Summary 0005983: New Lich Felid & Minotaur tiles
Description The current Lichkitty tile is kind of bleh, so to say. So I decided to make a fancier one.

Honestly, without knowing what it is, I though it was a monkey skeleton.

I also made a Lichtaur tile, because honestly - you got necromutation castable as a minotaur.
Gotta rock the dungeon with something a bit cooler than a normal lich tile, y'know.

And if you're telling me that mutations aren't displayed in lich form - you're a minotaur with necromutation.
That's already reason enough for looking a bit cooler. :p

The felid looks kind of cool, although felids can't wear robes.

The lichtaur is too tall (32 pixels is the maximum), and I think the horns are too large, compared to the normal minotaur horns.

Octopodes can't wear robes either. :p

And eh, does it really matter that he's 6 pixels over the limit? (It was kind of intended to make it look more powerful.)
As for the horns thing, I personally about "hate" the way minotaurs, as the race - is in Crawl.

Minotaurs are huge, powerful humanoid beasts with huge horns and potentially stereotypical goat legs! (At least hooves, man.)

Not some silly average human with a bovine head and some cow horns. :(

The fact that Octopodes can't wear robes doesn't mean that Felids can. Strange logic.

Agreed that the horns are too big; see the player doll w/ horns for a better idea of how this should look.

Well if that's it then there's no point having a specific minotaur tile.

I'm implying that the octopode lich tile is clearly wearing something that looks a lot like a robe.

I know that I suck at drawing robes, and just generally at a resolution like 32x32;
But does the monkey skeleton really fit into the theme better than this one?

I will be re-doing all the Lichform tiles at some point in the future -- though naturally that's not with any sense of propriety and you should feel welcome to submit any of your own. I personally feel they should resemble player doll tiles a bit more, if only to make it easier to depict wielded weapons. Though that should be perfectly possible with the current tiles, in any case.

I made the current octopode lich tile as a stand-in. When octopodes were in trunk, they just used the same lich tile as everybody else, IIRC.

I actually made the felid one BECAUSE the current one looks nothing like the player tile.

Lichkitty has been in for a while, lichotaur isn't going anywhere.
