rofl, it took me a second to realize the image was animated. You're right in that it's indistinguishable.

let's do some gravedigging ( again ) ;)

Wow those sprites are really starting to show some age.
Recently I stubled upon my old dragon and yet again I had to give it a quick makeover.

Also I realised that I never published the newest version of the portait

I hope you are not disappointed but I thought maybe someone could use the updated sprite.

Looks great! How awesome it would be to have two completely different dragons to choose from in mainline! I suspect that this can be added once the freeze is over--at least to the new development version.

Whew scary (but in a good way). I especially like the scales, and generally the whole sprite looks :awesome:!

The only particular critique I can come up with is that the tail's perspective seems a bit off, possibly because it hits the ground on its side. I could be looking at it wrong, though.

:shock: Awesome.
Of course, as I'm already using your Dragon in both TSoG and ARL, I'm interested in using it. Are you planning to review also the other animation frames?

Great. I updated the one in TRoW using this.

I see what you mean, I'll try to fix that.

Yeah I do. Currently I'm working on the flying animation:

These dragons look great! IMO there are some compositional issues with the portrait however, namely 2 tangents are happening, which I've highlighted. The rendering part is well done :mrgreen:

Not sure about the spit coming from it's mouth. The rest is great though.

Has anyone made a unit out of this or should I write the file myself?
