I got desperate, needed to paint something very badly.
I decided to paint a close-up to practice lips and other stuff the same time.
Sorry, I wanted it to look dark, so some of you may need to lighten your screens more to see anything, lol.


Heathcliff belongs to ~ArcaneChild
Oblivion belongs to BETHESDA

He looks great, especially his expression and eyes - they're full of character. This work is pretty amazing, especially because - at least for me - closeups are really hard to paint. Great job here : )
(But I can't stop laughing when I look at his face here - he looks pretty much like my RP character, Rayhe. Same facial features and expression I guess xD)

Tsk tsk, dunno if it will be distracting, but he is Zynaden's son :XD:
Believe or not, there's a proper story behind it all >XD

XD lol !
I couldn't ever guess this! And who's his mother??
I definitely want to hear the story! ...if you care to tell me, and if it doesn't bother you ^^"

I know, no one ever guesses it XD

Anyway, his mother is Relmyna Verenim, the insane dunmer woman from the Shivering Isles.
The thing is, Zynaden never was with her like that, I think. Relmyna only used his DNA and all the other things needed to make Heathcliff born. Heathcliff was born only to be her experiment, but Zynaden saved him when he was still a baby and took him to Cyrodiil, where he lost the baby.
Poor Heathcliff still got to take part in Relmyna's experimenting.

that story is crazy XD. I wonder how this came to your mind, Childy :XD: ! it's a wonderful story, really.
and why Relmyna (I liked that crazy jerk XD) wanted to make a guy with Zynaden's DNA ? and what was the experimenting about?
and why did Zynaden lose the baby... ?
hmm, Heathcliff must have had a truly intricating youth, poor guy :o ...

ArcaneChild Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2009  Student Digital Artist
Haha, crazy story indeed XD I came up with it slowly and part by part.
Well well, even I myself don't know why with Zynaden, but I suppose Heathcliff was supposed to serve as a guinea pig for Relmyna to try how she could mutate and re-form a normal living body. For example; Heathcliff has a snake like tongue and he can survive from fatal situations. And he still lives, even if his heart was cut out ;3
Zynaden lost him when he got to Cyrodiil. He was wounded and totally exhausted. As he lay unconscious on ground, a traveling smuggler of mine found Heathcliff and took him with him, as he thought Zynaden was dead.

that's just great XD.
and poor Zynaden, it must have been horrible for him to wake up finding out that the baby wasn't there anymore...

mmmyah, I just love the whole thing. if i knew more about it, I would write a fanfiction... why don't you write something yourself =P ? Just, not to forget it >3.(yeah, I'm an annoying jerk, I know XD)

Oh, but Zynaden didn't survive either... For an unknown reason he was thrown into the Imperial City prison for 19 years! He got released though.
During that time Heathcliff first lived in the chapel of Leyawiin. He hated it there though and left to live alone when he was old enough. Then he found himself murdering a beggar and was recruited to Dark brotherhood. He was a lunatic from the beginning, but in there he totally was driven nuts XD

I'd totally write a fic.. But the thing is, I'm a lazy writer. I have one fic of my other Oblivion character in progress and Zynaden's lost diary in progress... ^^;
