Champion of Boethiah sketch by psypher101 Champion of Boethiah sketch by psypher101
Mostly just a silhouette right now, but it fits the concept of the character. He's the ultimate member of the Dark Brotherhood (from Skyrim). He lurks in the shadows and kills silently with his Enchanted Daedric Bow. His off hand is casting a spell of invisibility, for added stealth. I will ad some color, mostly dark reds and muted browns, but he will mostly don black.

Did I mention he's a VAMPIRE! Hellz yeah. What better Assassin than a damn VAMPIRE!! Muahahahaha.

The inspiration here is the Nightingale armor and a blend of Daedric armor for that vampire look.

Who? The Champion? He's not even a real character. Just a custom concept I came up with after playing the game.

That's what I had in mind when I crafted it. Something that I would wear as the "end all" assassin garb. something I feel is deeply lacking from the game at the moment. They have great warrior gear, but the other class of armor is sub par, in my opinion.

meh...the warrior gear is pimp..mostly....but honestly i think the nightingale armor is one of thee best armors asthetically in the entire game! i feel like such a badass with it on..albeit a dark badass.

True. I just don't understand why Bethesda doesn't keep armor of that aesthetic quality for end game situations. I felt the Nightingale armor was too easy to acquire for how it looks. The stats are pretty great too.

meh..i mean i felt it was justifiable being the armor you attain after completing a series of quests for a faction. why not? but if you get super strong eventually anything becomes too easy..i suppose that was the predicament..didn't people complain too much in oblivion that everything leveled with you and they weren't amused with it? now bethesda went the other route to let you be powerful and people hate that too.

That's a good point. The fact that the entire world scales with the player does make it feel slightly anti-climactic at points.

I guess I was just more than a little bit disappointed with the armor for the Dark Brotherhood quests. The assassin garb is lame! Brown and Red? C'mon... What is that? Black should be their color of choice.

Easy tiger it's only a sketch! LOL. Let's just hope the finished piece is as well received.

I used to Mod Morrowind, back in the day. I think it would be pretty bad ass to see this armor in the game. Maybe an additional Daedric Quest, this would be the reward.

That's actually what I plan on doing with most of the concept pieces I'm making. Practice modelling them with clay or that polymer stuff you told me about and then, once I'm competent with that skill trying my hand at modelling them in software.

hmm thats a good idea, but i have to give you fair warning, dont set your bar too high in the beggining. Ive done the smae thing, the armours youve drawn are very complex, when i tried to sculpt for the first time i failed miserably. It took me a while before i could start again, and even then some things were quite off on his armor and proportions. I would reccomend you first start with more simple things, try simply sculpting a human body. The female one should be easy because of its smooth curves.

stole it from a game? XDDDD youre the biggest loser ive ever seen so far on the internet, and buddy, ive seen some pretty big morons. You, my friend, and your brainless opinion are as important to me as a zit on the ass of the world's smallest amoeba, because you yourself are nothing. 4 years on deviant art and your profile is as empty as your brain cavity.

For the record, i do all my own art, and if you had even the smallest experience with this sort of thing, because ive actually worked against real art thieves, you would see the signs that all this art is my own, you retarded piece of shit. First of all, the main signs of art theft is uploading pictures in a small resolution. Second is not too often a huge differentiating in style. Third is the lack of almost any creative artists comment. The list goes on, but youre too much of a dumbfuck for me to waste my time with, so go on, reply with some other comment about how im an idiot and im lying, so i can proceed to ignore it.

XD lol youre such a joke boy. I have a job already, im a designer for a browser MMO. And furthermore, i think youre REALLY confused. Im not the artist that made this particular piece which we are both commenting on, im just a friend of his.

But anyway loser, dont try to make yourself seem important, because i outclass you on levels that your putrid little consciousness cannot comprehend. Now get back to your run down apartment in the ghetto, bitch, because youre really not worth my time.

Thanks. I'm probably going to make changes as I go, especially to the lower body, but the cowl will remain largely unchanged. I want to add some extra weapons; like a a set of daggers in holster, maybe some throwing knives also. I think it also needs a pouch or satchel for poisons. This is just a sketch after all.

You have to admit. There's no better assassin than a vampire. He's already nocturnal and has perfect night vision. He can detect the living so he can track his target effortlessly. And he knows a spell of invisibility? This guy could probably destroy an entire elite ninja clan by himself. Haha.

Ooooh I really fancy this piece, for the first time In Skyrim I'm trying to be evil, completed the DB quests and all, But I can't bring myself to kill ANYONE, I really want that mail too :( But I must be the worst assassin ever, Volendrung everywur.

And the whole lot of details. I wanted to throw in, that I actually like the roughness, it adds to the whole shrouded affect. Minor details I don't think would be all that needed C:
