Let's do Doom pt7: Imp

By
Like the Hellknight, I really like the design of the imp in Doom 3 a lot, so making this felt a little redundant. I gave this bad boy more Hellknight-esque mouth with the bare gums, so they seem like a distant relatives or something.

i genuinely love he looks and how he seems distant kin to a hell knight . Doom 3 was my first doom game so I really love when artists bring the horror back to doom

I like your design on the Imp definitely an improvement.

I really hope ID is using these designs. This imp looks bad-ass, a proper update to the classic design than the Doom 3 version.

Thank you very much. But Id Software has not contacted me about the designs, so I very much doubt we'll ever see these bad boys in action. Cheers o/

Damn that's a shame. Your designs are better updates than the monsters we got in Doom 3 lol

Aww. Thanks. But I'm confident in Id Software, judging by the 2 teasers we've gotten so far.

Yeah. I'm not sure how I feel about the new Doom. On one hand I am excited because "HOLY SHIT ITS A NEW DOOM GAME" that has the classic Doom gameplay and I am stoked for that. On the other hand I was really interested in seeing what their original vision of the game was all about. It's mainly because Doom 2 is my favorite of the classis, and Doom 4 was said to have been a remake of it in the same way that D3 was a remake of D1.

I'll play it anyway though.

I'm somewhat optimistic about the new Doom. Especially since they scrapped that super-generic looking direction that leaked out and apparently went for a more Brutal Doom-esque direction. Not long 'till E3.
The imps in DooM (4) look a lot like this one.

I thought they looked more like the smaller cousins of the hellknight. But I guess the bodytypes are somewhat similar. Thanks for the comment.

This design instantly got me to thinking about the Clone Soldiers from Serious Sam 3: BFE. A lot of classic baddies got interesting redesigns to make them look even more intimidating! (Though, admittedly, the Clone Soldiers were completely new to the game, though they functioned largely like the Zorgs from The Second Encounter and the Orcs from 2.)

SS3 BFE really did kick up the designs a notch. SS was a great game, but the enemy design was really all over the place. It was amazing how well they redesigned the one-eyed gorilla thing o.O

Ahh, the gnaars? Yes, I just love the overhaul they got in their design! seriousboom.ru/SeriousSam3/Mon…

Actually, now that I think about it, I'd love to see what would happen if you tackled a session of "Let's do Serious Sam"!
