Guys, the time has come.
We're near done with Chapter 3 and this is a time to map secret Keen map.

I'm sure Keen map in this will honor the character, the game and the community, and can bring more attention to it.
We have (with your help, and Grimson especially) some enemies done, but we want to cover all Keen 4 enemies.

We need the help of this community to make the rest of Keen 4 enemies 8dir.
Which enemies are still missing?

Well, there are quite a few.
Of the big tasks I'd say - Wormouth, Council Member, Blue Bird.
There is also Sprite...some others seem to be left 1dir due to...being relatively symmetrical or probably looking passable (but sure would be cool to add rotations for those - Arachnut, Treasure Eater...)

Some other (like DopeFish) uses existing art for...sort of rotations, but needs proper rotations as well. Berkeloid has only front rotation added)

No, we can get proper permissions later, I wanted to see if there are useful artbases for existing Keen 4 enemies that can help me with additional rotations.

When is the deadline estimated to be?

I’m already swamped currently with IRL obligations, so unfortunately I may not be able assist much, but I’ll share this that I was working on awhile back.
It’s unfinished, but maybe someone could use this as a starting point.

I'll let Daniel, the head of the project, to address this.
Well, I assume we have no hard deadline, it's our non-commercial project after all.
But it's long time in development so we are really starting/wanting to wrap it up.
Keen bonus level mapping already started, so this is relatively urgent for testing.

Hello friends and Keeners :)

to make things short, this is our current state when it comes to Keen art:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/07xvha4pn607 ... fBLfa?dl=0
(ZIP: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wdyz45fc4hu1g ... n.zip?dl=0)

We have already a lot of work that is finished but a few things are still remaining. We would be happy to get some support from pros around the community here when it comes to the last sprites missing :) We are using 4-angled 3D, which means for example for the council member, we have only side sprites, no front and no back. I think most of you will get what is missing by checking the dropbox link.

To be more precise, the following enemies are missing additional 4-directional sprites (missing):
  • Council Member (8 sprites)
  • Dopefish (4 sprites)
  • Blue Bird (9 sprites)
  • Berkeloid (? sprites)
  • Skypest (4 sprites)
  • Treasure Eater (? sprites)
  • Lick (6 sprites)
  • Mad Mushroom (2 sprites)
  • Poison Slug (3 sprites)
  • Schoolfish (4 sprites)
  • Wormouth (6 sprites)
  • Sprite (8 sprites)
It's really not that much (but hard to do if you are not a sprite artist) If you have questions, feel free to ask :)

Best regards,
Dan

That one was made before by guynietoren it seems.
The thing is that file on dropbox doesn't open and is not recognized as valid image file.
[*]Poison Slug (3 sprites)
This is strange, as I thought I finished those just a few days ago, even told you so.

I've updated ProYorps BlueBird and added three more graphics.
