Michael Kirkbride's Concept Art (Reference)

I'll be uploading high-res originals of the art book images, and maybe some never-before-seen art as well. If there's anything in particular you'd like to see, just shout out. 

You can see all the art on the official Tumblr (including some non-Morrowind items I'm not posting here), or individually below:

Really hoping we can

Really hoping we can realise his visions more thoroughly than the original game could. 
The magus suit and the netch skyport are definitely something id like to see tried in skywind.

You have no idea how happy this makes me. I hope Skywind can live up (and I really wish I had any skill/experience in 3D modeling).

Please someone model this crazy looking mage! I can get someone to write a script for a little quest involving him and everything (and of course get someone to voice this fellow), this is always what i imagined elder scroll wizards would be!

P.S. i suppose i should put Michael Krikbride in the special thanks section of the credits eh? You know what im just going to go ahead and do that!

I imagine he'd sound

I imagine he'd sound something like King Bumi from Avatar:TLA but with a tendency to bleat like a goat every so often (Failed partial transfiguration, see his leg). Likely very absent minded and prone to exploding and cackling maniacally (He would make a very good follower). If I had any recording equipment I'd be working on him already

Subo-Lathla looks cool - what

Subo-Lathla looks cool - what was that to have been?  A floating temple?  A city?  I read somewhere commenting that that wasn't a skylamp, but a Sload ship.  Was it a Sload fortress in the sky?  I want to see this in the game - whatever it is!

Also, skylamps might be neat to see.

= Not just HIM visions, why limit yourself? I hope community can more than just realize visions and modernize CG of old game. We can make more flora, fauna, culture and many more, when following just most general ideas and style.

The Llesw'er image isn't his. I also ask respectfully to remove the last image, as it was never supposed to spread beyond the people to whom it was originally given.

Hi Lady Nerevar! You taught me how to UVW map when I was working on Tamriel Rebuilt. I went by Vorrheis back then.

Oh... you flatter me. It's nice to see you again as well. I'm happy to see you still involved with the Morrowind modding community. I wanted to thank you so much for answering all my questions back then. You really did take a lot of time to help me out.

Barely involved, these days. Don't have the time I used to. Nowadays I'm mostly an art, lore, and general community person.

Though I wonder, where is our

I wonder though, where is our culture going if a line drawing of a kinky monster is more offending than over 9000 pics of realistic blood and gore we have around the forums? Or FIRST PERSON DECAPITATIONS? Is a self-impregnating demon going to destroy young people's psyche more than that?

That Mephala was a bit extreme though indeed, but people were even complaining about nipples on my Azura concept, and refused to put it in a trailer that had an image of impaling on a sword in first person. That kind of taboo really annoys me. Men nipples are okay to show though, woman nipples - strictly forbidden from 3rd to 18th year of life.

But I digress. It's really awesome to see all this art, I've never seen most of these before :D And I wish TES took a more naughty route as Kirkbride imagined it... At least to some degree. Sex is a rather important thing for life in general, so having a fantasy world almost completely stripped out of it makes it all the more shallow. Luckily we still have Desele...

I understand if we were

I understand if we were company which have to sale product and then we want to reach bigger audience to get lower PEGI (I don't know what do u have in US) but we are not. I agree with Dragomir. How nipple can destroy someone psyche? or even sex? We can simply added information that this mod has got "adult" content and this is all. The funny fact is that torture chamber in Skyrim is OK but some naked stuff not :D Nowadays everything is somehow offending to somebody. Many cultures look at this in different way. For example in many muslim countries not covering your hair is very inappropriate in magazines, videos etc. (I'm not talking about this good or not, this is only example). If you're trying to please everyone, then you're not going to make anything.

Games/movies/literature are

Games/movies/literature are made to see more than IRL, not to see less than IRL. I've never seen some special in nude bodies, sex or graphic violence - It's just reality reflection.

Also community is making mod oriented to players of original MW - what age they are now? I think it's more than 18.

We should try to keep the nuderty at a minimum. I fined nuderty sorta distaseful in video games. But I think it's ok to a digree just do over do it if you know what I mean. ;)

[edit] yes I know weird coming from the guy who has endorsed nuderty up until now. I just don't like nuderty that is on the brink of pornography.

Personally I hate that

Personally I hate that society has made nudity something to be ashamed of. No I'm not a nudist :-P But lets get adult here, there is a difference between porn and nudity. Lets face it sex is a part of life. The only thing I think is stupid is the way gamers push the body proportions of usually females. But once again thats a personal choice, not going to stop people enjoying what they like.

There are going to be no censorship restrictions on Skywind. If its decided that slaves are naked for humiliation purposes and sex, then will be run with what seems to be more real world.

Awesome :D

Awesome :D

And Smerk - if you want an example of nudity in game done damn right, check out Witcher 2. Sex there was an integral part of the story and character development, wasn't overdone to the point of porn and love scenes were actually quite beautiful. Showing passion, emotion and love, and not just being hollow fap material for nerds like most Skyrim nudity mods.

Not to mention Daggerfall and Battlespire had full frontal nudity ;) In the latter example quite hot one too.

Isn't probably the right thread for it, but I'm glad the topic was cleared out of the way. You know, for design purposes

Yeah. When aborigines from ash island have body of top model it's kinda freaky. it's a pity that we can not give them fat, ugly, crippled, old or just dirty bodies/skin.

Happychappy your really

Happychappy your really sounding like a nudist. :P the definition of pornography is showing explicit material of sex organs so theres literally no different between nuderty and porn.

Decide what you wish Happychappy but this game will be just like another porn mod on nexus if you do this.

Under social acceptance yes that is true. I just don't want things to get to the extent of having to see guys peenor or sex organs on animals. Which I don't really get.

I don't want to beat a dead

I don't want to beat a dead horse here (one that would have a penis), but really what is the difference between a limb and genitals? My point being the seeing the feelers on Kwama head which could be sex organs, is no different to if they had an extra body part between their lower legs. You don't remove it because its used for sex. This sounds like a ridiculous statement to some, but when you boil it down, its a simple fact of modern, especially western society that has put this stigma on the subject. You'll find private parts are displayed with much pride in cultures still, clothing is just a necessity of weather and convenience of hygiene.

So if making a game would have males with penises and females with vaginas, because that what humans have. Check down your pants, you'll find one or the other down there. So why impose a censorship with it? I think there is an age gap here in thought processes.

Man, I seen so many nude

Man, I've seen so many nude people in my time but the people and places that i hang around, that I don't really care anymore ...Tbh do whatever the hell you guys want to do with nudity, we are not bound or obligated by rating system like ersb or pegi. If it enhances the world then go for it...Its not like we all haven't seen a nude person before

Nudity and sexuality related

Nudity and sexuality related but it does not necessarily mean one another. In games can/should be especially commonplace nudity (not sure about wording, sorry)
---
However, that's not good condition if dreamers of MW or berserkers of Bloodmoon will be just nude or in underwear. Would be more interesting IMHO if they will have some special red/black body painting.

perhaps handle it like Fallout New Vegas handled the brothels?  skimpy clad night walkers, i would imagine that they would walk around a small amount of clothing that is provocative, I.E. simi-transparent garments of either crimson or of pastels. but due to the nature of Morowind's culture maybe something more along the lines of belly dancers (if you don't know what i mean then just Google "Belly dancer". it is provocative and still in line with the culture

I'd go with HBO rules.

I'd go with HBO rules.  Nudity would be fine, and you could imply that sexy-times are being had, but nothing overtly pornographic.  Perhaps different models for 'nude' bodies which includes cloth undergarments as a 'tickable' option for the final download like Better Bodies had.

New image of the Tribunal he uploaded yesterday

Vivec is at the side facing away from the viewer for a reason. Almalexia is front and center because she is the motherfucking boss. Also note the cosmic baby growing inside Sotha Sil. While Sotha Sil is dead as we saw in the add-on pack “Tribunal”, the child survived.

Yo hold up does anybody have any information on that cosmic baby

I understand that House Dres

I understand that House Dres is rather distant and uninvolved in affairs within Vvardenfell, but I think it would be nice to see something more in reference to them besides the few lines in books and from npcs like Vivec, something more tangible like a Dres warrior set of armor or weapons - or perhaps even rogue faction members on shipwrecked islands or caves. I must admit, I found this concept art of a Dres Warrior and it was so cool that it inspired me rather crudely to make this post - mostly because I don't believe its been posted here yet. Regardless of what faction it represents, I think it is a nice conceptual piece if ya'll maybe want inspiration for in-game armor or clothes.

Notice how the robe is more of a combination of overlaid chitin/bonemold plate armor and cloth, with a heavy emphasis on tribal, traditional, and yet aristocratic dunmer elements, such as the headdress and flowing robes. I'm imagining an aesthetic that reflects what the ashlander tribes would be if they were corrupted by money and power. This is represented in what Vivec say about them in-game:

"House Dres represents the past of pre-Tribunal Great House culture, a persistent tradition of Daedra- and ancestor-worshipping civilized Dunmer clans."
