Karliah is one of my favorite characters in the game, but she had such a sad story. I've had this sketched out for months and finally decided to shirk my other responsibilities so that I could finish it. After the initial sketch, it only took me like three hours to paint, wut!?
I was inspired by this delicious stock which I also used for a reference: [link] so big thanks to for providing it! <3
This is beautiful. It's really bringing genuine tears to my eyes, because I really love Karliah's character. She didn't deserve what she went though. I love how you kept Gallus so ghostlike and blue, and the faint glow on Karliah's skin. Karliah looks wonderful too. Although, I wish Gallus had been just a touch more translucent. Just a touch.
But I love it. Well done.
the best time of the tragedy!
this and Mercer's betrayal, the appearance of Karliah!
