Your welcome. Heheh, I like having multiple sides to my dragonborn as well. The side that hunts kills dragons and saves people, the side that hunts down the thalmor out of revenge (hes an altmer :P) and the side that chills with his wife at the college.

Take it you didnt kill poor parthanax?

Admittedly I haven't reached that part of the quest yet, I tend to avoid the main storyline like the plague and have my character wander off into the wilds for months at a time; I doubt her spouse even recalls being married :D

Haha, 2 of my 4 housemates who play are like that. Avoid the main quest as you say like the plague. One is level 37 I think and hasnt done any of it actually, damn good archer though.

My second character decided after the first dragon he would leave that shiz to others, and went on to other things. My main though always ends up returning home and going on quests with his spouse, perfectly healthy plan for a couple, heading into ruinins and punching ancient dragons haha.

P.s thanks for the watch

I don't think it's right to kill him, he helped the Dovahkiin after all D; *lesobs*

The Map is in Delphines room in The Sleepy Giant xD
I just took it and left lmao.

What an astonishing photogr-wait a minute, Tamriel doesn't have cameras!

A fine handcrafted work. I didn't want to have to kill Paarthurnax, but I need the blades to help me find those dragon lairs.

Stole it. Lairs never appeared on the map. :u

Apparently Dovahkiin can't read. :iconderpplz:

Thanks ^_^ Well, from bits and bobs I've read on here I suspected Paarthurnax might have to be killed at a future point, but damnit, I refuse!
Nope
Negative
Non
In a word, no!

Yeah. I kinda died a little inside when I did it. Then again, I'm now 10 shoutsmore powerful. Ugh, you see Paarthurnax? This is what you get when I have to rely on NPCs to help me find dragon powers. :iconfacepalmplz:

:) getting a good balance between the predominantly light and dark shades was one of my goals here, I've been trying, and for the most part failing in making my drawings convey more depth, but ah well.

Beautiful differentiation of shading and lines. Interesting dramatic tensions of lights. Nice feeling of surface of paper.

Incredible detail...brilliant work! Do you often use charcoal? It's a wonderful effect for this type of piece...

Thanks! And yep, I probably use charcoal more than any other tool out there, probably because it's wonderfully easy to blend on any kind of paper :)
