How to create a Tamarian
 
Here is my attempt at a Tamarian. The nose was hard to do and I couldn't get it perfect, but its close. Here is a sample picture of my Tamarian

These are the attributes that I used, but you can find them here as well (it might be easier to read) Tamarian Tutorial

HEAD
Category -Smooth Nose - Ridged
Skin Type - Orangish(10 from left - 2nd to last row)
Overall Pattern - Kobali 2 and a half Bars, Dark Orange(7 from left - 2nd to last row)
Base Complexion - Aged 01
Forehead Detail - Benzite with 2 bars
Nose Detail - None
Tattoo/Scars - None
Eyes - Humanoid
Ears - Long Lobes
Hairstyle - None
Eyebrow - None
Mouth Accessory - None
Eye Attach - Optional
Head Attach Organic - None

BODY
These are some features which I feel are important but you can change them.

Head Overall Height - 0 Bars
Cranium Slope - 1 Bar
Forehead Slope - 2 Bars
Brow Protrusion - 3 Bars
Eye Size - 1 and a half bars
Eye Height - 1 Bar
Eyes Width - 1 and a half bars
Nose Width - 0 Bars
Nose Height - 5 Bars
Nostril Size - 0 Bars for Male - 3 Bars for Female
Nostril Height - 5 Bars
Mouth Height - 5 Bars

Try to customize the facial features while leaving the nose the way it is. You can also try changing the Slopes and maybe making the character have a long head.

Let me know what you think and feel free to make any suggestions.

I think that's pretty close. I haven't tried a Tamarian myself, but I've seen others trying and it seems to be quite a challenge.

The hardest part is the nose, there really is no way to get the long nostril. Tamarians also don't have ears so I tried to find the closest thing to a flat ear as possible. The long lobes seem to work best since its similar to what they have as you can see in this picture http://www.rankopedia.com/CandidatePix/50036.gif

When I tried this, I went with no ears, which is an option.

Nice beginning...is it possible to make more brow ridges?

I've been wanting to do this as well since the "Tamarian gifts" were given. Nice job!

Ears turn into a bigger problem than it seemed first. I wish we could scale or at least move them up and down. I try since days to make a Lissepian - all parts are there, officially, but somehow it never looks like this one. Both skins are completey off, and there are no ears that small and that high on the head.

I just tried it out with no ears, its not too bad, looks kind of weird IMO, but I guess that's a personal preference.

Thanks, I'll look into it as soon as I have a chance, it might be possible to add more ridges.

Its true, ears seem to keep messing me up when I try to create a new race.

The next step would be figuring out the damn language.

IMO there are no better ridges then Benzite, however you can set it to the full 5 bars in order to get a more defined brow bridge. You can also set the Brow Protrusion to full if you really want. I'm just providing a template, you need to find what looks good to you. I just quickly tried it with Benzie and Brow Protrusion set to full and it looks good.

I still wish I could get a better nose, Cryptic we need a Tamarian nose right now! :mad: lol :p
