How to make sprites (for absolute beginners)

Postby P N Y » Wed Sep 30, 2009 10:49 am

Ok this is for people who don't know how to make sprites.
I apologise if there's already a guide for this.

1. save some pokemon on to your computer.
to do this, go to a pokemon sprite website ( like pokemonelite2000 for example, then right-click the pics you want, then click "save Image as.." and on the red box below, mke it all files or BMP
Image

2. select the pokemon you want and open them on MSpaint. I selected doduo and magnemite for the tutorial.
Image

3. put the sprites together on one file. I recommend you save it as something else at this point
Image

4. next split the pokemon up with the tools in red, if you need to make the file bigger that's fine. I would save again here.
Image

5. delete the part's that you don't want and put together everything else.
Image

you can even recolour as an extra option.
Image

You have now made your sprite

6. Save,then select you're pokemon(using the tools on step 4) and put it on the upper left corner.Then click Edit -> Attributes and type in on both boxes 80. the white bit (I'll call it paper) should get smaller.
if your sprite is too big, doesn't matter just click undo and make the size to your fitting (you can also do that byclicking on a tiny blue square on the bottom-right of the paperand move it).

Now save and exit MSpaint

7. open up your sprite in a program like photoshop or something ( I use a program called PhotoFiltre)
click "save as" and make sure that the line under the name is PNG (as on the picture below.)
Image

It is now ready to upload to the Internet.

that concludes my tutorial :D

Questions or comments?

Very nice guide but I am really bad at cutting out the shapes so can't really do it properly... my hands always shake and i muck up :(
Do you just need really good hands to do it? I only can do the square cut out lol

wow nice tut dude. but i'd rather tell u to use a sprite sheet rather then save individual pokemon on a computer. there are many sprite sheets. based on different poses from different games. u can look them up on deviantart or google. if u use google then try to search them on the web and not on the image search since u will usually find low quality pics there. anyways i already have a sprite sheet with me

and btw i wanna continue this faq. can i?
