I really like the way you play with colors and contrast. my favourite one is the eyestalk :)

The eyestalk looks like it would be a good replacement for the current one in TSG, although I think the whites and irises should have a bit more detail to them.

Hello zookeeper. I'm glad that you liked my art, and I want to finalize my version of the Eyestalk, in order for it to be better fit for mainline. Attempt number 1: red smudges and veins on the eyes, the pupils are made in a similar style to the original. What is your opinion about it?

These look like consistently good sprites, from your Gnoll line onward I've seen nothing but awesomeness.
Actually, before that everything was great too.
When I see pixel artists of this quality it makes me want to resurrect some of my dead projects in the hope of getting their attention.
...apparenly we can't go with it or something.

Sorry for late reply:

The veins look okay, but is there a reason why they're basically the same colour as the stalks? I don't know if another colour would look better or not, but it seems like an odd choice. The pupil colours seem too vibrant, since they're basically pure red and pure blue. I don't know. Something just seems off.

Zookeeper, sorry for the very-very late reply. Maybe I'll draw a completely new eyestalk, but I do not plan on doing it yet.

Now I want to show my latest sprites. They are loyalists in the setting of the 16th-17th centuries. Maybe someday I'll draw a whole faction.

Loyalists in the setting of the 16th-17th centuries are very interesting idea! And Mechanical's art is brilliant of course.
