[Sprite] Cacomental

So, I had a bit of spare time today and I decided to exercise my not-so 1337 spriting skills. I didn't want to just do yet another recolour but I didn't want to do a huge sprite set either so a Caco edit seemed like a good idea. This was the result:

Yeah, I know, I'm no Eriance. :? It probably looks a bit too cutesy with that big green eye too. Ah well. :lol:

I've stuck it in a WAD but the DECORATE is nothing fancy: its an almost identical clone of the Cacodemon. The only differences are that I gave it a separate melee attack with a bite sound and green blood. So, if anyone feels that they want to do anything with it, a more interesting DECORATE would be advised.

In the zip is a WAD and a sprite sheet. Load the WAD and summon a Cacomental to see it in game.

If anyone feels that they want to do anything with it, be my guest. Just the usual credit is all I ask.

[edit] And here is Mk2

Looks better but it still needs some work. Still, I've had enough of it for the moment.

This time summon Cacomental2

Aww, it's adorable...

Not bad, though I'd have given it arms or blackened its horns to make it a bit more balanced between caco and pain-E.

This monster has the prerequisite of "caco-painse", I'm afraid.

I thought about arms but decided against it simply because I would have felt the need for 3 "walking" animation frames like the PE has and I didn't have the time for that. The horns are a bit darker than the Caco ones... but not that dark. I tried making them even darker but, despite it being an apparently simple task, my attempts looked awful. :lol:

[edit} Awww sod it. I'll have a go giving it arms and PE horns. :P [/edit]

Nice. I thought about doing something like that but it seemed too much like hard work. :P

Anyway, I've uploaded an edit. This time it has pain elemental horns and arms. As a bi-product, it means that I made some death frames which, with a bit of tweaking, could be used for Pain elemental death frames if someone wanted them to leave a corpse. There was a thread about that on Doomworld some time ago. I'll see how easy it will be to do them tomorrow.

They do look quite cool now; much better than yet-another-recolor. (Skulltag, I'm looking at you.)

Thanks. They could still do with a bit of work but it is beyond my patience and skill to take it much further.

I also quickly threw together a pain elemental corpse. Again, it would need some work but it's not awful.

Summon PainElemantal2 (he only fires 1 lost soul when he dies because he doesn't explode. :P)

Yeah, I know what you mean, it'd be a bitch to do the entire set. Plus it doesn't look that good, but I felt like doing that sprite just for shits and giggles. :P

Anyways, that's a pretty awesome sprite you've made and that pain elemental corpse should come quite in handy. :wink:

Was that a remark about Enjay's nationality/personality/profession? :P

Heh, pretty cool, Enjay. :) I was the one who made that thread on DW, but ironically now I don't remember what I requested it for. :P Oh well, I'll see if I can make some use of it anyway. ;)
