If you are still looking for a lever image, I made this, it's just something I threw together right now cuz I'm home and sick.

I personally like the Warden image without the solid definition of the edge...

although it is about as good as what I currently have, it has the disadvantage of looking 2D, when my current one is believably 3D, sorry.

That's okay, I had that complaint of it myself, but I don't feel like re-drawing it right now.

That's because wayfarer drew those images, originally.
And I did the cleanup (which was kinda necessary for team-coloring).



It's just like that time when good 'ol Lo Pan was staring down our group of heros through a beholder, and says "You hear that, Egg Shen? It's the best of two worlds!"

:roll: Aaaanyways, back to getting work done...

personally, I wouldn't think so, but it could explain why he can look odd next to the other units, I'll give it a try.

No, you're right, sorry. I've had another look, and it's not saturation. It looks to me like the brightness/gamma is unusually high. That causes him to appear as though he's lighted differentl than the other units, and reduces the contrast, making him look a bit 'washed out'.

Being fair you made more than a clean up I know my old concepts and they weren't that good.

@RangerM
You should try to play a little with the contrasts on the edges which doesn't mean a one pixel border. Make instead a 2 or 3 pixels width border. Sounds strange isn't it. Make the transitions fluid. One pixel with low contrast is nothing 3 or 4 pixels in a bunch is very much.
