Veerrry cool helmet, thats a great choice from the game. Ive been playin it like crazy. I havent come across one of those yet, so ill make sure i keep a look out :eek

Dont know if its just me but it definetly reminds me of the faceplate off UNIT 2 from Evangelion. Or a Big a$$ spider :lol

thanks everyone! a little progress. this is turning out to be a very difficult sculpt. even though i have 360 degree reference, they are not that good.

depending on the angle, the shape changes, because the image is a bunch of polygons.

so...... im trying my best, but i'm going to have to take a few liberties to sculpt it how i think it will look good.

I can already see one liberty you've taken: eye holes. It did make me wonder how the player can wear a Falmer helmet considering the (blind) Falmer have no need for eye-holes.

Looks good, though!

yeah those eye holes were more for me so that i could have markers. im probably not going to make human eye holes. i just needed them for my measurements.

im toying with sculpting the falmer head in as well.

Personally I wouldnt, I'd make the helmet a separate piece from any head sculpt you decide to do.

Re: Skyrim: Falmer Helmet

small update.
i have been working on this but there probably isnt much to see. just working on getting the shapes better and symmetry.

i decided to also start up on the falmer war axe as well.

here's a ref pic of the axe.

ok so long time coning with this. i have been really busy with house stuff lately so not much time to work on props.

but here is a little i did today. getting the shapes down, and i threw in some details to make it easier for me to see. but this will probably get reshaped.
