Working on an enemy I sketched for Nukage - the Dark Priest, a Revenant-tier medium caster type monster. I've still got a lot to do on this one, but the basic outline is there.

EDIT: Some progress. Also, messing with a fuzzy shroud around the Darkness elements. I'm not entirely satisfied with the shading, though. Also, a Darkness Spirit, which spawns after killing a construct such the Dark Priest (and can reconstitute its original form after some period of time).

EDIT II: Meet the Dark Acolyte, a basic Darkness-entity construct that, if left to its own devices after a long enough period of time, metamorphose into a more advanced foe, such as the Priest shown previously. Apart from that, the Acolyte has basic ranged attacks, and can sometimes even be benign until provoked.

I'm really iffy on the fuzzy shroud effect, especially on the Acolyte. Also, gotta redo the feet - was just being lazy. I also might change the color scheme somewhat - I just went with this one to start with.

EDIT III: Fucked around with the "Relief" effect in Paint.NET, and came out with these (original versions are to the left of each for comparison).

I don't know exactly how I feel about them, but they definitely present an alternate design path (possibly for a different project?).

Love the quality on the sprites. After seeing how big this is, i thought this was for Archvile replacement!

:shock: These look amazing. Finishing the full set is going to be a big job but worth it. There can never be enough tech-magic fusions!

lol dangit, I was going to name one of my enemies the dark priest! Though, I wasnt super committed to it in my case, so no big deal.

it isn't that far off from Dark Bishop, which is in hexen. i don't think there is anything wrong with two different types of dark priest, although I can imagine "altar droid," "beepin deacon" or "dogomatic" working equally well under the right circumstances.

Speaking of, I actually have a sketch for a "Dark Bishop" that's basically the next step up from the Priest - was wondering why it sounded so familiar...

If it helps, you probably still can - hell, I might end up changing the names in the future.

Crappy outline for an Acolyte walking animation. I'm probably gonna have to redo some of these frames.

Image

Attack animation for a Priest beam attack - haven't decided if I want the floating arm pylons to fire beams as well or some other projectile(s).

EDIT: Further progress on the walking animation, though I'm still fairly dissatisfied with it (there's also the fact that this is all the 1 angle - I haven't started on ANY rotations yet):

Image

EDIT II: Set up the animation and its pacing - apart from the unpolished nature of the sprites (ideally I should make the torso pieces move as well), I think it's coming along better than I initially thought it had.

So... LossForWords made some really neat Doom 3 ROE super shotgun model rips. Almost fullbright, but still a solid base.
So then I edited the overall structure to make it less elongated and more fitting by average Doom SSG standards, and then drew lighting and shading on it. Why? Boredom lmao
First time I manually draw lighting and shading on a nearly shadingless flat sprite, and I'm happy with how it turned out, so I might try this with other similar rips later. And this SSG's reload, of course.
In the pic you got the original, my structure edit, and then the customized version (which has grey and yellow metals), a fully grey metal variant, a more classic Doom style color scheme and a variation of that with blue metal, because by now everyone can tell I love Doom 64.

Added the purple shading to the "skin" areas and gave the shoulder and torso pieces a bit of sway. I'm hoping to give the Acolyte the ability to attack while moving (I might well give this ability to ALL of the Dark Clergy as far as head-crystal beams are concerned), maybe a standalone running animation.

EDIT: Here's a version that's closer to Doom-sized (currently testing it with X.Scale 0.9 and Y.Scale 0.75).

Image

First frame is idle, complete walking animation is afterward. Alignment guides are also included (with the small green ticks indicating the center axis; the feet are also lined up on the Y-axis).

Very basic starting point for idle frame rotations. There's a lot of inconsistencies and issues I still have to iron out as I go, but I'm getting there...slowly...

Making enemy sprites with complete 5(or 8) rotations are by far the most tedious and challenging task to accomplish, especially when you're making it from scratch. So you're doing hella great job. Keep it up!

I remember seeing a sprite sheet for PC Wolf3D styled energy weapons around here, namely a railgun with big red magnet rings and a rocket launcher-like thing that fired blue fireballs. Does anyone know where they are?

Ignore this, they were on Diehard Wolfers, sorry. :oops:

Last night I went through some annoying lengths to rip this AR-10 from an upscaled Metal Slug 3D screenshot since I failed to rip the models. Though I did rip the textures, so after getting some upscaled mess in the absurdly small in-game weapon viewer, I then edited the model's (also AI upscaled) textures onto it to improve the detail, then manually edited a bunch of things and shape alterations because it was a very low poly model.
So yeah, I love Metal Slug and you can tell because I've bothered to do this, and made like 3 pickup sprites for this gun in the past. Enjoy the legendary [H]
