Though I never played Fall From Heaven II for civ4 I know it had a lot of respect with the community; It's pretty cool you made some contributions to it. I'd be willing to try to make some stuff for you but I'm not sure my style would fit well with your faction. I'm pretty new to the spriting, so I ...

I do plan to anti-alias the spear a bit and add shadows at some point, but I hate the GUI in gimp so i do all my work in paint until I HAVE to use gimp for transparency. EDIT: Quick question: I find it really annoying that the units switch their hands when flipped so I may want to do seperate frames...

Just another WIP unit for constructive comments: The phalangite. He is an alternative L3 upgrade to the Hoplite.

EDIT: An additional unit, a level 1 healer, the herbalist.

Although my productivity with these guys has dropped off quite a bit the last 2 weeks, I am still working on them. I finally worked out what to do with the body I made for the Peltast: Instead of him being a Peltast, he will be a Scutarii, a heavy infantryman from Iberia. The Scutarii will be an alt...

The head should be in the proper angle because it was ripped straight off the horseman unit. I put his head in the same position as the heads existed on the bodies that I based the spearman off of. He had the peasant/townsman's body with a new spear, shield, and armor. I think that whether his head ...

I added a little more shading to his legs, looking at it now, his right leg could probably use some more, but I don't plan to lower the greaves; I think his proportions are pretty good as he is, but if others think I should, I'll consider it. His helmet also got a little darker to match the other he...

I have a few new units to share for constructive criticism. These units were drawn from scratch; no frankenstiening of other units except for the faces where visible under the helmets. Both units are still without weapons, as I want to get their bodies sorted out first. I don't really think they fit...

Why does the spear head get smaller? Ah! Thanks! It's odd-looking things like that I can no longer pick out after staring at little blocks of pixels for a long period of time. Hopefully it looks more consistent now. if that is supposed to be taking the blow, it seems a little awkward. It is indeed ...

Made a few changes to the third frame: tweaked the his left foot to behave more like I envisioned (Feet and boots have proven difficult for me :P ) and rounded out that sharp elbow. I also darkened the spear shaft where it crosses the body to try to keep it from appearing as if it may be held behind...

Comments/critiques on these frames:

I would like some comments on these sprite frames and how they animate. I just tonight downloaded a .GIF animator to see how my frames flowed together and discovered that what looked okay scrolling my eye down the page in paint looked terrible when actually put together :( This guy and these three f...

I'm quite new to this myself, but I think weapon specials can be created in the same place. Here is an example I have successfully gotten to work: #----------------------------------------------------------------------------- #Weapon Specials #--------------------------------------------------------...
