Pixel Art Challenge: Fire Emblem Engage GBA


"Fire Emblem" is a 30 years old Tactical RPG saga. The different episodes of this series have, therefore, been released on various platforms, but many consider the Gameboy Advance to be the best of them.

So, this week's challenge aims to answer the question :

“What would have happened if the last Fire Emblem had been released on the GBA ?”

To answer it, you will have to create 2 sprites of 1 of the characters, from the last opus, “Fire Emblem: Engage”, in the style of GBA Fire Emblem Games.

You can pick any character (not flying) and must stay true to its character design.

The two sprites should be a "Map Sprite" and an "In Battle Sprite", with size limits of 32x32 and 64x64 pixels respectively.
Note that units on the ground with different poses and armor sizes will not occupy the same space.

Useful links including list of characters and sprite examples.

Canvas Size - 100 x 100 (includes one 32x32 sprite and one 64x64 sprite)
Colors - Max 16 (15 + transparency)
Transparency - Required.
Animation - No.

Haha no problem ^^ !

I am very happy to see that someone likes this Challenge. Because, I know that the retro pixel art, if all the restrictions, does not appeal to ... everyone x'D!

Concerning the Fire emblem game on Switch, the story is quite classic, but if you have any question or you want to see screenshots in game, don't hesitate to contact me on Discord. My nickname is Mecha20 and I'm on PJ's discord.

There is also the link in the challenge in which I made a list of all the characters that can be chosen for the challenge (protagonists, antagonists, minions ...).
