A Watch of Nightingales by The13thBlackCat A Watch of Nightingales by The13thBlackCat
Guess what a group of nightingales (as in, the actual bird) is called?

A watch.

Isn't that just fitting? Gives me an excuse to draw these weirdos being all awesome and stuff, too. Other than just because I like punishing myself, anyway. Nightingale armor has a ridiculous amount of details and it can suck my dick for that reason, seriously. -ahem-

Mist is a bitch to paint, for the record. And I am never drawing a Nightingale bow again as long as I live. Try to ignore the craptastic excuse for a background; luckily I can legitimately smear black all over it and call it a night. >> I guess this is the Twilight Sepulcher; that's about the only reason they'd all show up in their Batman gear ninja suits Nightingale armor looking for a fight anyway, I suppose. So someone's shit is about to get ruined. And I had considered including Gallus in here because he's a pretty cool dude, but it seemed busy enough as-is and I didn't wanna draw ANOTHER Nightingale-in-armor if I could help it. But then I guess he's kind of there anyway, huh? With all the shadows and what-not.

I am way more amused by the shape of the girls' ears under their hoods than I should be.

I was so tempted to title this Nocturnal's Angels. :|

in my opinion worth it

You know, I've always wondered what Khajiit ears would look like under a hood. Consider that question answered.

Love the way the bow and mist looks.

I love this, especially because when I play Skyrim I play as a female Khajiit.

Love the mist effect and your detail on the armor is quite fascinating!

Hehe, thanks. :P I hate that mist so much. The armor is nice, though, but just looking at it makes me hate the idea of ever doing it again.

Fair enough. Just looking at it, I totally understand your feeling of, "I'm fortunate turned out good. . . . because I'm never drawing that again!" XD
