Poser Picture ftw! :dummy:
Ralof has got to be one of the coolest characters in Skyrim; I mean how could anyone NOT join the Stormcloaks after meeting him? :giggle: No, but seriously both me and my character don't harbour a lot of love for the Thalmor and the Empire so it was the easiest choice ever to become part of Ulfric's ranks.

A big thanks goes out once again to *ripley4O77 for modeling with me. <3



:bulletblack: Skyrim and Ralof belong to Bethesda
:bulletblack: Art and Redguard character belong to ^ValaSedai

I could never get over the fact that the Empire tried to chop off my head for being in the wrong place...STORMCLOAKS FTW!
Absolutely AWESOME job!

I liked Ralof right off the bat too, though I plan to join the Stormcloaks in another file.

I guess it's because he's the first character you interact with and his down to earth personality.

soo droolworthy! i wish Ralof were a marriage prospect, my Nord ladies would snap him up in an instant! My current lady, a wood elf, Rowenna, is quite attracted too. She's also disappointed there are no wood elf marriage prospects...

you have such beautiful, detailed art! i love it!

yeah, but it's ok. And i do have a pc version of Skyrim (and both PC and xbox versions of Oblivion) but when i got it brand new it would not work on my old-ish computer. Now that i have a newer laptop (as well as the old pc) it may behave, i will have to see.

I was sorta attached to the first guy from …. OMG… Mal….something or other. you have to beat him up to get him to join you lol and I was having a tough time trying to decide between empire and stormcloaks…. i went to buy something for the empire and the voice of Fenris (Dragon Age 2) came out of the shop keeper…. oh Fenris.. how I love thee….

I also play the same character in all the Elder Scrolls games, and have made an entire back story for her! She is a dark elf so 200 years is not that old for her, and if your character is the Nerevarine she already is immortal because of the corprus making you immune to disease and age, so you can only be killed in battle or be poisoned or something.

ValaSedai Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haha yep it's easier to justify it for elves. :D
I agree, there's the possibility that the 'corprus incident' causes immortality but it's not exactly proven that immortality remains after the cure. More like a 'possibly it left that effect', so I've been skeptical and figured my character would be too and what with all the emotional scarring I bet she wouldn't have been thinking clear anyway. ^^

Great, I love how well thought out your characters back story is. And it's very nice for me to know I'm not the only one :D (Big Grin) My character probably has more back story than in-game story.

I just think it's much more fun and more immersive if the character you play has a backstory and you can act and react according to their personality and experiences. :nod:

HAHA! Truth. He was funny. Ulfric was... Ulfric. It is so hard to decide whether or not you want the Empire to win or the Stormcloak Rebels... *Imperial March starts playing*

I think my favourite, though, is Brynlof from the Thief's Guild.

And thanks for the :llama:, by the way.

Ulfric's kinda sexy in the way that you want him BECAUSE he's such an ass haha. Yeah I'm messed up. :lol:
But I know I don't like the Empire. They're evuuuhhhl! >__>

Brynjolf is awesome though! He's quite a douche too here and there but in a lovable way. :giggle:

And you're very welcome. :)

I won't lie, my personal favorite characters are definitely Babette and Paarthurnax... and though my Khajiit DB married Ysolda after all storylines were completed (funny how a KHAJIIT can ask Ysolda about KHAJIITI people), he had a HUGE crush on Astrid >.>

I like Brynjolf too, he's my bro ^^ Mercer's an ass, though. And Ulfric... I, myself, personally like him, because, like you said, he's pretty cool in his "ass" way. My character despises him, though. Interestingly enough, my character's also Ulfric's pet doggy. He does everything Ulfric says, without questioning it, SOLELY because of his hatred for the Empire. Because of that ONE Imperial bitch at the beggining who sentences you to death, he wants to see the Empire burn down to the ground. Talk about holding a grudge, lol XD

*Badass picture, BTW. The anatomy and faces are simply FLAWLESS. And I LOVE what you did to the Fur boots (that pointy foot on the in-game boot pisses me off for some reason, lol) Faved it ^^

Haha yeah it's great that one can both like and hate certain characters by on one hand having an affection for them personally but making your character hate them. Or the other way around. Ah roleplaying is wonderful. :giggle:

Thank you, glad you like the picture! :')
Yeah, some of the clothes look a bit weird ingame, I have to say I didn't even notice that about the fur boots though, I just drew them from some rather vague screenshots and it felt right doing them like this. ^^

Hakuisthebest Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, roleplaying is indeed wonderful <3
I had something similar in Oblivion, where I personally LOVE Martin, but my character wasn't initially too fond of him, they had some silly arguments over stupid things when they first met XD

About the in-game Fur Boots, lol yeah, it looks SO weird, it looks like a pixie/genie shoe or something, not kidding, pay attention to it XD

PS: YW <3
