Well, I've made a start anyways. Just some lineart for one character and some colour (mainly so I can remember what is supposed to be what).

This one's the warrior, obviously.
 
EDIT2:
Added a mage, but I'm not 100% sure on him. Thoughts/suggestions?

WOW! Must be reading something differently.

Well the green was meant to be a background.

So more like this then?


Sorry for making this more complicated than it is.

You can't have a background.....

Btw, is it OK to make the barbarian a female, for example?

No no no... not like that. The background needs to be transparent. As in completely see through. As in you need to be able to see the colours of the website behind it.

Pshh, she's actually a guy. With a huge black wooden dick.
I'm not sure if they'll allow something that explicit into the gallery.

upper body of the warrior looks a bit long compared to the legs, might try raising the waist a bit. shaping up nicely though.

I don't really believe I'll have the time to carry this through, but the theme was just too cool for me not to give it a shot.


So, here's my WIP on the warrior. No clue on how to do the cliché spiky hair, though. Any feedback is welcome.

haha, for some reason I like this one. Shows promise.

Here's mine:



This is my first post here ever. I don't expect to win, but I've been doing a bunch of pixel art - newbie stuff - and I love this site. Feedback appreciated, but really it's just great to finally be producing something.

Just started.

Working off a drawing I did when I was 9.

Changed a little to stop the birdmen being so menish.

Now just birds.

Working on Mage/Healer and Warrior.


Please give advice, I'd really like to finally have a piece accepted on PJ

Improved the mage. He is now clearly elfin. Altered the position of my warrior. Might try to give him more action. I like my thief the way he is. Will probably add a creature and work on the warrior from here on out. Any suggestions welcome.

The thief's pose is inspired from a sprite of Jinn.
I'll add a mage or a pet but I also have a cool idea for a healer :(
Hey admins, is it ok to make 5 or 6 characters?

Progress. The inventor is still just an unfinished doodle at this point, I'm going to do some more research before drawing up a final concept for that character.

I'm not a RPG player, but I wanted to participate in this challenge :)
I'm doing a gorilla warrior (WIP):
Base
 
With accesories
 
I'm imagining all characters as animals. I hope that's ok.
 
PS: As I'm not very good with palettes yet, this characters will be greyscale.

started working an a spell effect for the mage, tweaked the thief a little, gave the warrior a shield and turned his halberd back upright, because I think it looks heftier that way. I think "creature" shall be next...

Improved the spell effect and the colors for the mage. Messed with the warrior's size. Changed the position of the thief. I have decided that my 4th character will be . . . a PACK RHINO! :D

I scrapped my mage (for now) because I didn't like how he turned out.

So now we've got an inventor in his place!

I decided on trying a more modern RPG myself, went with a more simplified look, might add shadows when the other 3 are done, want to make sure I don't go over the color count. Anyways, here's my Inventor so far. :P

Started my PET RHINO, positioned the guys, and changed the colors of the warrior once again. He looks very static - I may have to give him an action pose. Too bad I cant't have him riding the rhino (against the rules - must be separated by transparency).

@sergiotron; I was really wondering how you would manage 4 characters with the ape theme but now I see it as a great idea. Hope you can find the time to color them.

Clean lineart... I'd submit this, but I'm pretty sure people wouldn't like it so I will try to give it some shading.
