How to Make Your Skyrim Character Look Like Arnold in Conan the Barbarian

The world of Skyrim offers players the ability to create custom character skins to use in their quest to quell the Dragon threat, and if you’ve got enough time and creativity on your hands you can create some celebrity inspired characters to use such as Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Conan the Barbarian.  This is exactly what one of my gamer buddies known as Perfected Kaos managed to do through some painstakingly detailed work.  This guy is known for his dedication to gaming excellence, and while there are other videos out there of custom made Arnolds, I honestly feel his is the most authentic looking.

Luckily for those of you looking to create your own Conan, Kaos has shared his time tested formula to get you on your way.  I’m telling you, this gamer knows what he’s doing when it comes to Skyrim character creation, so you can fully trust in his coordinates to get you on your way to having your very own Arnold character in game.  In fact, I think at this point Kaos has probably spent more time creating various characters than actually playing the game.  What can I say?  He’s a stickler for details, and tends to shoot for perfection, hence his appropriately chosen gamer tag.

For a full list of directions on how to create an authentic looking Conan the Barbarian in Skyrim head on past the break.  There’s also a video of Kaos’ creation for you to use as a reference.  You’ve been wondering what other types of celebs you could create in this game…
