Here are the 26 game interface icons I coloured from the Legends of Zork

did a fantastic job creating simple and iconic symbols that could be scaled small and still be recognizable. Once they were approved I coloured them up, focusing on vibrant tones and rendering that would help retain their clarity.
I got a bit carried away with details like the wood grain, reflected rim light on the metal, stitching on the boot and texture of the coconut husk. At the smaller in-game size most of those details get lost, but at least it's there if they ever want to use the icons bigger later on.
My favorites are the bleeding heart for health and the burlap bag of coins.
