Hey Brullov, I hope you and your family are okay. Thanks a bunch for designing such great art. I made a quick game with it and credited you. If you're interested in seeing the game, feel free to drop by for a bit: https://bossblitz.itch.io/sword-instructor-gerald


Hi Friend! I really like so much about your pixel art.I'm wondering can you make full game platformer include character,enemy,UI,background,obstacle,... and can you show me about price? Thank you so much!


this is amazing. If i could make stuff like this myself i would abandon my life and go all out pixelartist with this style

Hi! First of all, how in the world is this freee??!!??? My guy, this is like 20 - 25$ stuff. Also, I know i just found your page and your art but still, I know you are going through a tough time. I hope you can make it through :D

Hi! Your work is amazing. I had already bought it before. I was thinking of a character with that style, only 16x16. Do you have any that you can put up for purchase? Thanks.

Hello, thanks! Due to my lack of time, I don't work on any assets atm.

Hi , hope you consider ( lodge climbing and swimming animation )  .

 looks nice  i love it

Are there any plans for an update? Thanks!

Hi! I am working on my personal project atm, so I don't think any update is coming soon.

"Ladder climbing" is very nice, but it is incomplete without "Ladder enter"/"Ladder leave" animations. For reference (to understand what I am talking about) you can watch the animations of the main character Kaho in "Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight".
And since we can crouch, then it would be nice to have an attack animation for this state. Nothing complex – a direct forward thrust with the sword.
Many thanks.

Thanks for the advice! I will consider it for my next asset update.

Is there a preview of the run animation? That's usually the deal-breaker for me with a lot of these asset packs.

Pretty awesome overall though. If you ever decide to add a wall slide and a "dodge roll" animation this will be an instant buy for me (or if you add said animations into an separate purchasable pack or whatever).

Thanks for kind words! Unfortunately I can't post previews for other animations, but believe me, running is smooth and well done :)

I am working on update for this pack, wall slide and dodge roll are on my list. Also walking, resting and ladder climbing. But with next update the price will increase, so it's better to buy early and get free updates.

Thanks for the updated preview. 

My initial thoughts after just purchasing:

Overall, I really like it -- I'm looking forward to seeing where this asset pack goes in the future. The "guide" images are very useful, I wish more asset packs did this. Also, having a few different colors to choose from is a great touch.

I would really like to see a run animation (or other animations in general) without the sword and shield in hand. For the game prototype I'm working on the player character doesn't always have a weapon equipped. I could probably do this myself with my mediocre pixel skills but without the source files (i.e. layers) it makes it a bit more difficult.

I'd absolutely love a "run" animation with the characters main hand pointed towards his back so I can easily swap out different weapons. I'm terrible at explaining this, so here's an example of what I mean (https://imgur.com/a/gjsDZ2F).

Sorry for writing  a storybook here but I'll just throw in my animation "wish" list for potential future inspiration.

  • equipment-less animations
  • dodge roll
  • ledge grab / climb ledge
  • directional melee attacks (up, down)
  • dash

Thanks for your work.

Thanks for kind words! I will consider your comment for my next asset update :)

i can't purchase :2015 vat, what the hack is?

Sad! You should contact itch support, I can't control this situation.

Wow, this is incredible! Such beautiful, clean animations. Love it :D

Thank you! Do not forget to rate this pack. It is important to me :)

I rated as soon as I bought it :) Do you have plans to release expansions for this character in the future?


Thanks! Sure, I plan to add more animations in v 0.2. I am working on bigger asset with monsters and environment, so I suppose this pack will get the update with BIG pack release.

Omg, look at these amazing animations, and this awesome design, so fluid.

Thanks, mate!
