Garfield and friends by Begnoche48 Garfield and friends by Begnoche48
Here's the finished picture. YAY!
Hope you guys like it! Derky's elven armor was sooooo hard to color, haha.
Also If you guys want me to upload the individual portrait of a character, I will. I'm just alittle apprehensive of doing that now because I would feel like I'm spamming my watchers...

Character Bio Thingies:


My first Dovahkiin, Listener, Harbringer, and Thane of the 5 major holds. He came to Skyrim to start over and escape his dark past that I'm too lazy to come with now, but it was dark. REALLY. He was planning to lay low and join one of the Khajiit caravans, but that idea went out the window after the attack at Helgen. He then decided he would make up for his misdeeds and try to conceal his true nature by becoming the hero of Skyrim...and that worked for a time. Eventually though he started becoming bored and restless and sought the power of the deadric Lords. He has now fully embraced the dark, bloodthirsty nature he was trying to run away from. Woe to the non-essential NPC that wanders into his path.

He sports his beloved ebony mail and fully powered ebony blade. YAY BETRAYAL!!


Garfield found this curious lizard trapped in a cave while he was still trying to be a noble hero. The two instantly connected and Garfield admired Derkeethus's toughness and virtue. What intrigued him more, though, was that the lizard was was immortal. This was a good part of both of their lives. Their constant adventuring turned Derkeethus into a very powerful warrior, and his goodness was starting to rubbing off on the troubled cat. It was beginning to look like Garfield was going to be able to lead the happy life he was lookign for. They became very close adventuring together and eventually their friendship turned ino love and they got married. Unfortunately, this was the beginning of the end of Garfield's sanity because the marriage is what truely made him restless and seek out the dark influences of Skyrim. Poor Derkethus...he'd probably be dead if it wasn't for his mysterious power :/

He sports some well crafted elven armor snaged off a dead altmer from the embassy.


Garfield's encounter with this mysterious women is what pushed him over the edge into the dark abyss and probably the only person that he never even thought of killing. Eola allowed Garfield fully accept his nature so he didn't have to struggle against it throughout the rest of his life. Ever since their first encounter, the have been inseperable, unfortunately for Derkeethus. Eola has become sort of a mentor to Garfield and he respects her greatly. She probably the closest thing to a family he has ever had.

She dawn an Exquiset set of Forsworn armor, enchanted by her bffl, Garfield, with a mage hood so Garfield wouldn't confuse her with other forsworn and mace her face.

Soooooo there you have it. My next big picture will be of my second OC and his gang.

The texture used in the background is from[link]

Hope you like it!!! :D

Aww... Poor Derkeethus... :( He's gotta be my favorite character of all the Elder Scrolls games!


My own main Skyrim character was as dark as I could make him, killing everything on sight, looting and stealing anything that had value... He was a top assassin and rogue... Until he met Derkeethus :)

You made on tiny mistake with Derkeethus' armor; the thalmor elven armor has no pauldrons. Just thought I'd point that out. Not saying you should change it also. :) Anyways, good work. :)
