These look great! Small suggestion: it would be nice if the lvl4's crown had a dark-yellow outline instead of black. also, the lvl2/3 look like they're facing southwest and not southeast :hmm:

ForestDragon: your opinions are very welcome. all these untis are part of a faction which is already done.
I will re-work all unit images upon release and make use of all of your suggestion since they all are helpful.

About the lv2/3: i found one way to make unit advancement variate more in order to franken more easier.
i select the entire sprite (i work in photoshop) and flip/mirror it horizontally, but keep the the head facing to the southeast corner.
this way the body faces the other way, but ultimately the unit looks still in the right way.
u will see this technique in many more sprite coming in the future.

as we talk, here is the #4 dayily art, this time the second advancement for the lich adept:

Lich Adept (lv1), Lich Underlord (lv2), Lich Tyran (lv3)

Here a new line, the witch line.
Basically took the female default adept line and turned it into female skeletal line.

Witch (lv1), Sorceress (lv2), Maistresse (lv3)

As far as I remember:
lv2 headwear + lv3 backwear from Eoma/Destroyers (Inferno8)
lv3 staff from Extended Era/Dark Elves (Noyga/Mythological)

Got to say I really like these sprites, not only are they individually good looking, but the advancement lines are clear and cohesive.

@ Flameslash: thanks alot. but still i have more respect to those who actually draw their sprites from scratch. mine are not.

@The_Gnat: You are entirely free to use the sprites as you want as soon as I posted all my skels (not many are left). Give it a couple more days so you can see all of them and maybe make a better plan on how you want to use the sprites-

Here is the second advancement to the skeletal witch at daily art #6. Note that i took this advancement out of the coming faction since its makes faction-wise no sense anymore, but not posting the sprite would be a shame.

Witch (lv1), Wraith (lv2), Banshee (lv3)

As far as I remember:
Here is the thing. I do not remember where i found the base sprite for the lv2 so i can not credit it. But all i did was recolouring her initial red robe to the default undead dark robe and give her some horns.
Starting from there I simply made her robe bigger, her hair longer and the horns bigger for the lv3.

EDIT: So to say, this is nor really my work, i havent franken much here. I just recolored and added an advancement for an unit which haven had one yet.

Post by ghype » April 18th, 2018, 4:48 pm

Here is a new line. It wont appear in the faction unfortunately, but i really like the lv1 sprite.
the lv2/lv3 feel a bit off tho..

Skeletal Hero (lv1), Skeletal Bone Shooter (lv2), Skeletal Headhunter (lv3)

As far as I remember:
lv1/lv2/lv3 armor comes mainly from Minotaur / Era of Strike (various artist)

These are all great! I love the mage knight best. Superb! Keep up the good work.

Re: ghype's Daily Art #10 - Horned Skeletons

Post by ghype » April 19th, 2018, 10:42 am

thanks a lot. but most of the credit goes to sleepwalker (propably). All i did was to change its head/hood, add staff, double scythe and armor on the horse...

here is another line. a more funny one. but yet another one not featured in my. too much uncredited parts and some stuff taken from outside wesnoth.
hope its still ok to post them here.

Skeletal Dragonhead (lv1), Skeletal Lizard (lv2), Skeletal Dyno (lv3)

As far as I remember:
lv1 dread/spider lich body/arms from WotG (author unknown)
lv2 poltergeist robe from Golden Age (The_Gnat)
lv2 head from desert striker from Pixeljoint by Drazelic aka Zerovirus
lv 3 completly from Redshrikes skeletal dyno (only re-colored the bones to wesnoth skeletond efault color and added some blood)

I'm guessing this one is based off of the spider lich? You know you should really make an era or something ghype...
