New Year’s Daenlyn

I’ve always felt starting the new year in the middle of winter didn’t make much sense, symbolically anyway. The trees are still barren, the bears are still hibernating, and the White Walkers have only just begun to breach the Wall. It’s not even the darkest night of the year, that was eleven days ago. January 1st is the 3AM of the Earth’s daily slog, too early and too late to signify anything.

Still, for all the crap winter gets, it’s the only time of year my room doesn’t double as a pizza oven when gaming. So fuck off, Spring. You’ll take St. Patrick’s Day and like it. I can deal with a few ice zombies if it means an extra 10 FPS. On to some news:

  • One of the mod’s VAs, Mara Lightfeather, made a Skyrim Romance Mod, yay. Now Mara, in the description you say I taught you how to mod but we both know I maybe answered like 7 or 8 of your questions tops. Truth is, I’m too lazy to teach anyone anything. At some point I would like to finish the tutorial series, however.
  • SkyComplete is a plugin that keeps track of unfinished quests and things. Which is kind of helpful for this mod in particular.
  • Viridiane has a new website. Well, it was up in November, but it’s news to me. On this site you can read excerpts of the epic fantasy novel she’s working on and ask her questions about life. In any case I recommend making this your new home page and place of worship as I have.
  • Here is Ronja Monto singing and doing Elfy things. I probably linked this previously, I don’t remember.
  • Lastly, in a previous news segment we featured a fanfiction on Rumarin. If you search the database, there’s actually a few older ones to parse through as well. Some even have adult content warnings, that’s how you know they’re good.

When Kris Isn't Home by Numeriku

Now that I’m getting over the tryptophan blues, here’s some art from Numeriku to celebrate while I sift through emails. This was inspired by memes and Matt and Lindsey‘s podcast, hence the use of Daenlyn and Y’tharil and possibly skooma. Maybe all this talk of motherhood is why I’m getting weird shit in the mail.

Vardath, Daenlyn, and Rumarin by Pinacoladamatata

Pff, wow I made this so long ago I’m almost ashamed. (almost).
I drew this after I installed 3DNPC for the first time. I had no idea what gem I’d just put into my game. I was running around with Daenyln Oakhollow and Vardath. This little group of avid Thalmor killers got wind of some kind of “thalmor spy” and I literally almost killed Rumarin! D: He had no idea how close to death he was. My dragonborn was pretty amused. Daenlyn no longer thinks he’s the most disgraceful elf to grace the province, and Vardath was there too but he’s killing a goat. I still thought he was a spy for the longest time, still a tad suspicious. But the dragonborn and Rumarin are best friends now. Vardath still tries to kill him sometimes, but I sent him on a “vacation”…

Here’s some fan art that mixes in three of the more popular male followers. It’s great. So if you like making love at midnight and getting caught in the rain, I suggest you visit the site below, ain’t no passing craze.

Daenlyn and Mithril by Numeriku

Daenlyn Mithril Numeriku

Here’s a fun screenshot of Daenlyn and Mithril from Numeriku.  I assume this is the part in the Disney film where the little fairy gets swept up in a dustpan and starts making these adorable little sneezing noises, causing Daenlyn to pause and look around before shrugging his shoulders and emptying the contents into the trash.

Fan Art – Daenlyn and Avishi by Mouse

Finally. I finally finished this picture. I posted a WIP of this on the 25th of June. It’s now the 25th of July. Good GOD I am seriously out of practice when it comes to completing digital illustrations in a timely manner. I’ve been working on this so long it was driving me crazing. I was actually starting to resent these two characters and I was talking about them behind their backs. “Look at them. The furtive glances. The sexual tension. Makes me sick. HEY! Just bone each other already!” Except that will never happen, because I don’t draw porn for free. Sorry, sweethearts.

This image is huge. Just putting out a warning for those with slow connections.

It’s Daenlyn Oakhollow again. This time however relaxing in the shade of a wooded glen with my Redguard Dragonborn, Avishi. She has fallen for his devilish charms, developing feelings of love for him. Their relationship is blooming rather nicely. She’ll probably take him as a lover first, rather then marrying him out right. Mostly because she’s to much of a whimp to propose, and also she has a sneaking suspicion he’s hiding things. She was extremely upset when she learned he willingly gambled his friend Mithril away. She values friendship so you can imagine the overwhelming disappointment, and the desire to kick his nuts in, lasted for quite awhile. Don’t worry, though. Things are on the up and up between them. Now it’s just a matter of finding a tank who won’t be offended by the sight of two adults making love in a tree. *ponders*

I had a lot of trouble drawing Avishi. I wanted her to have certain special facial features, and to be honest, I’ve never drawn anyone with Indian ethnicity before. It was a very educational and entertaining experience! What wasn’t entertaining was drawing her armor. I currently have her in Demon Hunter Armor by Jojjo and what you see in this image is the simplified version of a highly detailed armor mod. I probably took more time working on Avishi then I did the rest of the image. I have no one to blame, but myself. I put her in the armor, after all.

Daenlyn was easy, though. I had drawn him in his armor before so recreating it was a breeze. I altered his facial features a tiny bit, his previous incarnation didn’t feel “Skyrim Elven” enough to me. If that makes any sense at all. xD

Even though I complained I still had a lot of fun working on this piece. I streamed coloring this image a few times over on Ustream. I only ever use this account for art, and they don’t really save past broadcasts which is unfortunate. Anyone who is interested in watching can follow along and chat me up if they want the next time I stream some art. I also listened to a lot of Dave Matthews Band during the creation of this image. Their music tends to put me into a fay mood, filling me with wonderful romantic feelings. Very inspirational work.
