Damn you're fast :)
Even though I understand it's not one of the harder tasks :)
Keep'em coming :)

You can in general take ideas from my BomberKeen rotations :)

Nice, but I think they can be improved further.
Thank you :)

On the front facing ones, the mouth shouldn't extend all the way across. I'd make it as a small smile with the ends of the mouth curved downward. But the head being slightly larger than the body, but without any defined neck.

Yes, that's what I meant.
...hopefully Grimson is on to something too :)

Eww.. that's not as easy as I thought at low resolution. Drawing the nose makes it look like a smile. CK has enough problems with bad sprite interpretation.

The front- and back-facing angles look a little flat to me, but I'm not sure how to fix it.

Are all the Keen4 creatures needed, including the underwater ones?

I think there was a keen doom mod out there which uses some keen sprites. You can search for it and ask the guy to let you some of the enemies he made. But I don't think much was made in it.

That's so good! :lol I can't stop admiring how you pixel artists can do that. Yet there it is. (Welcome to the forums by the way. Liking that avatar, too.)
