On second thought they are a bit too cutesey. But other than that it's good work

May I ask if it is really your work, or they are also "stolen"? They look sort of too good to be true... (if it's really yours then take it as compliment)

Hey,

I did not steal them, i worked on them on Adobe photoshop 7. I used the tools for the shading. and the basic template is very simple. The first commanders look like monnkeys, because I kinda was trying to draw a monkey for somehting else, but it turned into a commander.  :D

sorry, I just asked to be sure. Wow, they are really good. I alredy put first one into the game. Btw his hand movement is bit strange, this could be perhaps improved... try the game to see how it looks animated

And btw: new commanders used too many colors (only the first one has approx 200 color), I tried to reduce palette, but it did not look good. So I switched from 256colors palette to hi-color mode (16 bits for each pixel). It slightly increased the size of data file, but it's still ok. But now you can use any number of colors you need (I hope that the size of file will stay reasonable).

It's really great! Far better than I hoped for. Force armour is excellent :)  I'll put it in the game soon.

If you don't mind, is it possible to sligthly edit hands? (I mean for commanders without weapons).  When it's animated they look a bit strange (at least in my opinion).

While you are hard at work, I'll be here sitting, doing nothing except waiting for you to post the updates so I can add more criticism. ;)

Yep, they all look really excellent! I'm going to put them into the game right now.
(I'm not sure how will the guy with blaster look animated, the phrases are too different. We'll see)

Well I think that the new commanders look great. Yea, they do look a little like monkeys but its a change from the basic human.
