Hi guys

A lot of artwork is already open licensed on the internet, and it is just sitting there, waiting to be used!
I thought there must be some of it that can be 'recycled', into the OPP style.
Benefits:

  • Little work, a lot of result
  • Using the open arts what they were made/licensed for, increasing their value and purpose
  • Possibly drawing in new artists to the project by letting them and their communities know we've used their art

Any artwork that is either licensed CC-BY or artwork that is in the public domain (and CC0) can be recolored/resized/pixelled for the OPP. Make sure that the original creator gets added to the list of contributors

Suggestions of what to recycle:

Pixel art that is close in style and scale to OPP (recolor)
Sketches, concepts that can be turned into sprites
3D models & animations that can be rasterized and pixelled/traced over
Anything else!

If you know any suitable open licensed artwork, post it here! Or get working on transferring it to the OPP style yourself!

I have already created these clouds by recoloring the cc0 old Frogatto clouds

Also I am working on some public domain icons. Transforming them to a 32x32 grid and then recoloring them to DB32. My progress:



Spread the free artwork, remix!

Icons now finished


Anyone aware of any other artwork that is recyclable?
