Yup. It's another one of my Skyrim Argonians. :)
Painted with watercolours and some details with ProMarkers.

This one joined the dark brotherhood and fulfills the contracts with (damn expensive) ebony war axes and awsum sneak skillz.
EDIT: Oh yeah for those who wonder about the feet: I use an "Argonian Raptor Feet" -mod which turns the feet of all Argonians to dinosaur feet. :) Like it more than the too human like ones. AND the mod neatly modifies all (original) boots to fit the feet like in the picture! <3 (Not sure about player created boots)

..Later on she joided the Stormcloaks.. Ulfric's da MAN! Never that sassy "just doing the job" Tullius for me.

I don't like the... TIGHTNESS.. of the Shrouded Armor so I just wear the boots and braces along with a Leather Armor. Looks less.. well.. suggestive. xD

Those red.. things are supposed to be mushrooms.. :D Probably Fly Amanitas.

There's a couple of guys in Skyrim Nexus trying to make those feets in digigrade for both race beast... I hope the make it... It seems to fit really well to the argonian those feets
And I have to totally agree with you xD
Looks less suggestive
which is good

It's possible that they do.
I'm not even sure if they already have it on Steam. So far, it only makes both races to have different meshes from the humans (and have unique helmets)... with it, it will later be possible to put the digigrade feets.)

LOL, I know what you mean about the tight dark brotherhood armor xD I suppose it fits Astrid.. as she was probably created for the males :p

I don't have one particular favorite side in the civil war, although everytime Ulfric holds his 'I fight for the men I've held in my arms'-speech I'm like 'YEAH, let's go crush some imperial skulls' =D

Oh wait, before I start ranting about Skyrim.. Great drawning! I really like your style, and also the variety in your gallery :)

Ulfric is just power hungry, I also doubt he can stop that Aldmeri Dominion or unite Skyrim. I'd wager he'd get assassinated by the Dark Brotherhood before too long in the end.

Who knows. Whatever side you choose in the war, both Tullius & Ulfric hint that another war with the Dominion might be approaching. I don't think Skyrim will be left alone anyway. Curious how Bethesda will continue the lore :)

Hmm I'd wager they'd follow the empire side of it myself, likely the Aldmeri Dominion will be defeated in the end.

What I'm hoping is the Khajiit take back Elsweyr, as I understand they were driven into the Tenmar forest. I think or maybe that was just that Moon Path To Elsweyr mod. O.o Anyways I'd wager the elves will be defeated, I hope a DLC will come that expands into that from the Civil War storyline, whichever side your chose.

I'm sorry but I can't see an argonian fighting for the stormcloaks. Ulfric is already racist against us (my guy is an argonian too) why would we help him become high king? He would boot us from the land or make us into boots if we refused to leave.

:icondragonsoul2:
Dragonsoul2 Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well, since the game lets it happen and in the end Ulfric expresses his personal gratitude and trust no matter what race, It doesn't seem to be that deep.

Also, because it certainly wasn't the Stormcloaks that wanted to chop her head off in the beginning.

And if you listen to all dialogue between Ulfric and Galmar, you see that their motives aren't that racist. Their point is not to drive out all the other races, but to be freed of the Empire and then Thalmor. If you play through the Stormcloak storyline, you will understand them better and see that they aren't that racist. They just are passionate about freeing Skyrim from the Thalmor. Their prejudicies about elves and others are because Nords have fought countless wars with elves thoughout the ages. But my point is that if you (argonian or elf) gain their trust, they'll learn that others aren't so bad.

Quite important also: When Galmar asks you: "...But first, tell me. Why's an [insert x race here] want to fight for Skyrim?" When wanting to join the Stormcloaks, and you ask back "So you only take Nords?"
He answers: "You mistake me. I'm not saying no - just wondering about your intentions. We're not looking for sellswords. The Stormcloaks need dedicated men and women who're devoted to the cause and willing to die for it."

You should try it out if you haven't.

Galmar is blind sadly, he can't see that Ulfric is using him and the others to his own ends. Also Ulfric ran from Alduin, Tullius fought Alduin. I'll go with the Leader who would die along side his men, than the one who ran away and left his "people" to die.

Aside from that the art is amazing and I to played through the Stormcloak side of the war, the only thing remotely good that came of it, was an Argonian Stewerd in Morthal...that's it.

"if you gain their trust they'll learn that others aren't so bad," You would think so, nut Ulfric just thinks Nords are better than everyone else (maybe with the exception of other human races) but if Ulfric isn't as racist as you claim he is, then why does he make;

A: The dark elves live in the crappy grey quarter (which he does absoloutly NOTHINHG about)

B: The Argonians live pretty much as paid slaves.

All of these are still present after gaining their trust. (I know the game is not going to build new homes and stuff for the NPCs but their tone would change. i.e. If you capture Windhelm as an imperial, the Argonians and Dark elves seem alot happier. However when you choose Stormcloak it seems they hate you just a little bit more.)

If it weren't for surviving Helgen, you probably wouldn't have been inducted into the Stormcloaks if you were anyone but a nord (or human for that matter).

I have tried being a Stormcloak and frankly your reward is just stupid. You get General Tulius's armor. Tell me, why would wear that if you don't support the empire? Atleast with the Imperials you get Ulfric's clothes which are mainly living clothes to wear so you can look cool around the house.

Also the Stormcloak rebellion does not make sense. If Skyrim were to break away from the empire, then there is nothing stopping the Aldmeri Dominion from overunning Skyrim. All the Stormcloaks are just pawns of Ulfric so he can be the high king (and granting a few of his promises so he doesn't look bad when he gets there). If he were high king, he wouldn't last long when the Dominion takes over.

You know when I first started the game I was going for Stomrcloaks. However when I saw how the Stormcloaks treated the Argonians (my race) I was convinced that I did not want a prick like Ulfric ruling skyrim. Elisif seems like a better ruler and she deserves it since it was her husband that died.

(Take note, I do not mean any of these things in an offesive way. I geuss i just want a good argument to keep me busy. So if anything seems like it would be in a displeasurable tone, just know I mean this in the most respectable way :) )

If the Aldmeri Dominion didn't kill Ulfric, The Dark Brotherhood will, assured of that, no shortage of people would pay for his death.

Only problem is the Aldmeri Dominion would have a better chance at assasinating Ulfric than the Dark Brotherhood. The Dominion has a vast network of cantacts all over Tamriel, let alone Skyrim. Seeing as neither side has done it yet (if in the game you stay neutral) then they both have their own reasons for keeping him alive.

True, but the Brotherhood killed the Emperor right on his own ship. If they brought back the Shadowscale's, there'd not be anyone they couldn't take out, I'm certain of that.

:iconpancakeminezz:
pancakeminezz Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
If the shadowscales came back then yes (cuz argonians are teh best :D). Also, the reason the Brotherhood could get away with killing the Emperor on his own ship is because the Penitus Oculotus were relaxed; they thought the Brotherhood was gone for good. Which gave the assasin the upper hand. However, you do have a point about the boat thing anyway, the guards should have been ready to begin with.

Yep, very much so, used my khajiit huntress and they never knew what hit them, literally, killed a few sitting at tables. -_- Veezara can't be the last Shadowscale, other argonians will be born under the sign of the shadow. With the Brotherhood back under The Night Mother and Sithis, it is surely a matter of time.

Ehm.. the reward is that Ulfric gives you his name (STORMblade) and accepts you as his kinsman... That's an honour, not material reward. Perhaps it would be more lore friendly to do it as a nord, but it's a game, not real, and the player can decide a lot. I'm the one who is playing and I wanted to do that, even though I was an Argonian.

Get so annoyed that people diss the Stormcloaks because of the prejudicies. Being in the Dark Brotherhood or Thieves Guild is way less morally right if you ask me. Stormcloaks acually fight for freedom of speech if you think about it. Prejudicies must be worked on. Like in a fight, one of the parts must start with offering peace.

Even one of the dark elves in Windhelm says that "The only way we're going to win the Nords' respect is through hard work".

Hu, I never thought about it that way. I geuss it really would make more sense as Nord but you do make a point about gaining their trust now that I think about it. Especially if the dragonborn wasn't a nord, Ulfric would change his tone.

If they didn't come off at first like they hated everyone who wasn't a nord, I probably would have joined. In fact I was already inducted into the Stormcloaks but then I found the docks and saw how the argonians (and my future wife, Shahvee, was treated). Then I joined the Imperials so the Argonians would be happier (I could have really cared less about the Dunmer in the city). However, I do agree about how the Guild and Brotherhood having less morals.

The thing is, they shouldn't have to earn their respect. Nords are no better than the Elves or Argonians. That's what makes me mad, when people actually believe they have to earn someone's respect who is no better than them.

My main problem with the Stormcloaks are politically, they are like children. They would dismantle the empire (that the person they are trying to defend built) that is the only thing keeping the Dominion out of Skyrim.

I have restarted my account numerous times and found out the game has alot less glitches and makes sense when you talk to the AI if you don't participate in the war. So what I did with my latest restart was go as far as the Jagged Crown and keep the crown so it will go with my Dragonscale/bone armor.

I geuss I may have some misunderstandings of the Cloaks but I like the idea of being in an organized army over a bunch of organized rebels.

Not going to stretch the debate any further, I'm fine with this, but just have to point out a little conflict between something you said and your earlier motives. ;)
"..but then I found the docks and saw how the argonians (and my future wife, Shahvee, was treated). Then I joined the Imperials so the Argonians would be happier (I could have really cared less about the Dunmer in the city)."

Now isn't that quite "race egoistic" as well..? ;)

Okay.

Well, my point was that I hate it when nords treat Argonains bad. Argonians are the coolest thing in the game next to dragons and I hate to see them live in such a slum. Now when I said "I could have cared less" maybe I was being a little bit over exaderative. I don't hate the dark elves, in fact I think they are my favorite elf race (atleast as far as personalities go) but my main point was I was more interested in helping my people. Getting the elves through the door could have been just an add on as far as my character was concerned.

Just an interesting thing I saw for the first time today, that made me think of this little converstaion of ours. (Ah that's what i love about this game, even with almost 500 hrs of gameplay you still find things you haven't seen before!) In a game round where the Stormcloaks haven't won the war yet, I found a redguard farmer that said he is on his way to Windhelm to join the Stormcloaks, and how he thinks Ulfric is right and Skyrim is his home even though he has roots in Cyrodiil. Was fun to see other non-nords joining the ranks, in the actual game. :D
