with a fresh version of NoM also comes a modest update to graphics..

the elementals all got the teamcolored ball, the eventual L2's should be getting tentacles.
here are the water and sand ones...

at last the higher level eyes...

there are now temporary icons for the unhatched and eye melee.
the L3's of cat and butterfly received quick makeovers to look palatable.

These look great!

I would suggest more TC warts on the L3 eye.

Incredible, just incredible. I would suggest using the previous versions of the water elemental as a Lv1 and saving the more awesome version for Lv2.

The cat line looks like this for a long time now. Could use some improvement it seems. Lacks team-coloring too.

Wow tis been a while but your skills are getting even better
TC could probably go into the manes of those bigger kitties, no idea about the small one
talking of kitties..you wouldn't get tempted to have a try at making mine look more like something?..in fact there are plans for more than just them, including some randomly monstrous things, but i'l have to get those into publishable state again first
Like cats? I've made a whole faction of them to kick ass with!

yes, can't believe it's been a whole year.. thanks for the offer but I don't like the idea of a felinian faction much. there should already be enough "randomly monstrous things" around the forum too (and other, less frequented places :roll: )

The berserk advancement of the egg is being replaced with a defense-oriented unit. Here is my shot at a sprite for it, and an accompanying rough L3. I'm not sure about the L3 one, it might benefit from some adjustment. In the making of the L2, I also made some tweaks to the other branch..

the lev 3 looks like an overgrown sheep - wooly and not nightmarish at all
neat piee of art, but I'd question if that's your purpose for it
on a side note the front of the lev1 seems to reveal a skull-like shape, the lev 2 has something resembling that as well though twisted sideways, perhaps that's a better way to go further?

No, I was not eaten by the hyperspace beast... I'm back and I'm bringing a little sprite update with me. Expect more to follow. :roll:

Work in progress of the unstable elemental forest/bramble form. Should be less stiff than the old version. Hopefully the final sprite won't look worse than this.

Hi everyone.

Some news for the Nghtmares of Meloen art thread: starting today, I am being commissionned to produce portraits for those units whose visual concept are set in stone, i.e. the cat and eyes lines.
I will produce 4 portraits altogether and the Nightmares team (namely, mystic x the unknown, the acting art director) gets the final say on them, but as ever, you are welcome to bring in comments and constructive criticism.

For now, here's a concept sheet for the cat line. Thumbs #1 to 15 in the upper half are for the L1 cat, while #A to O in the lower half are for the upper levels.Similar to what I recently did with the wraith, I will next produce refined colour concepts based on which one(s) receive your favours.

I really like the pose of C, it show a lot of cattish attitude to me.

I have a harder time picking a favourite for the lover level, so I'll have to go the elimination route and say I'm not so fond of how the tail splits in 6 and 10.
