Been scouring Google lately for some nice sprites since I am at the point where just normal placeholder images aren't really working anymore. Though sadly Google isn't being to helpful, mainly because you can't find what the license for a certain image is and/or there isn't a full set of sprites to use so every image varies in design.
So I was wondering if anyone knew of a good place to find some free sprites (Preferably a whole set). What I am working on is currently a vertical shoot em up game (IE a plane/spacecraft flying vertically shooting everything in its path) and don't really care to much about the setting (It could be planes flying around the world or A spaceship around space or even a underwater craft scouring the ocean) and I'm not to pick on the art style either.
Anyways just thought I would see if anyone knew of a reliable site to look for them at or even if anyone with artistic abilities is looking for something to do ;p.
Have a few wanted posters out on the net for a artist right now but not looking to promising since it is just a little project and most likely won't be released for money or anything.
