I love the Gray Quarter! (I even married that Dark Elf who owned the pawn shop! Before I realized that was not the way to go...I really want to live there. >: )

Great, this work catches the spirit of the Gray Quarter even more than the "real" GQ itself. Kudos, your TES gallery is amazing!

Seeing this makes you want to kick on Ancester Gaurdian and give Ulfric a hug. Amazing work here.

I was wondering why this looked so ungodly familiar in the thumbnail until I saw the title. Great work :icongreatjobplz:

This reminds me so much of a painting my grandmother had from Mallorca, Spain. The composition of the buildings...the cobblestones...the line of the walkways...brings me right back to seeing it! Well...aside from the snow... ;)

It does look just like it! I love the Gray Quarter. My Dunmer just beat that racist punk Rolff's (?) ass in a brawl defending it.

Am i the only one who thinks that Windhelm in general would make a great TF2 (perhaps medieval) map?
Absolute props to this piece, you really captured the colors and atmosphere of the Gray Quarter.
