    This model is ignored for the following reasons:
    -This model has a bug that makes it currently unplayable. This has an empty geoset that crashes maps!

    Everything is nice... except for the guitar. :p It just doesn't fit, IMO.

    The only other thing than a guitar I could think of was a giant flute, and that'd look really strange IMO.

    And some bands smash their guitars after they perform >D

    Personally I think is almost truly awesome. Only things I see that make it not as good or downright lame:
    1. Why a bagpipe!? Could just try to make him hold the Guitar like you are suppose to and make a 2 handed swing when attacking.
    2. The Siege Engine skin style does not fit that guitar, try a more rock style (Red and white is classic or blue and white)
    3. Not a problem but only a suggestion, make an animation to have him playing the Guitar, would make it a good model to have a duet with the Rocking Arthas model!
    Overall score in my opinion: 6/10 (Won't rate until you give a yes or no to the suggestions so incase you do change I can rate better)

    @1) Bagpipes are the greatest musical instrument known to man
    @2) I'm going to change it to be more of the old fashioned round guitar, then I will see about a skin from there
    @3) I would like to do that, but I dont know how to animate ><

    he doesnt seem to be wearing bard like armour and you can easily remove the helm. Bard would prefer to puffy clothes, or brown and green leather not gold armour, to my ideal bard would associate with brown and green, not brown in red which would associate more with a warrior in my eyes. He still looks like a brewmaster, and thats the issue you have to fix, turn a brewmaster into a bardmaster. The issue here that is hard is that bard are often assiciated with english stuff and this would be oriental to the panderan, i dont know what a japanese bard looks like but...you get the idea of my thoughts.

    tl;dr : He needs to look more like a bard, but in a sense where it will come to balance with a oriental panda being a bard.

    if you need a hat that would suit more you can ask me, but there are 2 types of hats im thinking of that would suit a bard so if you choose to do so send a pic.

    **update** changed his weapon to a lute, changed his hat texture. I know his portrait is messed up, I have to remake it ><

    Bards don't really wear armor at all, he is wearing decorative clothing. I hunted around on google, but I couldn't find anything about oriental bards.

    Not bad, nice idea but could do with some improvements in my oppinion.
    1) Keep in mind the Pandaren are Asian so bagpipes seem a little OOC (Out of Character) personally.
    2) The lute's neck could be longer and it's missing a headstock. Also, try making the body curcular and the neck long and thin to make it look a little more Oriental.
    3) The armour could be a little darker I think.
    Maybe I'm just being picky though and I've not made any models (yet) so I guess it's not my place to judge. It ain't a bad model though.


    :confused:

    I could use geoset animations to make his clothing look darker if you think that would help.

    I can look around and see if I can think of anything better to use than the bagepipe, but Im not very experienced with oriental musical instruments.
