Nightfang Mount Skin

I had the pleasure of working on this guy as a griffon mount skin for Guild Wars 2. I had a lot of fun concepting all aspects of his design and coordinating with different disciplines to make the day and night transition for his face a reality. Concept, model, textures and bone constraint work for dangling parts done by me. In game effects done by Artem Sorokin.

During the day (in game) he has his ‘normal’ head and at night his face burns away to reveal just the skull.

Like all of our mount skins, he is 100% dyeable in game with four different color slot options. In his case: body, leather tack, metal accessories and eye/magical FX can each be dyed independently to suit the player’s choice.

Day vs night

The ‘You have been defeated icon’ is my favorite easter egg I put into the design. Most identifiable in the saddle and repeated in small details such as the ‘face danglies’ metal pieces

All parts of the model are dyeable ( in four separate areas, in this case: Body | Metal | Cloth/Leather | Eyes and effects )
