Messing about with Dwarf Fortress. I'm not really done with this yet, (dwarfort has crazy amounts of stuff in it, and I got some other things I ought to be doing) but I wanted to show these off while i remember.
It goes:
smith, miner, stoneworker, woodworker
guard, jeweler, craftsman, farmer
hunter, mechanic, fisherman, noble
child, baby, default, warrior
(the game colours these ones in.)
dog, cat, horse, deer
wolf, mule, goat, cow
fox, muskox, camel, two-hump camel
(various vermins)

And there's a kobold in the preview. . I got others, but they're not at the showing off stage yet.

I would very much like to see these "others". The ones here are fantastic.

Those animal silouhettes are fantastic. I was very surprised at the variety of animals you were able to create.

Here's that, then:

Mike: You can mess with it if you like, man, that's cool with me.

Most certainly do! I'm getting kinda bored with DR's tiles :P And these definitely have more style to them (although they're less readable :( ).
Do you mind if I try to toy with them a bit?

 I shouldn't be doing actual pixelwork on this stuff this week, I need to do up my secret santa pixels and, ideally, I should be started coding on my own game. I can compile what I have now up onto the net somewhere, though.

Finish it so we can play it! :D

(bearded childs) shamelessly stolen from existing dwarfort character sets. (see on that game's wiki) A lot of awesome pixelly stuff there.

@adam: the animals are scaled down because I need the silhouettes, the tiles display at 100%, 16 by 16, they're tiny. Similarly, I haven't had any success with fine details, they don't display clearly. Once you play the game a short while you can pick which dwarf you're looking at just by colour (and these tiles make it a lot easier, mind - by default, all dwarves are represented by the same smiley face, only the colour is different).

Ah! I thought I was the only one around that played dwarf fortress and enjoyed it! These would be an amazing improvement to all the @'s. The camels are my favorite <3

Lovely. Especially the vermins.

Adam (Level 9 Human) @ 12/5/2007 06:29

I love these, as all of your similar works. Great colors!

Some nitpicking: Why scaling down animals? I'm  not sure if this work is related to your "legacy" pieces, there are bigger creatures too. Some of the dwarves are a bit too similar to the default. I'd add some little detail (like an apron for the smith, a helm for the miner, a magnifying glass for the jeweler, and so on...), to enhance the differences.

Cool stuff anyway, as always.
