Summary 0008928: New and tweaked tiles for several dreadful creatures
Description L-R

Shadow Demon, Tormentor, Flayed Ghost, Hellion

Kirke, Ice Beast

Vampire, Ynox, Sonja, Hellfire

Several of these are just cleanups, a couple are complete redraws. I added just a bit of glow around hellfire so it tiles nicer with 3x3 explosions, vampires can be shown with equipped weapons. Ynox are a little bit dimmer. Ice Beasts are altered to match their summon spell. See if you can detect the visual pun with the flayed ghost.

Just as a reminder: If the new ice beast tile gets in, the ice form-ed player tile should probably change too.

These look good. The hellion in particular is pretty cool, though I think I'd just fill in the space under his arms with pink, since currently it looks really busy against black. Aside from that, I think I'd put some stronger shadows on Kirke's dress and the ice beast's torso, but that's it.

I should be able to do a few of these edits today or tomorrow -- one of the reason there isn't much definition on the ice beast's body, however, is that I'm not sure how I want to define its shape. Probably something that makes it look craggier/icier, but not too much since it's an early-game monster after all.

Yeah, ice is tricky to draw convincingly. If it were me I'd try to suggest a dark blue core with strong, bright highlights and deep internal shadows; ice has facets and transparency and high gloss, so play on those.

I'm not 100% about this ice beast, but I'm pretty happy with most aspects of it.

Everything is in.
