Hey, if i buy this for 1$ i get full rights to use it in my game? (i wanna be sure) @Penzilla

Yes, you have the right to use the assets for commercial or private projects as long as you credit me. More info is also on the project page :)

How I can credit you

Can i use this character for my game? I'm still learning how to do pixel art, and I still can't create characters because it's very difficult for me

You are free to use the character in any personal or commercial projects, as long as you credit me. Information is also provided in the project description :)

can i use this in making a logo?

If I add it to a video game I can't add a link to the page, does it affect anything?

I changed the color to use in the game. Does this apply to copyright?


The description says you're allowed to modify the character so long as you still give the artist credit.


Exactly right :)

You are welcome to do so as long as you still credit me :)

Btw, I' m making a rougelike by using it, so can I use it?

The grid size for the animation sheet is 32x32px. You are welcome to use these assets for both personal and commercial projects as long as you credit me (full info in the project description).

Thank you very much for your contribution, I was inspired by your character to create my first game, I just published the beta version: https://gx.games/pt-br/games/iqv0nf/soulstify-beta-version-/

I want to use this in my game 'Mystic Mayhem'. I suck at making pixel art so thank you! I think i will make him a different color. I will credit you ofcourse!

The game is a 2d platformer/rpg. I may even edit him to add my own weapons ! :D

Hello! I'm currently developing a 2D game called "LetMeEat" that revolves around eating and avoiding hunger-related challenges. The game features a hunger bar that gradually depletes over time, adding a level of strategy to the platformer gameplay.

I came across your Hooded Protagonist asset on itch.io and instantly fell in love with it! Your character perfectly matches the visual style and theme of my game. I would be honored to include your character in my game and showcase your work to the players.

To ensure proper credit and recognition, I'll prominently display your name ("Penzilla") and provide a direct link to your asset package within the game. This way, players can discover more of your amazing creations. Additionally, I plan to create variations of your character using different color schemes to enhance visual diversity in the game.

I'll be uploading the game on both itch.io and the Play Store. Would you grant me permission to use your asset in my game?

You can try this version here but its not finished I made a lot of changes which will be finished in 1-2 weeks 


SO glad to hear from you! Off course you are allowed to use the character for the game, it's free for commercial use. I really do appreciate the care and credit though. Amazing job, he/she looks great in purple XD

achei sua habilidade com pixel art muito boa e agradecido por poder usar sua arte em meu jogo, os créditos pela sua arte serão todo seu, obg. ;)

Great to hear! If you use my work in anything publicly availeble, I would love if you would send me a link. Kind regards :)

what u have used to make it

I mainly use photoshop, but I'm currently switching over to creating pixel art in procreate.

(1 edit)

can you make it compatible with RPGs? (four-directional movement)

It's not something I'm planning on currently. I'm always happy to take input from the comments on my project, but it's not always something that is applicable to a specifc project or my current schedule.

I love him. So much, that I made him the main character for my firt tiny game Running Wizard

Thank you for linking it, and for crediting me! I absolutely love seeing my assets get used in context!

such a good pack, thank you.

So cute!!!


im making a space roguelike and this is perfect for a boss, another name going in the credits

Beautiful character

This is really cool! I will use it on my project and credit you.

Olá! Estou fazendo um jogo e pretendo lançar ele pago(1 real por ai), e gostaria de usar seu personagem para ser o protagonista do jogo, vou colocar seus créditos, queria saber se posso ultilizar seu personagem para meu jogo?

OBS:Modifiquei um pouco ele para mostrar a vc:

Hi, you are more than welcome to use the character. There is also a description of usage on the package page, but as long as you credit me you are free to use it.
I'm replying in English since the alternative would be to go through google translate.
Kind regards :)

I want a picture of every movement of the character because I am designing a game and I want her to be the hero of the game. Is it possible?



I'm not quite sure what you mean? The animation sheet for the project has all frames of movements, and the gifs showcase them all in action. You could take a frame from each animation to represent that animation as well. 

Thanks for the assets can i use it for my game? im gonna give you credit!

Glad you like the assets, you are free to use them for both personal and commesial projects (full usage info is in the description on the project page)
And thank you very much! If you credit me as Penzilla, then that's perfect!

Hi ! Do you mind if I modify the sprite for my game ? (I will credit you ofc)

Not at all, go right ahead :)


I am a game developer (and planning to make a development YouTube channel)

and I'm wondering if I can use this for my project (which I might make devlogs on) for some character's in it, If I upload it I am going to make it free but I probably wont upload it, I will credit you in the video, ill make some modifications and wont use all the assets, so can I use your work in my project?

You are welcome to use this character for your project.
I'll point to the description above:
"You are welcome to use these items for both private and commercial projects, as long as you credit me (the license is for the purchasers personal or commercial use, and does not allow the purchaser to re-sell or re-distribute the included files). "

This is really similar to a character I've made few months ago:

It's really cool. I hope your project goes well :)

Hello there

Your character is so cute. Can we contact him to make a commercial game?

Not sure if you can contact him, but you sure can contact me :)

I did try :) but yours twitter account closed to message. Can you write me?




Nice, 4 stars.

Dear Penzilla,

I am Peony, a university student at university of saint joseph Macau! Me and my teammate David came across to your work and are interested to use this hooded character! We are creating a little p5js sequence with a story surrounding a child going through mental health issues and raise awareness about mental health illnesses. We would like to use your hooded protagonist as our main character but we thought it would be interesting to make a slight modification to it. We thought the face looked too mysterious and cartoon-like to fit our project so we were wondering if you are okay if we do modification as such inspired by your hooded protagonist:

as well as the movements as such to fit our story:

1.fetal position crying alone, hiding

2.(from the fetal position) lifting head curious, looking at the "item we give him" and then standing up, either facing left or right, or both

3. walking nervously or sadly left or right

4.looking at the object , poking it with a stick or just investigating it but with no real interest

5. standing up and "wiping tears"

6. receiving a hug from another character

We love your work and will definitely credit you if we are allowed to make above modifications! Please let us know! This work will be published and will not be sold, for your information!

Many thanks, hope to hear from you!


This is my colleague on this project

Hi there,

That sounds like a great project! Definitely feel free to use the character as is, or make any edits and additional animations that you need. I hope it turns out super.
I would also love to see how the project turns out, if you want to send over a link.

Kind regards, Penzilla

Hi , First of all Great work btw , I would like to ask if we are permitted to edit the character to our liking ? We are currently students and would like to use your work in our project.
