Age Meme: Laraniel by Isriana Age Meme: Laraniel by Isriana
Well, this was sort of challenging. I've never made an age meme before and it proved to be quite interesting - it's still not perfect but I think I managed to maintain some likeness throughout different ages. Also, to add some challenge I chose my Altmer mage Laraniel as a test subject. I've said this before and I'll probably say it again, but damn I'm so lost with that high elf color palette... :XD: I hope that one day I'll have time to make something like this about my other Skyrim characters, too.
Now, as far the meme itself is concerned, the elven aging is a bit tricky (hence the lack of actual ages) but I was aiming at depicting her as what would be a human equivalent of about 1, 4, 10, 15, 18, 20 and 25 years old. The last one takes place during the events of Skyrim so that would make her 240 years old, but as far the others go I have no idea what the actual numbers might be - so if anyone of you have come across a lore article or forum discussion that would shed light on subject, feel free to let me know. :D

That'd be around the time when that magic experiment went wrong and cost her her sight.

In the second-to-last panel, why does Laraniel almost remind me of the Shaman from Darksiders II?

i think they age normally until 18 then from 18 to 200 or 300 they are considered young, 301 to 600 is like middle age, then 700 to 1000 us elderly or old. if i read right from some sites XD. I think Neloth is either in is 800's or 900's.

the way I base my high elf age thingy is that calcelmo in markarth has been studying the dwemer for 200 years by his account and considering everything he says and his friends and family says he likely started studying them very early on. This is very innacurate as you can base the ageing process on the fact that hes very old and atleast 200 years old but you then have to guess a bit about the age he would have started studying them. I don't know he might say when he started in one of hid 'dwarves' books but I age him at being around 250 and being close to if not in the last few years of his natural life.
