|Summary||0008192: Tweaks and alterations for several early-game monster tiles|
Increased saturation and contrast on the goblin, hobgoblin, and Ijyib tiles, which made details a bit more clear (who knew Ijyib had a sweet scar over his eye?) and appended a shadow to hobgoblin tiles. Gave the Necrophage a more dynamic stance, one which can display wielded weapons as well. New cockroach tile with visible head -- anti-aliased so the new angle looks okay.
Two variants on kobold tiles: I never liked how busy their tiles were, and so I removed their green undershirts and darts. Additionally, I added highlights to the metal armour that big kobolds wear, and re-colored Pikel's helmet and breastplate (zoomed in, it was clear that he HAD a helmet, which I had never noticed before). I also brightened up all of the kobold tiles slightly.

In addition are Orc tiles. The first row are the more conservative alterations -- these simply allow wielded weapons to appear for wizards et al.
The second and third rows are alterations to previously-submitted Orc tiles of mine. I added some highlights to the sorceror/high priest tiles, recolored the knight, and upped the saturation/brightness of the wizard and priest to match the tiles currently in the game.
I think these are more distinct from one another than they used to be, which was the main issue that people had with them before. I could continue altering them, and I could go on to re-do Orc uniques if folks think it is worth the effort.
The first set look good, and I'll put them in when I get a chance.
As for the orcs, I (still) like your new looks for the casters, but there are a couple of things I'd change:
First, normal orcs and both priests have a strap over one shoulder, and it's perfectly diagonal, which looks sort of strange. It should probably curve around their torsos.
Secondly, I feel like the warlord (and, to a lesser extent, the knight) need to be a lot bulkier. The existing warlord is a huge, hulking dude, noticeably larger than other orcs; this warlord looks skinnier than the wizard.
Finally (and I guess it's a matter of taste), I kinda like the petulant glare the existing orcs have. Yours seem like reasonable guys.
|I like that petulant glare too. I've updated all the orcs and added Roka, Urug, and Nergalle. Blork is, of course, perfect just the way he is.|
|Orcs are in, with some minor edits (mainly lengthening the casters' robes, since they really need to stand out in a horde). Cheers!|
|Edits-to-edits: this warlord is red, but still has the big pauldrons; this Roka has the skull, and also has a halo. It is totally cool if you don't feel like changing to these ones.|
@roctavian: While you're reworking the orc tiles, could you please change Nergalle's colour scheme?
When I created the original tile, I tried to balance three requirements with my very limited artistic talent: show she's a spellcasting orc (based on orc sorcerors), make her sufficiently different from the plain sorceror, and bring across her being female. I ended up recolouring the sorceror pink and adding garish make-up to match her "especially ugly" description.
I'm sure you can do better. :)
(I also sent you an email. Hope that's okay.)
|Got it and done!|
|The kobolds and goblins and such are in. Thanks for submitting, these are great!|
|closing many ancient, resolved tile submissions|
