My first ESO fanart, the Nightmare Courser

I've been drawing for a few years and last year I started working with pens/ink. Recently I've met some friends on the game who helped encourage me to post this one on the forums and see how well it's received by the art community and fan base of ESO.

I decided to draw the Nightmare Courser because I liked the night time theme and somber tone of the style of art that was used in designing the mount for ESO.

I hope you all enjoy it, I just scanned it the other day, so I'll post it below.

Done with pens/markers/ink on blue-grey toned paper.

    Fadeel!!!

    ('cause that's how I justified having him)

    Love your work!

    Broken Branch Toothmaul - goblin (for my goblin characters, I use either orsimer or bosmer templates) Templar, member of the Order Draconis and persistently unskilled pickpocket
    Mol gro Durga - Orsimer Socerer/Battlemage who died the first time when the Nibenay Valley chapterhouse of the Order Draconis was destroyed, then went back to Cold Harbor to rescue his second/partner who was still captive. He overestimated his resistance to the hopelessness of Oblivion, about to give up, and looked up to see the golden glow of atherius surrounding a beautiful young woman who extended her hand to him and said "I can help you". He carried Fianna Kingsley out of Cold Harbor on his shoulder. He carried Alvard Stower under one arm. He also irritated the Prophet who had intended the portal for only Mol and Lyris.

    @ZOS_JaredCarr , @ZOS_JessicaFolsom and @ZOS_GinaBruno featured piece on ESO Live? Or maybe @Antoinette57 has more ESO fan art that could be featured?

    I really like your art.

    I do fanfic, err... I should probably call it gamefic when it's about ESO

    Many years ago (and he doesn't like it when you ask just how long ago) an altmer named Akiro Caemaire began his studies as a sorcerer. In that time he "met" and made an arrangement with a particular daedric entity who agreed to function as a mount.

    Thing is, they don't get along. More than once this terrifying oblivion steed has turned too late or simply leapt off a cliff leaving his erstwhile rider to hastily use his magic to save himself. Partly in retaliation, Akiro started calling his mount "Hubert".

    Meanwhile a relatively recent member of the Order of the Dragon, one Broken Branch Toothmaul (any completionist with an AD character ought to know that tribe), really admires this amazing steed and thinks that of course Akiro calls him "Hubert" as it's the goblin way to name something with a poor descriptor to fool the fates when someone/something really is wonderful. And she can "just tell" that he has a sweet tooth, and what do you offer an amazing magical horse with a sweet tooth?

    Moonsugar, of course.

    Yes I have shared it on Twitter! As well as my newest project, that's taking waaaay to long to complete, haha. Will continue to post my pieces on the forums, thank you for the encouragement. Will look into doing a guar, I think they're adorable :)

    What an awesome drawing! I love it! You remind me I should spend more time drawing myself. Since I finished my uni and started working I have stopped drawing and that's a shame. Thanks for the inspo!
