Ascended Sleeper by DSiwek Ascended Sleeper by DSiwek
"You think what you do has meaning? You think you slay me, and I am dead? It is just dream and waking, over and over, one appearance after another, nothing real. What you do here means nothing." -Dagoth Reler

These guys seriously gave me nightmares :dummy:

Is that an Ash Statue in his lap? :giggle:
Else, really nice work. I wonder if that is a normal Ascended Sleeper or is it one of Dagoths~ ;)

I always wondered how these guys mutated... but then again, I probably don't want to know. I always thought that the Ash Zombies were the freakiest, but the Sleepers creep the shit out of me too. Glad I killed them when I did O_o

Great job.

Thanks! I don't think the game ever explicitly states where they come from, but some in-game clues have led to some theories on it :XD:

I hated these guys when I first started to face them. I actually had a nightmare or two with them in it haha

Haha, perfectly understandable ;) I can't think of many video-game monsters that gave me chills quite like these fellows.

Love the work. I'm a volunteer working on a fan based port of the Morrowind game into the newer Skyrim game engine. We are creating fan-based art loading screens for the game and would like your permission to include this piece of art work and any others that are Morrowind related. Full credit will be given with link to DA profile. Its a free game made by Elder Scrolls enthusiasts. For details you can check out our website

Sorry for the late reply! Sure, you may go ahead and use this picture :) I don't really have any other Morrowind related art though. If you're referring to the Bosmer and Dunmer portraits, than I'm afraid I'll have to decline on those two, since there are model permission issues.

But go ahead and use this picture if you like :)

Cool, thanks. No problem on not being able to use the other two, the creepy ascended sleeper will help :)

THESE HORRIFIC VISIONS!!! They inspired nightmares... and eventually a wonder story involving my character's sanity. I see the ash statue!!! I commend your details!
