Concept Sprites For New Faction/Era

Postby ghype » November 1st, 2017, 4:06 pm

]Here is the first display of sprites closely related to cephalopods (e.g. squids, octopus, anything with tentacles).
Those are based on ChaosRider's (Wotg) Gold-Fighter and Cosmic-Medium units, so credit goes to him.
Since I took only the heads of those untis, everything else is heavily, manually added and franked in the best possible way.

It's still work-in-progress, but I hoped you could give me ideas on what kind of other units this faction could be missing, since it has only 5 base units sofar.
For the more experienced sprite artist, you could give your opinion if my sprites need in general more work. U can clearly see how sprites got better over time, so i gotta go back fixing the first ones anyway.

here is my to-do list regarding the sprite artwork:

- alter robe of mage
- position heavy spearman
- position roguemage lv3
- position mage
- refining left arm roguemage Lv3
- refining heavy spear weapon
- refining crossbow Lv3
- tentacles
- add full armour to shotteress‚
- colouring ?
- lighting/shades
- conturing
- cleaning up the layers
- shadows

Thanks in advance for any helpfull comment.

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
