The Plasticine Cacodemon
Description
A replacement set of sprites for the Cacodemon. The novelty is that the sprites were produced starting from photos of a self-made static plasticine model of a cacodemon, just like id did. The model was based on the id original, but is different in its own way. Try to see ;-)

===========================================================================
Advanced engine needed  : Any limit-removing engine that doesn't require 
  IWAD sprite merging is recommended.
Primary purpose         : Sprite replacement. I guess that makes it 
  Single+Coop play.

Additional Credits to   : TimeOfDeath for saving me the time of making 
  the included test map (heh). To the Doomworld
  community for having provided positive input
  since the beginning of the project.

This is more of a "proof of concept" release,  to prove  that this is a viable sprite creation technique. More info can be found on:
http://www.doomworld.com/vb/wads-mods/48080-plasticine-sprites-wip-now-with-demo-wad/

These sprites are based on downscaling and color reduction of high-res originals (at 4x times the vanilla resolution). Upon request, the hi-res originals are available for editing and/or enhancing. Needless to say, using this in your own WADs is allowed 
and encouraged.
