NB: the shiny level 3 with the big axe is by Eternal, not me. I just suggested you use it ;)

i like your version too IPS.

the only thing is dont like too much is the helm crest.
what about some horns, or simply the old crest a bit more exxagarated/changed.

your last version will be also used, i might change the helmet for myself if needed. thank you very much i like the version.

Hmmmmmmm.... I will try to work in this, I will wait if I have another suggerence.

But, I'm new in the sprites thing, so I can't do much more than using the franken. But If I can make a new version I will try :)

just as a side note:

of course a shiny/gold colored death knight/undead looks a bit out of the place in general.
so i had to make him less shiny.

but great sprite anyway

I did do some experiments with the shield. Have a look and drop some feedback.

Bad sarcasm I presume?

It is a very nice shield, but I can't shake the feeling of seeing the pi sign on it...

I looked closer and, uh, yeah, we have 3.14159 nestled neatly in the middle of the shield. Also, the shield is rather dark for a sprite; I know it's meant to be mouldy but.

the shadow looks a little off also. I dont think a giant bird thing would have a small circle for a shadow

You have a point. It isn't even a Wesnoth-style shadow; Wesnoth uses hard shadows which (sort of) follow where the body is.

EDIT: It's not the right colour either...
