Let's do Doom pt 4: Arachnotron by Mechanubis Let's do Doom pt 4: Arachnotron by Mechanubis
My version of the dreaded arachnotron. I drew a great amount of inspiration from the original piece of concept art intended for Doom 3, mainly the mouth-cannon.

This looks good, but you know what I like about your Mastermind is he actually has eight limbs. Six legs plus his arms. I know here you stuck closer to the original Doom designs. This is a nice sleek version too. I guess it always bothered me a bitt- that they called these guys Arachnotron and "Spider" Mastermind when none of them actually looked much like a spider.

True. I guess it came down to limitations in the tech. Also game design plays a big part in it. Having 8 legs can be a bit of a pain to animate and can get clustered when you have multiple foes on screen at once. The "zebra effect", where you start loosing track of how many foes there are on screen due to excess repeated patterns.

It would have been cool if they had just called them "brainticks".

I was thinking something like that myself. Or "mite" something. Demomite... bah sounds like Dynomite, Lol.

I think you just came up with a kickass name for a 80's Thrash Metal band: Demomite. Unfortunately they only do like 4 gigs at neighbouring countys' rock pubs and record bass and drum trakcs for their first album, before they split up due to excess drug abuse and debating wether or not the "seven churches" by Possessed was the first real Death Metal album ever recorded.

Then again, I might be reading too much into this...
