That redraw looks really good, the best of the lot in my opinion.

Much better now. Now he looks great.
I can say that in most cases eras that are based on mass frankenstains looks really pathetic, even disgusting, but yours look ok. The only one.
Still there are some strange things.
For example, I cant understand what happened with necks of Dark Priest and Spider Priest. Pose on horses of units of Dark Rider line looks doubtful too. Giant-Titan line looks doubtful, some other issues. But in general there are quite a lot of good frankens in you era.

Most of Darkelves sprites are pretty old so they lack quality of the newer ones. Dark Priest and Spider Priest should have their faces half coverd, but you are right it looks more like they miss part of their neck. Thanks for pointing it out, I'll try to rework those sprites. Giant and Titan are selfmade (aside from the head and weapon), so there are some issues with anatomy and lightning. I want to rework the Titan's armor, but creating images for some units (Amazon Rider, Hare rider, Colossus) has a higher priority, as they have only placeholder images right now.
I'm willing to rework the smaller sprites though (any Infantryman smaller than an Ogre), as it doesn't take up much time.

I redid the head of the Priests and made 2 versions, with and without a hood.

Also I took a first draft on the Shadowwarrior.

I'm unsure about the shield. It might need to be moved a little, so I drew in roughly where his arm is supposed to be (red). The shield is supposed to be attached to his arm, but if it doesn't work out I could also use the shield from his old image.

In general much better than it was!
And versions (first ones) without hoods are better. Hood on the naked torso looks very strange as I pointed before.

Are these some kind of dark elf or are they human?
As for the sprites, I think they are done very well, especially the hero. I won't repeat what others have said about hoods but consider making female units which have hoods perhaps.

Oh, and if they are female dark elves, feel free to redraw my infamous geisha sprite :P :lol:
...apparenly we can't go with it or something.

Yes they are dark elves. The hero (last image in previous post) is actually the one I want to replace with the Shadowwarrior, because the hero looks very similar to the Elvish Hero. I just posted him because I want some feedback if the new sprite should have the same shield or a new one that is slightly turned.
So here is how he might look like with a turned shield and with the old shield in comparison (Most of the shading is still missing).

If the old hero sprite already looks good enough it wouldn't be worth the effort to replace him and I could work on other units, such as the Darkelf General (old sprite for reference)

I could make a few changes to the new Warrior image and pass him off as the lvl 3 advancement (replacing the General) or I could make new sprites for both of them (hero and general).

I'm working on the Luz faction for Rashy Era. It is a religious human faction containing Angels, Priests, Inquisitors and some more. Currently most sprites are placeholders, taken from "Era of Myths" and I plan to make some less frankensteined units before I upload it.
Since I couldn't find any reasonable sized wings for the Angels I have made my own, modeled after the big ones I could find. I'm not 100% happy with those, but I think they are good enough for now, so I won't work on them. Feel free to use/change them for your own sprites.

I reworked my darkelven princesses and made one that might pass as geisha

I got some new part form my pc which really changed how the graphics appear on my monitor, so I need some opinions on the new sprites I made.

Here is the old version of the traveller for reference:

________________________________________
This is the new version I made. I generally like the new design, but I'm unsure about his shirt. It only has 4 shades (5 with outline) and might appear a bit stiff on some computers (looks good on mine).

________________________________________
In this version I changed his head since his old face does not look as good on the new resolutuion. Also I did some changes to his trousers, but you can ignore those.

Feel free to comment on anything about those sprites, but I'm mainly looking for opinions on his shirt and face.

All of these are cool.
What I can add is that you made these in style and colors of Vilkai faction by Bitron.

Well my faction existed before his (as far as i know), but both have a similar theme.

Absolutely loving the shadowprincess-geisha!

I made one like that once, not nearly as good though!
