This is, uh, a really impressive piece of artwork.
Have you considered submitting to the Tamriel Chronicle?
Edit: I guess I should be more specific, huh?
I really, really like the almost - velvety texture. And the lighting. Wow. The eyes are remarkable, and the overall feel of this portrait - very real, yet still fantastical. Also, that bosmer is really, really, really hot.
This is really, really fantastic. He's stunning and I looove the feathers. You rendered his muscles extremely well and the palette over all is fabulous. My only bit of criticism is that his left pec (our right) seems strangely small, but I don't think it's really all that noticeable. I can't wait to see more.
