Re: Crow's Artwork (was "new" unit idea: golem)

another thing you might keep in mind is that most wesnoth units have outlines and your king appears not to. also your using a lot of colours, you may want to try using a pallet. Believe me it will make it look nicer. one final thing is that because of how the legs are positioned it makes it look as if the king is facing away from the opponent and turning his head to look at them

I'm not an art critic or anything, but I think the king sprite looks awesome. Cheers!

Edit 6/6/13:
@Crow_T, thanks for posting the base frame.

I've added a few animation frames to the King sprite. I know they are not perfect viewed individually. But I will say they look pretty cool in game. In my UMC, I'm thinking the King will have a ranged attack only, with his sceptre having a faerie-fire type of attack. Plus the animations happens so fast and once you add in the WML halo effects and faerie-fire missile projection animations, it looks pretty cool.

The mage looks pretty cool, especially the face and beginning of beard. But when recolouring his clothes, you've probably failed to notice the actual length of his beard (that almost touches the ground, I noticed this when I was trying to create a female Elder Mage).

Yeah, I haven't touched his clothes yet beyond a basic color change, and I do want him to have a long beard but struggled with it so far.

And Gimp doesn't auto-correct- I only noticed my error after attaching and was too lazy to bother with it : :whistle:

And my orc mini-boss (edit: looks like I buggered his elbow when I added the armor from the previuos version, easy fix):

Here's an update of the new orc unit (if anybody wants to use him he has a gauntlet for impact damage and a rusty sword that can be used creatively as well :geek: )
