Morrowind was so excotic... I really enjoyed the later two TES games, but they didn't quite have the same... I dunno, feeling? Atmosphere? Anyways, this paint is totally awesome! It's so wonderously calm and strange... o.0 Love it! :D

haha,so true...you know , I played Morrowind by the time Skyrim came out. My pc  was so bad even Oblivion did  not work. Anyways later I played both TES IV and V...but still, I can't forget that feeling, so I'm always coming back to Morrowind !:)

Playing that game was like actually exploring another world... Later TES games didn't capture that very well. Lots of features like Level Scalling, quest markers or aggressive journal (especially Oblivion with it's annoying pop-up messages) just made it feel more like a game, and less like some bigger experience.

Besides, Morrowind had just fascinating world... Exotic, alien, full of different cultures with surprises waitng around any corner. Sometimes pleasant surprises, sometimes not so much...

In my opinion, Morrowind was greater because it wasn't as "mainstream"...

Oblivion = 75% classic English fantasy, 25% classic Norse myth fantasy.
Skyrim = 25% classic English fantasy, 75% classic Norse myth fantasy.
Morrowind = 25% classic English/Norse fantasy, 75% oriental/african/etc influence.



I mean if I wanna play a game set in the English countryside, I'll just play any fantasy game ever... If I want to stumble through ashlands and swamps, chased by unique and inventive creatures, ya only have Morrowind :)

I couldn't agree more. :) Although I must admit; it were a bit annoying to save and load so much for each npc I encountered in them Daedric ruins... At lower levels, of course. But come to think of it... Perhaps that was for the best? Knowing there could be enemies lurking behind the next corner who could actually beat me(!) added a certain tension to the dungeon delving.

Yea. It's how Vivec should be done if would be made in some next gen engine. Light fit to some dirty cities. I can smell odor of channels. I love that very small amount of light reaches lower parts of city. This make it looks like some overpopulated China city with a lot of things in higher parts of city that blocks light.

Love the work. I'm a volunteer working on a fan based port of the Morrowind game into the newer Skyrim game engine. We are creating fan-based art loading screens for the game and would like your permission to include this piece of art work. Its a free game made by Elder Scrolls enthusiasts. For details you can check out our website morroblivion.com

I'm following SkyWind, I was actually considering joining the team myself (mostly for voice acting though, I make pretty good raspy Dunmer impressions) :P

I would be honored to see my work in that mod, you have my permission.

Awesome! We will need lots of voice actors so feel free to visit anytime and help out. Its pretty early days still, so long way off any sort of playable version. Thanks :)

I like the light, it actually make feel that they are under roof (while of course they are not), but also it add some feeling of "chiness" market (if you visited some you'll know what I mean), like world inside world or anthill, but more calm. Purl of water from canals... and then SUDDENLY hero appears, jumping from Plaza balcony to lowest floor XD

This art is really great. Played morrowind not too long ago you capture Vivec splendidly. What paints/tools/mediums did you use for this?
Reply
:iconswietopelk:
Swietopelk Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Ihad to use many different techniques for that ;) At first I sketched it with a pencil, then i made a B&W copy. Then, I painted on this copy with watercolours. All the characters are painted independently, and pasted into the image in Photoshop afterwards. In PS I added lots of lighting,and digitally painted many details, especially on characters. In the end, I used few photos of stone texture and water gleam (the white'ish waves), to make it more realistic.

Wow, awesome. I only use usually one medium. Like with my paintings I sketch them out then paint them. I usually complete my paintings in an hour or two. But you look like you do a lot of work. Really like your painting. I did an Assassins Creed 3 oil painting recently. I haven't had a whole lot of experience with oil. I used M. Graham walnut oil as my medium and cleaner.

That won't happen any time soon, at least not back to Vvardenfell considering it's...destroyed. :(

Though who knows, we could see mainland Morrowind more instead of just Mournhold! That'd be a whole new experience whilst still being somewhat familiar. :)
