Hah, very cute))) But she looks like a horned khajiit from TES
I thought that female mino is just a cow isn't it?
I have talked with Spectral in private and it looks like he is planning two females to keep with the games' numbering principles.
One of this type and one that is like your cow "classic". There are quite many varieties of cows in real life. Some of them very different visually.
We (humans) have the nasty habit of mono-culturing animals. If if someone says "cow", you will probably imagine the white variety with flecks.
But the idea of there being essentially subspecies in fantasy races the same like there are different human races (Caucasian, Asian, African, Indian, Eskimo, Tibetan)
is quite interesting.
This might actually explain why there are so few green and blue trolls as well.
The same site he got the portraits from shows the two playable Minotaurs like that, and since the game keeps balance in character variety, we can guess that there should've been two males and two females, like the standard, and since the second female is missing everything and the first female had a detailed render, we can presume that it was cut during development. The reason is currently unknown, my wild guess goes to the time running out on them. Like the poor friendly Ogre village in Ravage Roaming. I wonder if you had originally to choose between them and Minotaurs. We shall never know. Someone should contact the original devs, I would literally pay money to find out about these things!
AND FINISH THE GODDAMN JOB.
