Zerovirus' sprites for UtBS

Postby Zerovirus » June 5th, 2010, 5:01 pm

Naga Hunter. Possibly as a replacement for the ancient sprite used in UtBS.

Naga Hunter looks really cool! Also, sorry if this sounds rude, but I kinda don't like the thing hanging from his arm... I mean, it looks like plastic... But anyway, just ignore this post if you want as it's mostly just something with my eyes.
Check out my sprites!

I somewhat agree that it looks mis-placed or strange...
Though I don't believe it's that horrible looking, I mean where else would the band go... it's tail?

The solution is not to ask where else it could go, but to ask whether it needs to be a band in the first place. The Naga sprites have a good line in shiny, lacquered-looking armour, make the helm part into something similar.

Heh, Hold on, is it both Naga and Merfolk that are roman based or only Merfolk...?

I thought Naga's used semi-automatic crossbows with incendiary thermite arrows . . . my beliefs that this race is awesome is now shattered.
Current Project:
Insane Hermit
That second campaign will probably become a book instead, or a movie or a game or something. Sorry guys.

Nagas are inspired by the near/middle east, and the indian subcontinent, rather than rome and greece.

Neither had thermite, so their origins are from some other culture.

Re: Zero's art. News updates yay.

First, beginning on the day after tomorrow based on when this was posted, I will be in China on vacation and thus without Internet or computer access. Don't expect me in the forums or making sprites for a month. At least the good thing is that I'm going to be on TV.

However, after discussion with Espreon, I am to redesign all the graphics of UtBS, to facilitate a complete reboot of the desert elves faction, as well as other additions to the post-apocalyptic mythos. That will begin as soon as I return, and I don't think I'll have time for much else over summer. Thus, every other project I'm onboard with (not that I can really think of any) will just have to take a backseat.

See you all in a month or so.

That's some great news. I'm really looking forward to those sprites.

Have a good time in China. See you in a month or so. :)

Welp, here you go Espreon. Version 0.1 of the new Eloh for UtBS. I'll work on her more when I get back; this is the last sprite for me until the return.
