TES: The Old One by coupleofkooks TES: The Old One by coupleofkooks
This is my entry for this contest: fav.me/d4jzly0 Check it out - it's pretty cool and there's still a lot of time to enter :]

Possible spoilers ahead.

The Old One and Dovahkiin. Meditating. Or talking. Anyway - taking a break :]

One of my favorite characters from Skyrim (a really awesome dragon he is) and a player's character in Nightingale Armor.

Paarthurnax and Dovahkiin belong to Bethesda.

Good lord, this makes me want to open up Skyrim again...

I really love your take on TES. The grittiness and intensity (especially in your faces) is palpable. I wish the games looked like your stuff!

It proves after everything that the Dragonborn has been through, there was still a wise, old Dragon that he/she can return to for guidance on the Way of the Voice.

Wait, is Nightingale Armor a thing?  And if it is, HOW DO I OBTAIN IT?!

Didja know that technically, because they're children of Akatosh, the Dov are Lesser Aedra? It's true.

I love how Paathurnax is faded in the background! Also, the detail on the Dovakiin.

I'm glad you made this wonderful picture, and I'm glad you used the Nightingale armor! It looks so sick! I have fully Legendary Dragonscale armor, but when I'm not fighting and walking around town to town, I wear Nightingale armor with the hood off. It looks really cool when your character has reddish/brown hair, and the black looks great against the Gauldur amulet, which I made
