Well done! Beating Arena is proper work but a beautiful adventure. With Your project, you will just begin to touch upon all the magic that is Arena gameplay :) You still have time to generate lots of memories :)

Is there a tool out there for extracting art and tiles from TES1?

Of course, it's probably planned for the new engine to externalize this data into pngs for modders at some point. Just thinking it would be fun to tinker on this game's art as we wait for the engine to mature.

Looking forward to playing Arena at v1.0, myself. :)

Confession time: I've never played it before. Or Battlespire.
Previous experience tells me it's very easy to misunderstand the tone, intent, or meaning of what I've posted. If you have questions, ask.

I don't have any tools with my project for that yet, but there are a few existing ones that other people have made (that's why I don't have any myself yet). Just look at the Arena files page on the UESP: http://en.uesp.net/wiki/Arena:Files#Misc_Utilities

BSATool should let you do what you want to do (convert .IMG to .PNG, edit, then convert back to .IMG). I haven't tried it myself yet, though.

Someone else also made some changes to the game's art for fun, so you can get an idea of what's possible: https://artinpinkerton.com/tag/tes-arena/
