I finally made a weekly challenge deadline!

Goblins in honor of Goblin Week (which I thought ran sunday to sunday, but apparently was saturday to saturday??).  The "classes" are in honor of the masters of the Savoy Opera (the forerunner of musical theater), Gilbert and Sullivan.  From left to right :

Pirate King (Pirates of Penzance)
Grand Inquisitor (The Gondoliers)
Lord High Admiral (HMS Pinafore)
Lord High Everything Else (The Mikado)

Base Sprite -- call him Thespis, since he "becomes" the other 4.

19 colors instead of the alotted 32 because I didn't want to add any that I would risk losing track of.  THere are a few flatter areas and busier areas but I don't find them distracting.

This is great! And only 19 colors! But now I'm going to just wish for some Gorka Morka stuff, reading what you wrote below. My kingdom for an old school pixel art game set in the 40k universe.

Just noticed the outside AA when hovering over the preview on the vote page. Might be a problem with some themes.

just lovely.

Incredibly detailed. Style and colors are perfect. The Pirate Kind and Lord High Amiral are the best. Can't find anything "bad" in this piece. :D

Mutley (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/26/2014 10:31

While is my favorite.

Impressive use of 19 colors. Awesome sprites

@Mandrill I once had about 3000 points of Orks with plenty of Grots (dat mega-armuh don't gonna oil isself!), so those models definitely shaped the way I view goblins.  I also wanted to craft sprites that were a little meatier than my typical flat look, and the somewhat "forced" shading resembles tricks used when painting miniatures.

Othe semi-conscious inspirations were the 3DS version of FFIII, as well as pixeljoint users FrankieSmileShow and Jinn.

Dastal (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 1/26/2014 09:08

Love your green palette.

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 1/26/2014 09:04

Has a certain Gorkamorka vibe to it, which is flippn' awesome!

Great stuff.
