Java Chess - Any practical complete GIF zips for a chess app?


My Java chess behemoth AI is going well, but I'd like to graduate from a textual chess-board-state to some sort of chess JFrame or Frame that isn't lame.
RNBQKBNR is good for initial white, with black lower case, but now that things are picking up, it's time for graphics.
I suppose I need 2D GIF's of every piece type on both white and black for it all? What components should I use on a JFrame, or just simply paste an 8x8 grid of Image bitmaps on a Graphics G context?

Is there a good zip or anything available? I couldn't see one. Google or Github linking.

I don't see a zip file with all of them.

Must I right click and Save-As them all?
Make a script that downloads the SVG files or JPG renderings.
