Alright watchers, I need your help with something very serious.

Recently on there has been a mod on the Nexus that has jumped to the top 5 files of the week (currently) within a short amount of time called "Bear - In Memory of Taylor"…?

This mod was made by Sjogga by request of a fellow Skyrim player in memory of his brother Taylor who passed away.
It adds a small shrine near Riften dedicated to Bear, Taylors character in Skyrim, who can be seen as a ghost along side his follower.

Now a small request was made by the author of this mod, to add screenshots of this shrine, and of course I am all too willing to answer such a call.

However anyone who watches me knows that I am notorious for my unwillingness to pick just one image, as I like all and sometimes can't decide.

Henceforth I need your help in selecting a fitting image to add to the mods page, which totals to 9 images. The image you help me pick will undergo a little bit of editing on my part and I will then submit the unedited and edited image to the mod authors page.

I really, really, REALLY hope you all take your time to look at the images and tell me which one you think should be the one I submit as a tribute to our fellow Skyrim gamer.

The image I plan to edit will also feature the lyrics from the song Departer by Katatonia, a song that fits extremely well with this and was also written under similar circumstances; as a memory to a lost loved one.

The Images in question:
Departer I by Jowain92 Departer II by Jowain92 Departer III by Jowain92 Departer IV by Jowain92 Departer V by Jowain92 Departer VI by Jowain92 Departer VII by Jowain92 Departer VIII by Jowain92 Departer IX by Jowain92

Thank you again for your time.


Since many of you favor nr 4 I've decided to use it, however I've also chosen to use nr 9 for the lyrical image, as the dark background and lack of characters will help lifting the lyrics of Departer forward much better.

Thank you all again for your feedback, you are all wonderful people.

I'm just your ordinary person, I joined because I felt that I needed a place to show my works (not very mind-boogling amazing though mind you) and I have been stuck here ever since.

I take an interesting in writing, designing and would jump at the chance to do some voice acting, it is something I really like.

Well, that's for the bio take care :)

Haven't gotten around to favoriting anything yet, but I do want to say that the models are gorgeous and the expressions you give them look fantastic. As I spend the majority of my gallery taking Skyrim related images with expressions and similar I can relate very much to it, not entirely the same I know, but similar :)

Thank you very much for the compliments! :aww:

:omg: Wow! Looked at your gallery... Lots of awesome stuff you have. You are quite talented. What do you use to create such beautiful artwork?
Jowain92 Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Student Writer
Beautiful? Naw thank you.

However this isn't some super amazing program with models you customize yourself, it's just good old The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, however with a tons of mods working in the background to change the lightning, look on some characters, the weather, armors etc etc

A couple of pose mods as well of course, the whole process isn't too difficult ones you learn it and doesn't become that impressive once you know the hows and whys, so that's why I sometimes take the time to design custom cells and such for photoshots :)

Hey haha. Been a while since I've been around your stuff. But I have a favor to ask of you, so I'll get to the point. Recently, I got Skyrim for the PC and that Miraak follower mod and I have that problem you first had when you were trying to customize your Miraak. It was something like how none of the Nord facial features were attached to Miraak's custom NordRace. I would be grateful if you could teach me how you got custom textures to work with the Miraak mod. I know you only used a face texture on your version of Miraak, but I want to go the whole nine yards by adding eyes, scars and complexion from other mods.

It's cool if you aren't sure how to do the eyes or scars and what not, but I feel your knowledge in this will be a push in the right direction.

Anyway, thanks in advance!

Gave it a shot again and no, you cannot make an add-on for the Miraak follower mod, you'll need to use the CK to edit the mod itself directly, it'll just revert to use the default face otherwise.

But I seriously hope that people won't look to the look I created for Miraak as the "one to always follow" there are plenty of ideas on how he might/should look like, so I'm positive to see what others make, indeed I too am doing edits to the current textures I have to see if I can't improve or create something entirely different.

Oh don't worry, I got my own version of Miraak lol. However it isn't as simple as I would like. He's got like inhuman, demonic eyes and scars and burns from various mods. My problem is adding them to my Miraak via the CK. I assume I'd have to load up the cosmetic mods in the CK along with Miraak himself, but that's the part I have trouble with. I mean I can change his hair and beard to the vanilla ones, but when ever I give him custom eyes it reverts back to plain blue eyes. And the scars don't even show up, mind you the one I'm using for burn scars comes from XCE- Scarface which utilizes the complexion slider instead of scars.

Long story short, idk the actual process of adding permanent, custom features to Miraak. Kinda like what you did with the Dragon skin.

That what you're trying to do is not easy, can't help you with the scars, as I've had trouble with it myself (but I might try to figure it out at some point), in my Miraaks case I stripped the exact textures I wanted from those mods and manually added them to the skyrim textures folder, then I created new textures in the CK and added them to an existing pair of eyes, created a new eyeset from them.

However that's another matter, here's the problem: DLC2MiraakRace is not added to the necessary formlist that enables a race to use speicifc eyes/hairs onto them.

You'll go to Miscellainous in the CK, and select the FormList tab, then you search "Headparts" this will give you a list of all the Headpart lists for all races. Miraak is part of neither of these for some reason. You'll need to add DLC2MiraakRace to HeadPartsAllRacesMinusBeast, HeadPartsHuman, HeadPartsNord, HeadpartsNordandVampire and HeadPartsHumansandVampires.

This should allow his race to gain access to all Hairs, eyes and beards accessable to Nords, as that's the race he is built from. Also scars NEVER show up when just loading the head in the editor, but they do in full body preview.
I think I did a successful character using the XCE scar mod, but I don't remember how and where that mod is now. However to edit Miraaks own race he needs to be part of the FormList that Nords and Human races are part of. Doens't change his gameplay or anything else, just makes him able to be customized with both Vanilla and custom assets.
