How to Make Sprites: Fusions, Recolor and etc...
(Text by coco, images and some text editions by Castrainer)

Lesson 1 -- Recoloring Sprites

Here are some tips to help you improve your recoloring. Today we'll turn a Skitty blue. I'll use MS Paint to edit my sprites. Notice that it has more than one shade of pink in its body to make it have a more even tone.
Now Ill zoom in and get a different Pokmon with nice shades of blue in it. I'll use Azurill.

Using the eyedropper tool, take the lightest shade of blue from Azurill and use it to fill in/replace the lightest shade of pink on Skitty like so!

----------------------------------------------------------------

Now do the same for the others, matching shades of blue and pink, until you have a pretty blue Skitty!




Lesson 2 -- Sprite Fusions

Okay, here it is, fusing! I'll also be using Microsoft Paint for this lesson. Today we will first mix a Pikachu with a Charizard, to make a Winged Pikachu!

Part One: Pokmon mixing.
First, get the Pikachu and Charizard and put them into MS Paint. Next, click on the zoom tool.

Now, click on the Freestyle select button (has a dotted star shape on it). CAREFULLY select Charizard's wings and move them to a nice empty space.

Next, select the wings again and place them on the sides of Pikachu's body and voila! a winged Pikachu! You can recolor Pikachu if you want.

This technique also works for ears, feet, and tails. Have fun fusing!
<-- Cameskalanshatork, hehe


Thanks for reading this Tutorial!
We all hope that soon ya will be a Professional Spriter!

AHEM! This is the Sprite Tutorial Thread, not a Trainer Card Request!
Go to the TCard forum and search for thread, but first, READ THE FAQ! o.O;;
