More silk today. Ugh. The ‘bridge’ dress is going to need some mesh work.  Still working color toning and normals.

New texture base for the Naihaan Dress. Changed some UV, and alpha tested in game.

Changed the scale of the bodice pattern back to match the skirt. Think this is better…..

Possible “Alt” outfit for Leila. Texture base. Only got a base done today for skirt & top. Haven’t finished toning/ or layer details yet – so no new normal either – hence a bit flat! LOL!

Here’s Kendo 2’s construction of the small dwelling for the pair in Solitude. I LOVE this! It’s exactly the type of space I’d think of for a pair of merc types who spend more time on the road than at home, and there’s a really great imaginative back-story here (and an Easter Egg!) that tie things together perfectly!

I think this will be the final version for silver. I’m fairly happy with the gold as is for now.

Redesigned the UV and did this:

Started a crown for the Heilyn NPC. This one I did from scratch in Gimp just using the 4096 UV layout and some jewelry elements I had. Need to do some more work, and i may go back and repaint it without a bump map and just shading to see if that makes the ‘enamel’ parts come out better.

WIP – Fire & Ice Followers

 

Well, we got all our permissions approved – so that’s a go! Now some tweaking of mash-up textures, possible additional gear, and AI checks with the testers!

I’ll eventually be posting the testers shots here as well so you can see the mod in various ENB’s/no ENB’s different lighting, etc.

Mesh needs to be scaled (all 40 fuqing pieces of it! LOL! May will have fun with that!) and moved, and I need to finish getting a base texture for the metal before moving onto the gems, and making a variety of color-ways.

Working on this as I want to make a less ‘satiny’ heavier base for my trims to go with

1st base for the red version. Needs toning, etc. and will probably Nif off the sleeve & long tail on the belt to match the blue.

Updated all 3. Now detail work begins….I hate normal maps! LOL!

Should I do a stand alone plug-in for these, or just texture re-placers for the original mod?

Actually – I guess I should for us, as I’m using Drox’s mesh edit for the belt. So I’ll ask Drox, and if it’s OK – I’ll do a plug-in and be sure people know to thank/credit Naihaan & Drox for the mesh!

Experimenting with this. It’s a mess. I’d like to refine this for Njeri, but we’ll see how it goes. It’s a shame Bethesda did such a crap job on these textures – even the ‘hi-rez’ 2048 one is awful!

enb 2014_08_31 19_01_19_92 enb 2014_08_31 13_17_02_10

Reasonably happy with the shirt and vest. Still need to deal with the pants and leather bits.

  1. It’s a shame right? I too came back from Skyrim after taking a break from it. I do remember one incident that might have caused you some heat from one other modder. I used you’re retex over the “author’s” retex because it was so dark that it sucks the light around it. It was may favorite because you’re retex has way more color and detail, and it was not too dark.

    Anyway you’re work has always been amazing and it sucks that I can only admire them here and not ingame. I’ll always be a fan, thank very much.

  2. Hey! I was wondering if you would allow me to use some of these textures privately? I’m just really inspired by your work. 🙂 You always seem to have great textures. If not, where did you learn to retexture? I hope you don’t get asked this a lot. D: There are a few tutorials online, but I don’t know what ones are best.

    Thank you!

    • Hi selenameeka, apologies, but after what I went through with releasing things publicly, both maymay and I decided not to do it again ever. I have a very small group of friends, like Isleen, who I can trust implicitly and with whom I occasionally share things. Outside that group, no. I’m gratified you enjoy my texture work, but I’m unwilling to venture outside my limited context anymore.
      Texturing, in as far as what I enjoy doing, is not difficult, I mostly taught myself using Gimp, PS, and trial and error. (Hell, I don’t even use a tablet!) So I’m unfamiliar with the tutorials out there. I’d find some that utilize Gimp, as that’s free and thus a good place to start? After you get some basics you can change up to PhotoShop if you want…

      • Thank you for your honesty! I don’t know what happened (I had stepped away from gaming for a long time due to real life and I get back and a lot of my favorite modders had left), but I’m sorry it hurt you in such a way. D: Like I said before, I understand backlash. I just didn’t realize you had such a terrible situation. I do have GIMP, I’m just starting to really play with it. I have Photoshop and paint.net as well. I’ll see what I can come up with. At least I’m in the right direction! 😀 Thank you, again. 🙂

    • Thanks. Sorry, but no, I had enough of “public” and Skyrim years back. As did my mod partner and others. It’s sad. I’d love to share, but I remember all the negativity and viciousness that brings. I really enjoy doing textures, but the only way to keep it fun is to do it just for me.
