The detail on the tail seems completely different between the second and third pic. Odd.

Jeeez!!


The 3/4 quarter view is a little extreme, it's almost side-on.

That looks very cool but if the intention is for it to be a doom sprite, the fact that the graphic is much wider in the side view than the front view is likely to be problematic in a whole range of mapping and rendering situations.

Well, the problem is that Doom entities are square. So, if you have an enemy that is significantly longer than it is wide visually, it won't match up with its actual size.

You'd have to decide what width to make the underlying actor. Do you make it nearer to the width or the length of the sprite? Do you have a compromise? If you make it big, then it can't fit through gaps that it looks like it should be able to (from front on at least). If you make it small, then bits of it will stick out past its bounding box and could poke through walls or it could even appear/disappear if it was at the edge of your view and standing in a small sector.

I removed it. NeutralStunner quoted what i said below, as it was a request more than a sprite.

A rather large muzzle brake, possibly.

Was thinking of some kind of large heatsink or compensator. They're mostly just leftovers of my clean crossbow sprite I used as a base.
It's going to be a 'slow light' laser vulcan in my mod.

The sigil won't get more frames because it was a total bitch to edit, even if it was super simple: I just added an extra steel beam across the frame, and doubled the techy holes and cleaned them a little.
I'm using it as a zap-ring to force monsters into painstate (so it's just a lot of high-diff railbeams). Also you can just basically just copypaste the sigil flash over this and it'll work just fine.

Wait, what? It's an erratic color blob. You're basically asking someone to make a complete sprite out of it. That's not how things work. :|

Also: make it large and from the front you'll be able to hurt it by visually shooting next to it (blood will spurt out of empty air). Make it thin and you get the reverse problem: when shooting at it from the side, you can see your shots disappearing through the sprite harmlessly.

I like how you used the Nail Borg Commando's gun as a grenade launcher. I like the medic too.
