19-year old spends a year to create massive Skyrim mod
Behind Falskaar, a massive new Skyrim mod, and the 19-year-old who spent a year building itA new mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Falskaar, was released over the weekend, and it is quite a doozy. Falskaar adds almost 25 hours of content, a land mass a third the size of the original game, new characters, new voices, and dozens of quests. As impressive as it is, though, it’s nowhere near as impressive as the creative force behind it: Alexander J. Velicky, a 19-year-old gunning for a job with Bethesda with his first try at modding Skyrim.“I organized everyone involved, but the voice actors themselves recorded all the dialogue and submitted it to me,” Velicky told me. Though over 100 people contributed in some way, including composing an original soundtrack, Velicky took their contributions and plugged them into Falskaar himself. “I had some people help me out with a few models and textures, someone wrote a book or two for me… But otherwise all content was implemented, written and developed by me.”So how does a 19-year-old take the helm of a creative project of this size? Velicky wants a job. He graduated from high school over a year ago, and instead of finding a design school, he turned Bethesda’s Creation Kit into his classroom, spending 2,000 hours over the last year building Falskaar.“My dad was incredibly supportive and allowed me to live here, paying for living expenses and charging no rent,” Velicky says. “I was able to not go to school and not have a day job. Meaning, more or less, that Falskaar was my day job.”The mod is fully voice-acted by 29 voice actors playing 54 characters and the quality is much higher than most community-made content. “I’m still kind of shocked at some of the talent I got on the project… and every single one of them surpassed my expectations by leaps and bounds.”A massive dungeon, “Watervine Chasm,” may be Falskaar’s crowning achievement. It took Velicky three weeks to build and players report it takes an hour or two to complete. The community response has been overwhelmingly positive.“Falskaar isn’t perfect,” Velicky says. “I’m not an expert who’s been crafting game experiences for the last 20 years, so I certainly still have a lot to learn, and I always will. I’m always looking to learn and improve, and Falskaar was a huge chance for me to do this.”According to Velicky, Bethesda is aware that he’s out there, and he isn’t shy about putting his goals right out on the table. “The best way to show Bethesda Game Studios that I want a job there and should be hired is to create content that meets the standards of their incredible development team.”Falskaar is available now on Skyrim Nexus, and I encourage you to check it out.pcgamer.com

Not finished, and I don&#8217;t think I will&#8230;
Ugh, I spent too much time on it, and changed the style 3 times already. *Just wanted to train with lights, and draw my little Elvawen from my new game in Skyrim*

Feb 3

I finally re-installed Skyrim, and I was about to put again some mods (but not too many as before now @_@” *Don’t want to kill my computer and my game again) and I just saw that I (well, my brother since I borrow his Steam account) had Dawnguard (FUCK YEAH) and even a DLC I didn’t knew, HeathFires, and also something which looks like it put the game on HD I look forward to see how it is but I’m happy to have surprises like this TnT
(Yep, I’m easily happy, and now the Jungle Book song comes in my mind, but only in French… *search* “The bare necessities of life will come to you” okay why not, but this is true right now)

Karliah (Nightingale Armor) - Skyrim, Cosplay Progress

So my Karliah is preeettty much finished (besides my slow drying archery bow ಠ_ಠ). I have some things to fix though. My belt is out of whack, so I wanna buy a new one and re adjust the side panels of the skirt closer to the front.

I’ll post pictures of my face makeup once I stop being finicky with it.

that chestplate made me happy
