Oh well, the poll wanted him sleeping when I got started... which of course does not mean that I will not work on one or the other offered ones as well at some point.

Sleeping characters are always quite a challenge. Be it my medium or just in general - I find it hard to get done somehow. I am very happy though with how this one came out.

About the character:
Vermey might not look like it but he actually is a slave - just a very very expensive one: He is a special kind of "breed" that was enhanced genetically and also with magic, to be the ultimate soldier. He underwent a special training so he is the ultimate fighter, stronger and quicker than a normal elf and also he can stand a lot more pain and heals faster. There is not many of his breed and the noble houses basically stand in line to at least be able to buy one of these men, but not many can afford one.

While Vermey might appear terribly overpowered now, all this comes with a price for him: Him and his kind are highly addicted to a substance which makes them controllable and destroys the sex drive completely. If they cannot have this drug, they have the worst pain ever and suffer from aggression, paranoia and hallucinations. Those who buy a slave of this kind always also must buy this substance (or produce ot themselves) to keep their "pet under control".

Vermey is the bodyguard of a powerful noble woman and follows her everywhere to protect her with his own life if he has to.


Thank you for reading! And thank you for looking! I guess the title of this picture makes sense now, knowing a bit of his background. And yes, dark picture is still dark. Get over it. After all it is the underdark and it looks fine on both of my monitors. :nana:

Ah and that "thing" on his hand there is a very unique ring with a little super sharp blade on top. LIke this he is always armed as he can slice throats with a single punch with that thing. ;)

DAZ Studio 4.6 render with Photoshop painting. Character is my own.

Listened to this one pretty much nonstop while making this: youtu.be/u-JXy2-wS9c

I really love your drawing skills. I stumbled upon your gallery while looking for pretty Mer for our guild's background picture. Sadly your pictures are too... erm, intimate, to match my needs, so I didn't even ask (yet), but if you ever feel the overwhelming urge to draw a badass Dunmer mage about to rip someone's intestines out or set them on fire, I'll be the first to flatter you as long as you say okay ;)
