Your version looks a lot more,authentic.I always thought the Ratway looked kind of empty,this is kind of what I had hoped it looked like,at least a basic outline of what I expected.

The only thing I don't like about the Thieve's Guild is that I can't marry Brynjolf.

Also, there is NOTHING wrong with being a mage-thief. *high five for mage-thieves!*

Battlemages can be wonderful thieves .. I think. But yeah, there's something really great about the storyline in the thieves giuld in Skyrim that Oblivion didn't have.. Personally, I think its way more exciting and serious than Oblivion - but thats probably just because the people have become less scary and monster-like!
I haven't finished Thieves Giuld yet but I also have The Dark Brotherhood to dedicate myself to ;)

I love the thieves guild, only got the game the other day though so I've only done mage's college, companions, and thieves guild.

That looks exactly like the ratway, cept it's not spazzing my computer with lag lol. Great job, love the feel of it.

Thieves guild is easily my favorite guild in Skyrim (was my second favorite in Oblivion). I love the Nightingale armor at the end, and I'm currently leveling up my Khajiit before I join. But first to the Bards College!

Shit dude, I know. I started off the game being like, "for once, I'm not going to play a sneaky assassin character!!!" I wanted to play this honest, nine divines-worshipping warrior guy. But goddamn. I ended up joining the Dark Brotherhood and Thieves guild, becoming a werewolf, and have been spending most of my time hunting down Daedric quests. Why, Bethesda. Why.

Your landscape/environment paintings are always so great. I really like the colours in this one, definitely feels damp and dark like the Ratway.
