FINALLY DONE! *Collapses*
For a week I have put all my spare time into this drawing... hope it was worth it. SO much HAIR... and FUR... and something that I think is CHAINMAIL... that means sloooow progress. :D

It's drawn with pencils, and I darkened the darkest spots with markers for contrast. The paper I used was quite crappy, so it couldn't take my usual pen pressure when I make the dark spots with just pencils. :D
Of course the contrast has been enhances with PS a bit too...

It's for all you fellow Stormcloaks out there! :D Mr. Ulfric ("Mighty Nose") Stormcloak! (What? He does have a big ass nose!)

My goal was to get a feeling of "real" into a computer game character. (Does not equal pursuing photorealism mind you!!)
So there he is... probably during invading Solitude, spurring his men for an assault.

I hope you like it. The only part I'm not that statisfied with it's the mouth... But I guess that'll have to do. :)
Took some artistic freedom with his hair, because when I drew it I had just had a small screenshot as reference, so I wasn't sure if he had a little ponytail back there.. But it turned out that his hair must be reeeally greasy to be able to stay like that without one.. :P.

The camera did something funny to the chainmail/armor jacket on his left arm (our right) o.O It really doesn't look that.. crumbly IRL. I guess it was shiny in that spot. But I'm not going to rephotograph it, at least not now, because then I'd have to do all the other edting to get the contrasts etc. right too...

Very nice! Great job on all the hair and fur.

Love the drawing, but what's with the people on here who keep saying Ulfric is awesome. He's a racist asshole. He only cares about the nords and treats the other races like shit. He's a fucking Nazi. Killing him was one of the best parts of the game for me.

Kindly point me to a race in game that isn't racist? If that's your biggest complaint, then you should equally hate all the characters in game.

Secondly, other than other people *telling* you he's racist, what's your proof? I've played through as Khajiit and elf, and Ulfric treats me just fine~ even before I discover I'm dragonborn.

as to the argonians and dark elves? you do know there's a few layers between the jarl and his city, right? Pretty good bet they were originally segregated to keep them from fighting (you do remember Brand Shei's past, right?)

and his steward will tell you he's not that great shakes at stewarding, probably doesn't want to bother the jarl with the 'minor' problems in windhelm.

thing is, the issues you have with Ulfric are not things the Empire can or will fix. Look at Northern Ireland or your pick of places in the Middle East for proof.  Empire winning pretty much means continued Thalmor injustices (because they've already whupped the Empire, Empire just can't admit it) and the entire province turning into the Reach.

and heightened hostilities between the Nords and other races. congratulations

That does not matter. Ulfric still segregates the people under his rule. Segregation of any kind is still racist. It doesn't bring peace. It only makes things worse. Look at American history. When blacks and whites were separated do you think that made prejudice just disappear. No it only made things worse. Things only got better when segregation ended. Now in modern American society it is considered taboo to be racist. My compliant is that Ulfic is unwilling to look for a way in which all the races can live together in harmony.

Honey, you're talking to a woman raised in the south, I've prolly forgotten more about the civil rights struggle than you ever learned, and I guarantee you half of what you learned was wrong.

If you have two groups of people hellbent on killing each other and anyone between them, ALL you can do is separate them, and SLOWLY without overt coercion start building relationships between them. Toss them together without oversight or safeguards, and you have a dead town.

and I Still say you're being unfairly judgemental on Ulfric, when every damn race in Tamriel is racist as hell. WHY are you judging Ulfric, when Tullius is as bad or worse, and the Thalmor make both of them look like beginners?

I would also like to point out that with the war on, he's pretty busy clearing out the Empire and Thalmor, rightly thinking it won't matter a hill a beans if the Thalmor win. They're all dead and/or slaves if the Thalmor win.

Yes every race contains its fare share of racist. The nords want nothing to do with the other races, the High elves think that men and beast races are inferior, the dragons belive they superior to all of the two legged races etc. Maybe I was treating Ulfric kinda harshly but racist was the impression I got out of the guy.

well, you were meant to, but there are indicators that maybe it ain't exactly what it seems. ESPECIALLY since three fourths of the fanfics that go 'omg RACIST BAD ULFRIC" usually wind up in the exact same fight they found Ulfric in, with the exact same racist underlings fighting for them.

I also find it entertaining that the only people claiming he's in it for himself are either Tullius and Rikke, who HAVE to convince themselves of that fact (i mean, how hard are you gonna fight against a guy you think is fighting for the right reasons?) and bright eyed inexperienced optimists like Laila's youngest son.

and it's very silly to believe the fighting will end with Ulfric's defeat. There's all the proof you need in the real world (mid east, Northern Ireland, etc) and in game (can we say Reach, anyone? I knew you could) so from that perspective, the only smart way to have enough troops against the thalmor are a stormcloak victory ~ cause EVERYONE can agree to a thalmor killin' party, no matter their politics, even Altmer ^_^.
