Skyrim - Argonian Nightingale by DJCoulz Skyrim - Argonian Nightingale by DJCoulz
Seriously, first Pokemon now Skyrim? I'm such a nerd.

I originally sketched this a while back when I first got my Nightingale armor! I love it so much too, it's like the Batman Armor for Skyrim. Though when you wear the hood you can't tell my char's an Argonian, except for his tail. XD

Anyways, enjoy guys!

Also, does anyone (who plays the game) play where they can see their char? I think I'm the only one who does XD I think most people play where you can just see your hands.

Epic! And I love the use of the Ancient Nord Greatsword, fits the look of the Nightingale Armor; I did the same thing with my dark elf, but with dual Ancient Nord Swords.

I love Argonians. They're probably my favorite race. Argonian assassins are super badass!

It's ok. I'm a nerd as well. Skyrim is possibly one of the only games I'll ever play and enjoy fully. Thanks to my friend FearsGlitch Dub. She got me into it. Khaijiits are my favorites

Wow, that just about sums up my Skyrim playing, argonian wielding an ancient nord greatsword, or, like on my brother's ps3, a dwarven greatsword

Looks really good. I played third person view when I had skyrim and I played as an argonian. :D

Hell Yeah. Argonian Nightingales through and through.

Great job, I love it!

And no, you're not the only one, I played the entire game without first person mode. :3

This is THE best image of an argonian I think I've seen! MUCH better than even the cannon one. There is something funky about the anatomy in the human. I think yours keeps the human-lizard idea, but does it right. As for your question- I played a mage and aiming hand-mode was much more fluid- granted I enjoyed 3rd person much more. I've been thinking about getting into ESO...that looks like 3rd person would work better

I play in third person, it makes it much easier to see where you're going!

I play seeing my character! I like seeing how she moves and fights! :D Plus whats the use in customizing your character if you never see him!
GulfKiller101 Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2014
badass! I love Argonians, they're awesome, especially Argonian warriors, his armour and that face are freaking badass! his face kind of reminds me of the Sakkra from Master of Orion 2

dragon6234 Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2014
well i play first person in Archery or Ranged magic other then that i play third. i also choose an armor that suits the characters background and personality for instance one character Telan Krei an Argonian has full Glass Armor and has two Daedric Swords Zeus's Razor (Couldn't remember if there was an electric god in Elder Scrolls) and The Blade Of The Demonic Wind (Sounded cool at the time now sounds like a demon farted on the sword) and his Daedric Bow, Hellsong. another character is an Argonian tribal so she wears full Forsworn armor and has a Dragon Bone Axe and a Dragon Bone Sword, nothings enchanted yet

i play with my characters view, i feel like i can't see as much action with just my hands
Wesker86 Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
Excellent work! I love laying where I can see my character (3rd person), but i occasionally switch if I'm looking for something like a quest item or need to make an epic shot with my crossbow lol.

i love this armor
goozulgah Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2014
An Apprentice Hood works, too. ;)

They might as well just name it "batman armor" and in the description it says "100+ the god damn batman"
snowleopard96 Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2013
Nice! And I have to play seeing my character because first person shooter, or just seeing their hands, screws with my mind and gives me head aches and makes me really tired.

But! This picture is bad ass. Where did you get that outfit?
The3nigma Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2013
Wonderful picture! He looks like a spikier, two-handed using version of my character with no red.
Pyrus-Leonidas Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2013
when I first played Skyrim... I always liked the Argonian Race.. because I could make my own kind of warrior... chose my own selective armor.

Great dragonborn art, I love it!!!

The Nightingale Armor is my favorite armor in the game. Your picture looks a lot like my character, except I also wear the hood.
VeroNightshade Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I actually play where I can see myself as well. There are a few screenshots on my profile of my character. I love this game as well! ^_^
StripesTheHedghog Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2013
wow he looks like a bad ass although mine is and always will be a bad ass too
Zealandfox Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2013  Student Interface Designer
That is one of the best Argonians i have ever seen, and Nightingale Armour is in fact he best.
W0nderbolts Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2013
glory for the argonians!!
Skianous Featured By Owner May 29, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I wish you could get Argonians to look that cool without mods. Oh well, they're still waaay cooler than in Oblivion !

And I also play in third person view, even for the fights ! :3 I only use the FPS camera to shoot my bow or perform actions, because I don't like how static the character always look... It's like : "Oh, a chest ! I'm gonna open it with my super-duper telekinetic powarz !":p
Myrethy Featured By Owner May 28, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I can already tell that this is going to be my favorite armor when I get the game.
pantsbucket Featured By Owner May 26, 2013
That greatsword looks... well, great.
GenericHSFan Featured By Owner May 18, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I play with my character visible most of the time. Good for sneaking.

The nghtingale armor rocks by itself, but it could be better if the mask didn't make my Argonian look like it didn't have a snout.
DracoMidnight Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
XD I agree with you completely! The helmet covers your face up and doesn't show that you have a snout! Which is why I leave the helmet off
LastShadowOfTheElves Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013
I play in third person all the time ^-^ you are not alone haha
Dekiar70 Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2013
Just like my Argonian. Got to admire the nightingale armor, eh?
Nightshot33 Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
two-hander for a stealth character?
HyenaWithAPen Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2013  Student Digital Artist
This looks awesome! My first character was a khajit, but then I started a new file with an Argonian. My system for some reason autosaved over my old file, so now I'm stuck starting back at the beginning... :doh:
I've tried playing the game in third person, but it just doesn't work for me, so I always keep it in first person. And while I do like the Nightingale armor, I tend to stick with dragonscale just because the armor rating is much better. :D
DragonLover47 Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
i love the whay you made the argonians head, i just wish they gave us more options for them and karjiits
Reptillicus Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2013
wow I like you art style!
OniVrask Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I play in first person while using archery or while looting pickpocketing that sort of thing.
Longtail36 Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013 AWESOME >8D
Moonraven21 Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
Very nice. I play as an Argonian, and when I'm not wearing my Daedric armor, I have the attire of the Nightingales. ^^
Astro-Kid-248 Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I play third person too. Can't stand first person, it feels awkward and my character seems short.
bigton Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2013   Artist
Same, I mostly play an Altmer, (My character Anyala) and I hate when I'm obviously taller but I have to look up to see their eyes.
kitsune019 Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I love this game I'm such a money collecter and I love the enchanted weapons in skyrim
kitsune019 Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
