The captain's frames, from a cursory glance, look MUCH cleaner; the transparency is pretty much fixed, and the swords are a lot better.

Did she change clothing for that frame or is it just me?

I was thinking more like this:

P.S. I just did that by drawing over the lines in the same colour using GIMP's paintbrush tool. That's automatically anti-aliased.

That stuff I told you about to clean up the captain's sword?

You need to apply that to the archer's bow, in those two defense frames.

The new Desert Scout.

I am thinking about recoloring the horse. Please do give advice on how to recolor said horse, or if I should even recolor it at all.

EDIT: Apparently the post background has obscured the blade of the sword quite a bit.

Hmm, out of curiosity... Can you make him ride a (giant) lizard?

This would fit swamp elves, but not forest elves, i think. What about a camel?

Last time I checked, there was quite a lot of lizards and snakes mentioned to live in the deserts, not every reptile out there dies without gallons of water ;) This bunch has nothing to do with forest or swamps and if we can have giant scorpions and cuttlefish inside a desert oasis I can't see a reason not to have a trained giant lizards as a mounts.

FM, I don't see this as an absolute must, if you don't think you can make it just recolor the horse a little bit and maybe add some decorations to the upholstery. But if you could mount them on the lizards... That would be quite a feat.

I found the lizard request to be quite...amusing...actually. Thus came this little sprite. :lol2:

I can give it a more serious try, of course.

:lol2: Good one ;)

A little more serious try would be much appreciated though. Maybe with Image this as reference?
