TES - Disrupted Pace by Izz-noxfox TES - Disrupted Pace by Izz-noxfox
Birthday gift for *carocha (she got a pretty print :))
I tried to get the epic of the moment when the Nerevarine destroyed the heart of Lorkhan and took away the divinity of the self-made gods (yes, that's Dagoth on the cliff).

I represented the Nerevarine with an Indoril armor for I think that just fits and it's actually one of the best armors of the game. I did enjoy reproducing Wraithguard, Keening and Sunder... Sunder has a more static force, Keening is so sharp it divides and captures the energy gathered by Sunder and Wraithguard protects from the unleashed energy. Beyond the fact that Kagrenac is a tonal architect it always felt to me that the tools affect the magical energy through sound and vibrations, Sunder is similar to a bell ringer hammer and Keening disrupts the pace of the vibe...

As a great fan I really enjoyed making this piece, if my EeePC allows me to I'd like next to represent the battle of young king Wulfharth helped by the ghost of Shor to fight against the spirit of Alduin that was summoned by Orkey after he cursed the men and shortened their lifespan... There's quite a feeling of epic in this and I think it's nice to bring back this scene to wait for Skyrim... ^^

Splendid interpretation of the game's climax in both use of the three artifacts and your way of differentiating their powers, as well as your excellent use of colors to make said artifacts fit so well with the Nerevarine's depicted armor set rather than clashing with it. The energy of the picture is perfect for the scene, even down to the armor's ragged scarf flowing in the bursts of arcane power generated by striking the Heart.

Easily one of my favorite TES images to date, although my bias towards Indoril armor being used so awesomely might be factoring in somewhere (even my own Nerevarine wore it~). Good luck on future efforts, and thank you for uploading this for TES fans like myself to enjoy!

Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a great comment! As long as there will be people like you, capable of speaking rather than talking, mankind shouldn't be as hopeless as it seems sometimes :)
I am pleased to know that you like this picture. If I should redo it now I think I'd try to animate it slightly to make the depth perception confusing... it was hard to represent in 2D something I picture and feel in at least 6D in my mind. Images can be strong to represent concepts that we can easily understand, but for things going beyond visual perception, it appears to be quite limited compared to text...

Always glad to have a compliment taken well, and sorry for not checking my dA messages sooner! I'd seen this picture in the past a few times and was delighted to find the very talented artist behind it and leave you some appreciative feedback.

I would definitely love to see this scene with some sort of animation/visual distortion to represent the way Sunder and Keening release and change the tones of the Heart, and you're definitely right in that, like many aspects of Morrowind, it's a scene far more easily described than actually depicted (although you already managed to do so quite well).

Anyway, I hope you find the inspiration to make use of such a great idea involving visual effects and appreciate the time taken to discuss this fantastic piece of art with me. c:

Sorry for replying so lately, I've been out of Internet!

I tend to think that holograms would surely be a great way to illustrate mythic events of the Elder Scrolls as they would add depth and the image would be shifting according to the angle of view. It would be so cool... But some animation would surely be easier.
Currently I'm working on a design for a star map indicating the position of Nirn, Oblivion planes, Divines, Aetherius, etc. That's also the kind of thing slightly delicate to represent in 2D only but 3D would give me some horrible headache XD
