Coldharbour WIP by Nata-eslava Coldharbour WIP by Nata-eslava
Once upon a time I was invited to take a part in a TES-oriented contest, which should be based on several in-game books. But our organizer did not come to agreement with all the contestants about the books and picked out the only one (which he wanted to illustrate himself, I dare say), showing willful disregard to other variants... So, nowadays, that contest is still in some hanging condition. Why so long intro? Because I suggested to draw inspiring by the "2920" circle; its intricate story and a great number of the characters could be used as a source of many fan-art works.

Not long ago I returned to my sketch started right after that decision as my own protest and put its colours in order. This image is still unfinished, without shadows and some details, but I cannot wait anymore and show it as it is.
I illustrate a moment in Coldharbour from the Book Four of "2920": Sotha while his journey into Oblivion with the view to make a pact with Daedric Princes.

Character is from "TES III: Morrowind" by Bethesda.
Sketched with mechanical pencil, lined and colored in Photoshop via tablet.

Восточный хардкорный стимпанк с крайней степенью лопоухости. :XD:
Когда вернусь к нему, не знаю; не хотелось бы абы как заканчивать для галочки.

Sorry for such a prolonged silence. I rarely log in dA.

This is only my own vision of Sotha, it has long since it came into my head after several returns into TES III (here I wrote why he looks in this way). As the result it turn into a certain explosive mixture of steampunk and fantasy, mostly based on fantasy.
I do not mind if you will pick up something from here. Do as you think fit. Anyway, you have absolutely different drawing style.

...The brackish water was planned initially, so I will add it later.

Love Sotha, but where is the brackish water?

I hope you don't mind, but I might attempt my own depiction of this scene, and I might barrow some elements of you picture for it. I especially like the staff, but we will see, I haven't started on it at all.
