Ritual of the Ancestor Moths by KatherineOsika Ritual of the Ancestor Moths by KatherineOsika
Something about the way the moths were dancing about and the light of their magic played with Mavaanii's hair had caught Serana's attention. Perhaps reading the Elder Scroll could wait just a moment longer?


Just a little Dawnguard fan art. The character on the left is one of my Skyrim characters, Mavaanii Briitafiirlo. The character on the right is Serana, a vampire, and the main protagonist of the Dawnguard expansion. I really enjoy having Serana as a follower in the game, which since I usually hate the computer helpers, that's saying something. I felt that Mavaanii and Serana might have a connection, especially considering that both are immortal. Mavaanii has been mistakenly named the dragon born, which is not the case. She is a dragon named Briitafiirlo masquerading as an imperial named Mavaanii. Hense, Mavaanii Briitafiirlo.

I quite like how this turned out~ Well worth spending all day on… I learned a lot about doing backgrounds though. I just tried to keep the mindset that the background isn't as important as the characters and doesn't need to be as detailed. I think I've also decided that I like not coloring the line art. I tried that before but... eh, idk, it's alot of extra work and it doesn't even turn out that nice. Black is fine by me :P
