Sand, sand and yet more sand as far as the eye can see...

Okay, so I was resisting making an desert look but then the shifting sands weapons were released and this happened. My inspiration was the sand jackal; I wanted my scourge to look like she was also shaped from sand, or maybe a jackal shape shifter!

This was very impromptu and kinda rushed in comparison with some of my other looks. Let me know what you think :)

I love the use of the helm with the shoulders! Very clever. Incorporating the pale green of the weapons into the armor and mount is spot on. Your screens are gorgeous.... Have all the gold.

I wasn't sure of these weapons at first. cuz they seemed kind of lame to me except for the sand falling.
Yet u have done something amazing with them!
the weapons with the mount, the location and the armor are just perfect together.
not to mention the colors!
u say that usually u dont rush your looks. but.... usually rushed looks out of nowhere turn out to be the best.
this is one of them. pure gold sand for this :d

This is one beautiful look indeed! :D I honestly loved the damn weapons from the first time I saw them on the dulfy website, and you made them justice! Love it from top to bottom, and I am a sucker for female norn :3 so, Gold!

This looks awesome!
Simply the perfect combination of armour and dyes; especially the shoulders and headpiece are really clever and definitely give the feeling of a Jackal
Also really like how you mirrored the jackalĀ“s runes by using these bright green spots in the armour
The presentation is of course flawless, gold on all sliders!

Thank you for your lovely comment :) Sometimes I'm not sure on those shoulders so I'm glad to hear you like them.

Thanks Kenny. Given that you've seen some of the really useless stuff I never post here I think you may have a point!

Thank you :) I think this might be one of those love/hate weapon sets; when they were released all my guildies were talking about the mount skins and I haven't even spared a glance for those yet...

Thank you Elessar! It's weird; I only chose that helm because her eyes are completely the wrong colour and I needed something metallic. It's only now I'm reading the comments that I realise it also links to the jackal theme :)

Beautiful creation! The color palette is the star next to a very clever choice of Warbeast pieces and the Shifting Sand weapons. You play the concept of the Shifting Sand weapons to the max: it tells the tale of ancient alien technology buried in the sand inside striking forgotten pyramids. It's a very compelling story in the literature and movies, instantly relatable when I look at your screenshots. Near perfection!

In my opinon, the only draw back is the shoulder piece. It's cliche. It doesn't look bad on its own, but it doesn't elevate the Alien-esque mysteriousness that your character possesses. It instantly yanks me back to the common reality: Oh, it's Tyria and she's a Norn and jackal master.

Thank you Iris. That is a really cool way of interpreting this look! I honestly just used the shoulders as I wanted to link to the jackals on the weapons, so yeah, I guess it's kinda cliche. Maybe I'll play around with the shoulder piece in-game and go for something more geometric.
