Hi Gnomers! - thought I would start a list of - free - pixel art drawing programs (while we await RoboBob's updates!).
This may jump-start creativity for pixel artists into making their own spritesheets for Gnomoria! There are so many flavors to choose from!
Let's see that artistic vigilance!
Feel free to suggest your own favorite Gnomoria spriting tool!
If this list does qualify being put into the Addons/Textures subforum, we CAN move it
