Tribunal Triptych by armelien Tribunal Triptych by armelien
Mercy, Mystery, Mastery. Almalexia, Sotha Sil, and Vivec. Here are the three 'living gods' of Morrowind (or the three thieves of Morrowind, depending on who you ask).

I only went to Morrowind to take a picture of a guar, and I suddenly had the urge to do this. I had lots of nice nostalgic feelings about playing MW (which was better than OB in many ways) while doing this, so there will be more MW portraits.

First widescreen effort, first Morrowind NPCs (= two creatures + one bit of se(h)t dressing).

Full size: 1680x1024

The ending of the words is ALMSIVI.

And then only 'VI' remained for ALM killed SI and NE decided to kill ALM.

So now the ending of the words is...VI

Bury my bones in Vivec. Bury my armor in the Clockwork City. Bury my Blade in Mournhold. Let my spirit live on forever. My true home, the nation of Morrowind.

Wonderful job.

Morro is the best...
I couldn't stop but compare MW and OB...
Morro wins always.

I love the story of morrowind and how the gods went insane or corrupt.

Morrowind lore is awesome, I wish they would make a book out of it

uhm, I wonder why peolple makes Vivec with a red eye O__o ... he has both golden eyes. Even if he's cooler with a red eye, indeed XD
you did a great job. We can look at them without thinking they're aliens XD ...
there, maybe this is the only thing I REALLY don't like in Morrowind... the graphic... =P
armelien Featured By Owner May 20, 2008
Is it said in lore somewhere that his eyes are the same? I made one red to go with his dunmer half, but I didn't think that was contradicted anywhere. Is there a reference, because if it's stated somewhere in game lore that they are both golden I may have to change my piece to reflect that. (Wouldn't take long, just have to take one layer off).

I don't think they are actually aliens though, just very old Chimer which are only elves of another sort.

well, I didn't read anything that said that Vivec has got both golden eyes, or something like that. I just met him, and realized myself XD. But, to make any sense in the story he really should have a red eye in his Dunmer part...
armelien Featured By Owner May 21, 2008
Yeah, that's what I thought (about the dunmer eye thing). The Vivec model in game didn't really look at all how you'd imagine from how he's described so I just ... ignored the production team's art choices :)
SkyCendre Featured By Owner May 22, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
you did well XD. when I heard of him the first time, I imagined him more... uhm ... sexy XD
armelien Featured By Owner May 20, 2008
Oh sorry, ignore that last bit, I understand you now (bit slow, duurrrr).
armelien Featured By Owner May 19, 2008
Hi - thanks.

Yes I did, especially Vivec, which was basically a recolouring job. For some reason he was green and cyan orginally! I'm using a Better Bodies body for him as well, and I redrew their eyes - so Almalexia isn't wall-eyed any more, and Vivec doesn't look like a fish. The hard part was re-constructing Sotha Sil ...

I can't stand Almalexia either, but I've tried to portray her in her aspect of 'mercy' :)

I love Oblivion, but it can't match the feeling I got from Morrowind.

How nice! did you change a little the skin of the characters? they look more human =P ...

I love this game so much... the one I loved the best. I'm still playing at it, sometimes ^^"
and yes, it's better than Oblivion. even if Oblivion is a masterpiece, I think nothing will be the same as MW.
uh, Almalexia... that insane bitch... she killed Sotha Sil O__o ... for the crave of power. she tried to kill Vehk, too. She tried to kill the Nerevarine -_- ... Definitely, I hate her XD.
Sotha Sil is such an enigmatic character... I wanted to know him better, a pity he died so soon.
and Vivec... well, he's my favourite character in the game ^^"
