Character Customization Resources (Gen 4)

Character Customization Resources (Gen 4) 1.0


I want to share this resource with you that I worked on. These are files that contain character creation parts so that you can easier make unique characters or use them to introduce a character creator to your game.
They contain: back sprites, overworld sprites (for walking, running, bicycle) and front sprites for male and female characters. Each of them contains a full animation cycle as seen in the picture at the bottom. All in all there are per gender: 18 tops, 14 pants/skirts, 18 accessories (like glasses or hats), 4 Hairstyles for each gender, 3 backpacks/bags for the overworld sprites only and 4 skin colors. I also made about 5 color variants for each item of clothing. The colors were all taken from the pokemon base games, so they should fit seamlessly with vanilla resources. I included a picture below to showcase the possibilities but these are by no means the only ones.
I feel like I should point out that I originally made this as a mod to replace the customization options in pokemon insurgence. However, even though some of the clothes are inspired by the game I created all resources from scratch (well, and from the vanilla sprites).

You can freely edit, use and share the files.

I'm new to pixel art as a whole and this was a really good place to start having a template for all kinds of custom characters!
You're a life-saver! It's so hard to find Gen 4 resources and this one just has so much. Thank you!
This is perfect for someone who's trying to make a game and is not good at making sprites, thanks a lot for this!
I love how customisable they are! It was super easy to mix and recolor them when making my own sprite. (which has far more quality now than what I had done before)

Keep up your great work!
Great job with the resources, saw this on pokecommunity with an accompanying script for player clothing but it's too bad there isn't a demo for that.
Ah, sorry. I only know how to make graphics ^^'
As someone who's trying to have custom sprites for their game but isn't good at making sprites from scratch, this is perfect!
A really delightful resource! Makes it really easy to get into character design, especially for people who aren't great at pixel art. But even pros should check out the selection-there's tons of potential inspiration!
