Natural Born Spriters... I envy you.

Posted February 26th, 2011 at 02:02 PM by Vampire://Krimm

What kills me the most is trying to sprite.

It's like the most essential thing to anything Pokemon and yet my sprite attempts are all very, very sad. xD

I ENVY NATURAL BORN SPRITERS. I'm going to try that method of scanning a picture and then tracing over it though. Can't I just use a solid brush in Photoshop on a large canvas and then scale it down to the appropriate sprite size? I may have to try this.

I've been wanting to but I'm lazy =3= Tips, suggestions, anyone?

    The thing is, scanning pictures might be a better option, but instead of tracing with a brush, you integrate yourself with the pixels. I used to sprite and I have some management in graphics, so yes.

    And maybe a monitor with a large pixel pitch would be useful. Also dither more than trying to antialias colors.

    I see, I see. I suppose lining with pure pixels is just something that takes practice. For me that's the worst part of it all xD

    And thanks for the tips, I'll give 'em a go.
