The Arch-Mage by the-Orator The Arch-Mage by the-Orator
So I finally finished this
yay~
:icondancingplz:

But yeah, here's a pitcure of Valkari (my Dovahkiin bby~) post-Aludin scare when Valkari returns to take her duties as Arch-Mage more seriously. Also Psijic Monk’s robes (minus the actual...well...robe) because they’re WAY more fabulous than the legit Arch-Mage’s robes.

Well, I think Valkari is beginning to mold into her updated design nicely, though I still struggle a bit with coloring. The style I'm using now isn't bad but its not where I want to be so slowly but surely.

I agree. The ribes you've given her here look way better than the actual garb of an Arch-Mage.

I really have no idea what the designers were thinking when they designed the AM outfit, it looks ridiculous.

They were thinking "Wouldn't it be awesome if the Arch Mage looked like a hippie blue turtle wearing a rug?"
Then they realised this would look silly, but were too lazy to come up with anything else so just left it for the modders. The fact that it would be another slap in the face for console (particularly PS3) players was just an added bonus.

Love your artwork. Have you ever considered doing a comic for your Dovahkiin based on your ingame experiences? I'd love to see that if you decide to do it.

Very nice take on the Psihic robes! It's such a pity they're not available in the game. And I like this post-story version of Valkari, a proud Nord unafraid to take up the mantle of Arch-Mage.

Valkari is a battle mage
Her main weapon is the Bow but once she gets close its fire and an axe to the face.
