As a player I noticed there weren’t any heavy armor options for the Volkihar faction. This kinda sucks when you’ve specialised in heavy armor and decide to join the faction and discover they all wear light armor.
My solution was to create a mod that combines meshes from the Volkihar faction armor with heavy plate armor. The mod builds upon textures and meshes from the base game, so it unifies with Skyrim’s overall aesthetic. I combined and modified the meshes in 3DS Max. To establish a cohesive design across the set, I edited existing textures, and designed custom textures in Photoshop.
The monogram uses custom designed typography to get the right balance of weight and angularity. I combined this with Trajan for the text, which is also used for Skyrim's game title wordmark.
