I don't have too much time to commit but thought I'd try getting one of the tougher guys started. He about needs a 100% redraw every frame except the nose and eyes.

The front- and back-facing angles look a little flat to me, but I'm not sure how to fix it.
Shading?
In the default EGA the Inchworm doesn't use shading so using it on only some frames looks a bit odd. However, I tried an experiment using the doom palette to add some subtler shading:

It looks a little better.

Okay, going to work on the Mimrock now.

And thank you KeenRush. :)

This one took a little imagination:

I can only imagine how sneaky the Mimrocks will be in 3D. :evil

So now that's 5.1 out of a total of 16 Keen4 creatures done. Any update on whether you'll be needing the underwater ones? Also, do you have any priority of which creatures should be done sooner?

Which creatures are other people working on? I ask because I don't want to waste time drawing one if someone else is already doing the same one. If nobody else has started on the Treasure Eater I think I'll do that next.

Not much. You actually can't see them moving when they're behind your back because FPS duh.

Yeah, I thought that was the point too. And it's a good point - it'd be nerve wracking to know one was around and you hadn't zonked it yet. Especially if you're low on ammo and can't afford to zap every rock you see.

That's a nice progress :love
Any update on whether you'll be needing the underwater ones?
I assume yes, but land ones are obviously first priority. For more details we better wait for Tormentor.
Also, do you have any priority of which creatures should be done sooner?
I'll let Tormentor answer that one.

We've announced Chapter 2 release on May 20.
But Keen secret levels will be left for Chapter 3, so you have quite some time to finish Keen 4 enemies.

This is brilliant stuff man, thanks a lot for that :)

Concerning your questions: Underwater ones as well, and no need to rush anything, we have plenty of time for Chapter 3 :)

You guys should just do an outright Keen 4 themed mod... :mort

That mimrock is so good. :lol

Hey guys :)

Wow, those are some great sprite art! I'm especially impressed with the Mimrock, and Berkeloid sure is a challenge to tackle.

Here's my attempt at Lick. Boy, this guy has a lot of frames to work with :stoned

I very much second this. Image

Edit: I was just looking in the .zip with the graphics so far, and it looks like the Poison Slug is unfinished. Is the one from that unfinished doom mod not being used?
