This is a gift for :iconclandestine-assassin: who requested Lord Harkon and Valerica ballroom dancing together before they entered their unlife of vampirism.

Lord Harkon and Valerica belong to Bethesda
Art by Syrena Seale

It's really sad, the life they chose tore them apart.

ah, a look at this and its a snapshot of court life and it's trappings, a life without Molag Bal. Honestly, this is so beautiful, its bright and full of life. Molag Bal is, obviously my least favorite of the Daedric Princes, and its easy to forget that the evil monster what was Lord Harkon was once human, before the King of Corruption gave his family Vampiric Immortality.

your welcome! I love all your work and normally I don't have much to say but, this one really prompted a more thorough response as I really took time to look at and appreciate all the little details.

This is amazing. I especially like how you did Harkon's face. You can see the love between them. :)

I had always like to think that Harkon had an Anakin Skywalker-type of rationalization for vampirism; he was afraid of his family dying. And just like Skywalker, the dark side drove him into insanity and bloodlust.
