Very nice icons. My favorites are the Type VI Demon (Balor) and the Ultrodaemon (Ultroloth). They are very faithful to the original images and look like they could have come straight out of the Monster Manuals I & II, which is a good thing.

I guess that I like those the best, too!  ;)  The VI's attack pose was quite interesting to do.  Many thanks to Manikus again for his work on the monster databases!

It seems like a fair trade to me - you and Dinonykos do the icons and I do the stats. :D

I was thinking about sprites as I like to have them.

Maybe there should be few generic sprites that could be used for any encounter.

Something like a cloaked man (and maybe 2 more for different sizes like dwarf or giant) and one more for typical monster (creature). There should not be any face seen and it should be usable for any encounter, with any portrait or icon.

Can this be done by Uatu as I mostly use his portraits and icons if not I will have to try to make it?

I don't get over to the DC side of things very often, especially not online to view graphics posts: these are awesome icons Uatu!  having a blast looking over things on your home site as well

Here are some underwater icons and matching portraits (tritons).  I am pleased with how they look, and the icons have more action in them than usual...

As for the random encounter thing - well, not a sprite, but I did try to make a quick "default random encounter" small picture.  Man?  Dwarf?  Creature?  Maybe!

Glad you guys like them!

I don't even know what I have uploaded anymore, so I just made a big update to my site.  Most (all?) of what I did in the past year should be up there now, including new walls, spell effects, and other stuff, too.

Wow! Very nice new art, Uatu.
Concerning the new portraits and icons, they are great as they always are.

I am impressed by your new walls in particular (since you meant earlier that you find them difficult to do)! Excellent work!

I would say that, if one does not insist to have big pics, it is very well possible to do nice designs with the art from your homepage without needing additional sources.

Thanks for the kind words!  Many of the walls were essentially experiments - if they turned out okay, then I kept them!  The walls are of course aided by Daniel Morton's wonderful wall generator tool - it is just too much effort for me otherwise!  Plus, it is great in that I can quickly see the results of my experiments.

Big pics are one thing that I have barely touched so far - but one can sometimes "fake" it by using a lot of black, and by reusing some art :D

Here is one big pic that one can use when first entering the lower planes.

Also, I have been working on a colorful background map for my (seemingly never finished) module, which so far looks like this.

all of the new art is fantastic, Uatu! I like all of the new walls and backdrops, and especially like the Dwaarf King smallpic. :)

Not sure if you know, but the link to big pics throws up a 404 error.

Ah yes - I did kind of know that, but I will have to add a page when I actually have some bigpics to show!

Also thanks for the kind words of many here.

Are there not some bigpics a couple of posts above? 8) I would recommend just pointing the bigpic link back to the main DC page for now.

I am interested in your take on what a Super Hero design wall should look like....not exactly asking you to make some unless you want to. But, I know you are a comics fan and an artist I think so far there is a different opinion for each of us who have commented on this topic. :D :D :D
