It certainly looks like an undead chocobo, which are giant, ridable birds, from Final Fantasy, if that was the intent.

(P.S: My first post)
the problem is that we shouldn't really be copying FF in the first place. i think we should just get rid of the Chocobone, since it looks silly and is somewhat plaigarizing.

anyway, this is what i got when i tried to combine the dead horse image and my image.

Turin:
I really like that new horse graphic. What kind of attack to you propose it have? Are you going to put a rider on it, or use some kind of spectral energy attack or make it impact with its hooves or what?

the plan was to have it have two attacks, one melee, something like hoove attack, and one ranged, 'gaze', that slows the enemy (this would be a cold attack). the upgrades would be nightmare, which would be similar but the gaze would be fire, and the other would be the kludde, a water unit that had the hooves attack but not the gaze, and had something like nightstalk for dawn and dusk. (all of these are based on myths and legends, and i got the ideas for attacks from what they do in the myths/legends).

these are the ranged and melee attack frames.

this image is wierd because it utilizes a lot of transparency and blurring. i'm not sure how it will look in-game, but it looks good here.

Chocobones have nothing to do with FF, they are only the skeletons of generic large unnamed ostrich-like birds used as mounts in an ancient lost civilization

none, they are special second level units, like the Ogre is. (at least until the Young Ogre is accepted).
