Arch Vile by Emortal982 Arch Vile by Emortal982
Doom's Arch Vile

His facial features were mainly borrowed from the wall tile in game featuring the Arch Vile.
I embellished a bit here and there to make him pop, but tried to keep him as simplistic as he was in the original games.
After all, the Arch Vile was essentially just a tall anorexic pyromaniac, and that worked out well enough. :P

Next to the Revenant in huge swarms, this bastard was the bane for unprepared Doomers everywhere.

It's interesting to see that little bit of cybernetic tech on his face... a very original idea. :)

I can just hear this bastard screaming at the sight of a marine. Though there is something interesting I found when looking at the original enemy sprite, the bone structure is actually more feminine than masculine, and it's not because of how thin the thing is.

Apparently, the death gurgle of Archie is actually a young girl screaming "Why?!", only distorted and with the pitch played about with.

Well that's new... I'm going to have to look into that, because I haven't heard of that before at all.

I think I read it on the DooM Wiki. But I have been wrong before.

Looked it up, you're right, though it's the death sound that had that.

...I thought that was what I said? *Checks* Yeah, I had. I probably should've just said "The noise they make when they die" rather than death gurgle. Sorry for any possible confusion.
