Tycho's Ten Thousand Trinkets Thread

Post by Tycho_X »

This thread will serve as a shelf for my sprites to collect dust - that is, unless you can find a use for them! :)
These sprites were frankensteined for the most part, though I have added finishing touches by hand to some of them. Others may even be entirely original (such as the Kraken, which is a bit bland at the moment).

Only Default and Ageless Era (AE) sprites were used. Credits to the innumerable artists that helped in the creation of those!
I hope you can find a use for these units; I haven't the time to complete my own campaign, sadly. More will be added every now and again, though, as I enjoy this process immensely. I realise most sprites are one-offs with no attack/move/block animations. If you really want these added you can send me a friendly PM and I'll try to get those sorted for you!

You can credit me in your projects, though I can't enforce this. It is appreciated though!

Units above are replacements for the 'Lantern Archon' and perhaps even the ‘Master of Light' from AE's EoM - Celestials.
Ribbon and ribbon-less variants included, pick according to your own fancy!

Sprites above are replacements for the 'Garou' from AE's EoM - The Warg.

I played around with the colours and hues here. The Garou is described as being an old being; perhaps for this reason its fur has lost its vivid touch. Or perhaps instead it transforms into a bloodhound variant - up to you!

I added lightbringer https://github.com/ProditorMagnus/Agele ... 3bab1e57f8 https://github.com/ProditorMagnus/Agele ... 49fc993651. Do you plan to do something for dawnbringer too?

Will add/choose the other images later.

Yes, Dawnbringer looks... unfitting, also. I'll probably do that one tomorrow. Cheers!

I'm never completely satisfied with the results, as such I'll post updated versions on the regular. I am thinking about redoing the Serpent's shadow completely.

Up next on my list for AE are: Dawnbringer, Ethereal Dragon, Master of Light.

This is, I hope, the final 'Lantern Archon' rework. All original animation frames were ported to the new sprite.

The sprites above showcase reworked sprites that lacked any/proper contours. These reworks should help them stand out on the map.
There are many more AE sprites lacking contours; expect to see more of these types of posts soon.

I modified the standard spider sprite to be more in-line with its next evolutionary phase: the black tarantula.

Regarding future updates; I am now working with Ravana to rework some of AE's content, as you have seen in previous posts. I'll still upload custom sprites and frankensteins from time to time though. This is on my current to-do list:

- Ballista sounds/graphics to AE ships
- Kiss sound effects for Slavers - Harlot
- Contours High Elves (in progress)
- Contours AE ships (in progress)
- Light Archon animation ✔
- EoS Free Saurians Spider re-skin ✔
- Fix High Elves missing textures: block animations

Today's post features a rework of the 'Roman' line of ships, namely the galley and the trireme, which lacked not only contours but also saturation in their colour palette. Repainted by hand with reworked shadows.

Finally, I've continued the EoS - Free Saurians line of units with the creation of the Saurian Champion, which up 'till now had been using a placeholder sprite. This is, again, meant for AE content, but feel free to use them in your own projects.

I love the way you've done the sails/flags on the triremes.
If presented with the opportunity, I would take great pleasure in becoming a world ruler.

Thank you Tom; though credit should go to the original artist, as I barely touched the sails themselves.

Today's post features a basic upgrade over the standard Lizard Rider, which lacked a level 2 sprite. Helmet looks a tad odd, but I went for a unique design.
The E-Serpent has been completely reworked, and after many hours, I can say I am decently satisfied with the result. Expect E-Hatchling level 1 and E-Dragon level 3 sprites to follow soon(-ish). The Serpent also features a basic high-low floating idle animation; I used Archaic's Despair 'ghost' animations and tweaked them slightly.

This part is for Rav: :P
