About This Artwork
I am a fan of Skyrim. I’ve been playing it for years on and off. I started out on the Xbox 360, then some on the Xbox One, and now, on the Nintendo Switch. I like the portability, and keeping the console in standby mode means I can load into the game super fast, which helps keep me immersed.
I’ve been playing as a female knight named Odela. After helping Whiterun with the dragons, I got Lydia as a housecarl. I admire this shieldmaiden, with her loose flowing brown hair, strong stance, and matter-of-fact nature. I felt like drawing some of my favourite Skyrim girls, and she immediately sprung to mind.
I drew this design within a circle with the future intent of making it a series of stickers.
