For as much as I loved Oblivion, one of its strong suits was admittedly not its character creator. It was easy to make something that looks like the unholy spawn of the deformed devil, but it was way harder to make a hero that looked like halfway normal human being. Most of the time I just said screw it and went with a tiger head that was impossible to screw up.
Well Bethesda is trying to change that perception by released a series of new images that show just how diverse the new character creator can be in Skyrim. They have pages of intricately designed faces for each race in the game, meant to show that you have a wide range of options when it comes to molding your hero’s visage. We have the Nords above (my race of choice in the original), but all the other races are below with similar mockup. How many horns do you want on your Argonian? Two? Four? Six? Here, have a dozen.
Now, do they have different body types, or are they still sticking lizard and animal heads on plain old human bodies? I know, I know, never satisfied.
