Quote from Emperor Doom
Exactly. The noses will be transparent on the Doombots.
Also, I'm still trying to come up with some good sketches, but right now I'm thinking I want to make the Villagers in H.P. Lovecraftian fish-man-mutants. Innsmouth stuff, but keep them semi-pitiful looking, so you don't want to just slaughter them all on contact.
I can make a basic mutated body, one fish face and one squid face, a few different sets of tattered clothes (making heavy use of the second body layer and transparency), and it should be good.
Just have to draw a look that works first.
If you are going this route of making a variety of villagers, I think it would be cool to make a variety of zombies to match the villagers. So like alive villager and zombified villager. Namely since the last few texturepack loaders come with alt texture support. would be interesting to see zombies in more than just business suits ;D
