"Known only as "the Old Cragsman", this mountaineer is a veteran explorer of the Shiverpeaks. His life is to travel, and travel is his life. Grown used to the solitude of weeks upon weeks of lone walking, the joy of braving the unknown keeps him moving forward."

The inspiration for this look came from the Hoelbrak Mountain Pack which I got with the 4th birthday, so it was built around it. The idea was to have a look which seemed comfortable and lightweight enough for someone who lives as a traveler. The Gnarled Walking Staff is used exactly as that - a walking stick.

All screenshots were taken in 4k resolution, with maximum graphics. Most were slightly edited in Photoshop.

I really like this look! It feels like a classic, cultural Norn without going full chlichee T3
I always thought this helmet to be kinda silly, but on this look it definitely works! He really does look like he could be some NPC walking around in Hoelbrak, or a quest giver even ^^
The scarf feels a little tacked on as it usually does, however I do know the benefits of the scarf covering up that weird shoulder/head ratio on male Norn
The overall dye scheme looks good, very natural and you made use of a lot of different shades; maybe I´d personally had taken a bit more expensive dye for the top, some that adds some more detail, but maybe that´s just me
When it comes to screen you definitely made an attempt to deliver many different locations and poses and that I definitely appreciate! I do think though that you could still improve the quality a little more; I think Field of View and the Vertical Slider would definitely come in handy for your case!
But overall this is a nice upload and worth a gold, I do see some improvement over your last looks, so keep going! Gold ^^

I really like how this armor looks basic and almost like leather. It is a new twist and over all look for a norn and you did a good job nailing that down. I like the third to last photo where you made him look like he was mountain climbing, that was neat and creative, never seen anyone do something like that. Gold for you sir or madam!
