What's great about your pack is that you stray away from what most people are doing which is pumping as much detail into these blocks as possible. You are going for a minimalistic approach while maintaining an overall great look and feel. Keep up the great work!
OMG your pack is just perfect!!!
No, really! You did some awesome job here :]
But I just think that the grass a little bit too green, the color is too strong, but that's just me.
And I will download and use your pack as soon as you finish it :]]]
EDIT: Oh by the way, you said some games with minimalist graphics, but take a look at Animal Crossing (Wii, DS , Gamecube) as well, in case you need more inspiration.
I'm really looking foward to this patch.
maybe trying to do minimalist armor as well? I was thinking like, for exemple, the leather one could have only one shoulder or, maybe a chest strap thingie like Seiya's? I think it's intended to protect the heart. Oh well. Also, i'm not pixel artist, nor I have idea if the armor stuff must be simetrical :/
