I made the heart and blood glowing to represent life energy.
Cheers to Bethesda for making awesome random characters in their Elder Scrolls games.
I hope to see more of Velehk. But that will probably never happen.
No pirate adventures with a Dremora for me. :C
I hope they keep making awesome/funny Dremora (or other Daedra) characters.
Materials: Acrylic paint on canvas. 60x90 cm.
Time: About a week
Character belongs to Bethesda.
Painting belongs to me
EDIT- I removed the mature warning for now. I want people to see this when it's a thumbnail too. If it really is too scary and bloody I'll put it back on.
More art by me:
1) The "Heart" in His Left Hand
-In the description, it is stated that the organ he is holding is a heart. It may just be me, but I do not see a heart. Personally, I am having trouble determining what it is--despite the description, because (as I've said), it doesn't look like a heart. I do believe you should improve on detail.
2) The Boat
-Something about the boat seems unrealistic to me. It may be the over-sized stern that bugs me, especially when you take into fact that a stern on a boat like that in real life would be about half of this stern's size.
These things could just be me, but I recommend taking this ideas into consideration. Other than that, the art is exellent.
Thank you for taking the time to read my critique and have a good day.
or an 80's movie poster if you catch my meaning.
capital job. =3
btw, you know what they SHOULD have done with Velehk?
after releasing him they could have made him into a summon
to fight for you (120 secs tops)
OMG IT LOOKS LIKE THE COVER OF A MOVIE FROM THE 50'S XD
I have nothing constructive to add. Just WOW! I'm glad to see I'm not the only one fond of Daedra, and Dremora in particular!
Your work is one of most detailed paintings. °o°
I think this picture would be awesome as the cover on an heavy metal album.
lol That would be awesome. I always thought Dremora have good voices for a metal band.
You are so talented, you know that? This must've taken you AGES to paint. It's amazing!
I agree with the commenter below. It reminds me of those really cool, old-school fantasy and science fiction book covers. This really does belong on the
cover of a book.
I'm still sad that I don't remember this character. I wonder if there's a possibility that I missed him. In any case, I need to go looking for him, just in case ...
I thought it was going to take much longer than a week. But it seems that I am magical.
I guess it would work great as a cover. Personally it reminded me of an old movie poster. Heh heh. Blood on the Water, coming to theaters soon. IF ONLY! lol
It's quite possible you missed him. I believe the quest doesn't even show up in the journal. You'll have to go under the Winterhold college in the Midden dark and find the Daedric gauntlet. There should be a table with a journal and a key next to it. The key opens a chest in the library of the college (but you can also lockpick it) and in it are 4 rings. Place the rings on the Daedric gauntlet and he will appear.
Not much really happens in the quest, but I thought he was fun. He seemed like a very interesting and cool character, but he's mostly shrouded in mystery. Which is a shame. So it's up to imagination.
I just had to include the 2 moons. It also worked really nice for the composition.
I first just sketched those two in the background like that, because it looked nice. Then I was all like... "But can they actually have that position?" So I started Skyrim and watched the nightsky for many nights to see the positions until this one showed up. I have no life.
