This week, we are doing a follow up to this classical weekly challenge. So, we want you to draw an RPG party that consists of exactly 4 sprites, depicting 4 different classes. These classes should be chosen between these, albeit with whatever twists you might dream of:

  • The ranger
  • The bard
  • The paladin
  • The barbarian
  • The necromancer
  • The pet/creature

You must separate sprites from eachother in your canvas using transparency, yet slight overlays for the sake of composition is permitted. Please clearly mention in your description which characters are in your party. And remember: you can make a ww2 team or 50s gangsters as well as classical high fantasy themed party.

Canvas Size - Max 200 x 200.
Colours - Max 32. Including transparency.
Transparency - Required.
Animation - No.
