1.15/1.16 portrait edits

Post by doofus-01 »

This is a meta-thread to https://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=52697

This is for some edits to get existing things I did that need some work to get in line with the 2020 Grand Portrait List. I'm not editing anyone else's work here, and any new images will be in another thread.

Revision to Naga dirkfang to make it stand out less (though it won't look like exactly like the fighter etc.) and edits to the scorpion image so that the scorpling and scorpion don't share an image. The scorpion-elder is WIP, the bumps look a bit too much like rivets, among other things, but the general idea is there.

Looking good for the Dirkfang. Colors are completely different from a saurian now, plus the skin and tail give a clear likeness to the fighters while the green crest and head provide a nice accent.

The scorpion could do with more differenciation, though. I see the bumps and the added crest on its back, but if I put the two images side by side it still takes some focus to tell which is which. I think it needs a prominent feature that reads at a glance even in small format. Something that will change its silhouette, or overall color pattern. Large spikes or protuberances on the claws, or maybe with age color variations have appeared on all or part of the shell.
