Bad Ideas for Monster Mounts by SylxeriaGuardian Bad Ideas for Monster Mounts by SylxeriaGuardian
"Tamed Tigrex? Sure why not. Tigrex Mount? Not blinking likely."



So after Monster Hunter: Stories was announced, I got lots of ideas. I'd been saying for a looong time that having monster mounts and hunting on the back of your wyvern'y companion would be absolutely awesome, and now it seems that might just become reality. To an extent anyway - we've only got a little bit of info to go off of so far but I'z hopeful to see Great Jaggi mount <3

Anyway, it spawned a lot of ideas I wanted to draw - and one of them was a few riders and their mounts running along, with the Tigrex one just blazing ahead of everyone else, followed behind by a Rathian, Kut-ku, and Gendrome.... And then waaaaaaay in the back was another monster struggling to keep up :P

I never did get to that, but I did pick the initial sketch of this up and finished it. Somewhat. Actually, halfway through the first lining stage I was absolutely furious. Truth be told thoiugh, this is the best human I've ever drawn heh. You can tell it's a human right? ^^;


So yeah. After talking with a few friends on Skype I changed the racing idea around to "Bad Monster Mount ideas", and two of 'em were Zamitros and Lagiacrus ;) 

Also this is a good reason why it's not a good idea to feed a Tigrex foods heavy in sugar. They're energetic enough as it is - to put it lightly - without sugar helping that along!

Once he starts he's not stopping!

You say awful, I say lancer's dream. He would be right up there with the Blos family! It's hard to stop a train after all, especially a train with fangs!

If you can manage to stay on his/her back without falling off and don't mind the occasional crashing into things, Tiggy could be a very good mount :P

We built a specialized saddle, give the striped wyvern some extra claws for traction, and teach him to jump off walls!


BEST. MOUNT. EVER.

Welp, just got confirmation that Tiggy is indeed a potential companion and mount in the game!  As is Khezu of all things. xD

:la: 

I wonder if the monster's subspecie will also come into play, or only their base forms.  Molten Tiggy looks pretty cool :> 
Though I still find the standard orange-and-yellow Tiggy is my fav of the Tigrex lineage <3

Hark, what is that strange thing holding onto the Tigrex's back? I cannot tell!

:giggle: It's obvious he's a human, and he's totally well drawn. You deserve more confidence in your art 'cause this is awesome :3

I dunno, I can't tell either! :dummy: 


Hehe, well for someone totally out of his element - so to speak - I suppose it does look fairly good ^^
Definitely room for improvement, that'll come in time though I hope <3

Don't beat yourself up!  It's a better human than I can draw-and yes, I can tell its human.  It looks great to me.
Anyway, haha, no sugar for ANY mounts in my opinion.
