The White-Gold Tower by the-Orator The White-Gold Tower by the-Orator

Valkari was raised by Darsis for eleven years in the Great Forest, not too far from Chorrol. As she grew older she was allowed to venture through the forest and one of her favorite past times was climbing high up into the trees to gaze out at the White-Gold Tower of the Imperial City. She also tried to glimpse the Throat of the World on clear days. 

Darsis promised her that one day he would take her to the Imperial City, but I haven’t decided if he’s able to before she leaves for Skyrim

If I may, could I ask a bit into your coloring process? I'm currently working on that step for a piece that I'm doing, and could use some advice.

And you probably get asked this question a lot, but what do program do you use for drawing?

Even though I knew it was Elder Scrolls, my first thought was Sauron's Tower in the Lord of the Rings...

This reminds me of Flynn looking at Rapunzel's tower. I think it's because of the girl's outfit colors.

Shouldn't it be destroyed?...y'know, the sacking of the imperial city?

It was damaged and is supposed to be undergoing repairs during the time of Skyrim

I did not know how damaged it should be, so I simply decided against portraying it as such tbh

If you have Skyrim for PC and deactivate the borders or something like that, you can actually go to Cyrodiil and see it, lazily rendered, but it does seems to have been quite f**ked up, because it's not symmetric at all and it actually seems to have lost a big chunk at the top...Sad, isn't it?

I'll bet you that even if Darsis didn't get the chance, being Archmage of the College of Winterhold probably gives her an excuse to visit.
