Skyrim Sketches by the-Orator Skyrim Sketches by the-Orator
Just some sketches from my sketchbooks, so excuse the messiness.

I wasn't initially very excited about Skyrim. It wasn't a video game I was following (I was too busy bouncing off the walls waiting for AC: Revelations) but then I saw the live action trailer on TV in late December. I thought it looked pretty cool. Then I saw the massive collector's edition at Best Buy and decided I wanted it XD
I ordered it off of Amazon for a good price and started to play it when I got home from my vacation (THE ART BOOK IS SO PRETTY) I started playing this game with out knowing ANYTHING about it, AT ALL (I never played Oblivion but I played Morrowind forever ago) and the only trailer I had ever seen was the one on TV.

And now....
I'm in love with this game, so much XD It is closely following behind the Assassin's Creed franchise for my favorite VG.

Also!
WHY CAN'T I MARRY YOU, BRYNJOLF?!?!?! D:
and I'm not good at drawing Argonians and Khajiit

I serioulsy love this. your style is amazing. how can i not fav this?!

I did the same thing. Skyrim came pre-installed when I got my xbox but I never knew what it was really about. So I played it a little and fell in love RIGHT AWAY. Now I'm hooked and I can't stop playing it. But I'm also mad that I CAN'T MARRY BRYNJOLF!!! AND plus the fact that he has virtually no other dialouge than that "sorry lass" crap. :I
.........but you still have to love him. <3

I don't know anything about this video game, just so you know. I favorited this because of how good it is. It's like a model sheet.

I have not written any Skyrim fanfiction and I'm not personally very interested in Fanfics :/
but I'm glad you're fond my character :)
I wouldn't mind doing some quick comics in the future when I have more time

im jealous on how well you can draw argonians and khajiits..
If i stop sucking in logic and drawing humans, i would probably draw better at lizards and cats- but your stuff is pretty awesome-sauce material! :thumbsup:

I like that bow and arrow perspective.

of course, then you go do the thieves guild and he gets mad at you.

Each time I get on The bee and The Barb he's always following me, both greeting me and getting mad at me. It gets awkward sometimes.

As to why you can't marry Brynjolf: "I got things to do, I'll see you back at the guild."
There is also the option of CHEATING.

If you decide you want to fly with the pegasi again, just go get yourself killed by a giant!

(The physics engine in the game launches your character's ragdoll into the clouds at high speeds when this happens.)

Is the collectors edition still out there? I kinda been draggin my heels to buying Skyrim..since PS3 has lagging issues atm.
Anyways i totally love your style! It's very unqiue and pretty~
Does playing in 3rd person mode affect how well you play? I've seen most folks go first person in gameplay vids..

I've been playing on a PS3 and the issues aren't that bad (of course I haven't played on the PC yet so I can't really compare) Just make sure you don't mess up at the beginning of the Dawnstar quest, other wise the quest will lock and you won't get to complete it (I know, it happened to me and I had to start ALL over again :I)

The CE should still be out there, but I'm not sure, try Amazon.

And it is WAY easier to play in 1st person, 3rd person is possible but it makes this hella more difficult.

Good to know :3 I might get the pc version just for the modding and stuff~
Yep Amazon has it~ Im gonna check my local Gamestop also, might save me on shipping and stuff.
I think how I'd work it is when im searching stuff i'd go first person(since its much easier to see stuff) and for battle 3rd person..Im sure i'll find a playstyle that suits me :3
The Skyrim theme is the most addicting thing right now XD;
