This isn't a sprite, but it's for the UtBS flesh golem, to go with the sprite. Not necessarily the final version, but I'll pause for now.

Hi,
I have noticed that the Grand Marshal's background contains many pixels that are not fully transparent (though transparent enough to fool the eye). When looking closely, this issue can be seen in the ingame help. The Grand Marshal's sprite has a suspicious darker rectangle around it, and is surrounded by pixels of lighter color. This is not the case with, e.g., the General:

I decided to fix the issue and remove the pseudo-transparent pixels. The file below contains the cleaned sprites:

I would also like to draw attention to another issue. The team colors of the merman citizen from Dead Water are somewhat broken:

Thanks. I suspect a lot of these ghost pixels come from anti-aliasing cut & paste. The broken TC might be from the same issue. I'll take a closer look at it soon.

This is another WIP portrait for a mainline campaign unit - the commander at the exit of the flooding caves in UtBS.

It's sad when a speaking character has no portrait, so these are great to see! The faces are particularly good. In the case of the commander, don't forget that the WML shifts the colors of the character a lot from what the sprite looks like on disk. His armor is a yellowish-bronze color, and his blue team color actually shows up as very dark brown.

Edit: The merman team color problem was probably my fault. Thanks for working on it.
