This is an illustration of a Skyrim roleplay that I've been doing since April. I roleplay as Ancano over on Tumblr, and in this picture he's traveled to Dead Crone Rock with Remi, a Forsworn Briarheart who told him of the place. He plans to study the magical properties of the stone pillars there to determine if they would be of any value to the Dominion. They finally reached their destination and now Ancano is attempting to appear like an innocent scholar to Drascua. She’s not falling for it, and she understands that the Dominion intends to eventually take her artifacts. So he’s attempting to negotiate with her. Rémi is observing their conversation and wonders why they appear to be arguing.
Drawn in Photoshop CS5. I used rock texture brushes to make the ground.
