Skyrim: Eirnin (Breton) by DJCoulz Skyrim: Eirnin (Breton) by DJCoulz
My second Character in Skyrim. (So nerdy lately) Eirnin (Air - Nen) An Irish name since the Breton's of Skyrim are more Irish/Scottish mix rather than in Oblivion when they were more French based.

He's a Breton (Which the first time I read their name I thought it was "Brenton" which I still call them that haha) I always like using the Minorities in the Elder Scrolls. These guys are human mixed with Elves. (Thus why his eyes are more Elven, and his ears have a tiny point, I don't care for Elves, but I like the Breton's features. Also, instead of going magic (which is what they are made for) I made him a swordsman, which is actually really helpful because as a combat person I'm almost always weak against magic people, but with his aversion to magic it makes the combat all the more easy.

As an Artist I can't play games with customizable characters without coming up with a back story! I'M SORRY. XD I can't even help it I end up with a huge detailed backstory without even trying to. Plus the game is so much fun and intricate it's hard not to.

His backstory makes it kinda hard to play though, no bad guys so no Dark Brotherhood, Thieves Guild, Nightingales, Coven of Namira or any of the Daedric stuff for that matter. And since Nords are Racist to his people, no Companions or Stoarm Cloaks. There aren't alot of "good" guilds. Just the Mages, Bards, and later The Blades (but the Blades will take a while)

That was alot of nerdy, I'm done now. XD

I dunno, just doodles while between actually work drawings. Hopefully you like them even if you aren't a Elder Scrolls nerd.

I like his profile! :D Your art's fantastic too.

In Skyrim, I found that it is a bit hard to find a guild that's "good" (and not racist). Normally, the Fighter's Guild would be a safe bet, but the Companions are the Fighter's Guild in Skyrim.

My girl is a Breton!  I made her into a dual-wielding warrior with a habit of collecting all the weapons she can get her hands on. :iconallthethingsplz:  But she never knows what she might need in a fight so...  better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it, eh?  I'm still working on her back story, but for now she's joined the Companions and the Imperials.  Not to say that she's overly loyal to anyone in particular - just that Ulfric smells like a rat, looks like a rat, and sounds like a rat.  She's not a fan of rats.  Also, werewolves are cool.

Wow, this is very well done! I'll be honest I'm kind of in love with him. XD You're art style is fantastic, and I'd love to see more Elderscrolls art from you! His physical characteristics and personality makes him really interesting. Awesome job! :)

Pft, they were ugly in Skyrim (honestly, I don't like how they did the elves in Skyrim either), but in the early games they looked decent.

Gorgeous gorgeous rending by the by ; w; You definitely have talent in rendering men ♥

I usually don't like giving guys a 'cosmetic' look, but in this case, him being a Breton, he has really crazy feminine elf eyes. Though I did draw the last pic to girly for my taste. XD

I'm personally more of a Heavy Armour person, but the Light armour works best with this character, and looks good on him xD

Plus considering how goodie-two-shoes he is Daedric wouldn't really look right haha.

I LOVE your character. i play with a Breton too, but heīs a bit darker than Eirnin (Member of the Dark Brotherhood and thieves guild, but he donīt like very much this one), but heīs in Winterhold and the Imperial Army too...I think they would be great friends xD

Awesome Job, really man ;)

PD: I didnīt know bretons were a mix of human and mer
Reply
:icondjcoulz:
DJCoulz Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2012   Digital Artist
Yep Breton were a result of humans being slaves to Mer back in the day I believe, so there was some cross breeding, thus their resistance to magic and such.

I always imagined that their magic resistance were natural. the idea of a Mer slaved race...Itīs simply incredible. Thatnks for the info bro.

Yeah I picked the glass Armour because it look the best with his design. Haha yeah, you should think about making a Breton, no amour or fighting skills to start, but if you work those up you have a lot of magic and magic resistance pre-packed in. Really helpful.

As a writer I can definitely relate to not being able to create a character without an elaborate headcanon. But it does make the game more fun, imho.
