Tenebrous' Cel-Shading Art Thread

  • January 20, 2020

    Hallo folks! As the title succintly puts it, this will be a thread where I post my cel-shaded renders of Elder Scrolls Online characters. It's a complicated process, but so far the results have been really nifty. Check these out!

    Hah! Never noticed that similarity, nice catch. Anyhoo, I use DirectX ripping software to extract any models/textures currently loaded in the Elder Scrolls Online game client, then use GIMP to edit the textures and Blender for the lighting and rendering.

    I really like the Eveli one. That character needs to come back imo.

    Time to pull a Worm Cult and resurrect this, huh? Also available on the ESO forums at

    Avista Krexliantus, Imperial troublemaker and ambiguously-individual manifestation of my game experience

    Mirandsephona Aastril, vampiric ronin with a shipton of emotional trauma and barely-repressed sadism

    Tsetha-Mota, or 'Floating-Hunter', equal parts a stoned philosopher and a cunning Shadowscale assassin
    Thadnheli Chill-Ward, a tempest of righteous Nord fury in a very small and unintimidating package
    Domirah at-Mhorgten, a ruthless highwayman turned bitter prophetic Hero
    Vivec, the Warrior-Poet God-King of the ALMSIVI, gilled and blended in all the arts of the Starwounded East
    Psylende, a mutilated and very jaded healer who nonetheless remains steadfast in her compassion
    Kazadur-jo, formerly a dubiously-sanctioned necromancer, these days a washed-up drunkard
    Jeremyl Vethinam, a Dunmer wannabe-hero with more gold than brains
    Avista Krexliantus during the Jester's Festival; her costume is of some bizarre being she calls 'The Joker'
