Dunmer by TheMinttu Dunmer by TheMinttu
I'm in the mood for some Morrowind again, so I put on some Jeremy Soule and made a quick sketch. Morrowind's aesthetics for the Dunmer race appeal to me more than the fugly Oblivion Dunmer. :p

This was a very quick painting in between all the stuff I'm drawing/coloring at the moment, so forgive me the sketchiness.

That's a full set of (boiled) Netch leather armor, in case you were wondering. A cookie for you if you recognized it before reading this.

Photoshop CS4.

I really do miss Morrowind. I'm playing a Dunmer in Skyrim, and RP'ing him as a survivor from Morrowind, with ties back to the Morag Tong. Without the Morag Tong to guide his life, he's fallen in with the Theives Guild and Companions.

I always loved the Netch leather armor's scarf deal!

Chitin was the worst light armor/weapons in the game, but it's closely linked to the original ashlander culture of Vvardenfell so I appreciate it. U_U

I loved the diversity of the voices for Morrowind's races, but Bethesda must've really been slacking up on the race diversity for Oblivion. I mean, in Morrowind, the Dunmer were these soot-skinned, red-eyed badasses with deep, gravelly, chain-smoker voices, whereas in Oblivion, they were just like all the other mer/human races - rosy-cheeked, smooth-skinned, high-pitched voices. With all the cheeriness amongst the denizens, you'd think there wasn't really going to be a daedric invasion.

You captured the essential mood of the MW Dark Elf!

Truly excellent work!

I like this pic, it feels like its from Morrowind. The game I was just playing before I came to DeviantArt to see this pic. Morrowind Dunmers are so cool while Oblivion Dunmers are so lame, in Morrowind the males all have their cool dark raspy voice while in Oblivion they give them twinkle fairy wood elf voices. In Oblivion the Dunmer are way too nice. They aren't racist and grumpy. In Morrowind the dunmer always had funny things to say about the other races.

I couldn't agree with you more. What was Bethesda thinking when they created the races in Oblivion?! The Morrowind aesthetics may have had worse graphics, but their design was awesome! All of the races in Oblivion look fat and have stupid hairstyles. Why the hell would I want the hero of Cyrodill to be balding?!?!

Oh, I know, The Oblivion Dunmer were awful... The Argonians, too, I mean they aren't beautiful in the first place, but in Oblivion I was just dissapointed... Lol.

oh, my I remember loving the design of this armor... I didn't want to change clothes :XD: but then again, the Ordinator's were my favorite of them all.

And yes, Morrowind dunmer are far better from the Oblivion ones.

That's great. I agree, oblivion killed the dunmer (and gave them wood elf voices). They're meant to be slightly less evil drow (usually lawful neutral I'd say), for heavens sake!
