Cevenor Dragonborn by ariakitty Cevenor Dragonborn by ariakitty
This is my entry for the Cevenor fanart contest =SlayerSyrena is holding! :D This is her Bosmer/Vampire Lord/Assassin character, who you probably recognize from her awesome Skyrim comics.

I tried something new with this. I used grey markers for shading and then I did a color overlay in photoshop. I was hoping it would add a neat texture, and it kind of did, but it wasn't quite what I had expected. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out anyway, even if the effect was different than what I was hoping for. :3

Very nice! I absolutely love the shades of orange and yellow you used here, and the details on the vampire armor are fantastic~

Hey! Congratulations on winning third place in the CFC!

I love this picture so much! The level of detail you went to on his Royal Vampire Armor is very impressive (it adds to the 'eye candy' look of the illustration) and I just love how you drew his face and hair. He's adorable but also very cool looking here! The color palette is beautiful and I love how his 'dragon spirit' is hovering above him (showing that he is indeed, Dragonborn). I love this SO much. Thank you for making this beautiful illustration of Cevenor! :love:

Thank you! <3 I am so glad you like this picture because I really enjoyed working on it. Cevenor has a great design and he was fun to draw! I couldn't decide what armor to draw him in, but the Royal Vampire Armor looked like it would be fun and challenging to draw. :3

And you're welcome! I want to draw him again someday. X3

Great work on this. I'm really loving the details you put in his armor. And the addition of the dragon is nice too. (I'm assuming it's a form of his Dragon Aspect shout?) Anyway, it looks nice.
And congrats on winning 3rd place. :D

Thank you! :)
The dragon was meant to symbolize his dragon soul/spirit, I had originally meant for it to be an actual dragon, but it took away from Cevenor so I changed it. XD

I love this pic so much!

Cevenor looks so adorable in this pic. (Maybe too adorable. He's definitely looking a bit young.) But I think you captured the character very well.

The armor looks amazing. I'm in awe of the little details you included. I like that you didn't skimp on things like the wrinkles of his pants or the buckles on his boots.

And the dragon! Omg, I just love the dragon in the background. It's gorgeous! I love how it represents his dragon blood, but it doesn't detract Cevenor as the main part of the piece. It's very hard to include an extra character without that character stealing the spotlight. I think you were very innovative with this piece while keeping true to the theme of the contest. =D

Thank you for the thoughtful comments! <3 I'm really glad you like this pic! :D

I'm so happy that you love my dragon, and that the effect I was going for was successful. X3 I had sketched out a dragon and a more detailed background but I felt like it was all really distracting, which is why I went for something a little more simple - less is more sometimes. :D

The effect is nice though, and just love clash of the warm colours and the grey <3

You wanted the markers to stand out more? Still, I saw the "tradigital" look instantly, wonderful job :)

Yeah, I was hoping they would. It's possible that I simply didn't adjust things right or use a dark enough shade of grey. I'll have to try it again sometime and see what happens. :)

I fiddle with the levels histogram to darken a sketch, might work better than the contrast settings.
