Falmer by Mavrosh Falmer by Mavrosh
A male Falmer.... showing this race before they have been enslaved by the Dwemer. This species has a very tragic background story, feel free to read it here [link] (It starts to get really interesting after the table, starting with "background".).

I was keeping the mutated Falmers in mind when making his face. The cropping of this picture is sort of bad for showing it but his head shape was inspired by the head of the poor mutated Falmers of present times. I imagined their skin to be snow like (I mean, they are called "snow elves") and super smooth and almost like porcelain... and the high key lighting sort of blew away his skin details, underlining the look I was going for.

Thank you for looking" I could not sleep and now we have morning again already.... gonna try and catch a few hours of sleep now.

Rendered with DAZ Studio 4 and hair painted with photoshop. Lore this was based on by Bethesda of course. Man, they have the most amazing lore for their games!

I think it's safe to say they may one day evolve or change as soon as they start settling on the land.........that'll most likely happen during the collapse of civilization and when they take the opportunity

If you were to mod an additional race using this as a model....that would be amazing

I figured the Dwemer were cool. But it turns out they're just smart jerks >:(

Oh my heavens! Those eyes are just...incredible! I love how strong his features come off even though they have a touch of female beauty. The detail of his hair comes off as probably so soft to the touch. I simply love this character!!

Oooooooh! Very good depiction, I love it! Exactly how I pictured them. It really sucks what happened to them.

Might you also be making an image of the Chimer? (The 'dark elves' before their skin was turned dark and their eyes red.)

A gorgeous looking Snow Elf. And if they looked anything like this before they became
the twisted monstrosities, the Falmer, then it is an even greater tragedy!

Hmm when I saw the title for this I thought it said father..
Anyway the history of the Falmer is quite interesting tragic and twisted though as well, I love how you portray him here before the downfall.

I'm not sure if it's just me but lately the eyes you make are oddly tilted in a creepy way ^^; i'm not sure if you planned it to be intentional or not

wow, he looks like A-Ha's Morten Harket. I'm not incriminating or anything. sure it was coincidence (not copycat resemblance). very beautiful. well, I always knew Harket have non-human beauty so it actually makes sense that someone see elves similar to that.

I have always been so intrigued and inspired by this long forgotten race!:love: Their tragic history (though it was not always like this) has made me want to learn even more about them and their culture...their way of life,before they were turned into the poor abominations they are now. And here you are bringing them to life,in all their glorious attractive splendor!! :iconloveloveplz:

Beautiful. I won't read the link yet because I know there are still some things I will learn in Skyrim that I just haven't gotten to yet lol. But when I DO get to the end, I'll come back and check out that link. :P
