New Altmer PC or Ancano Replacer?

Ancano is a strange bird in that I’ve wanted to make a replacer for him for a while, but there’s been no real need to. I don’t often do that quest, the story detailing him and his downfall at the hands of my crafty little illusion mage has long since been written and acted-out. But I figured why not give it a try now since I’m climbing the walls?

Problem is, I think he might be slightly too nice for an NPC whom you speak with twice and then murder.

And I’ve never RP’ed a Thalmor agent before. What do you think?

It’d be cool to play an older person for once. I dunno! Willing to share preset/sculpt if someone wants it.

A holiday present from me to you will post tomorrow at 10am CST! Right now I’m dropping off the planet for a week or so for reasons. I hope you all have a great weekend, regardless of what you celebrate(d), or if you celebrate(d) anything at all!

Happy Whatevers!

    Hehehe. I do LOVE that hair that you have for him.

    I just hacked TM Thalmor and follower clones to save time to get mine, since Ancano's gonna feature prominently later. Not making mine quite as old, though he's not young.

    I posted a pic of how I did him on that mod's pics– using a mashup of skins on him based on RWoS and uh, uh… hm. Well crap, I need to go look.

    I have so little patience towards blending lately. I want to use RWoS's face diffuse for Sabrael, but I'll need to make it work with some other body skin and you know I kind of think Skyrim's steadily pushing me towards madness lol

    Anywho, here's the sculpt.!JXZDVJzZ!0i2UslMCWPs9iTHIkuRNKnNZ1AfGGUFX-8r8TNKKUy8

    Nothing else is included. The hair is part of a larger, personal mod of mine I don't mind sharing, either, but send me a PM if you want that one. Drama, you know.

    Holy shit! I wouldn't kick him out for eating crackers in bed, er, something like that. Ya know what I mean. XD

    Thanks for the preset present πŸ™‚ Since it's a preset, he wouldn't have to be Ancano, he could be… anyone…that you don't enthusiastically kill lol

    Why, whatever COULD you mean??? ;P

    Yeah, I think I'm going to make him a representation of an old friend of Rei Ginsei's…who may or may not be showing up at some point? Tee-hee… πŸ˜‰

    And you and yours have a happy (holi)day, yourselves! πŸ™‚

    When you get back, Furb– Tempered Skins (on the SSE page/the Oldrim version (which is what the mod author RWoS says to use)… Does NOT work with SOS, there are definite gaps and a little clipping, but likely fixable. I managed to get it edited (I just did a little paste in Gimp) so there's just a little distortion directly under the buttocks at the texture join, and the missing triangle on the upper thigh crease is eliminated. There's also a weird amount of shine in places and I'm not sure what's up with the nipples. I tested with the diffuse only as the other maps had other things wrong.

    I already left a note on the Tempered Skins page and hopefully the author will post his uncompressed files? We'll see.
