You should tone down the black on your sprites. Most of the time 'black' should actually be a shade of grey.
I know, and well, that's not *pitch* black, but almost. It's like... so dark grey it is black... :lol: Yeah, I'll make them little lighter maybe. But they're not like the ones that are in EE, but I didn't find a topic about Dark Elves.

There are a couple of straight light blue lines on the dress on near her right leg, but otherwise this is awesomely kickass for a non-mainline era.

Sorry for the question, but what unit is this supposed to be? The filename doesn't tell me much. :P

Shadow master: I believe it's the dark elf sorceress.

All the other dark elf units have very dark hair, is it intended that just the sorceress has blonder hair?

her exposed leg to our right looks a little off shading wise i think :hmm: . Well my logic mind says so, while my arty half says it looks fine.

Otherwise looks good!

Very cool looking overall. I just have one nitpick: the hair behind her back (so, on the right half of the image) seems to float in a really weird way. I don't see how it could curl like that, even given a strong wind. It would probably be better to not have it come back up so high when it starts to arc up (or not have it arc back up at all, and just fall down in waves)...

Did that make sense? I find it hard to describe what is wrong with how the hair flows. It just seems off to me.

Very good feedback guys.
Hehe yeah it is an Aragwaith. (Thanks EP for the cool idea of the name)

Anyways first I had an elvish unit in mind after some reviews I got these on. :mrgreen:
If I look now at my sprites I must say they need a loot of work sadly.

The TC parts are perhaps too dark for certain team colors. Not a real problem, I guess; however there are also some "fake" TC pixels (e.g. they look like magenta key colors, but they aren't).

Sample taken with the wesnoth-tc command line program linked in my signature. I used your previous revision, not the most recent, but the result seems to be the same as far as TC concerns.

Yeah, but if you get them the same quality as this, they'll be amazing ^_^ I miss work of your style, man!

Wow, cool! :shock:
I can't wait to see them all, but hmm, the pose of the second one is a bit... unrelaxed. I mean, is that the standing frame? If so, it's a little... hmm... unrelaxed to be one, at least in my opinion.
Check out my sprites!
