Let's do Doom Pt1: Revenant by Mechanubis Let's do Doom Pt1: Revenant by Mechanubis
With the release of Doom 3 BFG-edition, and the alledged Doom 4 leaked screenshots earlier this year I've been struck with a bit of a Doom-mania. If there's a game I'd love to get aboard to redesign some old creatures, it would be Doom.

I loved most of the creature-redesigns in Doom 3, but Revenant along with Mancubus and Archvile weren't one of those. So I thought I'd go ahead and do some fanart of Doom's enemy roster. I'm also planning to models these badboys into fully functional current gen ingame-models once I get back home from my trip to the north. These speedpaints will be just mental notes instead of actual concept-art. I like to design and detail mechanical stuff like the rocket launchers in 3D.

This should be fun :3

Really cool, love the disproportionate hands and only the partial skull with some innards/wires hanging out.

Doom 3 monsters are cool, but the game gets repetitive. Anyway cool redesign.

YOu see the Revenant really intrigued me, when I first encountered it I was like whoa demons have their form of  technology?

True. I find the aspect of Hell absorbing technology and culture into it self as time progresses very fascinating.

At least the Mancubus TRIED to stay faithful to the classic design.

The only thing I really hated about Doom 3 was the lack of either Pain Elementals, Arachnotrons, or Hell Barons. & you speak like the fact the Mancubus's Doom 3 depiction is basically a 3-D graphics interpretation of its Classic Depiction is a bad thing.

The original designs don't actually translate all that well into semi realistic looking horror game. They are perfectly fine in their 2.5D enviroment, but bringing them to a dark, modern game demands some heavy handed reinterpretation.

I honestly thought it translated perfectly fine. I actually saw someone do an add-on that (in addition to putting in Doom 3 interpretations of Baphomet, Pain Elementals, & Hell Barons) modified some stuff in the weapons to function like their classic counterparts. For more information, check out Perfected Doom 3.

Kinda wish they'd have shown up in Doom 3, but then again maybe all the dark, tight corridors would have made them seem overpowered- to which I scream, "then take the stupid fight OUTSIDE!", but that aside, this is a pretty cool re-imagining of a classic foe.

Nope. It was in the original. But I don't blame you for not remembering them. They played a very small part in the game.

the original revenant scared the hell out of me when i was a kid
the way it screamed and the unnerving way he moved always made me jump when they suddenly appeared at close range.

I know. And they were dangerous, espcially in larger groups in open areas. They moved really fast and packed quite a punch, and getting chased around by 14,325,235 homing missiles claimed my life more than once.

Thanks for the comment :) Cheers

Oh christ, the Commandos! They are especially dangerous in Brutal Doom. I think no other monster has splattered me all over the walls as much as the commandos. I really didn't care for them in Doom 3. Very cheap attacks, like the tentacleslap which is really difficult to dodge in tight corridors.
