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! :)
