Countless species of animals and creatures are known all over Tyria. There are some beings however, whose existence is uncertain. Myths and tales are on everyone’s lips, but the truth remains obscure. One specific tale is about a being, half humanoid, half goat. It is said that “The Faun” watches narrowly lonely striders and wanderers. Mostly rumoured to be seen in forests and groves, the Faun is believed to protect such landscapes, full of magic and life itself.

Harmless to everyone who lives in peace with nature, the Faun is shy and usually avoids unnatural sounds, such as talk and rattling tools. But there is also a dark side to this tale. The ones who enter the woodlands, standing under the protection of the Faun, are doomed a cruel fate! Whoever mistreats flora and fauna in front of this creature’s eyes, will never be seen again. It hunts with a wooden bow, never missing a single arrow. It crushes its enemy’s skulls with a hammer, so heavy no other creature could lift it. And if needed, the nature itself is on the Fauns command!

You are better off, treating living things nicely! If you do so, you might even hear the Fauns mesmerizing playing of the flute … but don’t seek its location, it is shy remember?


Hey guys, the Hylek here o/

I was experimenting with some armor pieces and suddenly found this leg-boot comb. It looked very much like a satyr to me, so i gave this theme a go ;D
The tip of the boots resembles a hoof imo and the bulky legpiece looks a bit like fur to me!
For the rest of the comb i was searching something that would fit a rams style. The helmet was quite obvious to take and i think the shoulders give a good rammy feeling ;D
The gloves had those little spikes which fit the shoulders and leg-piece, so i went for them. The chest-piece created a somewhat tribal appearence, which i liked here.

For the colours i tried to keep it subtle.


I hope you like the theme and the screens ive taken :D

Cya next time o/

One of the most crazy ideas and unique looks I ever came across on this website ! And definitely my new favorite look from you (I know I say it everytime xD but this one is so very special and weird in a good way!)
I'm so happy you kept this look secret it's such an amazing suprise ! ^^

What can I say ? Dark skinned norn ladies rule ! Always and forever :D
The mix is so cool especially the legs/boots combo which is genius and this clipping well... I usually hate it but here it's the best clipping ever. I can really see the hoof and the goat legs. And this helm was for sure created for this faun look :P

It's also a genius use of this white tattoo. With it and the helm, the face looks so interesting! Also the tattoo goes very well with the white lines of the chest (which kind of look like tattoos too!).

The colors : Well.. I just love them! This mix of grey/black kind of reminds me of my gargoyle and I think it's a perfect choice ! It gives a very special extra aura to your look which is already unique by the theme. The colors also go perfectly with the weapons which are so on point!

I love the concept, I love the screens, I love the flute idea, I love the story... I love everything^^
I'm just in love ^-^
I promise I won't mistreat flora and fauna! :o
Just take all my gold Faun ! è_é

Awesome! This is probably one of the most unique looks I've seen. She resembles a ram or zebra god of sorts. I absolutely love the textures and colors. And don't tell me you managed to take all those pictures without the aegis effect?!

*___* WOW!
She is amazing and beautiful and sooo unique!
The boots and leg combo is so great despite the clipping, well let's say it clipps perfect xD The silhouette they make is awesome.
I love the contrast of the heavy plated pieces with some organic material on the chest and the weapon. The bow is genius here!
Also the repeating of the thick spikes on pants and gloves is really cool managed.
Dyes are simple, but perfect fo the theme and work so well with the tattoo, great job!
Screens are just awesome, I like the ones in the swamp the most :)
When I see this look, I feel like I have to start thinking outside of my little styling-box.
Aw, I'm so in love with her!
Can't there be something cooler than gold to give for this look? I would if I could, but for now it's all the gold I can give!

Ah there she is, the big surprise!
I didn´t think I would ever say that,but: omg, I like the stupid heels here!
The whole look ist just so creative and I am stunned that you actually made the legs look like a faun´s legs; even in most of the screens the position is just spot on!
I agree with the others that this is probably one of my favourite looks from you! I think this is one of the instances where I am nearly tempted to use the look for one of my own characters!
Just sooo much love for this, you really outdid yourself!
PS: If we really make a guild labyrinth, will you be its guardian then? :P

Looks like dark skinned norn ladies are really appreciate here !
Once again that's a unique and gorgeous look. I love the idea of the Faun, it's one of my favorite myths ! It's not my favorite look from you but it's a good place in my top 5 !
Big gold !

I like that you used that helm, I always wanted to use this one but it never did fit well, but it looks cool with yours :)
I like much the weapons, the dyes and the screenshots, they are really cool! The thing that I may would change is the leggings, I don't really like those square spikes, but it's my opinion of course!

Good job as always ;)

oh my goodness, this is so crazy and looks so good :D
the boots really fit perfectly here because as you said, they resemble hoofs! and the pants make nice goat hips! :D the helm is perfect of course and the face paint looks really cool with it^-^
this look makes me smile because I have to think of the goat simulator game (dunno if people here know about it) and how derpy that game is..
but well, she's not a goat but a faun and really beautiful on top of that! :) definitely a unique look!

At last your secret look! i was hoping for something crazy and u made it. it looks like u have hoofs indeed! the only bad opionated thing i have to say is i would change the spikes on the legs the same color as the shoulder. so it looks more like it belong together ^^ but u did a great job again my friend.

Thanks for the compliemtn Binny :D
YES! It was such a pain, always luring mobs to me and letting them pop aegis ... but i had no other choice this time, as aegis wouldve ruined my bow-screens quite a lot!
Its awesome to see someone appreciating this aspect of the screens!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;D

Well ... as i said, i kinda stumbled upon the leg-boot comb by accident and so i didnt plan the theme at all! I was kinda surprised that it turned out this good actually, because usually i have trouble "thinking outside the box" myself xD

Thanks Migg!
I agree that i would usually NEVER use these pants ... but they make such nice goat-hips that this piece was a must-use! The appearence wouldnt have been the same without this legpiece, so i couldnt go for another one :/

I would totally agree with you unless there wasnt this thing called dye-slots -.-
The shoulder-piece has just one, so i couldnt dye any details there.
And the pants got 3 slots ... BUT the one that dyes the belts, also dyes the spikes ... i wanted to match the belts with the chest-piece so i had to make a compromise. I tried to balance it a little bit with the helmet tho, the spikes there are white too (but i guess they are hardly visible)

Woaaaaaaaaaaa :OO I was and still am truely surprised by this Look! You had me at Faun!
I love what you created here the armour mix is simply amazing I especially adore the headpiece it's just perfect.
You did such a good Job finding the right pieces I never thought that these pants could work for any outfits but you completely changed mit Point of view here.
The dyes are very natural and beautiful and I have to give you all the credit for making screens without the Aegis thingy and I looove those Screens in general they are absolutely stunning!!!
Have your daily Gold x3

Really creative look! This is an interesting thing to do with the legs and boots and in combination with the helmet....the bomb! I immediately knew what you were going for!
The screens are really the top notch quality I am used from you and it sure must have taken some time to always get rid of that stupid aegis
I love how you incorporated the weapons in the story, the bow especially fits exceedingly well
I am not 100% on board with the gloves as they just feel a bit too technical for me (even though they do have those spikes), but that is just the tiniest nitpick
Receive a well deserved gold from me!

Phalanx Warboots seems to be created for this look! :o
I don't know who you figured out idea for this look, but you are visionary :D
Personally I would go for more intense brown accents, but with your dyes look is more natural and kind of subtle, I think
Your satir reminds meabout a "El Laberinto del fauno" gosh what a creepy movie xd
It's one of the most unique look on this webside for me :3

Thanks morrigan ^,^
Yeah i wanted to make her hips look like brown fur first ... but it was hard to balance the colours then. It somehow always looked off to me, so i went for an overall more matching colour-scheme.
Glad you like it still :D

This looks incredible imo. Ayy this is so unique, i doubt i have ever seen a look like this. Not here and not ingame.
Im always having an eye out for some Norn Female Looks and gotta say, the matchup from the skin and tattoo pattern combined with the rest..
The dye job + the combo is sweet!

It really looks like a faun! Luv it.
Gold from me.

I would have NEVER thought of putting this armor combination together. Its so unique! Your screens and dye choices are perfect! I guess theres nothing to say that hasnt already been said all of your looks are so good! Im totally a fan girl lol

I can not imagine a faun in metal armor. Silver.

Hylek

I get why you are hesitating to give a gold for a heavy armor faun concept. Unfortunately the pants and boots were needed to make her look like a faun in the first place so i couldnt decide on the armor-class beforehand. This was an armor-comb i stumbled upon and i wanted to make the concept into a look.

Still, i absolutely appreciate your feedback and want to thank you again for all the good votes and the time you spend on my looks, i hope you enjoyed some screens and concepts!
