Hi, I'm skeddles! You might know me as a pixeljoint elder, or from my website, Lospec.
Well after years in the making, and a successful kickstarter, the Lospec Gallery is now open for public use!
In addition to pixel art, we also accept similar low-spec art forms like Low-poly, Voxel Art and Textmode. Our modern web viewer lets you zoom in on pixel art and create thumbnails automatically.
Another great unique feature is "Monthly Masterpieces", which lets you give a boost to the pieces you feel are most important!
After the success with Tiny Towers and Petite Panorama, we continue the series with Diminutive Dungeons.

It's time for another edition of RPG Party challenge. We had a number of those in the past and these are only 5 I could find: The RPG Party, RPG Party #2, The Monster RPG Party, Slime Family Gathering, RPG Band.
This time we are using characters from the tea party scene from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. Draw exactly 4 sprites of characters including: Alice, Hatter, March Hare and Dormouse, while depicting each one of them as differnet RPG class archetype of your choosing. In addition to adding specific atributes, garments, items or weapons, please try to keep the characters somehow recognisable as those 4 from the book.
For those new to this type of challenge, or unfamilliar with the RPG genre I'm inluding a list of 15 example classes to choose from:
Warrior, Paladin, Barbarian, Archer, Wizard, Necromancer, Healer, Priest, Monk, Druid, Thief, Assassin, Rogue, Ranger, Bard, Beastmaster.
If you want to read some class descriptions or find something unique here is a link to more detailed article.
You are not limited to fantasy specific classes. You can go with Cyberpunk (Netrunner, Decker), Western (Gunslinger, Preacher), Space Opera (Jedi Knight, Space Marine), Postapocalyptic (Wasteland Raider, Nuclear Scientist), or any other genre in which we already have established RPG class archetypes or can have them created.
You can also use any weird class you've encountered in any game, or a classs you've created for your own game, or even invent a class specifically for this challenge, but if so, please describe what it is and what it does.
Canvas Size - Max 300 x 300.
Colours - Max 33. Including transparency.
Transparency - Required. Must be used to separate each sprite.
Animation - No.
