Alright, last of the upload onslaught for tonight. And the first thing I've drawn in 2012. This is my primary Skyrim character, a Khajiit based on Shadowfire. I find it interesting: Shadowfire was indirectly inspired by a cat (it went like this: cat -> ferret/weasel -> wolf -> invented
kind of wolf-thing), and now it's come back to a cat character based on him. Who is also a master archer, or I'm working on that anyway. :dummy: I just named him Shadow because calling him Shadowfire felt weird for some reason. But he does use a lot of fire magic to compensate for his shortened name. = D Also the flame breath shout. I love the flame breath shout. Took a while to find the right sort of hooded robe thing for the look I wanted, and it's still not dark green, but he's a pretty good approximation of Shadowfire if he were a Khajiit. Black and gray fur, orange eyes, very narrow build (I like that you can customize the build of your characters in Skyrim) even a scar near one eye. Plus he gets to do a lot of traveling through the wilds, which is also something Shadowfire did and does a lot of. I've completed the main quest and the College of Winterhold questline with him, and now working on the Companions, though that one feels a little less suited to a stealthy archer/mage type like Shadow here xD

What I wonder is what happens to his ears when he wears that hood. They appear to flatten entirely.

Yay! love it, I'm also a Khajiit but the female Khajiit's aren't all that great at hand-to-hand combat :/

My Khajiit is named Subterfuge, 'cause it sounds cool. My old one was Sir Ga'mon the 2nd, but that one got deleted, which sucks as he had level 100 sneak, and 85-ish Pickpocket and One-Handed.

Very nice. Better than I could do even if I'm motivated.
