Introducing the Flight of the Conchords, New Zealand's fourth-most-popular pop-folk-parody duo.

Bret the Rhymenocerous fills the mage-knight role,while Jemaine, the Hiphopopotamus takes a more physical fighter role. If you haven't heard of them, check them out on youtube.

*Minor Update*

The initial version was a bit simplistic, so I've added a few more details to the piece, and changed Bret's weapon to a proper staff to reflect his mage-like class. I've also included the original FF Tactics styled sprites I made for them too.

I instantly recognized them from the preview. Pretty awesome!

They look much better after the update, I really like your style.

Excellent update, they look great.

I predict your first place ribbon here ;D

Thanks! I initially planned to have them wearing traditional fantasy RPG garb (i.e. helmets and armor), but they seemed to lose their distinct style and become less recognizable, so instead I went with their usual clothes, and just added a few RPG trope embelllishments. (The plaid shirt took a while to get right)

Also. I've changed Bret's sword to a staff to differentiate them more.

Bret's really got it going on in this piece. His beard is good.

Nice work, nice pixelling. Would like to have seen you take the RPG theme a bit further, rather than just making them a couple of samurai :)

Nice colours and pixels! :)
