Flipping sprites around

I was going through the FreeDOOM resources and thought wouldn't the current revenant sprites look way better if they were scaled down to replace the current imp? I honestly don't really like that impy thing, and the Revenant just seems way better for it. Also, I saw somewhere on this forum a while back, for replacement Archvile sprites, but I thought maybe they looked better as a Baron of Hell? Just a couple suggestions here and there.

That black revenant certainly needs to be shortened to the engine height. Watch it go in the cave with its head in the ceiling on Map09.

Lol, I've seen that. I looked at the FreeDOOM sources, and noticed, the "revenant" sprites also had Imp frame numbers. I go steadfastly that they would be a million time better as the Imp. Afterall I honestly hate the existing Imp, and since the imp is so common I believe it should be one of the better looking sprites, which the (oversized) revenant would be if scaled down.

The revenant sprite reminds me of a monster from the Anubis/Osiris TC. I wonder if it was derived from there (would make sense, since their TXT file gives permission to re-use everything except the music).

One of the other problems with the revenant is that it's very dark and hard to see in some situations, like a dark room or even just against an ASHWALL2 background (revninja!) Plus, it's missing some sound fx, so half the time you don't know there's one lurking around until you get a missile in the back.

Edit: well guess I remembered wrong, the TROO* frames from osiris.wad look different, and anyway those seem derived from id's imp.
