I like it a lot, it feels very militaristic.

Hmm... too dark. Sure, the colour fits the stealthy military style, but in game wise, it'll just be another thing player wouldn't recognise till the scorch it/blew it up.

After a year without actually doing it, I just put myself back to kit-bashing for your biggest misfortune and for fun, so to make a little pile of garbage sprites and as it is always good to have outside opinions. Well I'm here. On the other hand, although I tried several things from the flight decks of the biggest, I cannot put anything to make them less empty without it looks ridiculous or totally incoherent... Or simply That I like it. Same problem with the paint job to find a color that is not already used by already existing factions. (Vanilla or Modded)

Mmm... these look oddly appealing.

You got some parts somewhat right, though most are a bit odd and sort of just there for no reasons (or looks like they'll snap off at any time).

The flight decks of the carriers are a bit off, mostly because the lighting style is different and the placement.

Thank you for your suggestions and comments. For the size by cons, it is true, but it is a little late. (I should have realized it when I did.) I'm not going to make a creppy resize, or I would have to add stuff and rework it to make it bigger. I'll think about it.

It's better ?

@Makina: Definitely much improved in both cases!

Wyvern is 100% correct about the math.

@Inotna:  Big improvement!

@PCCL:  I feel like this sprite has lost some contrast levels and the colors feel a bit muddy- you might try backing out of the sprite, converting to grayscales and then working in color as Soft Light / Overlay to restore some saturation.  I really like the concept of a Venture that's actually combat-worthy :)

@Makina:  the second versions are a major improvement, largely because of the pixel-art work to tighten up contrast levels and bring out details, but you may want to rework the lighting on the carrier bay to make it a bit brighter and consider a different color; it's too close to the hull paint color and it looks a bit like a poorly-shaded area of the ship.  Here's a quick rework to demonstrate:

Hey, you're not wrong! To me they look like a cross between Junk Pirates ships and those from Tore Up Plenty. They've got the same almost organic look to them that lots of JP ships have, but combined with a haphazard, almost random mechanical construction that's reminiscent of the TUP kitbashes.

(This isn't a bad thing btw: just a note on the style.)

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
