Here’s Dalamus, my Dunmer who keeps getting resurrected at various stages of his life. Since I now have Chargen Extension’s sliders in my arsenal, I could finally make him as young as he should have been the first time I played with him! I swear, it’s like every time you try to make a male Dunmer in vanilla Skyrim, they always end up looking at least 60. Except in Dunmer years that’s probably more like 257. You know how it is.
Finally got around to trying out the Chargen Extension morphs with RaceMenu. These two characters were both created using those morphs. The goal was the see how human I could make them look. Obviously the Dunmer’s head was a bit easier to work with, but I really liked the end result for both of them. In the very least, it should be a lot easier to make lighter-looking Orcs now!
Testing out my new small Intuos that I’ll be carrying around with my laptop from now on. Feels pretty much the same as my bigger Bamboo that I use with the desktop, which is totally what I was hoping for.
I thought you all deserved some original material instead of all the posts I’ve been making with other people’s shots, so here’s my latest character, Thorbalt Whiteblood, fresh out of the wilderness after being left for dead. He just arrived at WIndhelm. Apparently I’m not that great at making up Nord names. Happy New Year!
I’m always bothered when equipment doesn’t fit the character in the way that you would expect it to. Oversized clothes can be fine, but the physics of the game doesn’t allow for sagging billows of cloth or flapping lengths of leather, so instead it just ends up defying logic by sticking out in the air like a sore thumb. Notice the changes in back of her scarf and the vertical belt over her stomach.
Here’s another example of how I sometimes will recreate sections of equipment and body parts to fix major clipping in the shot. Pay attention to his shoulder and the bottom of his gauntlet when flipping back and forth.
I love the shots where I get to recreate sections of the image due to clipping. For this one is was the mostly just the edge of the cloak that was cutting into the breast, but something I have to fill in sections of armor or even recreate fingers or ears that get cut off by weird equipment conflicts. The resulting image is so much nicer when everything is properly fitted.
People seemed to like the first couple I showed off here, so I suppose I’ll keep posting them on both! Obviously you’ll only see the tame stuff on here, so if you’re interested in the others, you’ll have to hunt down my other blog. Everything has been posted under #skyrim, though, so it shouldn’t be that hard to locate.
