PC gamer recently released a new article about the asura starting area and character creation. A couple of interesting images were released of the female asura character creation--from one extreme to the other. Which do you prefer? Both are the same gender--female. Just to clear up any confusion.

I think the bottom one is cute in an Asuran way :) But I always thought of them as cross between gremlins and rats anyways...so there might not be much help for them XD

Honestly? Neither. I think I would prefer something in the middle of that. They're both very OMG on their prospective extremes, and not in a good way.

Personally, i believe they should be cute :) unless the creepiness fits in with the characters backstory... otherwise i think they should look cute, but be able to tear you apart mentally and stab you in teh back :D <3

If I made a thief I would go with the top picture but if I made a cute lady mesmer I'd go with the bottom.
Josh did a nice review of the new area.

If I had to choose one I think I prefer the top one, though I would change the skin and eye color.
The bottom one is just so "BOOM! In your face!" type of reaction, its too much. Zojja and Vekk are cute in my book, that thing ins't.
Well... to be honest, neither of them are but what would you expect from Asuras, their appearance is rarely considered eye-candy for human standards :P

I like the top myself, knowing the asura from GW1 it seems to fit better. The bottom looks a little too heavily influenced by human preferences for my taste--and I'm sure the asura would just loathe to conform to silly bookah ideals XD

Eww frankly the bottom one is creepier to me.  I mean... Eww....

Nightmarish D:

Other than that, i'd probably go the creepier route.

Both are creepy in my honest opinion :P

But the one of bottom is even more. Kinda like one of those creepy
little anime girls that just want to eat your soul and murder you in your sleep o_o

I think it's worth mentioning that top pic is also a female Asura... the person who took this pics and wrote up the article talked about trying to make the two extremes (in the female Asura character creation) ... SO with that said.. the Asura clearly have LOTS of customization which is a good thing!

I'll make mines cute, but not too cute, similar to Vekk's style.

I like the top one better, though I'd giver her bigger eyes. But then, I prefer the GW1-style Asura.

I won't be making an asura, probably. But I prefer asuras to look like how they did in GW1. So I strongly prefer the first one. I think it looks good even, just needs a shorter/thicker neck.

I'm not touching Asura at all... They're both rather creepy I think.

The cute one looks creepy to me to be honest, but that's because it's too cute... :wacko:
I do want to go on the cute side of things for my bubbly female asuran elementalist, but I'm not going to go all bug-eyed and "uguu~!!"

I don't really like either of them but then again the person who created them tried to make the ugliest and the cutest Asura character so they're probably as bad as it gets. In general I'm suprised to find myself liking the majority of Asuran characters that I've seen. I never thought of it until recently, but I might have to create a Asura thief at some point after the game is released.

I love that they are "creepy" to people.
I plan to create an Asura similar to the one in my icon.

I don't really think hypno asura is all that cute actually, but mine will be adorable...and deadly.  (Mind you, I also think hairless cats are cute so my idea of cute and most people's ideas of cute may differ wildly.)

I wish the Asura looked more like the concept art but my Asura will deal with it ;)

I think I would find some humor in creating a super cute one with big lovable eyes, then giving it a giant hammer to smash things with.
