Here's a shot of the online comic "Alpha Shade" which I am desperately trying to emulate; their use of color is great, for example, and I really like the way they shade things. I'm starting to wonder whether or not I should include a full-height portrait instead of these scaled - upper hal...

I like it. Much like the banditry recently included, it may have some significant use.

I would second the addition of cultivated fields as a terrain tile.

Nah, the problem with the hammer is that the hand holding it needs to be about halfway up the haft. Don't believe me? Then try it with a sledge. A "great hammer" such as this is, needs a counterweight of sorts. An oft effective one, and one of the simplest to build is simply a long handle ...

And the PNG. poop on this Jesus, I really don't want to have to whip out Illustrator on this stuff (mostly on account of how I suck™ at using Illustrator). It's just... something lacking. The sketch looked fine ... ugh. what the hell do I care, at this time in the morning? Until some time q...

it's odd, I actually hadn't intended to make her look glum - he eyes have a dreamy, downward tilt, though. Her tiny mouth is smiling, though, even though it's hard to see in the game graphic. Most of the other characters will have a healthy smile on their face (the elven fighter/archer, for example)...

it is worth noting for him, that I will be doing a portrait for the lich, at least, I think, when I get around to it. Liches have dialogue in Heir to the Throne, as do Necromancers, White magi, mermen, thieves, elvish druids, elvish captains, human captains, and orcish captains. Those form the secon...

oh for the love of

um, not that I really would contend either way about anime (being a fan of Naruto, myself), but I think that most people would agree that the work I just spit out was anime. Many would consider it that without contest. The oversized eyes. The childlike proportions (big head, for example). The hair, ...

Here's the png for the druid, and a picture of it in-game. I understand the rationale behind not wanting character portraits redone. There's plenty of work to be done, and redoing it seems silly. Except, consider that almost all of the sprite graphics that were originally in the game are no longer (...

nuther revision of that elven lady. I also came up with sketches of an Orc commander and Delfador, but those are dog [censored], so I'm not gonna post them (there's no way I can "correct" those; those will get tossed, and drawn anew).

So it goes.
