I heard that creature concepts were needed a while back, and I think that there was some talk of redesigning the swamp troll to fit with the established oblivion and skyrim troll anatomy and general feel. I think the idea was to keep the creature that we have designated as "swamp troll" right now and rename it as something else. I could be mistaken though. Either ways, here's a troll from the blackmarsh borders that I'm fine with TR using as a creature concept.

Great stuff Nalin.
It looks like a really nasty beast, which fits in well with the other creatures, imo.
With a good model, animation and sound this could be quite scary at night or in a dark cave.

This is great, Nalin -- dark, ugly and natural. The thing feels like it lives there and you are intruding on its territory. We need more monsters like that!

On another note, do we have a thread in which we collect concept art we have agreed to be worth modelling? Because I do remember several other good concepts (such as essentially everything by Crucifigo, possibly some work of LiberumAvis), and if a modeller really comes along one day...

I started on this one back in 2011 after being so disappointed with the Dunmeri stuff (or total lack thereof) in Skyrim. I've been sorting through lots of old art and figured that the idea would work pretty well for the Redoran living in the Velothi mountains, so I worked it up a little and then ended up starting from scratch again. Here's the WIP:

Nice to see you around again, Nalin. Your concept art is always appreciated. For a general overview of what kind of creature concepts we're interested in currently, I suggest reading gro-Dhal's notes on creature design and daedra design. I look forward to seeing what else you might come up! Smile

Out of curiosity, I remember from browsing the Province Cyrdoiil forums back in the day that you were working on an alternative body replacer for Dunmer. Did that ever get off the ground?

Thanks Yeti, those links are very helpful.

The mer body replacer was finished but never released. I'm sure I still have it somewhere but it's not something I've even thought about for a long time now, it's probably on an external hard drive somewhere.

Update on the Velothi mountain Redoran.

The bonemold is either painted white (1) or stained darker and desaturated (2) Yellow bonemold against white snow isn't a great idea in terms of camouflage (and white or dark bonemold would just look cool) . There is less of it too, combined with more leather and furs.
