A break from the job system: Characters!

I've got plenty more work on assigning the characters tasks, but I'm taking a break today to code something more fun-- characters!

I'm fairly decent at realism with character portraits myself, but as much as I tried to make my own art work, I couldn't get anything congruent with the retro style. Since I'm going to want to stack features to get a wide range of different looks, I decided that the solution to this problem was proper pixel artists. Specifically, doll-makers.

Modified from these portrait bases.
I've been corresponding with JuliePM about using her work; this stuff is the free, temporary non-commercial placeholder. I've modified it a bit, but the real art will be commissioned later. Still, not bad for a temporary piece?

Also, Julie has an art blog. Go look at it. :)
