Frostfall by Ravien93 Frostfall by Ravien93
ANIMATED WORK IN PROGRESS is available on my blog! :)

[link]

Mainly inspired by the visuals of Game of Thrones, and Olga Kurylenko's character's design from Centurion.
I also listened to a lot of Skyrim music while painting thins hence the name.
I just wanted to paint a badass chick. ;)
I shall make a wip soon. :)
Sorry for the crappy quality of fur, no one warned me that fur is a bitch to draw.

I forgot to mention, the sword is inspired (ie I ripped off the design) by Frostmourne. :XD:

Hehe, so I'm not the only one listening to Skyrim soundtracks while drawing.
My favorite is Sovngarde, it always inspires me.
Awesome drawing, love the details.

So i take breaks from writing and browse around deviantart. Funny that you mentioned the Skyrim soundtrack because I'm literally listening to it right now. BTW I'm obsessed with this picture.

It's such a good soundtrack, Sovngarde is absolutely stunning when played quite loud with lots of bass. ;)
Every time I'm home alone I blast it. My neighbours must love me. :D
Thank you! :)

beautiful, Nordic, and entirely northern. i especially love the stark lighting on her face. it makes her skin look madly realistic. and as for the fur, i think it's really well done. actually one of the first things i noticed, and then i had the urge to pet her cloak! but you really are right, it's such a hassle to draw. XD

Yeah, the fur is extremely annoying, that's why I'm drawing another picture with a lot of it just because I like making things difficult for myself. :XD:

This is a very fine work. I recognized your inspirations, barring the Skyrim--what did you draw from with regards to that game?
