In her recent post on the imbalanced gender representation of NPCs in Azeroth, Akabeko said:
In Cata we met the sweet Tol’vir cat dudes, who lacked for dudettes but not offspring (I like to think they reproduce by budding those magnificent pecs.)
which reminded me of something she said in her early-Cataclysm review of Uldum:
No female Tol’vir? Would it really be so hard to shrink their biceps, strap some watermelons to their chest, and bring it all together with a tastefully tattered leather bikini?
That quote — and the image it spawned in my brain — has been stuck in the back of my imagination for over a year now, so when her new post brought it to mind again, I really couldn’t delay putting it on paper any longer.
I have too much of a stylistic preference for more realistic anatomy, however, and the best I could manage was coconuts, not watermelons.
Then I started thinking about other NPC races that really ought to have females represented among them.
Male Tuskarr are so round and roly-poly that I bet female Tuskarr would give great hugs — perhaps the best hugs that any adventurer would ever get (at least until they meet the Pandaren)!
The male Broken model uses the same armature & animations as the male Tauren model, so it is really quite easy to imagine a female Broken by making similar alterations to the female Tauren armature.
