On this page we provide an overview to the fantasy art / game art galleries for sets of armor in Oblivion. Our galleries mix "normal" Oblivion (and the Shivering Isles official expansion) armor and modded variations. Armor that is completely different and only available from a mod are not included in this overview and armor art gallery index. Instead, they have a separate page and subpages for the artwork. Notable collections of interesting and beautiful fantasy armours include Hentai Mania 1: Princess of the Sorrow and Mystery of Mausoleum.
Each armor gallery page is generally laid out in the same way, in four sections:
The first section shows the basic male version of the armor -- i.e., How the armor appears when worn by a male character. The unmodified colour scheme as it appears in Oblivion is used here.
The second section shows the female version of the armor -- i.e., How the armor appears when worn by a female character. Not all Oblivion armour sets have a female variant, especially if the player is not expected to obtain a set of it. We typically use a retextured (recoloured) version of this armor from Armamentarium -- a large arms and armor mod for Oblivion that includes a moderate collection of retextured arms and armour. The model/style of the armor is unchanged, but here we showcase an interesting variation on the colour scheme.
The third section has interesting variations on Oblivion armor available from other mods. We have generally gone with the female version of armor available in Colourwheel's Sexy Stock Armour and Clothing Replacer or Colourwheel's Sexy Imperial Legion. Mods that alter armor and clothing for female characters often involve chopping off or shrinking sections to expose a lot of skin. This is obviously a quick way to make armor look more "sexy". One of the reasons we like ColourWheel's is the generally subtler way in which the armour is changed. There is more bare skin, but that is rarely the focus. Instead, adjustments are made to incorporate apparel elements that are more feminine and sexy, without necessarily showing that much more skin: Skirts are shortened, heels on armored boots, glimpses of underwear. There is not one standard set of changes applied to every armour, however.
For changes to female versions of Oblivion armour, other interesting mods worth a look at include the (small) YAARM series by MShadowy, and DMRA Skimpy Armor Expanded. The latter has a more consistent change applied to the armours. Both feature a lot more skin exposure.
Some armor sets may have additional mods that change the armor sets in Oblivion or Shivering Isles. These will follow the Colourwheel female version.
The final section is a slideshow with all available screenshots for the type of armor in the gallery. This is a mix of normal and modded versions, and typically features each armor from multiple angles, including side and rear.
