Free pixel art characters available for download

With my last post it seemed like there might be a little interest in giving some free pixel art characters for people to use so I got everything ready and packed up. The package includes the individual png sprite frames, the .gal (graphics gale) files, and the two full character sheets. It includes ten characters with the humans nearly complete and the undead needing some additional work.

(note: you can easily select the magenta portions in the palette and color them how you want, or do it dynamically in-game by checking for R==B&&G==0 and multiplying that value by the team colour, etc)

Feel free to use them for anything you want as they are under a "do whatever you want with them" license... so either internal pre-production / stand-in artwork or for commercial use. As I mentioned in the last post I'd much rather have somebody use them instead of rotting away on our company backup server after burning capital on their production.

For anyone that missed the last post here is a preview:




Anyone have a use for some pixel art?

During pre-production on our current title when we were defining art style and world design we built 10 characters before completely changing direction and art style. They are in various stages of completion (the human characters have all 3 directions with multiple animations such as different actions, hurt, death, etc.. while the undead characters are much less complete) but I'm wondering if anyone could get any use out of them either as placeholder art in (pre)production or even for commercial use if they wanted to. I'd much rather have some people using them (for free of course) than packed away on a backup drive somewhere considering they took time and money to build.

The magenta portions of the sprites are R=B && G=0 so that way you can easily team colour them (either check for R==B&&G==0 and multiply by the target color.. or change the G channel to represent saturation and only check R==B, or whatever suits your needs). As I mentioned they are animated but you could always use them as static sprites like game board pieces or something as well.

If people could get some use out of them I'll upload all the PNG frames as well as GAL files (for GraphicsGale animation editor) with a "do whatever you want with them" license.... so let me know! Otherwise they are doomed to live out their life on the Creoterra server backup drive forever!
