This is about the units art from "The Vilkai" a new faction im working on. I'm not an artist, so work's going quite slow and I'm glad about every help I can get .. so if you guys need something to do, feel free to post some ideas!
own spriteart by now:
Deer Rider - Line
__________________________________________________ Hunter - Line
__________________________________________________ Watch - Line
__________________________________________________ Herbalist - Line
__________________________________________________ Warrior - Line
--------------- __________________________________________________ Shaman - Line
they will get finished, and there will be more soon. (:
Unfortunately, I have not much time to do the spritework, and by now, I have nobody else who can help me with that. If somebody is likely to do the Sprites I'm happy to introduce him/her into our projects. (:
All the best!

Hello. Sadly I have too many turnips in my kettle at present to help you with sprites (that and the fact that mine aren't so good). But a comment on the portraits. Can I ask a special favor? in your campaign, please don't "Wesnothify" those images too much. I think that as long as your style is consistent and your technique reasonably good, units/portraits drawn in another style really lend flavor to Wesnoth UMCs, the only problems come in when people start mixing their own portrait style with the canonical portraits or their own sprite style with the canonical sprites. Having vanilla Wesnoth Sprites and your own flavor of portrait or vice versa is not only fine, it is great.
I think you draw well and your pixel art is not bad at all, but I wouldn't have really noticed it if I hadn't seen your drawings and would like to suggest that you use these as the basis of your portraits.
In case of the Vilkai and the Campaigns wich will come along with the faction, I represent a team of by now 3 Persons. We are "Alresu", the dialoque-Guy, "Lieferheld" the art-guy (who's also drawing the scratches) and me, the programming-guy (and I maintain the Threads).
So, thanks for the feedback, I'll hand it off to the Artist (:
Well, the actual pixelart is done by me (the 9 selfmade ones), but after i saw the Portraits, wich were done after i made the Sprites, I definitely wwould like to redraw them with the portraits/scatches as basis for the sprites. .. well.. if I find some time for drawing them. But still, it would be great to have some support with the sprites, especially with animation .. this is something i totally lost with.
They look good. Very consistent theme and well readable sprites (probably not easy with the deer riders). Surprised to see the guard is a left handed person, but with all the sprite flipping going on it does not matter.
I would consider brightening up the sabre blades somewhat, especially on the swordsman.
