Garuga was more difficult before Unite? Oh jesus, and I thought he was intimidating as he currently is.. This makeover is quite good. I think you got most of the important aspects right, though I do think it'd be cool if Garuga's wings were there as well, but that's really just a personal preference. Btw, that anatomy you're going with here is quite delicious.
You did an awesome job on her, Zakoryu! (I'm listening to the battle music now!) This brings back so much memories of my Freedom days! I will never forget mistaking the Yian Garuga to be like his punch-bag cousin. What really got me back then was the music too!
One of the most badass, fierce and now beautiful monsters I've ever fought! Will you be doing any more monsters? Also, Freedom 1 Yian Garuga vs Unite's G-Rank Rajang. Just somethin' that popped into my mind when realizing the power difference between the original Garuga and the Freedom 2/Unite version.
Pound it. Hahaha. I really like your others as well and look forward to future work! They're so well done.
And, for the record (since I haven't played MHF1), I think the High Rank and G-Rank Garugas in MHFU are pretty boss. The new double faceplant is intense, and I'm not sure if he backflipped from out of his charge in F1. THAT scared the shit out of me! First time I saw it, my cat took the hit!!!
Seriously, if I DID play F1 it WOULD be for Garuga, to see him in his original glory. Though, it'd probably be such a pain to GET to him in the first place.
Should I be afraid of her? She IS pretty, but on the other hand it's a Garuga of all things... Oh well. A lot better than fighting MHF1's Garuga either way. Not even Frontier's is as dangerous from my experience.
