You truly touched my soul with this comic Yescrying The atmosphere, the emotion... I just can't... There is so much beauty in it 03  Well done! 

Now that I think of it, there should really be a movie set in TES universe, it would be epic:happybounce:

TheMinttu Featured By Owner May 16, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Not the nerevarine, just my character, an old guy coming back home :' )
Weltraumfieber Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
tbh this brought tears in my eyes. I really hope that in the next TES games, the dunmer can return home

what song? the video's been deleted.
But yah, Vvardenfell is my home as well. Even after the Red Year, I'd still go back and make myself at home.

Agreed with Ostretch - would love to see more of this "last trip home".

I love this so much. <3

Do more of these, please!!

I've never even played morrowind and I still find this extremely emotional, amazing job as usual!
Bacxaber Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2014   General Artist
So like, how long do Dunmer live? I've heard ranges from 150-400.
Tracinya Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2014
"Katisha's face briefly wore the envious, wistful look humans got when contemplating the thousand-year lifespan Elves had been granted by the gods. True, few ever actually lived that long as disease and violence took their respective tolls. But they could. And one or two of them actually did."
- From the Real Barenziah, a book found in the Elder Scrolls games
Bacxaber Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2014   General Artist
That's vague, though. Weren't there only one type of elf early on, then they separated? Even if that isn't the case, that could be implying only one lives that long, not all three. Plus, they say in Skyrim that Altmer only live to be 700.

Real Barenzaih is a biography of Barenzaih, DUNMERI queen of Morrowind.

Hope I helped :D
Bacxaber Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2015   General Artist
You didn't, sadly.
TheMinttu Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I suppose 200-400 is pretty common.  Divayth Fyr is allegedly over 4000 tho.
Andr3w137 Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2014  Hobbyist
This is was quite heartwarming. I would love see a continuation of this short story though is unlikely but a man can wish XD. The colors are just beautiful and really set the mood for this. Wish I could return to Morrowind after the eruption of Red Mountain.
Mjoellnir117 Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2015
I hope there will be an expansion for one of the next TES in which you help the dunmer recolonize Vvardenfell.

THE COLURRZZZZ *cannot be intelligent too caught up in the amazingness of the art*

Sachio180 Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
wow. that a long time.
Dusceja Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2013  Student General Artist
I cannot describe in words what I feel. It's too much.
Wonderful, wondeful picture.
TallGabriel Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I've got a character in Skyrim I've dedicated to Solstheim, Nathyn Seran, who, well, in Morrowind, the master conjuration trainer was Methal Seran, in Oblivion it was Olyn Seran, and it has been theorised that they were brothers. So Nathyn is the third brother. And like the others he is a master of conjuration and enchanting, and back before the Red Year used Azura's Star, which had Almalexia's soul trapped inside (it's the largest soul in Morrowind and can only be trapped in Azura's Star) to enchant the already powerful artifact that is the Ash Mask of Vivec, giving him extended life and power. After this he leaves Morrowind and goes travelling. For over 250 years. Finally in 4E 201 after spending the last 30 years in the Jerall Mountains at the Azura Shrine there, he travels through Skyrim to Solstheim, due to reports of strange goings on, hoping to study daedric happenings on the island. And one I'd roleplayed his journey through Skyrim (including the A Night To Remember drunk quest with Sanguine), I travelled to Solsthem and when he arrived, this is pretty much it. Walking on ash again in Dunmer territory after over 250 years just... Home again.
Also I utterly love you forever for all your wonderful Elder Scrolls art.

I saw this while listening to…. I won't even tell you how much I cried.

Love it

I almost cried a little.

Vvardenfell, Morrowind, it's my home, too.
Stahlriven Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Very emotional piece.

I scrolled down the comic while listening the Nerevar Rising. In the end got hit by massive FEELS!

TheMinttu Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Yes, just as planned....
angry-green-toast Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013  Professional Filmographer
love this, omg every frame is gorgeous.
El--Fox Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013  Student Digital Artist
wow, it's awesome!

When I started Dragonborn,three days ago,I felt a great feeling of belonging...and when I heard this [link] I thought I was back home after a long time.
noxfoxArts Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Marry me! *ahem* This is awesome. As I said. We all want to get back there. Reading this with the main theme playing is thrilling for sure. The composition and narration is all fluid, the colors are beautiful as usual ...I only wish the font was a bit less classic and strict.
...This sky feels quite empty without a cliffracer at sight, uhm. I should play Morrowind again to remember how annoying they could be.
TheMinttu Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2013  Student Digital Artist
AH I'm glad you find the flow easy - this was actually experimentation with composition since I feel I've had trouble with it lately.
noxfoxArts Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I'd say it's only a bit harder on the second page, with the dialogs, but that's mostly because of the necessity to scroll down. If it was printed on paper it would surely flows nicely at first glance, here it's harder to view the whole pages one after the other :) But for the rest it's all nice and I like your choices, especially the top panel on the 4th page, in which Vadril's head is cut, allowing to focus more on the action. It's quite contemplative and it feels good to take the time to just there.
Velena-Gorosama Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
OMG, you made me feel home again too!...

I took it really hard when they destroyed Vvardenfell. And your comic now is like a beam of hope for the future.
I forgot it was not over yet with our homeland.
Thanks for reminding. :hug:
