Spriting
« on: March 10, 2010, 10:16:43 am »

This is where I'm running into a real block with my game; any attempt I make to create sprites for the characters turns out extremely poorly. I'm not much of an artist, but I feel like I should be able to design a character who takes up less than 200 pixels...does anyone have any tips?

I'm going to try bumping this just in case someone missed it. Surely SOMEONE in here has tried making their own sprites?

I've made a lot of my own sprites. I'm not much of an artist though.

I have a tip!

Try making 8-bit style sprites. 20x20, 16x16, 32x16 etc... it's a lot easier to see what works and what doesn't when you're working with a lot fewer raw pixels. There may or may not be carry over to higher resolutions or color depths.

Here is a guy with a thing:
