totally agree with Paulomat4 on this, your art quality is getting close to the mainline one

Wow thats a compliment, especially for someone who's actually not that much into art. Appreciate that!

Here is the (for now) complete shaman line. (:

Done. (:

btw, I uploaded a new version of the faction on 1.12, if someone wants to playtest them, please feel free to do so. ^^
Meanwhile, I will think about how to design the second Shaman advantancement on L2.

I absolutely agree with ForestDragon, you rocks, Bitron!
Especially the sprite on your avatar is great!
And I do not want even compare it with Orcish Shamans, they seem to me quite far from perfect sprites, far from mainline quality.

i meant the CURRENT orcish shaman sprites, Bitron taken a few things from them (tip of the lvl3's staff for example)

Right, they may look good, but they are still frankenstein-sprites. ^_^

well, badass frankensteiners are also respectable, i am talking about the ones whose work doesn't look like gluing a few 9999% different things into a single image, whose work can't be told from a pixel-art from the first glance. you are one of those few people.

Yea, I know they were improved, but not enough for the mainline quality for my taste -

I cant understand what they wearing, is it a bathrobe?

Anyways, very well thanks for the nice words. (:
I was pretty surprised to see them on the facebook page, both Herbalist and Shaman line. ^-^
within the next days, i'll probably continue working on the campaign for this faction.

And on offtopic question: where exactly do I ask compiling problems? The last few hours I tried to compile the Wesnoth2 code, but I fail all the time.

The Technical Support forum or the IRC channel.

Your sprites look great, keep it up! :)

Realy nice shaman line! I could not find any TC at the first level (Maybe the rope for the bone?). I like the TC bling of the higher level. Maybe give him one at the y-stick? Just saw you had a TC-version before. I would like the external bling more. Is it a stone or a feather or a leave?

I've added some more strings and a little stone as TC. It's still quite subtile but still visible enough.
