Minimalistic and original bases of the harshest enemies in a fantasy world - Humans and Orcs, drawn in a side-view perspective are universal for all kinds of genres, themes and purposes.

Run'n'jump in an arcade title, slay monsters in endless dungeons in a roguelike game, command an army in turn-based tactical fights or big, real-time strategy wars, create your own fighters with unique designs and moves for duels or beat'em'up adventures.

Placed in a 20x20 pixels frames, small and simple characters are easy to customize even for developers that are not used to create or edit graphics. Four animations plus a death state has been conveniantly put into just nine frames making It much faster to add more characters to your project and leaving a lot of space for custom actions that you'd wish your characters to have.

* Idle, Walk, Punch/Stab and Hit animations with a single Death frame for all version of both bases
* Each character - Human and Orc comes in three, different skin tones, three sizes and two versions - with or without outline giving anormous amount of possibilities
* 20x20 pixels sprite frames leave a lot of free space for hair and basic accessories for your characters, feel free to expand It to 24x24 pixels to fit bigger hats/helmet and bulky weapons
* More Micro Characters to come...
