In Joey's edit, the pants look like those baggy pants ghetto gangstas would wear...

Dayum, it's a lot harder than it should be to get this right. Here's my attempt which I don't really think is much of an improvement.

I think it warped into his stomach now. Why not just recolor the strife merchant's arms?

I did. :P

However, the Strife merchant is slimmer than the Doomguy image so his arms have to be widened a bit. Also, the Strife merchant has bracers on his forearms and, as well as being recoloured, there needs to be a little editing to remove the shape of them. Then there are the Doomguy elbow pads to be added.

The bit on his stomach was there from the previous attempt. I think it's meant to be a belt buckle or something. I tried making it smaller and removing it but that looks worse (in my edit at least) than leaving it there.

This isn't that great but It's my first try at a custom weapon
If you ever played Dig Dug you should know what this is ((I dunno, I just would like to see it as a custom weapon))

Nobody really asked for the full sheet of the repair gun, so I'll just upload it anyway...
The ion spray from Realms667 (which I used it as a base), didn't have a gunflash, so I made one for the repair gun.
Also I re-edited the pickup sprite to look better! for the repair gun that is....

This sprite wasn't used in doom palette, so here is the custom palette I edited *which* I did used...

It's generally a bad idea to do things for a custom palette unless it's for some specific project you're doing.
here's a more doom-friendly variant

(p.s: pls stop ur ellipsis abuse it hurts)

The palette I uploaded is completely optional (not meant to be used in-game or to replace doom's palette), unless you want to cut out the blueish/greenish parts youself. However in doom palette, it look kinda weird like a mini-BFG, but I guess i'll stop uploading palettes from now on...

Except the flash looks pretty suboptimal without this custom palette, which is why it's not a very good idea to design around an edited palette if you're already following one.
not that the doom palette isn't pretty bad, mind

The important part here is that you don't have to strictly follow the palette, just so long as it looks fine when it is paletted. (Which means staying within the color borders the palette sets you.)
Spoiler:
Here's a little example on some recent, dumb sprites I have on hand.

edit@below: me likey, although it's a bit blurry?
