Re: monster design contest, win and your design gets sprited

Strife needs some love. I've been hoping at some point I can get a sprite-set of something like this to make an actual shocker type of monster for Strife. I have most of the code already done; it involves stealth and hit-and-run tactics. :twisted:

Edit: Something like the Techpriest Magos from Warhammer 40k could be awesome, too, but nowhere near as awesome as the other one.

i have started spriting the entries for the contest. i have started with capj, i have taken liberties in the design to make it more doom friendly

so some good news and bad ones

first the good, all the entries will get one whole rotation sprited. this will be done because a monsters design can change widely from a single 2d representation to a a 3d rotation. a single sprite would be misleading

the bad, the project will continue at an even slower pace than it has so far. in part because of my many compromises. also no more submissions. all the ones already submitted will be sprited, but if someone submitted many they will be combined to reduce number of submissions, the same applies to desings with similarities

expect more soon, and im really sorry for being so of schedule

thanks! i took inspiration from the grand carrior and the queen of bees, sorry for the changes, the posture change was done in part to prevent the sprite from going trough walls. for now im calling it light carrier, since it would be a smaller counterpart to the grand carrier (its roughly cyberdemon sized)
