This is largely a study of the Fire Emblem series' tiles & sprites. Although I didn't directly copy a single pixel, I tried to follow their art direction and reproduce something that looks like a professional FE title, and in the process learn a lot! I certainly have a new found respect for things like the mountains here, which my own tiles pale to in terms of versatility. I also referenced Shining Force Final Conflict, which has some nice tiles. I might try a lower spec version one day.
The characters are all adaptions of Shining Force II designs.
Edit: Changed frame speeds a little. Original.
