Classic RPG Monster Set

This are: Troll, Devil, Lizardman, Undine and Evil Eye - 5 preview examples for a complete stock monster set I created.
Uploaded them here at deviantart, to give you pixel art fans some eye candy =)

So what makes this sprites great from a pixel art/gamedev perspective?
-art direction is strongly inspired by classic fantasy RPGs
-64x64px sprites - works very well with todays modern-retro pixel art resolutions, twice the size most classic RPGs had
-colors/detail/shading is comparable to the pro-work in early Squaresoft games (despite the upped resolution)
-overall limited palette (easy recoloring, strong 16-bit aesthetics)

The complete set with 50 monsters includes the most common generic fantasy creatures and enough of em to fill a full classic RPG (supporting battle system types like Lufia, FF I, FFII, early Dragon Quest's etc)
I am selling licenses for gamedev usage over at Gamedev-Market
Or write me directly via Dev-Art, if you want to get them a bit cheaper.

I also made an iconset…

which are currently all asset-products I have for sale.
I am also quite busy these days, so there is no time to produce more asset packs right now.

Your skill level makes me feel very insecure as a pixel artist ._.

Your sprites are quite good. But cyangmou isn't just 'everyone', he is one of the best pixel artists in the world, top-level.
