wait, which one's the chest again?

oh you mean this one?
That one was to represent Steal (I did that one for the Open elements); I went for a literal stealing (lockpicking a valuable treasure without being seen  :darkness :darkness :darkness )
Ofc. since there is already a decent illustration for Steal here, it can be used for something else  :) I hope!

ah i see

Maybe give the chest some blackish accents? I've noticed that a couple of the original Elements cards usually had color schemes that fit with the color of their element but idk if o-etg wants to continue that trend or not

Steal looks fine, this is what it looks like in game btw:

Spoiler for Hidden:

Actually my favorite so far. If any of the art that's now in oetg needs touch up it'd be ferrogolem, which can blend a bit too much into the background at half size when rendering instances

serprex! so good to see you here, on the other side of the sea.
yes, I agree about ferrogolem; It looked quite nice on 1024x but not really on 128x. I will resize and reframe to try to fix that.
thank you for your feedback   ;D

It has been a busy couple of weeks, but here I am.
As promised, I made a Puff fish and a sundial.
The puff fish took me a few trials, (like this one: )
but I finally manage to make an actual puff fish that has a vibe like "C'mon motherducker, EAT me, I double dare you!"

here it is:

Spoiler for Hidden:

Whoa, whoa, whoa... That's good! It kinda represents the original artwork for them. The recent artwork in the game doesn't even look like a "toad" or "puff"y. Nice art you got there! I think I would like if the red one is the unupgraded one (Toad Fish) and then upgraded to the more badass puffer version (Puffer Fish).
My idealized elements cycle:
Water -> Fire -> Air -> Earth -> Lightning -> Metal -> Light -> Darkness -> Wood -> Water

yaay Im really glad you like it  :silly: ! Yeah, the current one looks very impresive; Althou as you say, it is no toad nor puff; I think it is better work than mine (in most aspects; not all) but would fit best as a different fish card.
I would do a Toadfish  :water if it would be used, but guess that's not happening for now. OR I would do a Toadfish if there was a request for it.

Next I think I will do Mida's touch, Innovation, Hammer... (and fix ferrogolem)
Unless I recieve some specific request.

Hey folks, good to be back here;
Here are my latest works:

update to ferro golem:

Spoiler for Hidden:

midas touch:

Spoiler for Hidden:

titan:

Spoiler for Hidden:

also, another thing: It seems when I resize the image I do not do it correctly (I think it may be the filter I select [bilinear, etc]) since when I compare side to side the big image scaled down with the same size as the 128px on full size, the 128px-native image looks a lot worse (everything gets blurry). Does anybody have any idea why is that? I'm pretty sure it is the filtering when resizing, but I can't find the right option.

Well I hope you are all swell   :)

Aboslutely friend. I will have a go at one of them, sooner or later.
You knwo what, since it's your fav, I think if you tell me something you like about it I can try to expand on that in some way (no promises!)  ;D
Feel free to be as vague as you want.

Sure!

I think what appeals to me most, is its able to both capture the creepy-ness and mystique of an actual ghost, while still fitting in to the theme of the art already in the game. The Ghost of the Past is actually scary, but not in the traditional sense. Its scary in a mystical kind of way.

(Also, i really like the Mortal Kombat Scorpion spear he has around him)
