200 years later... by UninvitedChaos 200 years later... by UninvitedChaos
Kinda inspired by ~StyxTheMad's older Aydel design for Skyrim [link]
I just imagined him walking into a random tavern, and this sight is what meets him. XD

hnngh, perspective. I know, it sucks, and the whole composition sucks, but.. I worked with this too long already.

She probably looks waaaaaaaay too young to be...215-16? years old. But ah well, Tanya always looked younger than her age. XD lolz

Tanya me

OH GOD AND I HADN'T COMMENTED EITHER?! WTF MAN?! *Self-hit*

I thin - No, I'm CERTAIN - that would be one of the most pleasing sight to his old dunmer heart. I really can imagine his joy. =D

As for the picture itself, I just... LOVE Tanya's face. It changes from her usual kind expression from when she was younger, but it's still her. I can feel the history behind her. And I think it's one of my favourite depiction of her. =)

Your painting skills make me want to quit at life.

A nicer way to say it is... I LOVE IT. You have such a talent for it! Great capture of the light sources. It's lovely!

I love this. And no, don't worry about how she looks, elves physically age slower than humankind. The warm and cool colors added so much, and she looks like she's seen a lot. A hardened character through years of trial. The background looks great, too. Awesome atmosphere! :heart:

Coming from you, it means a lot! 8D Thank you =) I just don't like how it turned out.. I guess most artists feel like this about their finished pieces. XD.............. Nuuu, I forgot her ear piercings!! :facepalm:

Believe me, I am not content with any of my art work, because later when I look at it I see all those things that I should have improved earlier. It sucks to be artist. XD
Screw the ear piercings, still gorgeous! :D

It sure does.

I work for days on this one piece I think might change my artistic "career". And when I'm finally done, I hate the thing and wished I never wasted time on it. XD But I guess every second spent on art helps to improve :shrug:

Again, thank you so much 8D

Yeah, I hoped it would! Well, no way to avoid her changing. After all, she marries an imperial. He won't live as long as her. Neither will her children...=( I am working on a time-line for her, which I will post when I am done. I just need to discuss it with ~lordwolf89, as it is his character she actually marries. :XD:

Though to me I think Orcs having the shortest lifespan, then either the Bosmer or the Dunmer and Altmer having the longest lifespan...

I have a feeling I'll be lazy and just play my main Oblivion character again... she stumbled on a time machine or Akatosh/any other god of time put her into the future... That'll be my excuse!

I checked it up, but I can't really find anything official. One website told me Bosmer's lifespan is up to 1000 years. I have no idea if it is correct, but it suits me perfectly. Tatyana is half bosmer, which means her lifespan is roughly about 500 years.

She marries an imperial/redguard, and has 3 children. I wonder if their lifespan would be the half of Tatyana's, or even less...

I know wikipedia I once read that Dunmer's lifespan was for a 1000 years...

What would you call an imperial/redguard? My brother has a female Norguard, her father was a Nord and mother a Redguard and we combined them... like Eurasian

Yeah! I can somewhat imagine her as a bounty hunter, actually. 8D I'm working on her "life-line" at this moment. One thing is sure, she's changed drastically through the years.
