    Not too bad IMO, much better than the pack beetle art!

    I kind of preferred the original KR/SA art, although it seemed more crustacean than beetle.

    My beetle is called 'Nocturne' for night music. His name didn't fit when he wasn't black.

    Much better.

    Now if they'll just take care of my pet peeve and fix the way we look on horseback.

    This is a great improvement over the zombie-white bugs (as Morgana adeptly identified them), but the red lobster claws are still a little weird.

    Also, why are his character's legs longer than the horse's legs?

    If his character has such long legs, he should be able to run faster than the horse.

    It looks better but still not at all as good as the current 2D version. The blue looks spray painted on as if it was vandalism.

    Not too bad.

    Far removed from the black version but at least it doesn't appear to have holes in the sprite anymore. The extra detail is nice although I agree the rune markings look a little like graffiti. I still hate those Y-shaped rear legs, I felt those must have been done in 3D to save polygons (Kraken is similiar and I think it should be redone with proper cephalopod tentacles).

    *Shrug*

    I am ok with this one and consider it a good improvement over the previous one.

    The claws look like cooked blue crap claws.

    I wonder if the Dev team has been visiting Baltimore a little too much since moving to VA.

    I wonder if you get the system message *you smell Old Bay* when you approach the Rune Beatles now...
