For the weekly challenge. From left to right:

Warrior: Oscar isn't a great thinker but he can wield any weapon with a single hand and his reactions are quite fast when he gets a command to fire them.

Healer: Dr. Günther Meinhoff is the best field medic around, not because he can bandage well, but because he can tell who can make it and who can't and doesn't lose time with unnecessary ceremonies.

Inventor: Brains of the team, Prof. Marvin Friedman is a jewish university teacher gone half insane because of his experiments. No, he didn't inhale a chemical, he was just angry that the university management didn't finance his experiments.

Thief: John Keboi had a dream childhood until he lost his parents in a mysterious accident. He was adopted by his uncle who had his eyes on the little boy's wealth. Well, the rest is obvious, he killed his uncle and lived all his youth as a fugitive. If anyone knows where, when and how to enter a place, it's Keboi.

Thanks to PJ forum, especially Dpixel for his advice. And Jinn since I inspired the pose of the thief from a sprite he drew for me (also shamelessly stole 2 colors :) I plan to make a mage and a pet after the challenge is over. EDIT: Now that he's mentioned it, the inventor's pose is unconsciously inspired from Atomic mushroom. (well, come to think of it, others are probably inspired from somewhere too.)

I've got a tactical strategy game that these characters are suitable for but I haven't animated them yet.

luigi_mu (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 2/8/2013 10:15

 @Gecimen, are they finished to be a part of some indie games? The needle man is freaking cool!

WorldWithoutWords (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 10/15/2012 03:57

Awesome : D

Muiriled (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 10/5/2011 22:43

Very very good work.

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 10/4/2011 06:42

@Paulo, snowk, Daniel, ahmet5; Thanks all the way, I was just about to start pixelling elves and dwarves like everyone else, then decided to make a post-apocalyptic-magical-steam punkish theme but settled on a 70's B-movie theme, since it would give me the chance to interpret the classes differently. But I saw Helio did the most obscure interpretation with nurse as a healer and magician as an illusionist :)

ahmet5 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/4/2011 05:18

your characters are delicately drawn. Faved it ;)

DanielHyaku (Level 4 Button Man) @ 10/3/2011 21:54

I like it. And I've been to the rest of your gallery and, whoa, you've made some great progress on this one =)

snowk (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 10/3/2011 20:44

fresh and well pixeled! Nice interpretation of the challenge. I like it when people think outside the box as opposed to seeing a challenge that pertains to rpg parties and automatically thinking: knight, bearded mage, white cloaked healer, and hooded thief.

Paulo Peres (Level 6 SWAT) @ 10/3/2011 15:17

Great job!

All the characters are amazing, I liked so much the idea of the modern characters.

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 10/3/2011 08:17

Edit: fixed the banding on the knee of the healer :)

@Sergio: Thanks a lot mate, same goes to your piece which I like a lot.

Sergiotron (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 10/3/2011 05:02

Awesome result! Faved :)

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 10/3/2011 01:45

@Jalonso; Oh yes, stupid me... That's huge. will fix.

@DB; Thanks :)

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/2/2011 19:20

I would say this is the best thing you've ever pixelled.

Nitpick is the orange pant knee's banding :p

DawnBringer (Level 10 Pixel artist) @ 10/2/2011 17:32

Nice bunch. :)

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 10/2/2011 05:06

@Failure, luisfelipes and Hapiel; thanks a lot guys! I think rushed concepts sometimes work better than well thought ones.

@wuhu; yeah gunpowder vs. magic :)

wuhu (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 10/2/2011 01:20

i rike...

if you click on the weekly challenge gallery, our two previews are next to each other.. they look like the 2 partys facing off

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 10/2/2011 01:18

Yup, you made a nice alignment in the end! Good and original characters :)

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 10/2/2011 00:51

Thanks mate, if it wasn't for you they would be standing as soldiers without a taste.

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 10/2/2011 00:50

Thanks dude! Yeah, the back arm resembles a lot. I didn't take any references while drawing it, yet I remember seeing your avatar a lot of times. It must be some kind of unconscious inspiration. Want me to write it down in the description? (already would have, had I been aware of it). Edit: NVM added already :)

dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 10/1/2011 21:51

Very nice job of these.  They have a lot of character.  Nice color choices too.

reis (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 10/1/2011 20:34

 Fantastic job.

AtomicMushroom (Level 4 Button Man) @ 10/1/2011 19:50

 Good job on the sprites, the warrior is my favorite of the bunch.

The inventor looks very familiar...

failureboy (Level 7 Assassin) @ 10/1/2011 18:43

 Good improvement on the thief's gun.  I, too, want to add to my party when the challenge is over :)

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 10/1/2011 17:14

Somehow this still isn't accepted so I changed the preview thinking it could be because of the background of the preview.
