Yunem by Heyriel Yunem by Heyriel
A gift for my dear friend ~Ilumeos :hug: -and a technique experiment.
:iconreadplz:
It's done with the hard-round brush at 100% opacity for a change, which is why the individual strokes/lines look a lot 'harder' than the way I usually paint. It was interesting to do and taught me a lot about wrist movement/painting rythm to get fur. The shoulder shape+shirt is quite horrible but otherwise I'm happy with how it came out -though I will absolutely not keep painting like this, it 'feels' too scratchy somehow D:
------------------
The character is Yunem, the male Kajiit character my friend plays in Skyrim who we totally ship with my Skyrim kitty Misha *cough*. He's a sneaky archer, so I had planned to include his bow, but there was really no way to include it in a way that didn't make it look like a weird, lopsided stick sticking out of his back. xD

:+favlove: Comments are super appreciated! :la:

This is beautiful! The character is nice as well. Kajit are awesome. Best creatures to play as, although some of the comments guards make to them in game... I put arrows through their heads.

Yeah, they piss me off so much as well (just like the children >>) xD Kahjiit are simply the best, though I gotta admit that play-style wise they are not the right race for me...should've taken a Nord :/ What kind of character do you play (skills etc)?

Archer, sneaker. I'm the distance and if it gets too hard I let Lydia or Uthgerd take the hits for me. I love the light armour, and my favorite thing to do is sit on horseback and swipe at the buttheads, or lead them to giants. Funfun. (I wonder what style that sounds like... *looks at Assassin's creed)

Haha, that sounds a lot like Yunem up there (though I don't think she ever got the idea of leading enemies to giants) xD
My char's exactly the opposite: Heavy armor, two-handed weapon (warhammer) though he's got quite good sneaking skills and some archery knowledge as well. It's rather ridiculous how bandits barely make the health-bar twitch and even dragons aren't much of a problem, but wizards are a sure death sentence; he's just that slow and clanky. :lol: I love running headlong into caves and smashing everything to bits and pieces, the rest of the time is spend sneaking through the wilderness and exploring/hunting it makes my friend go insane when I spend 6h lurking without having started/finished a single quest but collected a buttload of flowers xD

Mages are always a death-sentence. Unless you are a mage. Damn I hate mages...

But this is really fantastic. The fur is splendid, and nothing is annoyingly out of proportion. Everything is intact. :clap:

I play as a khajiit thief/assassin who dabbles a bit in destruction magic xD and my speech skill is pretty high, if only it was in real life ;w;
idk if thats the answer you were looking for lol xD

Haha, interesting, the thief/assasin playstyle seems to be the most popular one -I only ever met one person who started out with a warrior xDD
Ah yes, it would be totally cool to import some abilities from Skyrim into rl...or just import us into the game *dreamy sigh* though I probably wouldn't survive for very long.
