If you are familiar with GrandmaDeb’s Lists, you may know that her very first list was of animal sprites. Over the years, many artists have gone on their way, and we remember them by their contributions. However, in recent times, several hosting sites have also gone on their way as well! I am posting these excellent resources here to complete the listing of sprites in my list so that artists who expected their materials to be shared and available will still be appreciated and their materials will be available.
Since folks will ask, no artist gave explicit commercial use permission, so except for the recolors, you would need to contact the artists for commercial use.
First up are bears, a creative recolor of Mack’s bear with a great panda, by Nastasia Wolf.
(Thanks, Avery for credit info!)
Other recolors by Nastasia Wolf include a set of the butterflies; sometimes a nice treat. [=
Miya, from FSM, made this fun, leaping frog
Next up are LastLaugh’s flying and perching Owl sprites – really very nice.
KiKiink made down sprites for the fox and the wolf – very hard to find when you need them!
And Weem (Also known as Raith) made these Squid (inspired by the XP squid, but a redraw, so OK for VX and Ace.)
Hiura Flour, another lost FSM artist, posted cat sprites with tails twitching back and forth, and dogs that sit and wag their tails:
Matsuo Kaito made a skeleton dog in a request on VX.net:
And Darksun made downs for Macks’s animals:
