Transmute by Darbaras Transmute by Darbaras
"You think I am wealthy? Being an enchanter in the lands of Skyrim is expensive. Do you realize how much a single soul of a Winged Twilight costs?"

Well, I decided to draw my so very original [Sarcasm] character, Giann-Naatraza once again, in a very cartoony and simple way, just to reflect his silly and lazy character design. ^^

Since I switched to animation school, - long story - I actually started drawing characters on paper again, as I never felt skilled enough to rely on my drawing skills before.
Back then, I made only rough sketches, and drew the rest of the lineart on PC with a mouse, which took much more time than necessary. (Days instead of hours)

Now, All I have to do is draw the character, scan it, and colour on PC. (Like normal people)

So, here you go: this is how I actually draw on paper. ^^

Hope you'll like it! :)

Changed the background colours for better contrast.

Giann-Naatraza @ to me
The Elder Scrolls universe @ to Bethesda Softworks

I don't normally like this style of art, but it works really well here. I especially love the way you've drawn the spell.

I really appreciate that! Actually, I find it surprising that this many people liked the picture and his simple design. It's very encouraging. ^^

I feel like he's destined to be the antagonist of an Elder Scrolls Disney movie. :P

Something like that. ^^ I wonder, what his villain song would be like? :D

Either that would be 'In the Hall of the Mountain King', or 'Carol of the Bells' (the re worked version) by Trans-Siberian Orchestra. If you're not into the Christmas spirit (as it is summer where I'm at), It makes for a good song for when the villian gains the upper hand.

Wow, so great! And so well done! I love this character! Only his line make me smile!

Thank you very much! :) I wish I could tell a bit more about him via a comic or something. Maybe one day. ^^
