Why don't you like the new wargs? Because they're like smoothed-out wolves? from apollyna
Because there’s no discernible anatomy! They look like the archetypal “evil” wolf, but drawn by someone who hasn’t actually taken the time to study the real thing:
…I get what they were going for, I’ve read about the artist’s motivations, but the execution still leaves something to be desired. The weird rectangular planes of the face, the inexplicable facial muscles and superstructure, the pointlessly monochromatic/”one pile fits all” fur. DAT JAWLINE.
Wolves can be so weird and interesting and unexpected- it seems a shame to throw that out the window for something that looks like, well, nothing. Forgettable. At least the hyena-wargs in the first trilogy had something to say! They’re not everyone’s cup of tea, but they were definitely unique.
She gets me.
