cool. I'll remember to archive my stuff from now on. Anyway, here's new delfador, in a talking pose. I don't think I'm gonna change Lisar, I understand the argument but it looks good and I don't see why I shouldn't base it off here higher level sprite. Konrads sprite isn't wearing armor at all at first either.

Also, I've posted some campaign story sketches in the story pics needed thread, in case anyone wnats to make comments. Watch out for spoilers though.

Deflador is an old, wisened, hardened wizard. He's not going to look like a dappy old man, but rather be a commanding and powerful figure. I think the approach Pickleslide is taking is perfect, that's exactly how I picture a grand wizard to be.

How can you say that doesn't look good? And isn't Li'sar based off of her upgraded unit graphic? What's wrong with that?
Elvish Pillager wrote:Other than that, I really think they're high quality. :) Unfortunately, it's not generally a good idea putting some new portraits in and leaving others in the old style. So, could you make some better Delfador and Li'sar portraits?
Um... that makes no sense. He's redoing all the portraits in his style, rather than creating ones complimentary to fmunoz's original portraits.

Other than the point on Li'sar looking different to her unit (and how hard would it be to recolour the unit or the portrait) I don't really understand the objections. Pickleslide's work is very high quality and a marked improvement over what is currently in the game.

I don't understand your statements of misundestanding, so I can't help you. :( Anyway, all the images now except Li'sar's are very good, I just don't like the portrait of Li'sar/

Maybe if we can change the portrait for the level. So when she levels up she can use the one already done but if we can get a new one for the lower level.

This portrait, though, doesn't even look all that much like the level 3... but yes, that would fit enough, I suppose. Level 2 really needs a different portrait, though.

Elvish Pillager does not think the Li'sar ones were good enough for game. Thus. he thinks none of them should be included until a suitable replacement for li'sar is found. Make sense now? :)

BTW, portraits are cool. There's a reason i asked pickslide to do SE portraits in the first place... :)

I've gotten some impressive artowrk for TDH just now. Tanar (orc) had foot-long elven ears, and Gwiti looked rather young, but the art was of a very high quality overall.
