Hi everyone
Today I want to ask a harsh question that can be applied to general resources.
I am looking for a certain pixel art style for a top-down game (as it is obviously used in rpg maker apps). However, what i am looking for is a certain style that comes from an isometric view game, more precisely, Revelations Persona and Persona 2 games. However, i could find a rip of Tatsuya Suou (the main character) in the spriters resource website that i refrain to link in order to avoid problems as it is a rip from a commercial game.

In this particular rip i am talking about, adding the isometric "movable" character pieces, there are some of them than are more suitable for a top down game.

What i am asking for is if anyone knows a game i can "template from" in the same style as Revelations Persona sprites but not in isometric point of view.

You mean a low-res pixelart style like Nostalgic Tree and things like that, right?

That would be the second one on this Aluxes catalog, if I understood correctly.

It looks like a pretty straight-forward style: Blocky, plain textures, shiny colors (often), and no outline at all. But bear in mind that last characteristic is more problematic than it seems, because it can make your sprites look flat and indistinguishable from the background, that's why the palette must be very well-thought.

Even though it may seem it in a first glance, make every region with a single color is not enough and you have to make it more 3D-like, so it's not as simple as it looks.

I recommend you to look for pixelart references in general, not only screens from only one game, to understand better how to handle all that.
Here's one I like: Breath of Fire 7 demake

Yesss i totally mean something like these
They seem easy enough to me for doing via pixel-art apps like aseprite or pixel studio.
However, i look something "less detailed" and more importantly, a template for top-down characters.
Your breath-of-fire example is also isometric, cool and complex.

Don't you hate when you're trying to sleep and suddenly the smoke detector needs batteries? That's exactly what happened to me. Now I'm sluggish and tired after that darn thing started chirping at 11:30 at night. Man I wish I had one of those smart smoke detectors that sends a message to your phone way before it starts chirping.
