This is amazing! Haven't seen any of your art around lately, not sure if you've given up on drawing Elder Scrolls in favour of something else. Hope you're just busy.

Your free will is but an illusion.  It is fate that led you to create this beautiful piece of work.   Nice job!   You captured the scene very well,  and that lighting is AWESOME!

Aww... I love the creepy, cthulhu feel of this pic! (What can I say, I thoroughly enjoy the majority of your work.) It makes we wanna play Dragonborn yesterday and it tingles my imagination since my players in my RPG just found one of these books. Some know out-of-character what the book is, none of them know in-character and the chaos that will ensue when it is opened... off-topic. Most of all I like the squishyness of the eyes and tentacles and I'm amazed at the nice but small writing on the pages. Brilliant!
