How about this, this is just the great troll without a hammer. Opinions please, I had to replicate most of the muscles that the stick part of the old hammer was covering but I plan to have it on his shoulder.

Maybe do something to differentiate his right(our left) arm, like having the lower arm not line up so closely with the upper arm? At first glance I actually thought his hand was missing from that arm, rather than raised and clenched.

Comparing the lvl2 and lvl3 of Great Troll and Troll Hero:

On the one hand, the lvl2 Troll Hero is holding a hammer. Sorry if it's a newbie art critic question, but wouldn't it be odd if the Great Troll was depicted with less armament than its lvl2?

On the other hand, your sprite preserves the boxing shorts / loincloth difference that exists between the lvl2's and introduces differentiation between the lvl3 sprites, which I'd very much like to have.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the feed back, so this is what I've done since the last post.

I feel like something is wrong with his fore-arm on his right, the hammer I plan to lean up on his shoulder and change the style of hammer just a bit. Another thing I plan on doing is making his left arm kind of behind him, like he's got his hands on his waste in a sort of stance that makes him look stronger, either that or do the same as the level 2.

The defend animations for the ulfserker are actually the idle animations (idle 1 and idle 2). It's not really imperative that you draw them, but it would be nice to have. I'll put in the ones for the berserker.

The great troll arms aren't the right proportions, look at how long the troll's right arm is compared to his left. You could also make the legs a little longer or widen the stance. :hmm:

I am not quite sure to follow. the great troll sprite you guys work on is a sprite for the lv 2 or lv3 troll hero?

So I've done this since my last post, still don't know what to do with it's left hand/arm, I feel like I have to make the hammer handle either metal and/or thicker and longer. I may also make the pants more baggy and bigger.

While we're on the topic of troll sprites, the lvl2 Troll Hero's hammerhead can be mistaken for his leg/shin, can't it? (see the screenshot I posted, top left)

I don't mean to look Lordlewis' gift horse in the mouth; I just thought I'd bring this up in case it informs the design of the lvl3 sprite.

a slight angle change of the hammer would fix it

How about this? Now you can see part of his foot indicating that the hammer isn't his leg, I also personally haven't ever mistaken the hammer for his leg, but I used to think the normal troll's club was a giant brush :lol:

I polished off some of the features of the new troll, but I don't know how it's going to be animated...

I may need to smooth some more pixels out though, opinions?

I don't think it's quiet there. The troll Hero has a much stronger upper body is better build then the lv2 troll.
Using the default lv3 body for the lv3 troll hero doesn't seem right.

Troll heros arms appear to be stronger even the lv3 troll arms ...

How does this look? I think the next part I need to look at a bit more are the legs.
