"Bee in your bonnet, Guard Captain?"

Really, it was just a matter of time before I started inundating my DeviantArt account with Elder Scrolls fanart. C'mon. You knew it was coming. >.>

Meet Nalvyna Sondryn: Dunmer, master archer, and endlessly cheerful Gentle(wo)man Thief.

I've affectionately taken to referring to her as 'Spanner', considering she's probably the last person you want to put in charge of an organized crime ring. Seriously, Brynjolf, what the hell were you thinking?

Her hobbies are stealing everything that isn't nailed down, getting dragged kicking and screaming into saving the world, and annoying the ever-loving shit out of her Guildmaster pretty much everyone she comes into contact with.

Her eyes are supposed to be copper-colored; I'm not sure whether or not I made them too red. On the other hand, those are probably the best irises I've ever done, so there ya go.


TESV: Skyrim is (c) Bethesda Game Studios.

Nal is (c) herself. She just occasionally shares my headspace. SPAAAAAAAAAAACE.

Io can't draw people sitting down, derp. :iconderpplz:

She's beautiful Io :') and ofmg, her hair. And her eyes. So pretty. No wonder Mercer wants to tap dat ass ;3
What's all this talk of you not being able to draw people? What is this slander? I love the way you draw :heart: It makes me happy :D

That pose and smile! They're wonderful! I love all the little details on her armour too, like all the leather straps and what not. Also; Spanner. Best nickname ever. Ever.

This reminds me that 1) I still haven't done any Skyrim fanart and 2) I still haven't completed Skyrim. Damn.

Can I just say, that the other A!A's and I on that certain meme stalk you lovingly? Because the stuff you write is seriously good, in a ridiculously smutty, snarky way.

Awww, look at me blush. ^^
I take your wonderful, wonderful, stalkery love and I give it right back because you are AWESOME and also amazing. Thanks so much for your support; I meant it when I said I'd probably never finish anything if not for my fellow anons.

I accept your loving returns. I love Nalvyna's character because she's probably exactly what I'd be if I were in such situations - snarking the crap out of all and sundry.

That's really the only way to react to a world that is constantly trying to get you killed. You can either fight it every step of the way, turning into some kind of gritty, angst-soaked antihero along the way, or you can laugh in its smug face.
The latter one is much more entertaining.

I suspect Nal may be the unholy offspring of Kaylee and Snarky!Hawke, myself. >.>

Aww, she's adorable :aww:
Iofiel Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2012
Why thank you! ^^
She would like a hug. Don't do it; you'll find yourself minus everything even remotely shiny on your person. She's like a magpie that way. I think she sews the glittery stuff into her bed lining.
