Readiness is all by Heyriel Readiness is all by Heyriel
Violating Shakespeare quotes because I can't think of any good titles, oh dear.
My first Skyrim character Misha, back when he was fresh out of Helgen, running around with stolen Imperial Armor...ah, the good old times! Neither Elder Dragons nor Assassins to worry about, just a Kahjiit, his weapon and ALL the lootable junk. :lol:

:iconcommentplz:
Please consider leaving a comment if you have the time, it would be greatly appreciated! Is there anyone else here with an addiction to the warrior playstyle or am I alone among sneak thieves? :happybounce:

It's fun to compare this to what it looked like at the very start, way back in march 2012: [link] I was so proud of those colors and the face! It isn't perfect now either, but with something patched together over the course of a whole year, I don't see the point in dwelling on unfixed issues. It was a lengthy, very fun but at times also very frustrating process, yet I learned a lot and the print looks fucking awesome on my wall. What more could an artist want? C:

Funny I prefer Argonians for sneaky characters, and Khajiit for warriors and mages, though sneak is handy when hunting. :)

Khajiit rock heavy armour and two handy weapons better than anyone.

Skyrim is one of my favorite games still! I love the Khajit, they are my favorite race to play, especially sneaking. NICE WORK!

Funny, I have 2 siblings and all 3 of us played Skyrim.  My sister became a thief; my brother became a mage; and I became a warrior.

Yeah xD
on my first playthrough, I knew nothing about anything xD
i was a khajiit, but i scoffed at sneaking b/c i thought it was useless. i immediately joined the companions, and the only thing i owned was steel armor (heavy) and a skyforge steel greatsword.
i just loped about the countryside, smashing things with a giant sword and running away with my werewolf powers--it was great xD

That's like a Viking. That's like a freaking feline Viking. Or at least looks like one. I'm not familiar with the whole Elder Scrolls stuff. But I like Vikings. Still fucking awesome, though.

Love this :D Skyrim really lacks a LOT of detail... not saying that it doesn't have much for the kind of game it is, but we miss to create stuff like this. Great work :)

I will forever be a warrior at heart! My first play of any fantasy game is always a warrior type. Only when I'm done with that game do I explore other options.
This Khajiit looks epic. Very friendly, haha

I know that feeling! Level 43 Khajiit and I've only just started progressing down the main plot line. Trying not to have the plot spoiled by house mate who finished it ages ago.
