Derp Female Worgen - Please no. by frisket17 Derp Female Worgen - Please no. by frisket17
Digging through my old files, I found this. I had to laugh.

Massively important disclaimer
By no means do I want or think Worgen should look like this. In fact, I did it after everyone (back in Alpha/Beta days) were caterwauling about the aesthetics. I forget exactly what was said or why or where... but this was the result.

This was a demonstration of people complaining the do's and don't's of worgen female models. Many wanted them dolled up and pretty. In fact, many guessing from Blizzard's trend for most female races, were betting they'd be like some female wolven barbie.

So this was the Please No, Blizzard image.

It was done back when they first were announced in 2010.


Hurp Derp Worgen


PS: I'm pretty sure those familiar with my worgen know I lean towards the more feral / were type worgen than... this... atrocity.


PPS: This was also due to the 'scene' hairstyles Blizz originally had on alpha females. I was not fond of that option.. In hindsight, I'd GLADLY take the alpha model over the beta, though. :/

Lol, even though I'm not a huge fan of overly feminine werewolves/worgen either, I'd GLADLY take this kind of barbie-worgen over the chihuahua we have now. Such a shame too as worgen is such an amazing race, and the males look very wolf-ish enough.

Just gonna slip in here and second this.

And it'd be interesting to see that sort of hairstyle on fav.me/d323yxw, actually. That one is easily the best Worgen model I've seen yet, and beats the everliving hell out of the deformed chihuahua with eyeliner we have now. Here's hoping that WoD's model updates get it right this time.

Agreed; I'm thrilled the other races are getting updates at least, but there's no guarantee the worgen and goblin will get an update, and if they do it will be after the vanilla and BC models - who knows how long after that will be. I guess I should be happy we got a "maybe" though.


But if they do go through with it.. and they turn out better than whatever we have now (or, y'know, not just a higher resolution Chihuahua with better animation), I'd surely race change my druid. I understand goblins and worgens are not old at all, and that's why Blizz is iffy about updating them along with the other races. But just because they aren't as old, doesn't negate the fact that they both are very sub-par to the new models, female worgens being the worst. I think the Goblin model portrays their race well, even if I never will play one, but even if they don't look bad, they still can not compare to the updated animations, textures and so on of the new models.

I think the Worgen we got are, sadly, more DERP than these.

I know right? God it still makes me feel sad. As a female werewolf obsessive, I've had a few daydreams about making an amazing female worgen model (even better than the male) and going to blizzard and getting the horrible sexist mess they made replaced! For now though shadowed helms with glowing eyes and sidebits to hide the snarl are my only tolerable options (apart from deathknight..somehow the blue eyes balance it a bit).

I'll say this one's face still looks like an actual wolfs/worg, much bette than what we currently got, I'd take this face in a heart beat.

The sad truth is that this rendition of the female worgen is actually better than the current because it's at least anatomically correct. The body in WoW is just... ew. Plastic boobs and weird posture. And the head, oh god... It's a glorified chihuahua.
