Just sticking this here for the hell of it: The old and new sprites for the Manta Fast Destroyer from Disassemble Reassemble. Not so much looking for immediate criticism as relative thoughts, and as a reference.

Spoiler

   Original Sprite             Updated Sprite

     

I don't know about you, but to me it feels a lot cleaner, smoother and sleeker - fitting for its "fast destroyer" role. Also matches the midline doctrine a fair bit better.

Special thanks to MesoTronik for advice on the upgrade!  ;D

That's a lot better than the old version

The new look is giving a much more "finalized" feel to it while the older one looks like a ship that was never completed or rushed to be used in space. I say the new one is better.

The New Manta is pretty good. That said, the little armor spikes near the engines are a bit too long and make the engines look a kinda unbalanced.

Hmm, do you think it would look better with slightly bigger engine bells? Or should they just be moved back a little to balance the appearance? I'd rather not mess with the armour plating any more than I already have.

Moving them back would be just as good Nevermind, it looks fine when the engines are firing.

That said, the lighting of them could use some work.

Technically, the Oculian Gryphon was already renamed to Nadia to follow up the feminine naming for all standard Red capitals.
