Skyrim - Watch The Skies by nihilistique Skyrim - Watch The Skies by nihilistique
Lo, thar be dragons!

For more pictures and construction notes, visit my website! [link]

Follow me on facebook! [link]


Dovahkiin made and modeled by me. Axe and shield made by my very talented friend Daniel Kim.

Armor is the Banded Iron Armor, Iron Helmet, Iron Shield and Ancient Nord War Axe from Skyrim.

I'm really happy to finally get to show my Elder Scrolls love through a costume. :heart:

Seriously awesome design work put into the armour and weapons! Is that real metal on some of them? Also beautiful location, and very cool composition.. a brave shieldmaiden peering through the forest into the dragon-filled distant skies. Very beautiful model too!

Nice. Where did you shoot this? The presence of actual dragons leads me to believe it was taken in Pennsylvania? Cuz there are dragons in Pennsylvania.

The blade is wood, and the raised details on the blade are Sintra (a thermoplastic) the end of the handle and the details on the handle are Apoxie Sculpt and the shaft is a tree branch.
