:/ I like it too, but its shading is really all wrong; it's technically vastly worse than the new one imo.

Well this project is going slow isn't it. But after a looong break i've done a few more sprites..heck i don't remember which ones i had earlier already, so here's an overview of what i have so far
comments? something to fill the gaps?
the forum seems to have reduced the image a bit, but if you click it will display the proper size

I love them all, especially the Buddhacat.

However, although your sprinter looks great, try redrawing him (as close as possible to what you have) facing SE.
Although the buddhacat does not face the same way, it looks ok because it just like sits there, probalby levitates. I also suspect that he'd look like he was facing you from whatever direction you approached him, some mysterious feline power.

err the sprinter actually needs something completely new, since what's shown is just a conceptual placeholder..and it's from abandonware so doesn't exactly comply with the GPL requirements
also the jaguar crest needs some helping, and the fur of the archer line needs colour adjustments to fit the head, and the rats need to start burning properly and..hey now that you've mentionned facing i noticed the fliers are wrong too. Thanks :)

I also wonder if after all this time perhaps someone appeared willing and able to help with the missing bits

In general, there are some good sprites, but my main comment would be: more differenciation between levels. Actually, most of the unit lines are just recolored when they level up, sometimes gaining a little accessory at Lv3. Make them 1-3 pixels taller everytime, buff up their weapons a bit, extend their costumes... Don't completely redo the pose if you don't want to (it's a lot more job), but their gear and general size could be nudged up.

Keep it up :)

I'd love to help out, but I'm supposed to be helping several people at the moment, and I'm not, so...

If I send you something, don't feel obliged to use it, if not, don't expect it.

Suggest you keep the sprinter's ...ateletic build.

updated with some fire to actually burn teh rats, and some rather awful sprites for the tigran command line

maybe i'll resign from the sprinter line completely? flykits could fill in the scouting part

Those look really recognizably like Leomon from digimon.

No more so than any other large, anthropomorphic lion.

Thought I’d post the TC’ed version to allow you to take your own conclusions.

I've seen a lot of faults with this picture (with which Max found it hard to agree), but when trying the TC ingame that was not one of them. Mind specifying?
I'm not sure it was that digimon but he did get waay to much inspiration fom one of them (which was ouchy cause that made it not look like a tiger which was my request :/ ). S' one of the reasons I asked him not to give the 'little' buddy 5 fingers on the foot

Hrm, I didn't scroll down that far.

But still, unless it's a direct copy of a digimon sprite, there's absolutely nothing wrong with it. Again, it looks as much like the digimon as any other generic anthropomorphic lion.

Personnally, I think it could be cool, but it lacks contrast and outlines a lot (especially the torso, arms, feet and head; maybe the cape too)
