Black Marsh Argonians by Suzuchan Black Marsh Argonians by Suzuchan
It's been a while since I drew anything Elder Scrolls related. ANd I've actually been talking to my fellow TES addicted friend about our two Argonian characters that we have and I just had to draw them.

Remember the really scary Argonian head shot from a while back? That's the guy in front believ eit or not before he decided to turn himself into a walking pile of bone and rotting flesh. Twice-Bitten is by far one of the coolest characters I think anyone has ever come up with. It would easily take up four to five paragraphs that are about the size of Pluto to go into detail about how awesome he is. So I'll give you the short version.

He's an Argonian with a craving for power and to be something more than what he truly is. He's a contradiction within his own and while he hates people he is not against helping people either. He hates those with power yet strives to attain his own. And he's freaking smart as hell. He sealed his soul into a single gold coin after he became a lich and tossed the coin into his treasure vault filled with thousands of coins. Now if that isn't genius I don't know what is. I mean...you have to destroy the item the lich's soul is bound to in order to truly kill it...and it'd be hard as hell to find one coin out of thousands.

Anyway....the other one is El Lurasha. She's pretty, she's sweet, she's kind and she has a certain fondness for said Argonian lich even after he becomes a walking corpse. He's her hero, having gotten her out of every situation she's been into that was bad. ...Also those that were good...but we're not going into that.

I hope you guys like this. I love these two as characters and I am really proud of myself on the coloring considering this is the first time I've actually done any sort of scaley textured coloring.

I don't know if Bethesda ever thought about this, but breasts is not how lizards work. You've used excruciatingly precise detail though. I must give you credit for that. (I was only criticizing Bethesda by the way)

I should get around to characterising my long-standing Argonian rogue.
And reading up more on proper Argonian naming conventions.

.....Or kill it with a silver weapon, which is also an approved method of murdering a Lich. You just wait for its soul to come out of the corpse after you destroy that entirely(preferably by burning) and then you kill that.

I honestly didn't expect to see the TES IV design of Argonians ever again since TES V got so famous. Those are of a masterful resemblance!
I can't help asking myself which "mods" you used, though I know it's a painted picture. :D

Following this thought... right off the top of my head I can see some of the most famous custom Argonian Headsets or features thereof, the male, Twice-Bitten, looks like he's using Nivea's Argonian Skin, a male conversion of the TFF pattern, whereas the female, El Lurasha, sports the Vanilla colors, and aren't these Slof's Claws For Beasts?... Uhm, sry, can't help it. I do this with every screenshot I see, and your picture is looking so life-like, almost like a screenshot!

Definitely something for my collection.

Now, if only I'd have some free time... I'd so be play-testing the TES IV: Black Marsh beta release by now, just because of this image!
Great work! 8-)

You were right on the headset part. The male is actually from a friend of mine that he wanted me to draw him classic Black Marsh style. Or we we both thought of as what would be Black Marsh style. As to what mods other than the headset he used...I'm not sure. And I just did the claws on my own.

Thank you for the wonderful comments, though! I'm so glad you like them!

Oh, really? And I thought I was just being silly, identifying mods in a painting.
With screenshots it's simple. Either a mod was used or I won't be seeing what I see. But with a painting it can always be the artist's vision or artistic freedom instead. So I didn't expect to make any sense in doing it at all. It was just because your painting was so life-like!

You're welcome. It's my pleasure!

After they make TESO they're probably going to do a new fallout, then a new Elder Scrolls.

It's gonna be like 2017 by then lol, but black marsh would be so awesome. I like argonians, not as much as Dunmer, but I still wanna see what black marsh would look like. I imagine it being like a jungle-marsh type place where it's always dark and spooky.

About the characters: I won't say that he is a genius or even smart just because of a coin. It's kinda... obvious and mediocre :\ but I don't think I want to develope this theme: every has his own ideas of genius, mine can be too high.
About the drawimg: maaaaan, I'm sooo envy. Dat scale :iconhannaloveplz: so bootiful. Darn, I need to illustrate TES fic my sister comissioned me and now I realize I can never colour it that good, though I can tell I have much more layers you had (at shading at least). The most simple things are the most complicated at the same time =__=
I don't know if you have been studying this or it's a consequence, but still it's nice to see someone pays attention to their skin colour. I mean, I wince unwillingly when I see someone drawing argonian female with black and red scale or yellowish-green male or an orange cub, or-or-or...
So, in two few words: a worthy stocking of BlackMarsh illustration funds.
