Kharjo the Traveling Warrior by SlayerSyrena Kharjo the Traveling Warrior by SlayerSyrena
Here is my, as of now, current companion in Skyrim as
I had to drop Cicero off at home as he isn't exactly
the best to have around during more delicate missions (think non-killing Thieves Guild jobs).

I personally think Kharjo is one of the coolest looking Khajiit's in-game.

Kharjo belongs to Bethesda.

My only real issue with this portrait (which is very nicely rendered, technically speaking) is that it doesn't capture the character's... character. Kharjo's in-game face (with its asymmetrical coloring) reminds me of an actual housecat's, while in this image, he seems like somebody else. If one were to take just the face out of the context of this image, I would not have recognized the character.

The armor is quite accurately-rendered, while the background (simple enough not to distract from the portrait, but detailed enough to be recognizable) is typical of Dawnstar and environs.

I hope this is helpful; I hesitate to critique the work of people more talented than I. =^[.]^=
What do you think?

I love Kharjo! He looks like my Khajit's brother (white tiger/leopard khajit :P) only difference is mine has spots on the tail where Kharjo has stripes
Awesome portrait!
Love his self-assured pose, and the lighting on his armour! :la:

Oh, thank you!
You are welcome! HappyDance 
Kharjo is one of my favorite Khajiit in Skyrim. This is an excellent piece of artwork.

He's one of my faves too. Thank you.
I had Mjoll the Lioness for a while, then somewhere along the line, she glitched out and the game ate her. I tried every console command I knew, but nothing helped, couldn't move her to me, if I moved to her I just went to some empty place and she wasn't there. Tried killing her and resurrecting her, NOTHING. Her body wasn't in the DeadBodyCleanupCell (and that took some searching, I dunno how many NPC's I've accidentally killed because they got in the way of my fireballs when I was killing a dragon and I'm just like, oh well).

And the way Lydia kept saying "I am sworn to carry your burdens" like it was some horrible chore that annoyed her pissed me off, so now she just tidies my house and eats my bread. (Seriously, I leave shit on the floor in my Breezehome, and I come back and it will be sitting on a table or against a wall. Whatever bitch, at least you're useful that way).

So now I run around with Kharjo, cuz cats look cool in armour, that's why. I made him all kinds of fun armour, and named it specially for him. He has "The One Ring" and "Shit Kickers" and a helmet called "Cats Don't Like Hats" on account of they really don't. (My cat refuses to wear any kind of apparel). Plus I like Kharjo's accent. And I gave him staves to dual wield, because it highly entertains me to watch a CAT run around shooting fireballs and chain lightning and ice spikes at people. I'll just stand back and let him blow stuff up and laugh hysterically.

And that is probably more than you EVER wanted to know about my gaming habits...

Cats DO look cool in armor, yes.
