The Destruction of Solitude by ghostfire The Destruction of Solitude by ghostfire
EDIT: Now with Wallpaper Pack!


And concept sketches:


My female nord dovahkiin... and no, this isn't spoiler-y, unless I've become significantly more precognitive. Dragons should be able to wreak in-town destruction post-intro!

Previous Skyrim art:


I have to give a lot of inspirational credit to malufenix's beautiful "The Dragonborn Comes" cover.

Many of the pieces from this gallery are available as prints through ghostfire.net or specifically at the ghostfire market.

Oh yeah :)
Someone just has to remake Skyrim larger with voxels for that to happen!
Voxels are that novelty thing in games that allow buildings to be properly destroyed, just like the heaps of bricks that they are!
"Game Logic" letting you chop off heads but not demolish a frail wooden door with a warhammer? Voxels will have that sorted out in less than 3 years, and no game attempting to be called respectable will be made without voxels after that. There's a few already hatching in Kickstarter.

My god, could you imagine if the Dragons could damage structures? I've had my Riverwood attacked twice already! Would there be anything left? I could see donating gold to help rebuild in the aftermath too.

@ProdigyRezz
By the looks of it, its inspired on ingame armor sets, not a direct copy :)
I'd say Fur armor and Scaled armor along with some extra touches which make it so superb (yet lore friendly) looking

Is the armor of your character in game? If not it's a shame because your character looks absolutely amazing!
