Yep, thats exactly what we need.

Since the final sprite in the game will be no larger than 64x64
pixels, we don't need much details or textures, a simple solid-colored
mesh should do most of the time and recycling the walk-cycle/bones for
other units types should also be possible, so I hope that that will
speed up the development a bit.

For buttons and other detail-views on the characters we will most
likly use normal 2d drawn stuff, so modeling a detailed face shouldn't
be needed.

Color and style mach pretty good what I had in mind as I drew the
sketch, very nice work.

For the final game sprites we probally need thicker arms and legs,
etc, since with real-life proportions we will end up with a one
pixel-thick arm in the final small gamesprite. A picture which shows
what I mean is probally this one (just a random google-images
