I wonder how long it takes to "dot" these pixel avatars.

Took me around 1 month, several hours daily :)

My objective was to make them look like, I think, early Final Fantasy sprites.

Those are very nice ones Philipp!

PS: It remids me those sleepless nights spent in front of my TV with a one-button jojstick and a big black non-name TV-GAMES box :-)

Thanks a lot for releasing them! I'm sure they'll be useful for projects.

Grammar ;) :
'The game (“Last Guardian”) didn’t win, and I didn’t use the sprites since then'
should be
'The game (“Last Guardian”) didn’t win, and I haven't used the sprites since then'

Really nice Philipp! Thanks for sharing this! Also, I think you sould include an readme file expliciting what CC license you released the sprites.

Tiago, actually I did... admittedly, it'll be the last file if you sort by name.

Those sprites make me dream of my old C64. Those were the peek- & pokedays when it was fantastic if we could make appear those sprites above the outerborders of the screen.

All you youngster in this forum have missed that fantastic feeling ;-)

Prince of Persia had one of the best character animations of its time...

Does anyone else read RetroGamer?

i would like to thank you for publishing these drawings as free for a non-commersial use!
im doing a very simple risk-like strategy game (for personal education purpose o.c) and these sprites are perfect!

Wonderful stuff! I'm suprised these didn't win really, i love attempting to make little games using free game creation software and these sprites were exactly what i was looking for :)
