Welcome To My Daily Art Thread


This thread shows my progress concerning the custom art of my era ELE - Eternal Era .

You could consider creating one faction inspired in lovecraft. Dunno, got the idea from viewing the curious advancements from the cuttlefish.

nice sprites! :) however, you put this thread in the wrong forum section (stuff like units sprites/portraits is supposed to be posted in the Art Workshop, and Faction & Era Development forum section is for feedback). It's no big deal, since you can just ask a moderator to move your thread, though. anyway, some critique about the sprites themselves:
-the palettes of the bottom-right monster's head/rest of the body are a bit inconsistent with eachother. Would be nice if you fixed that.
-most units have basically the same armor right now, maybe add more uniqueness between unit lines, and levels?

ok thanks for the advices, i see the thread moving already happened.
Ur totally right, now that i spent double much time for a single sprite, these ones look kinda rushed in comparison to the new ones i am doing

How is the development of the era? Sorry for doing such spam, but the thread was somehow inactive, would be appreciable if more often you can tell us the status of your progress :D

Looks good to me. Are these kind of savage elves?

Like 4 different level 1 of whom 2 have 2 advancement options?

And a pet of course?

Well the OP says "closely related to cephalopods" so I'm guessing they're more like the squid people from Splatoon.

So these head gears are actually tentacles? They look more like forrest people playing with wolfskin and dear horns to look scary. Dressed up as Wendigo or so.

Here goes my first post...
Always wondered why there isnt a full skeleton faction yet out. For some reason they all enden up having horns

spear fighter (lv1), guard (lv2), fortress(lv3)

As far as I remember:
shield + armor from RE (Vyncyn) - recolored
shoes from Burned Lich RE (Vyncyn) - recolored

EDIT: do you think the transparent background is better then the dirt terrain? I could use grass terrain too

Excellent sprites! However, I think it add more variety if the advancements had unique headgear, like, for example, helmets.

Thank you Forest Dragon. I agree that they coul need some variation for lv2/3 on the headgear. maybe i am just not used to see Skels with helms and other stuff
