Welcome To My Daily Art Thead


Here I post every day all the sprites/frankens and art concerning those units.

Faction #3: The Fallen
Faction #4: Vikings
original post
This post will serve as a place to dump all my frankens (and other stuff) I did over the last year.
Most of the individual units use parts from Ageless,WoTG and Golden Age which were heavily edited by myself most of the times.
Some unit parts were done from scratch too, if needed.
Specific Lines took entire units made entirely by other artists, who will be credited accordingly here and on release.

Have fun!

PS:
comments below are directed the original post since I only renamed it.

PSS: you can leave me suggestion here on what to work next, or message me on the servers - I am an active player too.

PSSS:As you might see the first faction i present are the horned skeletons. Once they are done, a different comes

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?

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
