Skyrim-Battle in the snow by topcat-sama Skyrim-Battle in the snow by topcat-sama
So this is my first commission :iconranranruuplz: Behold le Khajit of the Skyrim variety. It seems once again I've drawn another character associated with a game I've never played before (I've never played Skyrim and I never will becuz of the large amount of time a person seems to need to invest :iconscaredplz:).
The person who requested this was very specific with what they wanted, their kahjit (they sent me pictures) was to be in an "assassians pose" and having a "full bodied straight-on view". Obviousy I changed some things... (but I made sure they were okay first ^_^). Normally, I try avoid drawing anything associated the furry fandom but since they were my first ever commission I figured I had to make an exception >_>. Also drawing/painting fur is quite fun ^0^

I see artists on this website with amazing art of kajjit and argonians. But then i look at myself and realize that i cant even draw a cat. How the heck is this masterpiece possible?

10/10

Nordic armor, but only Steel swords?  Well, at least he's dual-wielding.  I see the wind there, too, so he's probably doing Elemental Fury.  With the right perks, this kind of character can shred an Ancient dragon in a matter of seconds.

Great piece with masterful use of colors to indicate an environment of cold.

Beautiful! The detailing and color work are amazing! You got the Khajit down really well for never having played the game ;).  There looks to be an overlaying texture on the whole thing which sorta flattens it out and makes the Kahjit look to be on the same plane as the backround. Detail/texture should lessen the further back something is in an image.

:icontopcat-sama:
topcat-sama Featured By Owner May 25, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah, I see thank you ^_^ I did use varying texture solely on the Khajit. However, when I was finalizing the picture I did use a texture on the background and the Khajit to add more detail to the picture. I didn't think that it had the effect of flattening the image as a whole :o  I am more careful with how I use textures now but you're explanation definitely clears things up ;)

Wouldent most assassins be a bit more stealthy ? If your going to kill someone for money you dont want to be out in the open waving your swords about. But maybe some assassins do that i suppose. Also is he standing in front of ice or something because some of the things seem to overlap it also seems a bit blurry i guess because if you look at the legs it looks like you got something and just dragged it to make it look like that. I dont know if these are intentional. The branches beneath the left sword look as though there doubled i guess and the eyes seem to be looking at the viewer while the heads not pointing in that general direction. I'm not sure if its just me but yh i'ts a good picture I like furries but i never play as the khajit or argonnians its always nore for me. This also kinda reminds me of solstheim. Might be just me though

I see you're point, but at some point the assassin needs to come out in order to slay their target right? Also, in Skyrim it seemed that the "assassins pose" was a battle stance (at least that what it looked like :XD:). So, it made the most sense for the Khajiit to be amidst battle. And yeah, I meant for the background to have ice and snow. At the front of the legs I was trying to make it look like snow was being kicked up to give this picture movement ^^;

tonystona Featured By Owner May 30, 2013
oh so thats what it was and yes assasins need to come out of the shadows but in my opinion wouldent the best assassin be able to just kill their opponent from a distance with a well placed shot to the head and be gone by the time the guards appear ? I find that the same with the thieves guild they are not supposed to kill targets yet train with weapons i know they need to defend their home but every time i go on a thieving mission i just use a bunch of invisibility potions and my stealth to get through a mission. In and out before no one even knows your their. Also what kind of armor do you have him in or did you do it yourself because it looks more like armor that you use in battle not while sneaking around while hunting your mark ?

Again, very good points. Actually, if it helps and I did forget to put this in the artist comments ^^; my commissioner wanted their Khajiit to have "Sky-forge swords" and "Nordic battle Armour". So, logically, a Khajiit with swords should be in close combat.

yh i guess that does make sense hmm maybe its just me but skyforged things never held much appeal i prefer making glass or dragonscale. My character however is more of a all types. Of course on my playthough when you get introduced to the dark brotherhood i killed the chick who was their leading thinking that was what i was supposed to do. I also really dont like them for trying to kill me in morrowind directly after installing the add-ons. Also did you have a specific location in mind while drawing it ? like did you see a screenshot or do it winter due to the fact most of skyrim has snow and ice ?

The latter, I just googled Skyrim to get a general idea of the landscapes and saw that most of them had looked winterish.
