Saint George the Dovahkiin by Luke-the-F0x Saint George the Dovahkiin by Luke-the-F0x
This was supposed to be done for St.George's day a few weeks ago but it got delayed. This took me over a month to do and Its heavily inspired by playing Skyrim for 3 months. (from Christmas Day to early April.) When I fought the evil Dragon Alduin I wondered if this what the fight between George, the Patron Saint of England & the Dragon who was probably theatening England was like, what if St.George was a Dovahkiin (Dragonborn) as well and had the power of the Dragon shout? So I made St. George Resemble a warrior from Skyrim wearing the armour featured in the game and made the Dragon as powerful and theatening as Alduin himself who could annihilate all of England! So I hope you like it and er.. happy overdue St. Georges day for us English folk?

Influenced & inspired by The Elder Scrolls V:Skyrim by Bethesda.

yes i totally can see it, think of how the people of
england felt as they heard as the thundering of George
and the dovah's thu'um in the distance.

think as George stood his ground sword ready
as the dov came at him with gnashing teeth and fiery breath.

sorry i got carried away with my imagination ^^;

yes you got it perfectly. I can imagine the epic fight, and how songs were sung and George was made England's Patron Saint afterwards. 
Glad you like it mate.

Heh, the armour was based on the Steel plated armour from Skyrim. I have actually got myself Oblivion DX from the Steam Winter sale that has all the DLC, so i'll be looking forward to that.

Completed it! I loved it all, such a great questline. I liked Serana alot as well but I cured her of vampirism without trying out Vampire Lord. :p
But the new dragons are kicking my butt.

woooah!!
you really out did yourself this time mate, this looks amazing!!
like the crusader cross on the cloth, reminds me of history of my nation, and the little details on the armor show lots of effort.

Outstanding Luke!

Yeah, the cross basically symbolizes the English Flag, and I did use references from the armour from Skyrim as well.
Thanks mate, glad you like it.

look at all those photoshop effects, its almost as if you try TOO hard :XD:

kidding off course. This is actually a pretty good piece, rekindled my interest in the game once again (put the game aside for a moment because I got sick of the weak enemies mauraders and bandits....only to go outside and be charcoal within a minute by an ancient dragon, fuck!

I like the poses you gave the characters, it reminds me of another picture but I forgot which one XD

Yeah, i had inspiration from a Digital Fantasy Art mag we got over here called 'Imagine FX' which has CDS of Photoshop brushes, tutorials ect.. Really helped me make this piece.

Yeah, I usually had trouble with Draugr Deathlords especially when they can shout your weapons off. Oh yeah did you go with Imperial or Stormcloak? I went with Imperial meself.

As for the poses, I suppose they may have been taken from Alduin's wall which was in the original teaser.

Thanks very much Hy, glad you like it.
