Unit: Recolored Undead Knight - IMPLMENETED

Post by The Pendulum » Fri Jul 24, 2015 6:33 pm

It's been bugging me a lot lately (being a lover of the classic undead color scheme) that the horse drawn for the Undead Knight is a light reddish pink. Well anyways, I recolored the horse a dark grey, maintaining the original shading pattern and design, in favor of a more classic, sinister looking undead knight. This simply makes more sense to me (that the horse is a darker color) because most, if not all, of the other units, maintain a very dark color scheme--namely the wraith.

All credit goes to the original artist; which I have no idea who that is.

Anyone else prefer the darker Undead Knight horse (with red eyes) over the reddish pinkish Undead knight horse?

Edit: Added the original reddish horse image for comparison.

I've also been wondering why he had that color for a long time :)

The darker one looks better imo

The recolor is nice, but the problem I have with it is the same with either one. The current image has a flesh and blood, living horse where it should be either a skeletal horse or more zombified.

exactly: the red horse was ment to show an undead de-skinned horse or something.

Oooh, my mistake! I definitely didn't know that... How about I draw some exposed ribcages and intestines on the dark horse? Too gorey perhaps? Personally I think it would fit right in, but that's just me I think. I like gore. :S

the darker color is ok, but needs to be a definitely dead horse :)

I will get to work right away on something more gorey then! Blood, bone, and entrails! :D

Am I correct in assuming the original artist did a good job with the depth texturing of the original unit (making it look 2.5 to 3D?)

you should add some details of unskinned parts and some bones (maybe a part of a leg where flesh is absent)

Some more revisions to add more gore, and make the undead knight look more like a knight.

Thanks!

Now if I could just get Daniels feedback to see how I can get all my images voted in to the game! ;D

That is exactly what you expect to see from an undead army putting out cavalry. It no longer looks like a live horse is tolerating a dead rider.

Really a good one (i like the one with the horned helm but it might also good for an upgraded version of the undead knight).
I don't think you'll need a vote for this, daniel can just put it in if he like it.
