SPEEDPAINT VIDEO OF THE DRAWING PROCESS !
Trying to fix stuff right now if possible, working hard to get it all rendered all over again in one day for you guys ! xD
Some parts were terribly blurred I noticed, so it's in the remake (; I'll give a heads-upp if it's online !
www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQFXW3…



UPDATE  
I'm terribly sorry for spamming you guys your inbox with the update ;-; *hides*
Finally managed to fix the trouble with the recordings... wtf I don't know what went wrong with the first render.
I re-rendered the whole video over again  for you guys... And I simply don't want all the recorded material to go to waste T_T
 Well that was 14 bloody hours of video rendering for me for these past two days... I hate that damned recorder... really :iconlazycryplz:
I hope it is helpful in a way for all of you and shows the steps I've taken for this one, I hope it does as the rendering almost killed my Sony Vegas Pro T_T 











Pff it's done.. :iconfinallyplz:..

I really wanted to draw something for this game... I simply love the mythology in it and Alduin must be one of the most awesome dragon characters I know. I simply doodled a random dragon at first but it started to look a lot like Alduin so I scanned it in and turned it into a fan piece for Skyrim (;
I also got inspired after listening to Maluka's version of the Skyrim songs, if you don't know about them yet, go listen (:
And maybe I'm just trying to defend my title as varied artist, lol :iconlazycryheartplz:

I also wanted to see how far I could go and push myself to some limits. It also keeps me from going lazy, just like that last drawing I submitted of the Temple Of Time for the Zelda series. Again I began with only the values... simply to train myself a bit with light and such. 80% of the time spend of the drawing went into the shapes and rendering them x,D I can tell I won't be doing this too often though.

I improvised a bit on Alduin's design. I used multiple references where his design slightly differed from reference to reference, I decided to mix some elements and also throw in some of my own imagination for some parts (; 

Layers: 23
Time taken: 43 hours

Yay Skyrim art :D
I've actually watched the viedeo before I started the game but I remember thinking: well that's a cool design.
But you always say Alduins design. I found every dragon lokked kinda the same (it may be wrong I'm still not at the point where you met Alduin so...) and it hink you pushed it too far with the horns an such.
But a beautiful lightning and a awesom piece even tho I wouln't go in this armor and with this sword against any dragon ;)

This is absolutely amazing! The colors are so smooth and vivid, and the scale of the Dragonborn and Alduin create much depth in the image! I cannot get over how beautiful it is!

There's nothing quite like starting your day slaying large flying beasts that are trying to roast you alive! Remarkable rendering with so much detail that it makes me dizzy. But I'm like that anyway, I guess. :D Superb art and congratulations!
