Great work! Keep it up!
A question i have, why do you decided for 2d objects in a 3d world?
This is not a Keen mod, those are just secret/bonus levels in huge unrelated project, that is soon to be released.
Project/mod that has All-2D enemies, Bosses and small scenery - as intentional creative decision.
There are no 3D enemies or pickups in our mod (not only in Keen levels of it), and there is no reason to change that for a few bonus "tribute" side levels.
Not only it won't look the nostalgic tribute it intends to be - it wouldn't fit the retro style of the rest of the mod, and will require unproportional and undesired efforts for such small unrelated bonus.

so, TSK voted for Lick. if needed, I could continue with this angry little blue beanbag monster.
a sheet like the one you've posted earlier would be extremely helpful to organize those missing frames. it was so much easier to get things done with a visual sheet like that at hand:

Damn Nisaba, we can't thank you enough for these frames... Berkeloid now is complete, still have to implement new frames and finally test it!
About the Lick, did the same for Berkeloid. Here we go and thank you very much :dopekeen :

Just finished all Lick frames. I revised nearly all existing frames as well. so you wanna make sure to overwrite your old graphics with my new interpretations.
here you are:

This is utterly brilliant Nisaba, your speed is impressive. We have already implemented it into mod as well, what's left now are some sprites for the Arachnut, the Council Member, the Dopefish, the Blue Birdm the Treasure Eater,the Princess, the Skypest, the Wormouth, the Sprite and the Schoolfish - sounds worse than it is, a lot of these enemies only miss a few single bits. Ozymandias will be able to prepare a sheet for you I guess, so it's easier for you to get through this :)

Damn you are impressive Nisaba, Lick frames have been added some hours ago already and they works fantastically!

As Torm said, those are the creatures with some missing frames, BlueBird surely the one which needs more... So I have decide to pick up these, Council Member and BlueBird. Have a nice day :garg
