WIP Sulking Dovahkiin, Malum Securus by Ga-Maleven WIP Sulking Dovahkiin, Malum Securus by Ga-Maleven
My dovahkiin, Malum Securus, from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Bethesda)
Okay, so I need help thinking of a background for this image. I can't decide on whether I want a sky in the background, with maybe mountains, or maybe an ancient Nordic ruin, or what. You guys have any ideas?
It supposed to be a little sad or something, like he's thinking and he feels under appreciated. So, any ideas would be appreciated! :)

That's just creepy. My Dovahkiin, Marduk Shadow-Scales, looks almost identical to yours. the only exception is that he has a red feather mohawk instead of the spikes.

:icongaspplz: They must be related!?!? :nuu: Is he a thief, too? A Stormcloak? The Listener? Does he live in Lakeview Manor...? Is he married to Shahvee...? :O How much more do they have in common?!

He's a thief, a Nightingale, a Stormcloak, the Listener, yes, he lives at Lakeview Manor. But no, he isn't married to Shahvee. He isn't married at all, actually. He's half dragon (that's a hard one to explain, but i do have an explanation), so he's not exactly...sociable.

Lot's of similarities there..... They must be related somehow!!!! :nuu:
Well, all dovahkiins are kinda "half dragon." They have the blood and soul of a dragon, and even somewhat of the mind/instincts of one, as Paarthurnax made clear when he was talking about dragons' having a dominating nature and the dragonborn having similar feelings.
Or, are you referencing that he actually had a dragon as a biological parent, as Ralof asked in the game. =P

No, I mean he is legitimately half dragon. When his mother was pregnant with him, one of the very few living dragons attacked their village in Black Marsh. When it was eventually killed, Marduk absorbed it in her womb. Since the baby was still...pliable, for lack of a better term, the dragon's soul in essence erased the father's genetics and traits, and the baby was infused with dragon DNA.

Back to the artwork, absolutely stunning.

Guh, they are all too cheery sounding to me...Can I say the farewell I made for my Shadow dragons from my storyline, The Night series? No? Too bad because here it is:

May you always be cloaked in darkness,
May you always be downwind when you hunt and the wind forever be at your back when you fly,
And may the Night eternally guide your steps.

Aw, thank you. :meow: Whenever all of The Night series is finished you can read it. I have a few poems/short essays on dA, if you care. plus some concept art for all of my storylines. The Night series is my darkest and most violent storyline. The least violent is RACER. Night-Fire is the only storyline I will publish as a book. I am still writing Night-Fire.

I think your Dovahkiin should be rethinking his or her life. Like looking at its helmet and thinking something like, "Is it all really worth it?" Like maybe you're a terrifying mass killer or mercenary and you're just rethinking it. A ruin would be excellent, like the large one with the huge arches near Whiterun.

I like the overall detail in it. He looks like a hardened Lizard-man. The Daedric armor is sick. The clawed gloves are the best thing about Daedric armor, as well as the shoulders and helmet.
    I'm a Dunmer, for my Dovahkhiin. One that has had one helluva background.

Yeah, I don't know what he's thinking. I think the idea came after I was making him slide down a steep cliff almost to his death because I was too lazy to go the long way. He was upset at me thus I thought about drawing him already upset about something. But, he's a thief and proud of it! :la: My little criminal dovahkiin. :heart:

And thank you! :) I tried to make look awesome using very poor screenshots of him. When I get the game for PC and remaking him, I am so going to take better images of him. He's too handsome not too! :flirty:

Don't all of our dovahkiins have crazy backgrounds? ;)

I love him! Your colors are amazing and the shading is quite well-done!

I am also an Argonian. I'm a thin female with a purple-tinted throat and maroon/red war paint that goes over both eyes and down the face. ^^ I also sport white feathers on my head. They contrast nicely with the red face paint.

Thanks! Yeah, I love him too, in a you're-my-little-dovahkiin-bitch-do-what-I-say-or-else kind of way. =P

Sounds pretty. :) But, why do female argonians have boobs?!? Seriously, they are reptiles. Reptiles do not lactate for their offspring, only mammals. It is so stupid... Mammals produce milk for their babies and no other type of animals do that! Argh! -.-

I think about things a lot... You might be able to tell by looking at my concept art for my stories. ;P

XD  I'm not sure why Argonians need breasts. Perhaps the creators of the game only wanted them to look like that so that they appeared more female. Unless, in some weird portion of Elder Scrolls history, humans and Argonians shared genetic information. In which case it would be a leftover characteristic from that time, but I doubt it. It's probably just an aesthetic thing.

Speaking of concept art, I really need to go through your gallery now. XD

Yeah, I think that it has something to do that the designers were all guys and they needed every chick to have a big rack. It seems that you can always tell when a guy draws a girl because she always has enlarged boobs...

Yes, you totally should go through my gallery. :meow:

I don't know. I guess I just chose an interesting body-build for my Argonian, because she doesn't have a large chest. As a matter of fact, only the skin-tight clothes like the DB armor (and not wearing clothes) shows that she even has breasts. O_O Then again, I'm not a guy.... XD

I haven't been through the whole gallery yet, but I'll get there. Still working on NaNo. I might have to take an in-depth look after November is over. :)

Hmm, interesting. I've only have this guy, so I have no idea what the other races are like. I just know that he's my little badass and looks very sexy in deadra armor. ;)

I have not posted all concept art for my stories. I'm very protective. and I've only posted a few poems. I have not posted any of the actual stories just becauseI don't want people to steal from me. But, my stories have taken over my life and art. My username, Ga Maleven, is in fact a name of one of my main characters. Yes, my avatar is in fact Ga Maleven (The Weapon) himself. :) My little badass assassin :heart:. Isn't he just a cutie?!Flirtatious

It just takes practice. :) I still am very bad at drawing. I just gotta keep working at it. I've only had 7 years of art teachers, and until I start going to art academies, I'm on my own for the moment, of teaching myself and trying to better myself. :) It takes years of drawing and pushing yourself, and teaching yourself things, figuring things out, and learning from other artists. :)
And thanks. :) Hopefully after a few years of hardcore art academies, I will finally become a creature concept artist for the movie and gaming industries. :D

it's always daedric armor with everyone....

oh, and a suggestion for a background: how about the throat of the world?
(with parthurnaax' corpse in the background, pretty much giving him a reason to be sulking?)

Ga-Maleven Featured By Owner May 10, 2013  Student General Artist
Well, he's wears either his deadric or Nightingale, depends on his mood and purpose.

And, doesn't everyone use Throat of the World? I wasn't thinking about that just because it seems used so much. :shrug: I don't know, just don't want to do the same-ol'-same-ol', you know?
And no! I like Paarthy! I won't kill him! :( He's too cute! (I have a major crush on dragons. I hate it when I have to kill them, especially Alduin. And I mean dragons in general, not just Skyrim dragons. I've always loved the beasts for as long as I can remember) I was thinking that he's sulking because no one cares that he saved them from Alduin, Miraak, dragon priests, and pretty much everything. Just keeps getting arrested for stealing, when if not for him all them guards would be dead! I don't know. But thanks for the suggestion. :) I'll have to think about it. Unless, Paarthurnax just told him something really deep and he's in deep thought over it... hmmm...

Dragunov-EX Featured By Owner May 11, 2013
Sorry, That's just kind of overused for Dovakiin, these days.

Is the throat of the world overused? Not when I browse Skyrim art. Usually It can be anything. Yeah, I had the clue you had a crush on dragons when you picked an argonian as a dovahkiin. You dont nessasarily have to kill paarthurnax When Delphine tells you. When you she told me to do it for the first time, I was all like,"Fuck no, Screw you and your petty reasons." I thought delphine was... kinda of a bitch anyway.

But yeah, your choice is your choice, dude I just wanna see the final Product.

"You know what's wrong with Skyrim these days? Everyone is abscessed with Deadric armor!" :XD: It's just so cool! :meow:

Hmm, maybe not. It just seems to be one of those "duh" places. I've seen several pictures of dovahkiin up there, so I just thought I would try something different. I don't know, I like being random! =P And yeah, when she told me that I of course ignored her. I actually returned to Sky Haven Temple just to try punching her and Esbern to death, not that you can kill them. Never summon Durnehviir in there.... things get crazy... But he had plenty of room to move around. =P
And, I chose an argonian because, well, I like aliens! Although my brother's won't give me a break for making him the opposite sex. It's kind of funny when the adopted kids say "pa" and I'm like, "I'm a girl..." :XD:

Don't worry, I'll get it finished once I graduate and don't have all these nasty finals! :( Plus, I'm thinking of making a few Skyrim comics because my younger brother and I both agree that there's not enough sarcasm in all these Skyrim comics that we find. =P
