There is quite a story behind those.

A long time ago in a russian pixel community far far away some guy did a critique another guy's piece, making a rework along the way.

After 150 comments of holywar, a few other artists, including myself, made another few reworks of that hammer and named it "green hammer burning with a righteous blue flame". It even became some kind of flashmob in russian pixel community - to draw that hammer.

After a while, when I was at country-side, I somehow stumbled upon our family shed with instruments. Being inspired by the glorious tools there, I decided to make another few icons, being:
- Handsaw woven from pure acid
- Former wood chopper, that changed his ideology and nowadays protecting nature and making publical speeches against deforestation of South America
- Red crowbar of hope for the bright future
- Personal jade screwdriver of the emperor himself
- Armature

There were also Fallen pliers and Purple chthonic chainsaw, but my neighbours took them to fix their porch.

@BigPotato, simple wooden porch. They need the chainsaw to cut new wooden planks and they need the pilers to get rid of the old ones.

Your neighbours need pliers and a chainsaw for a repair job? What kind of porch do they have?

No wonder there are many talented pixellers from Russia.. :)

These are great, palettes and all.

Interesting story, too.

Thanks, Geci.

They do. There are a few pixel communities out there, the biggest one being ".pixel", with 48000 members. Mostly they are just viewers, and mostly this community is all about posting pictures from pj, twitter and tumblr. But still it's enough to inspire other people to try pixelling.

Nice one.. The tools actually have Warhammer race-like characters :D

I'm really a fan of the axe.

So, people share pixel art over vkontakte?

Russian pixel art community produces many theories about the reasons it's so big.

The biggest theory is - in Russia all the high-technological devices like Sega, Nintendo and Gameboy were spreading not in the 80-s and early 90-s, but in late 90-s and 00-s.
As a result, many people from 15 to 30 (which is the most common age for pixel-artist) grew up playing pixel games.
And also, it's snowballing nowadays due to the "vkontakte" (aka "russian facebook"), which has good tools for developing of the communities and has almost every russian in it.

Wow these are fantastic! Why does russia seem to have such a big pixel art community? Sucks not being able to take part in it.

Oooh nice, the great pixelart comes with a cool story too. Damn the amazing presentation of these magical tools make legendary weapons in most RPG's look bad.
