Not to sure if they've included avatars in the download. There are a lot of images, and I haven't had a chance to look through them all yet. I have seen a few npc sprites though, so perhaps you'll find something useful.
Glad to hear things are going well, keep up the good work :)
We're working hard to try and finish a few projects. Then we just need to find a way to start making some money from them (all sounds so simple doesn't it!)
Anyway, looking forward to seeing some of your work, so keep me posted!
