AOD doom sprites

Linguica kindly donated some sprites from the AOD TC for us to use. The sprites are two walking skeletons. I havent linked them in yet because I'm not sure which enemies they should replace. Any suggestions?

You can find the sprites and a wad with them in here

I don't think the sword skeleton fits to replace any other enemy than the demon.

it could be an arch-vile if the slash attack had added magic or flames or something.

They could replace the Baron/Hell Knights maybe, if you did a little editing. You could still use the slash frames for the Baron/Hell Knight melee attack graphics too.

I think the big one would work pretty well as the revenant and the little one would be fine as the demon until someone finds something better.

They both look better than the current imp...

I'll grant you that one.
In fact Linguica's icon looks better than the current imp... Heh... could you picture that?

Hey I like the current imp. Arioch tells me I'm pretty much alone on this though. Ah well.

just saw one of the AOD sprites was taken in as a
demon replacement, does that mean that SoK has
given up on finishing his? shame, i was rather
looking forward to it, considering the quality of
his earlier work.

otherwise, i think bigbadgangsta's idea to be the
best - let the skeletons replace the baron & hell
knight. these two should be similar anyway as
they kind of are in the original wad, which some
wadmakers will have considered in their maps.
also, i'd like for them to be not exactly similar
with only colours to tell them apart, which again
makes the skeletons perfect.

the fact that they're, well, skeletons, doesn't
bother me one bit - isn't it in final doom where
it says that "earth is under attack by aliens,
mutants and evil spirits"? i always found that
sentence to be a brilliant work of art. tell me,
in which other game/movie/whatever have you seen
those three active at the same time? =) skeletons
are evil, thus fit perfectly while further adding
to doom's inyourface lack of a too serious story.

btw, does the AOD TC have a homepage?

Not that I know of - this isnt final. We can always move the skeletons to replace a different monster, as the sprites are pretty flexible and could fit in lots of places. I forgot he was working on a demon as well actually - I just dropped the skeleton in where it seemed sensible :)

Hey where did all that blood come from in the death sequence?

anywya.. Sok should spend more time touching up the colors and borders of his sprites.

I like the imp more than the caco.

Yes, he's been back for a few days now.

You could always use Dehacked to simply add two new monsters instead of replacing them. Just change a few sprite frames you could do without.

That would break compatibility with existing levels/mods.
