  • Is the resource ENTIRELY my own work?
  • If no to the previous one, do I have permission from the original author?
  • If no to the previous one, did I put a reasonable amount of work into the resource myself, such that the changes are noticeably different from the source that I could take credit for them?
If you answered no to all three, maybe you should consider taking your stuff somewhere other than the Resources forum.

You could try drawing some sprites or adding extra details.

I'd prefer that they stay like PC Wolfenstein, except larger and better detail.

Why?!

Okay, honestly. Why do people still start with projects like that? It's not that there is one single case something like a 2x sprites project has ever been finished...

True, but perhaps one day... :?

Here's an idea I have been thinking about:
Instead of painfully redrawing said sprites, it would be smarter to do 3D models with bone rigs, renderer with fancy shaders that would make them look like sprites. You could easily do 16 rotations with smooth animation and even make the sprites many times larger. Not to mention, you could "easily" do new animations and modify the models to create new variants of monsters.
But that's not an easy task. If not done extremely well, the result may be worse than the awkward 3D model mods for default monsters and weapons.

That's something I love doing, and I use for one of my current projects:

Why would you even care how it is done? Maybe someone wants to do it the "old" way. Let them.

Also, not everyone is proficient in 3D modeling. The average person who opens Blender is going to close it right away and uninstall and never look at it again. There's way too many buttons and gizmos and way too many keyboard shortcuts you have to memorize. Even *I* am not proficient with Blender, yet, and I know enough about 3D modelling that I could do it, myself. But I have never grown comfortable with Blender - I have always used things like OpenSIM and Cinema 4D.

Sure - you could use one of the many alternatives available but most of them require money and not everyone is ready to drop a grand just for Doom modeling.

In the end, art isn't what tools you use or how many shortcuts you take. It's nothing more than doing something you enjoy the way you want to do it.
