Yes, i know there's a problem with the bicep. There was a line there and i accidentally shaded it. I recall trying to fix it but apparently it wasn't enough.

It's not that outlines aren't popular. They simply don't look good with the techniques I'm using. There's a tutorial on this forum that uses lines (the same artist did the elf portraits i think), but it's a completely different method from mine. And it's not so much about having an outline. It's actually much more sophisticated.

I am not talking about Kitties Tutorial to draw like Kitty. I really just talk about a line to make the art more pop out of the surrounding. If you do not mind, I could show you an example.

It is more like a 2,5 pixel outline:
Spoiler:
You could test it in game and check which version works better. Blacklines go under light effects! I Reduced the light effect to 60% in the 2nd example. Again I would advice an in game test.

PS: I like the ones you call derpy. Can't wait to see what will be left of it after coloring.

We should discuss this in the relevant thread. I mainly linked them here for nemaara.

Uh, nemaara? Quick question if you're reading this. I don't remember which of the ten symbols, belongs to Uriah. The banners in the editor look like it's the yellow sun, but I'm not sure.
On a sidenote, I'm asking because i figured I'd put some tattoos or ritual scarring on the higher level fiends. Is that a good idea? I intend to give them bloody streaks in the hair, bigger flames and an axe to actually make them look higher level, but i figured the former would add to the whole savage barbarian motif.

I didn’t know nemaara was using the banners from IftU and AtS. Those feature a sigil unique to Uria II which shouldn’t be used in Genesis:

The correct sigil for Uria I is the eye-looking one at 1 o’clock featuring the same colour. The sigils in clockwise order are Life, Water, Thunder, Earth, Fire, Darkness, Light, Air, Ice, Existence.

No, the banners were for IftU and AtS. Also, thanks for the clarification.

Forgot to mention in the announcement for the newest version of Genesis, I updated the boss sprites in the newest version. As always, critique is welcomed.

Well bummer. And i already had an awesome idea based on the old sprite. I wonder if it will still work.

Just a heads up. (I think) I completed the portraits for the Fiend and Dreamwalker lines. I figured the Berserker and Helion could use the same portrait. I also decided to incorporate the black water from the dream sequences into the Dreamwalker portraits. I know it might not look all that good, but I'm terrible at drawing water in Photoshop.

I'm nowhere near as confident with these as I was with the previous batch so input is appreciated.
