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

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your feeling! I'm very glad that you enjoy this so much :) I must admit though that I feel even more power in written description because it's hard to represent sound on a picture, and sound is such an important part of about everything important in The Elder Scrolls. Music we can't hear, tunes that transcend up to the meaning of sound as the realms lay into and over each other in an invisible symphony, a concerto of light swarming in the void that... -well, sorry, I've just finished Dawnguard, I must not let my enthusiasm go too far :D

I'll wait to see how my current mods turn out before starting to criticize Dawnguard (plus I enjoyed it mostly). Obviously I'll have to wait for Dragonborn but modding should keep me busy. I've just found a voice actor who made a brilliant interpretation of a script I wrote for a Khajiit NPC, it sounds just like one from the game, amazing! It makes me very eager to try to implement this in my mod.

I agree. There was much more freedom than developpers can give now due to performance restrictions and such. Of course it's harder to design quests if the player can just teleport away but there's always a way to make teleporting the most stupid solution, etc. I'm not saying the quest designers of Oblivion and Skyrim did bad job though, some quests were pretty amazing... but seeing the capacities of the engine now, we could do so much!
I curse myself for being so bad at programming, I'd really love to create epic quests for Skyrim.

No, I should work hard until I can be hired by Bethesda somehow and work on TES VI XD (everybody can have dreams^^)

There were some impressive ones for Morrowind and Oblivion. I recall the Kvatch Aftermath mod in which you took part in the rebuilding of the city after the sack, that was really impressive even if there were glitches. It was just a bit sad that the dialogs weren't better, with more character, depth etc. I'm not asking programmers to be great game designers and writers of course but if all the people who are skilled into something specific could unite to create a mod together... something monstrously awesome could be created! ...I'd so love to take part in such!

This summer I found the time to write some more books: a detective story in Cyrodiil with Dark Brotherhood and more (I'd like to make it a series with more stories)
[...]
The Dunmer lay dead in the middle of the room with his head soaked in a puddle of dark blood that had poured from his left ear. His hands were covered in pitch black soot, but most disturbing, two pebbles were put on his eyes. One white and one black from soot as well.
"Wow, wow, wow, what's the meaning of this crap?" Argentius frowned.
"Have you ever read Sacred Witness, by Enric Milnes?" Vento asked. [...]


...and a Morrowind story about Corprus and divinity and dawn.
[...]
He laughed and it made me shiver in terror.
"Here they call me Shor. Somewhere else they'll call me something else but do I even care about the names I'm given? Names are fit for the weak like you who cannot exist without the others to give you a label. I could call you 'grass' and you'd reduce yourself to this shape, thinking it is your new truth for you cannot stand by yourself." [...]

If you're interested to check a little the story it can be viewed here (comments are enabled too but not edition).
I plan to split the whole text in two ingame tomes. By some chance the middle is fine for a split with:
"The Empire is law!"
"The law is sacred!" Lynx answered.
And each went his way.

...I think it's like perfect time for a "to be continued" :D

This is one of the best Nerevarines I've seen. The detail is awesome, especially with keening and sunder. I also like who you managed to use the mask to match his/her facial expression instead of just covering it up. Very impressive.

I also made a short comic featuring the Nerevarine back from Akavir [link] It's very sketchy in comparison but was pleasing to imagine^^

Quite enjoy this one. I can distinctly remember this part of the game. Specifically, I'm fairly certain I decided to leap down from that cliff, dash across the bridge, and stab the Heart dead.

Definitely one of those moments that's made great because the freedom of the game allowed me to really have some fun with it.
