Dagoth Ur by curtsibling Dagoth Ur by curtsibling
The last in my little trilogy of fanart, this time I
decided to sketch the arch-villain from a video
game called Morrowind. Interesting baddie.

Done with inks and digitally coloured.

In Great House Dagoth, he's not. In 6th house.....

Let's just say that he's one scary motherfucker.

Most people don't know that you basically betrayed and killed Dagoth Ur in a past life as Lord Nerevar. It's sad... Dagoth Ur is not as bad as he's made out to be! Vivec is technically worse, as is the case with Almalexia and Sotha Sil.

Letrune Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2014
Well, Nerevar, Almalexia and Vivec did. You MIGHT be Nerevar reborn, but you might be a self-made hero or even just fitting some parts and having the prophecy shoehorned around you.
This is what I love in Morrowind, such roleplaying chances. :3

Agreed. The disapperence of the Dwemer, the morality of certain NPC's/factions. These things are never obvious or directly answered. I love it.

recently I've been playing deus ex human revolution and or diablo 3 :p but that face reminded me of alot of funs times in good ole MW. like my favorite muck crab 10,000 dollar vendor just outside of the major city. or the random finding of the iceris flight spell from a person falling from the sky. you remeber those points?

I wish Ur had more spoken lines in-game. His voice actor did the character justice just as you do justice to his visage, serjo.

A twisted genius, but he lost sight of the small people in his mythic struggle to dominate...

Indeed a mad god...:)

No, a true Madgod would make his own kingdom and have everyone in it worship him with yarn and lettuce. He became overwhelmed with power, but still wanted what was best for his people, unlike Sheogorath, who simply wanted cheese.

Is it just me or does Morrowind have one of the deepest and least black vs. white stories in videogames? When I was playing it for the first time, I expected it to be a typical "save the world from Evil" story, with Voryn Dagoth as the cliche insane mage/demon/whatever... but then I started reading all the in-game books and the more I knew about the Dunmer history, the more I doubted whether the Nerevarine is the good guy here. And when I killed Dagoth Ur, I felt dirty. He was mad, but he was a... patriot, nevertheless.

Very well put! Yep - The god Vivec and his buddies in the Tribunal were very dubious characters...
At least, Vivec owns up and condemns himself to death by giving the player Wraithguard, etc.

MW is the last of the great classic RPG games - Just my opinion...:D

Agreed! It's a pity Oblivion did not reach its greatness, but oh well. I guess the attempts to reach mass audience are to blame for the lack of depth in RPGs nowadays. Dragon Age: Origins comes to mind, it was called a "return to the roots", but I found it rather shallow and disappointing.
Personally, I'd love to see another Daggerfall. Maybe just a bit less random, and a little smaller.

curtsibling Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Quite agree! Daggerfall was the supreme king of sandbox RPG...!
Despite the bugs and flaws, it had a world that really just took
over your life! I recall walking about in game, it was woods in
at winter, and I realised I would be playing this game for YEARS!

:D

He's one of the best fantasy game baddies I can remember - The 6th House was a well-concepted idea in MW...
Very HP Lovecraft-inspired...Much deeper than the "demon invasion" from Oblivion...:)

Now THIS is Dagoth Ur! It might just be me, but I don't like fan art that pretties him up. He looks the way he should in this: wretched, twisted, but at the same time powerful and, in a way, majestic. That overconfidence that dripped off his every word is captured perfectly here. Great work!

I reckon he like an Ash Vampire...:)

Another interesting angle would be that he is a
handsome Dark Elf, and his insanity makes him
think he is disfigured and ugly...A pity his mask
cannot be grabbed in the game...!
