The Oblivion Gate (The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion) by KhajiitSawyer The Oblivion Gate (The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion) by KhajiitSawyer
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

     Помню ту осень 2005 года, когда я пришел к одному из своих друзей и увидел как он играет в одну игру, под непонятным, и почему-то мне показавшись французским названием "Oblivion". В тот же вечер я уже несся домой с записанным у этого же друга диском в предвкушении чего-то нового и неизведанного.
    Тогда это еще была полу-бета игры, за пол-года до нормального релиза, и уж конечно же без русской локализации. Первые недели приходилось со страхом изучать английские буковки ни понимая ни одного квеста, и самостоятельно исследовать неизведанные подземелья и земли в поисках приключений на мой хаджитский хвост (это уже позже стало возможным переводить ее через подключаемый модуль Promt и устанавливать "народный перевод"). 
     На тот момент я еще не подозревал, что игра на этом диске затянет меня на долгие несколько лет, перестроит мой разум и мои взгляды и изменит направление моей жизни. Звучит конечно странно и "по-задротски", но только благодаря "Oblivion" я полюбил геймдев, и только благодаря ей я работаю в игровой индустрии. Только благодаря ей у меня обострилась любовь к фентези и RPG.
     Итак, к чему же я это все пишу? Возвращаясь мысленно в далекий 2006-2007 год, я вспоминаю как отчаянно пытался найти хоть какую-то информацию о моей любимой игре, в тех, еще трудно доступных для меня интернетах. Вспоминаю как по крупице собирал тот скудный арт и скриншоты в разрешении 640х480. Это сейчас в google можно найти море картинок по "Oblivion", но тогда его практически не было вообще (и да, меня это жутко расстраивало). И вот по прошествии почти десяти лет я решился отдать дань этой игре, и тому времени. Я решил заполнить одну маленькую пустую ячейку в арте по этой игре, которого мне тогда так не хватало. А еще этой работой, размещенной в абсолютно свободном доступе, я хочу сказать спасибо.

Nice! Print it and hang it on the wall

UPD: Оу, ты русско говорящий, а я по привычке на английском комментирую (с переводчиком =D)

Спасибо) Я бы лучше настоящий витраж сделал, если бы умел)

(Да не страшно, тут иногда и иностранцы по-русски пытаются писать, и русскоязычные на... ином языке. Главное - моя понимать :) )

Этот размер был самым оптимальным для подачи работы без потери качества. Думаю, в исходнике он больше, но не намного (мой старый Photoshop громко ругался).
Правда давненько меня не покидает желание сделать "ремастеринг" этой работы в векторную графику, но пока что это только желание :)

"Beyond all nightmares I met my fate. A strange passage surrounded by Daedra. Scared I was with my hand on my amulet of Akatosh... I entered the Oblivion Gate." - a spin on "Demon's Gate" by Candlemass. I say this everytime I enter an oblivion gate in TES 4... yes, I literally say this aloud. What? :| (Blank Stare)

This is my most favourite Oblivion.. or maybe even one of my most favourite TES artworks I've ever seen!

I am absolutely in love with vector and polygon art and especially when it looks like a church window - is there any chance to get a little guide or a WIP or an explanation to how you've created this masterpiece?

Thank you!

Originally conceived as vector graphics, but due to the limited my knowledge did as bitmap. There is an idea in a short time in the transfer vector.
P.S. And I apologize for my English

Here is an attempt to show the process of work:

The little health/magic/stamina bars in the corner are a nice touch.
