A New Beginning by Chiakiro A New Beginning by Chiakiro
I never knew deers were such a pain to draw... :stare:

Edit: This has nothing to do with the lifealope or Fantasia 2000 or anything for that matter. I hadn't seen them before drawing this. If this was inspired by something, it was Okami. c:

I know it isn't but this reminds me of World of Warcraft in the Mount Hyjal area. The questline of the zone is about the mountain burning and balance needing to be restored, if I'm remembering correctly, it's been a few years since I did those quests. Malorne is a demigod who has dominion over nature.

Completely off topic but still, this is pretty awesome.

This is so lovely. The White Stag can symbolize many things. I love the cool green mistiness of the landscape. It makes me think a bit of some of the Chinese landscape paintings I've seen. Congrats on the DD!

This actually made me think of a white stag you hunt in Skyrim for a quest. It kinda glowed in a similar fashion, and it was literally just an elk model with white fur. Kind of an anti-climactic hunt for me, though. I was a stealth archer and took him out in one shot from a distance. :hmm:

Anyway I really like this. It's like a spirit of the forest, and brings life wherever it goes. Looks like it has its work cut out for it in this case.

Hah, well, it's not as majestic and awesome as it sounds. As a side-quest, it's not even all that great. Now if you want an awesome side-quest adventure, I suggest Lost To The Ages. That was fun, even for me, someone who's played the game a hell of a lot. (I actually hadn't found this quest on any of my previous playthroughs, which is promising. It means you're just about guaranteed to find something new to do each time you replay the game. It also makes it pretty damn impossible to do everything in the game on one character.)

I will look into them both! I love all the different things you can do.. I played tag with a bunch of kids in Solitude which I thought was funny you could do..

Though I will say I don't like Ulfrich or however you spell his name :/ he just seems intolerant

:icondragonslover1:
DragonsLover1 Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2014
Ulfric, yeah. My first time playing I wasn't paying attention during the part where you pick to side with the Empire or the Stormcloaks, so I accidentally sided with the Stormcloaks. And I hated it. I turned from them at the first opportunity and joined the Imperials instead.
Reply
:iconsinnibelle:
Sinnibelle Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah I hear you!! My sister said she liked the Stormcloaks so I kinda started on that path but I am Argonian. And I went to their city and everyone hates you if you aren't nord and they were really negative and I was really disappointed. They talked about freeing skyrim.. but I think they only cared about the Nords. The Imperials don't seem so bad.
Reply
:icondragonslover1:
DragonsLover1 Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2014
Yeah the Imperials are all about community and they're defending their empire against a bunch of uprisings. The Stormcloaks are bigots who want everything except the Nords to vacate Skyrim, and whose only positive feature is the fact that they want Talos to remain one of the Nine Divines, which I agree with.

Basically the Imperials made the best decisions they could during a war to prevent massive death and destruction, and the Nords are instead focusing on the results of this instead of the reasons why. If they wanted to separate from the Empire so bad, they could've started negotiations instead of, ya know, murdering their king and starting a rebellion.

In my opinion, the Stormcloaks are idiots.
