    Doom redesigns v2

    Sup guys. I've tried my hand at redesigning all the original Doom enemies once before, but never really got too far, because I was stumped at how I'd approach certain enemies. I wanted to try again, and this time I have a bit more of a specific design aesthetic in mind, and am planning on sketching everyone out before committing to any final pieces. My idea is that I want to redesign them in such a way that doesn't look outright scary or monstrous, but 'gets under you skin' creepy, eerie and horrifying in a much more subtle way. I want to integrate elements into all their designs that make them unique, but also play up the whole 'blasphemous' imagery and aspects to further the idea along. This doesn't mean I want to go overboard with it, as I don't want upside down crosses, 666's and pentagrams on everything (which are all tried and cliche ideas now) but rather subtle hints of aspects that are similar. Also giving them a heavy-metal ish (again, not in a derivative way) sort of vibe in addition would be apt. I don't want Doom 3 (as much I love many of its designs) to influence the look I'm going for, and I want the original designs to at least somewhat stay intact, as much as I may drift away from them. So, I have the list of enemies here and some of them are already accompanied by my first round of very rough design ideas, but I wanted to open it up to suggestions and idea from the other boardmembers here. Zombieman/Former Human, Shotgun Guy/Former Human sergeant, and Heavy Weapon Guy/Former Human Commando: These guys I'm not super concerned about looking unnervingly creepy or anything, they're zombies and will never be that creepy to me. So, I think making the armor not like modern generic space marine armor will be the key part. That and facial expression. Imp: Not wanting to incorporate generic spikes, gave him some growths that resemble roots with thorns on them, also gave him an indicated crown of the stuff. Don't know exactly how to approach the face, so any suggestions will help. Pinky Demon: This one has the opportunity to be more animal-like, so making it stand on all fours is something I want to keep. I want it to be lumbering and dumb, but still creepy of course. Mancubus: I like the smaller face, one that's less monstrous. I love Doom 3's Mancubus, but don't want to go the Cthulhu-like route. I also gave it large nails through the wrists to be what attaches the guns to its arms as another symbolic nod. Baron of Hell: This one is the biggest departure so far. It's the only 'palette-swap' from the original series, so I want to make it and the Hellknight to look considerably different. With the Baron being a more powerful enemy, I want to make it more of a sophisticated kind of imposing rather than brutish. I took the two horns idea and fashioned them like the cap of a bishop, and excess skin is used as a cloak of sorts. It will still have the goat legs. HellKnight: I might want to play off the Roman gladiator helmets but in an organic way. Revenant: Its design probably won't change too much from the original, so the pose is where I'll bring in the creepiness. I was thinking something reminiscent of a pose that Christ may have been put in in renaissance paintings, with arms at the side and palms facing the viewer. Cacodemon: Unsure so far. Cyclopic creatures are hard to make look subtle and disturbing, so any suggestions are welcome! Any symbolism references you can think of are good! Spider Mastermind: Going to make it look more feminine and H.R. Giger influenced. Makes sense as a queen, controlling her younglings. Arachnotron: Playing off the Mastermind being their mother, I figured doing something with a baby skull influenced look would be cool. Pain Elemental: Same issues as the Cacodemon. However, I do know that I want its mouth to be full of skulls and faces. Lost Souls: I don't want them to be just skulls with horns, so maybe there can be a variety of them. Cyberdemon: I've redesigned this dude before, so he'll be among the easier ones, but still any suggestions are welcome. Arch-Vile: Definitely want to make them more feminine. At least androgynous with a suggested effeminacy. Unsure if I'm forgetting anyone... May or may not include the Icon of Sin when I'm done with everyone else. The Soul Cube too. Will post some other sketches after I get some replies or suggestions.

    I definitely wanted to do something different than the 'invaders from mars'-based look of the original mastermind, but I figured it wouldn't gel with absolutely everyone. Glad you like the rest!

    Ha, not taking requests at the moment, as my plate is pretty full with client stuff for quite some time! Oh, also, the project is now under wraps, finished up the Doomguy last night! UAC Personnel Log: 0012_93- The Marine According to recovered UAC Military personnel files, a marine was punitively sent to Mars for assaulting his commanding officer who had ordered his unit to fire upon civilians in a riot at UAC Earth Central. The marine, along with the rest of those stationed on Mars, were consequently posted to Phobos after the security request was granted following the Hell Gate's appearance. Assigned perimeter defense, the marine was left alone while the rest of the unit proceeded inside the Phobos base; they were killed shortly after their arrival. Audio and video logs have confirmed that the marine was responsible for clearing the two moon bases of their demonic captors with an almost inhuman sense of simultaneous brutality and precision. After being transported to Earth and then to Hell itself, the demonic forces were wiped out, and any stragglers were taken care of by the resistance or went into hiding. The personnel files at UAC Earth Central were found to be corrupted due to the damage the facility undertaken following the invasion. The lone marine's name is unknown, and when asked by Earth's resistance, the marine didn't know either. It is as if something fired off in the man's brain from the shock of the invasion and the subsequent bloodshed and violence… perhaps a form of extreme PTSD. Based on post-invasion tests and therapy, this shock theoretically allowed him to block any human emotion, essentially snapping him to become a berserk killing machine. Though the marine didn't talk much, a name would frequently pop up during his therapy sessions; Daisy. Eventually, the marine cut off ties to the UAC completely, and was never heard from again.

    Thanks so much for the support guys! Glad to see a lot of you recognizing what I was goin' for! Anyway, finished up the Icon of Sin the other day. Wanted to paint up like a literal icon, like those found in Byzantine art, instead of doing another strictly character-based piece. Doomguy is sketched up, should have him done before the end of the week! UAC Hellgate Artifact No. 00D2_M30: Religious Tablet Shortly after the Marine made contact with the resistance, UAC procured an ancient stone tablet, depicting a demon shockingly close to the doomed soldier's first-hand account of the biggest demon he had ever seen. The following set of verses was inscribed on the back. 1For it is commanded of my brethren- of Dis, of Pandemonium, of Erebus and Limbo- lay waste to thine Enemy's children and theirs. 2O' Baphometh, Pantocrator! 3The shores of Hell will run red with the blood of the Oppressor's kin, and their flesh shall be consumed. -Baphometh Canticulum UAC Demonic Entity Log: 014- The Icon of Sin After plunging into Hell itself to vanquish Earth's destroyer, the Marine lost all contact with UAC and the human resistance. Describing what he had experienced, the Marine told of a gargantuan demon dwelling inside Hell's Tower of Babel, larger than anything he had encountered prior. After he had relayed what he had seen to UAC, the research team noticed a connection between the Marine's story and an artifact the team had recovered months before. Seen in icons and hieroglyphs, the entity was described to lack an appropriate vessel body, instead attaching itself to the inside of the tower. It was said to have had a special mode of attack, different than any other of Hell's forces. Spawning from an exposed brain in the demon's forehead were what the team referred to as "Soul Cubes"- spectral containers housing the human souls of the damned, that upon impact with solid surfaces, erupt and transform into members of the demonic army. According to the marine's reports, demons often acted on their own accord, whether in cooperation with each other or not. Though in the presence of this monolithic devil, the demon horde acted in controlled unison.

    @kb1 My only plan for these was for them to be concept pieces, as I don't really have any experience with sprites or modeling. I love taking old games and redesigning charatcers and such. However, if anyone wants to ever take a crack at these, I'd be ecstatic! Someone on twitter has already took a shot at sculpting one of my Hellknights, and it looks pretty damn sweet! Anyway, finally got some time to finish up the missile-launching skyscraper with goat legs! Only the Doomguy and the Icon are left and the project is officially wrapped up. UAC Demonic Entity Log: 013- Cyberdemon Early on after Phobos was invaded, a single very large live specimen of a demon was found and miraculously subdued by the research team. Taking a crew of hundreds to transport the monster, it was eventually held in containment at a specially constructed facility on Phobos, far from the main research base. The demon (estimated to be upwards of 25 feet tall or more) was experimented on and endlessly researched in its cell, and a suppression serum was injected into its bloodstream hourly to keep it from waking. However, as the research continued, the demon's strange bodily properties began to reveal themselves. Almost acting like an uncontrollable amoeba, various bits of machinery scattered around the cell were absorbed into the giant's body, as if being called to. This continued until it began absorbing parts of the room construction itself. Just before an evacuation was about to be enacted, the research crew and few military personnel there were also sucked into the demon's body, including any weapons and instruments on their person. Among the weapons to be absorbed by the demon was a missile launcher that was once attached to the back of an Armored Personnel Carrier. Note 013-01: Research revealed that the Cyberdemon, prior to fusing itself with UAC technology, was the last (or one of the last) of an ancient race of Demons, bred to be the most formidable of warriors in Hell's Army. It supposedly does not take orders or act on the behalf of any other demon, though it was heard muttering the name Baphomet while (nearly) unconscious in the lab. UAC Log Archive 00E2-M8: The Tower of Babel As described in Biblical text, out of mankind's arrogance, the Tower of Babel was a structure built to reach the Heavens from Earth. Humankind would populate the heavens and make it their domain to rule over if all went according to plan. Hell appears to have their own such tower, built up to reach the Earth's surface. Based on descriptions from the lone marine, this tower was used to transport Hell's armies to the Earth and also contains the source power for the hell gates on Mars' moons… with that power later revealed to be a living entity.

    Thanks everyone! The Cannibal Corpse comparison is apt, I was looking at a lot of Metal album art (particularly the work of Pushead) for inspiration on these! As far as the Baron's legs go, I wanted their cloaks to appear as though legs couldn't fit under it, almost acting like a space that isn't constricted by earthly rules, so to speak. So, they could very well still float when they move, I just imagined them using their legs when they need to gain some speed. @Jaxoon Didn't drop the design, just tweaked it is all. Cyberdemon and Icon of Sin are up next, then wrapping up with the Doomguy! UAC Demonic Entity Log: 012- Spider Mastermind UAC feared the worst when Hell took over UAC Earth Central Command's installation, it being home to some of the most advanced technology humanity has ever built. Though enforced with an exceptional amount of security, a singular prototype nuclear-powered Arachno-Tank was taken by the demonic forces, to be used for their own will. Placed near one of the Hell Gates on Earth, an entity parasitically attached itself to the gargantuan machine, finding itself a new body. Despite the machine's large frame, its movements are incredibly nimble, and the head is protected in the back by what look like Pipe organs. These organs were reported by the Lone Marine to have been able to beckon other demonic forces to its location. According to some members of the research team, the demonic entity that attached itself to the tank was likely to be Lilith or even Hel, the Queen of the damned of Norse mythology. Though these explanations were seen to be nothing more than conjecture, it was given some credence, considering the other demons bowed to the Spider's every whim, easily controlled by its mere presence. This led the team to dub it the Mastermind of Hell's army, responsible for leading the invasions on Mars' moons and Earth. However large and formidable this monster was, the Marine made mention of another titanic machine-fused beast, said to be even more volatile and aggressive.

    Thanks guys! I'm not very experienced in spritemaking or modeling, but a WAD would be sweet! Finished up the Arch-Vile! Only the two bosses, the Icon of Sin and the Doomguy remain at this point. UAC Demonic Entity Log: 011- Arch-Vile Seen as outcasts in Hell's circles, the Arch-Vile is perhaps the most vicious and foul creature at their disposal. At an average height of 11 feet tall, these lanky, feminine monsters have an ability unlike any other. When a nearby demon is found to be deceased, the Arch-Vile's stomach begins to grow a transparent membraneous sac around its exposed spinal cord. Developing inside this bubble is the fetus of a reincarnated dead demon, rapidly growing until the sac bursts, thereby exposing the spinal cord until the process begins again. The reincarnated demon falls to the ground, covered in birthing fluids, continuing to grow until it reaches physical maturity in a matter of minutes. Beyond this, the Arch-Viles are able to summon fire anywhere they choose. The research team has yet to procure a specimen due to their ferocity, but have been able to garner enough footage and photographic material for further study. Note 011-01: Though hated and feared even among Hell's own, the Arch-Vile is nevertheless seen as a matriarchal figure; it is met with distaste along with sense of perceived reverence and admiration. Though demons have been seen killing and cannibalising each other (with and without provocation), Arch-Viles seem to be immune to this phenomena, as if no other demon dares to instigate a fight with one.

    UAC Demonic Entity Log: 010- Baron of Hell The UAC learned something strange in their continued research, and found that Hell has a hierarchy of sorts, akin to details remembered in biblical and occult texts. Among the highest ranked of the demons are Barons. Rarely seen, Barons resemble priests or bishops, cloaked with a blanket of skin, hiding a pair of misshapen goat-like legs. The Barons seem to act as both the religious officials and commanders of Hell's armies, conducting sacrifices of both human and demon victims alike, usually relegating the fighting to the other "lesser" species. However, they intervene when they feel they must. Fighting almost with a sense of dignified grace, Barons eclipse much of the other demons in not only height and size, but strength as well. Similar to the Imps and Hell Knights, the Barons can summon fire through stigmata found in the palms of their hands, and some are capable of teleportation. The Lone Marine revealed that he had killed a duo of these Barons near the site of the Phobos Anomaly, barely escaping with his life.

    Good ol' Lardass is up! UAC Demonic Entity Log: 009- Mancubus Found to originate from some of the lowest depths of Hell, a species of morbidly obese demons were discovered roaming around Earth, the planet's appearance and architecture now altered and perverted from the influence of Hell's presence. Collectively called the Mancubi, these shambling, putrid giants' bodies also became infused with UAC technology upon entering the Hell Gate. This fusion often left large tankards of fuel grafted onto their shapeless backs, with said fuel pumping into the monsters' bloodstreams. Flamethrowers replaced where there were once presumably a pair of hands. Propelling out of their wrist stumps, a foul-smelling mixture of gasoline, blood and bile-like liquids, ignited by the flamethrower makes them able to form a deadly stream of fire. At an average weight of 3 tons, consequently rather slow and large targets, Mancubi are incredibly resilient, and take a considerable amount of ammunition to dispose of. Note 009-01: Fueling the idea of the Seven Deadly Sins, the Mancubi are very clumsy and gluttonous, stopping at nothing to eat anything that they can get ahold of, including their own brethren, dead or alive.

    Thanks Piper! Oh, on a related note, I posted a few of these to Twitter, and they got liked by Romero and Id Software's profiles, so that was pretty awesome! Revenant is up! UAC Demonic Entity Log: 008- Revenant Another instance of demonic forces being combined with UAC technology were what the research team called Revenants. Revenants were found to be a race of giant men, whose animated corpses were responsible for a lot of construction work in Hell itself, their size and strength exploited for slave-labor. A lot of this involved heavy lifting of raw materials, resulting in their arms being outstretched. Aside from this, their muscle and skin tissue (and even the presence of internal organs) seem to be slowly, but constantly regenerating, as if Hell kept them in a state of temporary decomposition. Once through the Hell-Gate, a shroud of metal enveloped much of their shoulders and torsos, mounted with miniature rocket or fragmentation grenade launchers, some with homing capabilities. Though this high amount of firepower alone makes Revenants a force to be reckoned with, their long arms and sturdy hands have turned them into excellent fist-fighters, just as devastating in close-combat. Note 008-01: Though many human lives have been lost to the Revenants, they have been spotted attacking their own allies, perhaps in defiant retaliation to their masters.

    Thanks guys! Next entry is up! UAC Demonic Entity Log: 007- Pain Elemental One of the most solitary and rare demon species to be seen on Earth have been dubbed the Pain Elementals. Resembling large floating tumors, Pain Elementals are pretty docile and don't tend to attack unless provoked. However, the air around them reeks of disease and decay with their aim being to spread this air around the globe. Due to this, they are deemed responsible for the sickness that wiped out much of the Earth's population following the demonic invasion. With the fleshy masses' stomachs acting like furnaces, this gives them the ability to drift in the air like that of the Cacodemons, though inside a Pain Elemental's body is something equally as disturbing as its outward appearance. Note 007A: An interesting anecdote; Researchers have speculated that Pain Elementals have been represented in artwork before, appearing as what art historians call "Hell Mouths". Note 007B: The Pain Elementals sometimes appear to have vestigial arms or other limbs attached to their bodies, seemingly useless. UAC Demonic Entity Log: 007.2- Lost Soul Brewing inside Pain Elementals' stomachs are the Lost Souls, spirits resembling infants that have perished in childbirth, due to physical deformation. When provoked, Pain Elementals will spew out a grouping of Lost Souls to retaliate against an attacker, their malformed heads covered in a billowy flame. Lost Souls travel exceptionally quick, and attack in swarms. Finding a corpse of a Lost Soul proved to be impossible, as they explode upon extermination, completely evicerating any remnants. Any evidence of these manifestations is based on descriptions and renderings by the research team, as they fail to appear in photographs and film. Note 007.2A: To go along with the notion that the demonic army is craftier than originally anticipated, many of their physical appearances seem to fuel the idea of "Spiritual Warfare". If these spirits are indeed the souls of infants, they're doing a good job of making their Enemy look less merciful, planting seeds of doubt in believers of the faith. With no physical specimens preserved, it could be argued that the Lost Souls are artificially designed and birthed for this very purpose.

    Arachnotron is complete! UAC Demonic Entity Log: 006- Arachnotron An unexpected result of the invasion was the fusion of demonic anatomy and UAC technology, presumably due to the portal being so near a base rife with scientific and military grade hardware. UAC Riot-Issue nuclear-powered arachno-sentries were seen being suddenly melded with bizarre infantile faces with their oversized pulsating brains exposed. Deceptively intelligent, Arachnotrons often group together in swarms, their mechanical bodies able to climb nearly any surface. Equipped with Plasma cannons, these bizarre marriages of flesh and metal are very deadly, and finding a specimen to take back to Mars Central proved to be a momentous task. It is unknown what demonic species latched onto the sentries or whether they are a manifestation of the Hell-Gate's tremendous energy. Using the same kind of sentry mechanics, a single prototype arachno-tank was engineered for war-time use, tremendous in size and lethality. Thankfully, it seems as though the Demons haven't gotten a hold of it yet.

    Hell Knight is up! UAC Log Archives D2-M13: Hell on Earth Deimos was literally nowhere to be seen after the numerous attempts at contact yielded no results, as if it had never existed in the first place. UAC's attempts to locate the lost moon proved to be an exercise in futility, and baffled the research crew endlessly. A Lone Marine was said to have wiped out the demon population on Phobos single-handedly, and ventured into the Hell-Gate to find what had become of Deimos, eventually finding that the moon was suspended over Hell itself. Making contact with resistance forces on Earth, the Marine was told of a subsequent invasion, that the Earth itself had been overrun with Hell's legions of demons. Earth had never looked so different, desolate and destroyed, littered with artifacts and evidence of Demonic influence and transformation. Shortly after the Lone Marine's arrival on Earth, the resistance had left the planet in hopes of rebuilding mankind on another off-world colony. Earth would no go down without a fight however. UAC Demonic Entity Log: 005- Hell Knight Though former humans, Imps and Pinkies have been found to be relatively easy to dispatch with enough firepower, many demons proved to be a lot more durable and powerful. After Earth's invasion, a new breed of demons made themselves known. Called Hell Knights by Earth's resistance, these demons are particularly hefty and brutish. At around 10 feet tall, these formidable warriors use their goat-like legs for fast travel, despite their immense size. Akin to the imps, the Hell Knights have the ability to conjure fire, though this comes from a strange membrane embedded in their torsos; their flame has a bizarre scent to it, glows an otherworldly green and burns for much longer than "normal" fire. In close combat, Hell Knights fight with berserker strength and are unusually agile. Unlike other demon specimens found on Phobos and on Earth, the Hell Knights were found to have a lack of genitalia, as if bred for one purpose and one purpose only; to fight and destroy.

    Finished up the Cacodemon today! UAC Demonic Entity Log: 004- Cacodemons Though many of the demonic specimens that were collected were easy to spot, being grounded, large airborne creatures began to spring up on the Phobos base and were much more difficult to procure. The first of these seen were what the research team called the Cacodemons, a name derived from the greek kakodaímōn meaning "Evil Spirit". Cacodemons' anatomy acts like that of a hot air balloon, with an internal source of heat that makes the oxygen inside of the creature less dense than that outside of it. Because of their hollow bodies, Cacodemons are very light-weight and aerodynamic, though their skin is unusually resilient and thick. Adorned with a crown of thorn-like spikes and possessing a singular eye, Cacodemons tend to be seen in more open areas like that of foundries and outside of the base itself, slowly floating at their leisure. The Cacodemon's blue-colored insides reveal a uvula that can generate an intense amount of electricity, able to spew projectiles of suspended plasma at an opponent.

    Thanks a ton guys! I'm rather tired of the whole zombie genre myself, so I wanted to make these guys a bit different than the standard fare. Was fun making them distinct from one another while still keeping a similar visual language! Also, here's the finished Imp and Pinky! UAC Demonic Entity Log: 002- Imp As the UAC continued their research on the anomaly, signs of life became noticeable. Initially thought to be extraterrestrial in origin, it became clear that the gateway had completely unexplainable tendencies and was controversially labeled as a supernatural aberration. Newly christened as the Gates of Hell, the portal's power allowed other monstrosities to appear on Phobos. Perhaps the most often sighted of these beasts were the imps. Believed to be Hell's disposable foot-soldiers, Imps are roughly man-sized, highly athletic and quick-footed, covered in tough, calcified skin of varying colors and shades. Protruding from their bodies are strange, root-like structures, covered in thorny growths. The collection of a dead Imp specimen revealed that embedded in their hands were what appeared to be stigmata, from which an intense amount of heat could be generated. The root-like parts of the demon's bodies were found to store a sort of flammable liquid, which when directed to their palms, would be met with the conjuring of fire. Though generally considered among the weakest of Hell's forces, Imps are more intelligent than how they appear, often using vents and tight-spaces as a means of fast and undetected travel. UAC Demonic Entity Log: 003- Pinky Periodically sending research teams to the Phobos base for the purpose of collecting samples and specimens, the UAC's involvement in the demonic invasion bordered on obsessive. Any discovered demonic species was a gold-mine of scientific material to glean from, and one could surmise that those at the Mars research facility enjoyed their new project. Among the first non-humanoid creatures to be discovered on the base have been lovingly referred to as Pinkies, due to their salmon-colored skin. Tougher and larger than the imps, and possessing a pair of intimidating horns, the Pinkies are very aggressive and territorial. With characteristics not unlike that of a bull, Pinkies are known to often rush an attacker, using their hoofed back legs and exceptionally strong forearms to build up speed. Though not very bright, this strength coupled with their large hands makes one of these demons a deadly foe. UAC Log Archive 00E1-M6: Spectre Incident A large pack of Pinkies were found to have gotten into a sealed laboratory on the base, stumbling into an experimental compact teleporter, slated to be for commercial use upon its completion. As the teleporter had yet to be tested, the Pinkies' molecular structure became scrambled, and were somehow turned transparent as a result.

    Finished up the Former Human trio! It's also at my Deviantart page: deimos-remus.deviantart.com To give an idea on what the writeups will entail, here's theirs: UAC Log Archive 00E1-M8: Phobos Anomaly After the first field tests of teleportation between Mars' two moons proved to be successful, an extra-dimensional tear occurred, forming a gateway on the surface of Phobos. Though the gateway seemed to show no signs of activity at first, strange occurrences began to arise on the Phobos base after its appearance. On-site personnel started to show signs of strange sicknesses and an uptick in violent behavior within hours of its arrival. A request to UAC Mars Central Command for increased security and Military assistance was granted. With the gateway being categorized as an anomaly, it was unknown where its source point was located. UAC Mars Central Command quickly reacted to the situation, focusing their research solely on the origins of the gateway and its unexplainable properties. Communication with Deimos was met with difficulty, eventually culminating in complete radio silence mere days after the gateway was formed. Within a week, all personnel on Phobos were stricken with death or had undergone bizarre physical mutation. The security officers and marines sent to Phobos were not heard from again. UAC Demonic Entity Log: 001-Former Humans (UAC) UAC research personnel were the first to perish from the gateway's radiation, followed quickly by the marines sent to aid them. Radiation made much of the crew lose their hair, though oddly, others hair changed color. The unnatural properties of the radiation led the bodies of the dead to rise again, acting as a hive-mind seemingly fueled by bloodlust. Any survivors were reportedly killed by those deemed to be undead. Commonly, noses were seen to be clawed off or completely decayed, with some security personnel showing signs of advanced decomposition, though unnaturally able to move and fight. Though the bodies continued to decay and brain activity appeared low, these abominations seemed to hold a collective memory of past life, able to use weaponry and equipment just as before. Though the request of Military reinforcement was initially appreciated, a large portion of security personnel were oft-equipped with weapons of unnecessarily lethal capabilities, a number of them seen with heavy firearms such as UAC-issue rotary-cannons and double-barreled shotguns. These weapons, in the hands of the undead, made the eradication of the Phobos base a quick feat. Concerns worsened when new completely inhuman lifeforms began to infiltrate the base.

    Ha, I'm going to do some short write-ups on these guys. I have it that the radiation that's belched out of the Hell Portals on Phobos and Deimos make its occupants react in different ways. Some lose their hair due to the radiation, ala Chemo Therapy, whereas others hairs changed to odd colors.

Also, updated the designs and poses for the lost souls and imps respectively. The previous pose I had for the IMp was something I liked in concept, but it was proving to be awkward fitting it into a composition I liked. Came up with this more fight-ready one instead.

    Oh yeah, for sure. Thanks a ton! I just think that as a fan of the originals, I owe it to them to not just do the same thing that's been done already, give it a bit of a different flavor than what's usually associated with the series. Makes it more fun on my end too! :)
