Taggcrossroad: Argonian Warrior by ReptileCynrik Taggcrossroad: Argonian Warrior by ReptileCynrik
GiftArt done for Tagg Crossroad from FurAffinity!

In fact, there’s not much more to add now… is it? ^^”
This is the character “Tagg” standing proudly and strong on a cold cliff – gazing over the lands during midnight.
Night… that’s the keyword here. I really was struggeling with myself whether to use a “night colour palette” or not. After all, the colours are now quite different from the original palette.
BUT since “Tagg” can be seen in bight colours and full light almost all the time, I decided to produce something rather unique this time. So, here you have it: a character at night – even if the colours are still too colourful… I don’t mind.

This is my “enhanced cartoon/anime style” – and I’m particulary proud of the dark metallic armor! ^_^
Hope you like it, buddy! :-)

NOTE:
Many people who love “Skyrim” or any “Argonian” for example, have connected my character “Reptile” with “Argonains”… and that is just incorrect.
THIS here is how I would draw an “Argonian”, guys – and “Reptile” is NOT one of them!!

ReptileCynrik Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012
Many people ask the same thing... that's why I've prepared this response in my journal/profile:

I don't do comissions or any kind of requests right now! And I do art trades only on very rare and special occasions. IF I agree to an
art trade with you, I insist that you do your part FIRST! I've made lots of bad experiences about this. Most people waited until I did my part (and I'm very fast and reliable!)... and then they didn't do their part. That's why you'd have to do your part first. Sorry.

There are no "open slots" for TRADES in this year. Maybe next one. ^^"
But you're right, I'm quite busy and have many plans... :-)

... and a job to do! That's where I'm going now.

The heads look somewhat similar, although your reptilians don't have horns or feathers the way Argonians do. I guess the tails are somewhat similar, but not very.

Yeah, it can be confusing how to draw them; the game series itself has them unable to use shoes in the 3rd game, but in games 4 and 5 they can again, after being able to in games 1 and 2 if I am not mistaken. I'm not criticizing, though. :D

I like the color palette choice here as it reminds me of a moon light night full moon to be precise. It is a nice pose set like the show of power and authority, in full armor and weaponry, speaking of which is complex, but looks more jointly movable than the normal armor types from like the medieval era; same for this creatures more built muscle tone. I like u background setting as well, it is that blue tit with the stars, but then their is also the rocky stands upon, sort of rocky bluff as I see it along with the hazy mountains and little grasses you threw in there as well nicely done. :) :thumbsup:

Great picture. Argonians were always my favorite race in the Elder Scrolls Series, because of their unique appearance and generally understated personality types. Altmer (High Elves) come as a close second due to their aloofness and intellectualism, reminding me of the Elves from Middle Earth in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Khajiit just annoy me, even though a lot of fans like them so much, because it seems they try too hard to portray them as "slightly feral" with the NPC dialog, when they're really just as tame as everyone else out there. Most of the other races in the series are genre stereotypes or just plain boring to me.

Well, I don't know them so well... and I didn't play SKYRIM or any part of the series, either.
And this is my first Argonian!! ^^"

You welcome. ^^ You aren't missing much by not playing the Elder Scrolls series, except for hours upon hours of aimless wandering in search of spell components or loot to sell so you can buy that shiny sword you'll only use once in the whole game... *yawn*
