Lynxrider

Submitted by Himperion
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Something about a glaive throwing woman riding a giant cat.

The faceguard, mount saddle and glaive, were took from wow rips, thinned in polys when possible, and skinned with ingame textures. The Lynx is a modded Panther, poly's where added on the belly to create the belt under the saddle, and the "funny" skinning by blizzard covered when possible.

About the lack of shield, i like how the model looks now, but i'm open to add one.

Apart of the main model, it comes with it's own Glaive missile.

Updated the flying eyelids problem and changed the armor on the right arm.

Reworked the wrap in the back of the Lynx, and added a second version with a shield.

Wow, this is a really nice edit. Quite simple, but clearly useful and well-done. There is some room for improvement, especially regarding the wrap, but from the in-game view it's already looking good. A quite creative usage of the wyvern texture. And...

    I'm not an expert at judging models, but in my opinion, that shoulder pad doesn't fit this model at all.

    something with the lynks ears doesn't look right to me.. maybe make them wider and shorter, also the lynks is missing its cheek fur shape. and lastly, the eyelids on the female are phasing in and out through her, fix or remove that

    edit: the back-wrap of the back legs is very bad, compared to the every other piece of mesh, you should fix that too

    What a lovely weapon, but yeah, the Shoulderpads could be better and more fitting, the eyes are sorta weird, I like her armor, specially the part on her face, it goes well with her hair style, smaller ears could do for the lynx, and I like the pack it has on the back.

    That demon rabbit looks scary. This is what happens when Satyrs and rabbits make love. The result don't really look much like a lynx :p
    I like the claws, they looks sharp and deadly. Keep up the good work. You should make a new race, a horde of demon rabbits lol

    Ok, going to work on everything. About the ear size, well i compared this with the WoW version on the wiki and the other Lynx model here but sure going to see how to reduce it.

    I like it, but I would change the weapon so it isn't so similar to the huntress original model, but it's cool nonetheless

There is some room for improvement, especially regarding the wrap, but from the in-game view it's already looking good. A quite creative usage of the wyvern texture. And it works flawlessly in-game. The missile is a neat addition. Approved.

    Yo Himp, I'm not sure if you've seen this Lynx model (Eversong Lynx) but do you think you'd be able to work with it if you get either Cavman's or Kuhne's permission to make a Lynxrider with that model as a mount?
