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

Love it. I'm glad you gave him that hateful expression and those bone/piercing things in his cheeks and jaws. Most people don't notice that this www.tabun.nl/img/2d/tex_doom_d… is the Archvile, alot of people think it's the Mancubus.

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.

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.

Please let Id hire you for Doom 4 so that the monsters can look like this. I would shit my pants if I saw the Arch-Vile like this in a video game.

Huh, I always imagined its mouth being blocked by stretched scar tissue. Never realized that tile was showing one of them and not a Mancubus.

Yah The sprite model for the arch vile loses a lot of detail in the face. In game it almost looks like he has the same mouth as Galcius from Killer Instinct. The wall tile was definitely more helpful, and as far as I know, it is the Arch Vile. I used to make wads for the game, and I'd like to say with confidence that the texture for that wall was named accordingly, but I'd be lying if I said I knew that for a fact. Either way, I went from the models as much as I could, and just took them in the direction that felt right to me. :)

I'd love to see some of your old WADS sometime. You ever try Doom Builder? There's a new version out that's really easy to use.

I'd share them if I still had them, but they were all on an old computer I had a long time ago. I never tried Doom Builder, but I might get doom back up on my computer one day to do just that. I used to use wadauthor.

Some of the Doom music was all over the place, but that made it kind of fun. Playing it recently, I could swear one level had the same Caribbean vibes type of song that was used for the Costa de Sol town in Final Fantasy VII.
