Reachmen faces

Postby french ninja » Thu Aug 30, 2012 4:19 am

A topic dedicated to the topic of designing faces and/or hair for the Reachmen, as per Yeti's suggestion that we need to talk about this.

When designing Reachmen, we ought to keep two things in mind
1) Minimize work, so instead of a completely new race, they are just bretons
2) Minimize the chance that the player mistakes a Reachman for a Breton. The Reach with have plenty of both.

Therefore, I think the best way we can go about this is similar to the difference between settled dunmer vs ashlanders. Ashlanders have very unique names, several unique hairstyles, their clothing, etc

Most Reachmen seem to have face tattoos. Here are some examples from TES V:

I have done a search of various peoples and the way they design their hair for possible inspiration. Ancient germans, scythians, mongols:

Of course, a lot of the shaggier breton haircuts would be fine, but a few new ones couldnt hurt

I totally forgot about this thread. I'm going to take some of these ideas into account when working on faces and stuff.
