Hehe, thanks a ton! I'm glad you like it. :)

Your stuff is really awesome by the way!

Agh..I'm salivating! This piece is perfection. Love the colours and illustrative qualities of the portraits.

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 6/30/2014 09:03

I did not aim for that but now that you have mentioned it.

Hrhr, cheers!

Looks like sort of thing I might find in an early 90's Amiga game.  Which means I like it. :)

that tool used to change the colors of all the sprites at once?

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 6/27/2014 16:24


Sure, I do all my digital art in Photoshop; version CS5 to be exact.

zeuselite (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/27/2014 15:06

COOL!, Mandril could you tell me what program you used to change the color of my sprites?


Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 6/27/2014 14:14

Cheers, kid! :)

Pixelart_kid (Level 6 SWAT) @ 6/27/2014 14:10

wow wonderful icons!!!

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 6/27/2014 07:05

Thank you! Always great to hear that from other 40k fans. ;)

Theoden (Level 10 Operative) @ 6/27/2014 06:35

This rocks! Instant vote from a 40k fan :)

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 6/27/2014 02:44

@ FrostPumpkin

Haha, awesome. Thank you very much for that!

Always looking up to your work :)

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 6/27/2014 02:41


Cheers, chap! Glad you like it.

I totally agree with you. The portraits are far more intersting than the other icons.

I didn't do more of them though because I felt like they would not transport the feel of a MMO that well. Furthermore it is quite hard to make a readable icon in that size (50px x 50px).

What I originally planned was to pixel 3 portraits and 3 characters using race specific weapons or items. It didn't took long before I realized that is was almost impossible to put enough information into the 46x46 square to make everything distinguishable enough.

The most economical (and laziest) way for me was to do just symbols and items. :P

FrostPumpkin (Level 6 Aquamarine) @ 6/27/2014 02:36

Ouh damn, this is awesome ! Great use of wolors and you made Slaanesh. This has my vote :)

@ Meapers


There is a F2P MMO in development at the moment but it doesn't look that appealing to be honest... :(

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 6/27/2014 02:17

@ elias

Thanks! :)

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 6/27/2014 02:17

@ Ziska

Thank you.

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 6/27/2014 02:16

Thank you very much, felch.

Normally I'd agree with you on the purple part but for a Slaanesh thing it's not purple enough.

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 6/26/2014 17:31

Very cool. I love how you make nice use of colours in your metal. And boy, you need to keep making icon-sized portraits! :D

My one complaint about this piece is that the Necron symbol, Slaanesh symbol and the stikkbomb are relatively simple and uninteresting compared to the other icons, which are fantastic. If this had just been 6 portraits of the same quality as the first 3, it would have been really magnificent.

PS: Yay for moar Waaagh! :)

Meapers (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 6/26/2014 16:55

Sweet, would be interesting to see a Warhammer 40K MMO 

Zizka (Level 10 Deep Blue) @ 6/26/2014 16:43

Very interesting take on the theme. 

elias11brigaderao (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/26/2014 16:40

this is very surprising, really enjoyed the idea

felchqueen (Level 6 SWAT) @ 6/26/2014 15:24

I know very little about Warhammer (I've seen the figures in games workshop) so I can't comment on their accuracy but I really like the portraits, but as always lovely colouring. The topmost icon is incredibly vivid, I'd swear it glows in the dark! Against the other icons the purple one is a bit one-note a bit too......purple?
