Wow, kitty. You've really surpassed yourself with the Nightgaunt, it's pure win. Kinda reminds me of Voldo.

Heh - thanks for the nice comments on the Nightgaunt!

That's a really cool concept! I can't help but feel that it's kind of squat, possibly because the skull appears small (thereby making the armor appear a little too large), and possibly because of the way the robe flares out to both sides just under the chest plates, which sort of gives the appearance of high hips (I know it doesn't have hips, it's just the impression I'm getting).

The blade of the scythe also looks pretty flimsy compared to the thickness of the staff.

Haha, it was not meant as an insult. Voldo is awesome. Reminded me of him because of the spikes and the mask.

Spectre is already looking very promising. :)

personally id rather see the skullshade facing downwards, bit more of a grim feeling perhaps then..and uh..the spectre had a sword on the sprite unless we're having some changes to ghost sprites as well? the scythe was the wraiths domain..maybe i messed up the name, either way lev 2 had hood and sword, lev 3 had scythe and helmet.

The translucent glowy armor is cool :)

but the hood doesn't look like it fits the posture :( and its state is too good comparing to the rest of its tattered form

edit: yeh i did mess up the names, ok so spectre dow have scythe, but it also has a kind of mask/helmet
Like cats? I've made a whole faction of them to kick ass with!

Just wanted to chime in and say that these match the unit concepts perfectly, and also rock in their own right. Thanks kitty! :D

:hmm: Waiting to find out how this develops, but the look is very strange right now and I'm not sure I like it. Though this is likely caused by the white-ish lineart and the fact that shading's still missing.

Basically finished - if nobody finds a serious flaw I'll post the transparent version later and will be finished with WSAS on schedule.

Brilliant, just brilliant. :D Both the Nightgaunt and Spectre are incredible - the best Undead portraits so far IMO. The Spectre also displays glowy spooky eyes done right. And both of them have a perfect blend of ethereal ectoplasm and solid metal.
