420 -Pixel Art- Icons for RPG by 7Soul1 420 -Pixel Art- Icons for RPG by 7Soul1
Set of 420 RPG icons, free for commercial use
You can download a pack with them all in individual .png files here:…

Inspired by Maplestory, Ragnarok Online and Diablo 2



So this guy @_Engrenage_ made this cool html+css sprite code to show the icons. It might be useful to someone if you're working on a browser game. Preview:…



I removed any icon where I used an icon from another game as a base. Someone pointed out to me that using something from a commercial game as a base and making it public is a bad move, even when unintentional. Sorry for the inconvenience.

*weed joke.
7Soul1 Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Funny thing is that I only noticed that a long time after I made those icons :P
Blackfire2Q Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2015  Student Artist
Hehe. Yeah well I guess there's only one thing to do when it's 420.

Make 1 extra icon so people like me won't spam you with the may mays (memes)
7Soul1 Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
In the 5+ years this has been here, I think you're the first one to make a 420 joke :P

Thanks for sharing, great job!
cryptonic Featured By Owner Edited Oct 1, 2014
That's a really great set, and it looks like you're on your way as a sprite artist! One thing I might suggest is that you cater to developer needs just a bit more by using your real estate a bit more effectively.  For example, color variations aren't required on the containers, as a runtime hue filter could give me any color combination that I wanted out of those icons, and some of the arrows with symbols behind them would make more sense as a set of symbols, and a single arrow. I can overlay them in any combination I wanted with any of the other item icons myself, giving you more room to provide unique parts
7Soul1 Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I usually think about that, but I also consider that a lot of people are using more limiting engines like RPGMaker and Game Maker and might not have those effects available.

I then try to provide a decent variation on some of the icons that might be useful to have in different colors, and I rather do it instead of leaving it to the user to do a hue-shift because I have the palette and by using those colors I keep the icons in harmony with the rest of the set, while a hue-shift will result in different colors

At home, with a mouse and photoshop
DoubleA2015 Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2014
I Sumopaint close enough?
7Soul1 Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Whatever you feel most comfortable with. It looks a lot like photoshop, too
DoubleA2015 Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2014
Thanks! I have a Chromebook right now, so I can't use Photoshop.

These images are still modifications from the original creations. These are NOT custom creations and should not be used in commercial games. It seems there are a lot of 'developers' out there that need a graphic designer to help make their project come true (or vice versa).

    The problem with images like these are the shapes. You can get away with changing the color pattern/shading of certain objects like spheres, small items like potions, barrels, pots, etc,  but it looks like most of these images are just modifications (i.e shape remains the same, color/shading differs). Using images like these for commercial purposes can and will get you in a lot of trouble (especially if its a game that has a pricetag attached to it). How do I know? I thought I had my project ready for release until I consulted with a few lawyers -- unfortunately 'free-to-use' images come with a catch.

If your game is going to be played by a small amount of people, then sure you probably won't have any problem. However if you are wanting to make a game that will be offered to millions (in my case, android/IOS), better stick with CUSTOM creations.

Also, creative commons licenses shouldn't be taken seriously.
"Creative Commons makes no warranties regarding any information, tools or licenses provided on or through the Websites and Services, and disclaims liability for damages resulting from their use." [taken from their terms of use]
How do you REALLY know those images aren't modified from a original creation not listed under CC licenses? For instance, sprites I see on 'opengameart' are listed as CC by SA and all it requires is to 'give credit to me'. However they are modified creations from the RPG Maker Game Engine that has sprite-creation features -- this is merely a modified image that has its own copyright and can not be used for commercial purposes outside of the RPG Game Maker.

Best follow the old saying: You want something done, you have to do it yourself.

After looking at the art of your swords i noticed that the colors im using for mine are a bit odd, so i picked 2 colors ( the middle one #5e8abe, and the shadowed one #b0def0) and used them on mine ( a simple 18x18 sword). Im actually more of a programmer than an artist first time i practice art/pixel art, and i have no problem with crediting your art but i dont want to deal with any licensing/copyright terms. Is that okay with you ?.

PS: this is an image of my art old/new Here.

No problem in using my palette ^^
Rockfang Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2013
Above you say that this art is CC BY 3.0 but on the right side of the page it says the art is CC BY SA 3.0. Which license is correct?
7Soul1 Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thx, forgot to change the DA licence. CC BY 3.0 is the correct one
KivaEntertainment Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2013
Wow these are really great!

I'm interested in using these in an rpg, but I had a question about licensing that hours of searching the internet could not answer:

All of the game's resources will be publicly available on Github, but I want to retain exclusive commercial rights to the game.
Specifically, I want to use this license:…
However, that seems to conflict with the license that you released these under, as it would require that I allow others to build on my work (The game) for commercial purposes.

But it becomes a little bit ambiguous because the images could be kept separate as a "texture pack" or something similar, and that pack could be kept under this license.
So I am wondering if it is okay with you if the images keep the license that you used (And I may do recolors which would stay under the same license), but the game as a whole is released with a commercial license?
