- Pyxeledit is a pixel art, tile map, tile set and sprite sheet editor of awesomeness. It's inspired by Pixothello but is improved in many ways (not the least of which is it's cross-platform.)
- Pixen is a really nice pixel art app for OS X but it doesn't have the same awesome tileset creation mode as Pyxeledit.
- A collection of links to game assets and various game-dev related tools.Here's a list of art asset creation tools
- Pixel art tutorials
Turns out you can do most things with asynchronous Python and SVG! Turberfield utilities library (docs, demo).
- Icons for eveything - royalty free icons (over 1 million, it claims)
- /r/gamedev often has free game assets and other resources (though much of the content is about money using games).
