These are great! I like the variety of characters and the larger heads that show facial expressions better.

Thanks!

Here is some creature replacement's I am working on.

I am looking for feedback. I am not sure if I am on the right track with some of these. There wasn't much I could use for references other than a few crayon drawings I found and the wiki descriptions.

Spoiler: Underground creatures (click to show/hide)


From left to right:

Row 1: Floating guts, Drunian, Creeping eye, Voracious cave crawler, Blind cave ogre, cap hopper

Row 2: Magma Crab, Crundle, Hungry Head, Flesh Ball, Elk Bird, Helmet Snake

Row 3: Green Devourer, Rutherer, Creepy Crawler, Draltha, Giant Earthworm, Blood man

Row 4: Bugbat, Manera, Molemarian, Jabberer, Pond Grabber, Blind cave bear

Row 5: Cave Dragon, Reacher, Gabbro Elemental, Gorlak, Cave Floater, Plump helmet man

Row 6: Cave Blob, Amethyst elemental, a few plump helmet men for different professions.


I am planning on doing all the common sprites first, but I am open to requests.

These looks great! I'm guessing domestic animals are next? And then possibly trainable animals?

Just in case, I made a list of the tags of every creature that is trainable for war or hunting. There are 35 creatures in the list, or 22 if you don't count the giant variations.

Fantastic, I didn't expect you to do the creatures too!

The style is certainly unique, it's something completely new.

I did go through the raws to check the body-types and colors. There are lots of tiny things that don't quite fit, but I don't think many people would notice. ^^

- Floating guts are less a ball, as a heart surrounded by floating guts.
- Drunian has brown skin, grey hair and purple eyes.
- Creeping eye has a red eye.
- Cave crawler has midnight-blue skin.
- Cap hoppers have pale-blue skin.
- Magma crab has black chitin.
- Crundle has a tail. And crimson scales.
- Hungry head has black hair on its black skin.
- Helmet snake has white scales.
- Greendevourer has no eye.
- Rutherer has grey hair on it's blue skin, and green eyes.
- Drahlta has brown eyes and a golden mane, and ecru colored skin.
- Giant earthworm is grey.
- Bugbats have a tail and "large mandibles". Dark-violet hair on taupe skin and black eyes.
- Molemarians are not mole-centaurs, but naked-mole-rat-centaurs. Aka they have no black hair, they are all just pink skin.
- I would assume that the jabberers beak is not the color if it's white skin or purple feathres.
- Pond grabber has blue skin.
- Cave dragons, contrary to surface dragons, do have wings. " Its wings fall limp at its side." they have green eyes.
- Reachers have "long arms".
- Ingame, Gorlaks have red eyes and goldenrod-colored skin (even though the crayon drawing shows them with green...)
- Cave floaters have 2 eyes stalks with 1 eye each. Their skin is clear, and the gas/extract in them is white.
- Plump helmet men are purple.
- Cave blobs have orange skin.

@ Jecowa: Thanks, that is helpful. I will work on them next. I am more motivated when I get input like this and/or requests. So thanks!

@ Meph: Great information! Thanks for going out of your way. I will make those changes.

If there is enough interest I will continue to create and upload sprites. I originally only intended to do the dwarves, but it turns out I am really enjoying the process.

At my current pace I can do an entire sheet in a few days. I imagine this time frame will shrink as I create more base forms.

Question:

Should I bother making child or animated versions of this stuff or would you rather me work on other sprites first? As of right now I was thinking to just re use the original models for children and just add white eyes for the animated versions.

The most seen creatures areDwarves, Goblins, Humans, Elves and Kobolds, as well as domestic animals, mounts and war-beasts. The rest is fairly rare, especially ocean animals, zombies, children, etc.

Btw, in the ones you made so far, the creepy crawler and cap hopper are vermin. They don't use sprites, but instead rely on their tile number. Since TWBT overrides don't work on creatures, they do require a tile in the main tileset to be used.

I think that children-sprites of domestic pets are useful, but not so much for other animals or creatures.

Animated creatures blink with a "undead" tile anyway and are easy to spot. People will know that they are undead, no matter how they look.

If you want more feedback, try posting the picture on the dwarffortress subreddit. It's quite active. :)

Whatever you find enjoyable. Kid sprite are probably most important with the domestic creatures since players those are the ones players are most likely to be breeding and raising in their fortresses. Then if you still want to draw more kid sprits maybe the underground creatures or the trainable creatures would be the next ones most useful to have kid versions. With there being so many other creatures after these three groups, they probably aren't worth the effort of making kid versions.

White eyes for undead sounds good. From what Meph says about zombies being rare, changing their eyes white sounds like a great way to quickly add zombie versions of every creature you make without spending too much time on them.

Goblin Update.

Spoiler: Goblins (click to show/hide)

This set is complete and available via the download. I will make another pass to improve this and the others down the road.

I am taking suggestions on what I should do next. Let me know!

Maybe megabeasts? They are rare, but they are very memorable, players get an announcement whenever they show up, and are often displayed in zoos.

Or you could to 1 sprite each for the procedual creatures: Titans, Nightcreatures (Boogiemen, etc), Demons and Forgotten Beasts. Of course they wont fit their ingame description, but at least they'd fit the art style. And they appear in every fort (and adv-mode), regardless of biome and region.

Your goblins look great, Oab!

Doing some procedural creatures sound like a good choice to me too. You're not limited to doing just 1 of each type of procedural. Sphr made 2 different tiles for Titans but only 1 for demons. Since most procedural creatures have randomized color and night creature color indicates their type, I'm wondering if "ADD_COLOR" instead of "AS_IS" might be good to use for them.

Also rivers were one of the more popular biomes in a survey from a while back. People are probably a little more likely to embark next to a river, so river creatures might be good ones to do too. (Forests were second-most popular, but there's a lot forest creatures.)

Here's a list of tags of non-vermin river & lake creatures sorted by objects file:
Spoiler: river biome creatures (click to show/hide)

I recommend using Mayday as a template for creature graphics. That's were I got the above tags from. Its creature definition tags were generated by CLA using Quiet Sun's scripts, so they should be good. Also it doesn't include vermin creature tags. The text files for the non-person creature tiles all start with "graphics_QS_ST_CRT_". Don't mix them up with the ones that start with "graphics_QS_ST_PRSN" Those ones are animal people. 

The graphics set wiki page is also a good resource for double-checking tags.

Meph's tileset is probably the best example for procedural creature definitions especially for night creatures. It might be the only graphics pack that includes night creature creature graphics. Night creature includes several types of creatures, so it might be hard to draw a tile that fits them all.
