Me: Paarthurnax, a princess I love very much has been kidnapped! Will you help me find her?! D:

Paarthurnax: I have a better idea. How about don't save her at all ever.

Me: What?! O_O

Paarthurnax: Trust me, you save her once, she'll just get kidnapped again, and it'll become a never ending cycle of monotony and frusteration...

Me: ...That... makes a bit of sense. o-o How did you know all that? o:

Paarthurnax: Believe me, I just know...

I was trying to think of how you would draw Alduin and Durnehviir. Then I thought of them having a conversation. Then I thought of Alduin being in the Soul Cairn.
Alduin: EAT ALL THE SOULS!!!
Durnehviir: No no no. NOT IN MAH HAUSE!!!
Alduin: *Has a seizure*

I wish Delphine would have become killable along with him in his quest. I'd gladly kill her in his place for even suggesting harming that sweet fella.

Paarthurnax... He's so awesome! When Esbern comes and wants you to kill him you just want answer:

"You want me to kill Paarthurnax?! But he's so cool and he helped me!
No, I just can't! I could never do it! :icononionfailplz:

I was battling an Ancient dragon at the Throat of the World, and Paarthurnax decided to help.... but miserably failed. So now the Greybeard dudes are all pissed at me 'cause they think I killed him. And I guess I'm a part of the Blades now too...

Ah, the old dragon on the mountain. His old tattered wings and, to my imagination, dragon beard. He just looked like an old man dragon to me; and you really captured this well. I especially love the snow falling in the background.
I hated that the blades wanted you to kill him. I refused. I don't turn on people who helped me and kill them; that's just mean. (plus it reminded me too much of when I had to kill all the member of the cheydinhal sanctuary in oblivion, which made me sad)
But, lovely work as always!

Thank you! I'm glad he appears as an 'old man' dragon to you in this illustration.
That is what I was trying to convey. (The only deviation from this was that I made his
gold colors a bit brighter).

Oh, and I didn't kill him either.

You are very welcome. He was very much the wise old mentor of skyrim, especially with how he sat atop the world, like a hermit. I like that is colors are brighter. It certainly makes him seem more 'alive.'
I am glad you didn't kill him. I think not killing him really shows the power of forgiveness and redemption. Whatever he did in the past is forgiven. At least in my book. :)

First, I have to say how much I love his attentive look from the tilt of his head. I really get a sense of him being curious and listening carefully as someone speaks to him. It grabbed my attention immediately. I think you drew him as extremely expressive which is very impressive for a dragon.

Next, I love the soft blue-white glow of his eyes. It's subtle, but pretty and I noticed it from his posture. I also like the various speckles of color you did throughout his scales. There's almost a sense of freckles on his face and I think it makes him (dare I say the word?) adorable.

I just love the blend of golds. I've always thought of Parrthurnax as a gold dragon and I like the almost D&D feel of color here. It adds to his nobility and desire to do what is right. I also like how you remembered to leave the tears in his wings. I've always felt they add a level of vulnerablity and age to an immortal creature.

I'm just impressed by the little details you've added to him. The more I look, the more I notice them. The little ridges around his face, the ragged wings, the tilt of his head, the detailed scales on his chest and arms. And that's a sign of good art. The longer you look, the more you see.

The background is gorgeous and another well done executiong of simplicity. I love the night sky and it's multitude of stars. What process did you use to get the stars? I don't imagine you did them all by hand. The clouds at the bottom are also a nice sublte touch. It gives a sense of being high above the earth, appropriate for being at the top of the Throat of the World! But it doesn't detract from the focus either.

I'm very happy you noticed his expression. I was trying to convey an intelligent curiosity in his face.

And, wow, you noticed all the details I worked in too! I just love your in-depth comment. It lets
me know that what I was attempting to pull off worked. I'm also happy you also see him as a gold dragon.
I received so many unsolicited opinions on his 'true' color I was about to go nuts. Half the screenshots show
him as gold, and many fanarts do as well. And more importantly, he's gold in my game!

The D&D comment. I grew up drawing D&D art, from the best artists featured in those books, so that's been an influence of mine a long time ago. Guess it still shows. ^^

I just used various 'star' brushes to make the stars and I'm happy you liked the clouds too.

Thanks again for this killer comment! :dance:
