Caught in the Rain by hyperionwitch Caught in the Rain by hyperionwitch
So, it turns out the key to me finishing paintings is making them about the Elder Scrolls series. Dear Princess Celestia, I love Morrowind. God I'm so alone, etc. etc.

A painting suggested by--and finished at least partially for--~WilliamSchatz. Two ladies embracin' outside Desele's House of Earthly Delights in Suran. I figure the Redguard is a regular and the Breton has become quite fond of her. I guess there was a rainstorm while they were out on a date, and they ran through it to get the Breton lady back to work? I make up these stories sometimes! It makes it even more interesting.

Anyway, good practice for different types of atmospheres, unusual lighting and colors, and wet fabric. DAMN wet fabric is tricky.

Setting belongs to Bethesda (I may have winged it a little--but it's so rainy and foggy that it's hard to tell)

And pony paintings, but that's not relevant here. Unless you paint ponies into Morrowind, which would kick all the ass.

Anyway, amazing piece! Do more!
So pretty! The folds on dem clothes are just awesome XD
And there is nothing wrong with Elder Scrolls paintings. ;D I say paint away!
great work :) nice detail :)

Okay- just what is going on with the redguard's head? I thought that it was a khajiit until I read the description. The more I look at and try to figure out where everything is the more confused I get, because to me it looks like this: [link] and you understand that forehead is no place for an ear. Whatever it is that you meant you should have emphasized it better what's going on since not much of the face is visible, the ear is the only defining part and viewed in that particular angle it only suggests what I drew in that example. Also the hand grabbing the butt is too small.

Anyways, great lighting! I know wet fabric is tricky but that's a pretty good one.

It's tilted back--you're looking more or less at the underside of her chin (or you would be, if the Breton's head wasn't in the way). I can sketch it for you (like you did!) if you'd like. I'm not sure how clear that is. lol I figured it'd be kind of implied, since that's how I would go about kissing somebody's neck and/or whispering in their ear (and also I thought the emphasized lighter jawline would help), but I suppose that was my mistake. Also yes, I know the hand is too small. I decided it was not a battle I wanted to fight, so...I guess she now has a strangely small hand. Lesson learned for the future.

Whatever you meant, you should have emphasized it more to prevent confusion, showing a little more facial features would have done the trick :) but please, you can show me the sketch if you want.
