"That day in Helgen was one of the most terrifying experiences of my life. My introduction to Skyrim. I thought I was going to die – I was certain of it. When my head was on that chopping block all I could think of was what my parents were going to do without me, and when Alduin arrived…
Those eyes. Those burning red eyes. They cut into my soul like a branding iron."
~Excerpt from one of my Skyrim fics


If you look close enough, you can see the datemark on this is mid January. I did this waaaaaaay back then, then proceeded to completely forget about it until I cleaned up my desk this week, lol.
Alduin, obviously. I just felt like getting out that awesome statue and using it to draw some Alduin goodness. So I did. :D
I guess I just wanted to see how well I went reffing from the statue (which is, needless to say, a spikey handful) and making the results in watercolour. Did I do well? :heart:

this is an awesome painting XD I love the detail and how you used your the shades of grey, and the way you created your light and dark, I'm envious it all looks really even and fluid haha there isn't any uneven or blotchy patches as there is sometimes with watercolour :D

Love it <3
