You need image editing software. Windows computers come packaged with Paint, or at least I think they still do. There are better options out there, but you have to pay for some of them. Personally, I don't do anything too fancy, so Paint works just fine for me. When you save an image, the type of file you choose to save it as does matter. Some will change lower the quality of your picture for the sake of keeping the file a small size. Since every pixel matters when it comes to sprites, I recommend using a higher quality option, such as PNG.

This is gonna be a long one, but anyway here goes.First you are gonna need a program.

Free-
Paint
Paint.net
Pyxel edit
Gimp
Graphics Gale
Idraw

Paid:-
Aseprite ( Totally worth it )
Photoshop

Pick whichever you choose I recommend either pyxel edit, paint.net or aseprite.

Secondly,choose a style for sprites. LOG, LSW, SSW2, SB or whatever you want. Then start doing basic changes like change the color of goku's GI or vegeta's armor.After a week, try swapping the armors by copy paste like copying vegeta's armor and placing it in goku. Then after practicing it try to make that armor yourself by not cutting pasting. Then after much more practicing try making a whole spritesheet and then keep practicing and practicing. Eventually you are gonna be better in it. Always remember you have to be better than yourself not us.

Thirdly, try the basics of shading and anti-aliasing.
Search online for tutorials. Keep practicing them as well.

Fourthly, try making what is already done like I made an android 18 in beach outfit. Try making that.

Fifthly, always take sprinting as a hobby and not as a stress or a job. Think of it as a kind of mental relaxation. Don't jump at conclusions. Eventually you will get better. And after you make some sprites post some here, so we can also see how much you have improved.

That's it for me I guess, I am kinda sleepy now, going to sleep. :yawn: :yawn:

For the sake of convenience I am gonna post a URL of a tutorial.
https://opengameart.org/content/les-for ... art-course
It has an excellent series of tutorials for new beginners and old master.

Interesting. lol

I haven't made a lot of progress in my sprites yet. Wanted to wait until I'd gotten some significant work done, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to show this.

Image

I updated Kanassa's character Dashade's sprites. I darkened Dashade's Emerald Form, and I shaved off part of his right horn after Kanassa pointed out that it was supposed to be broken due to his backstory. I've also done a little bit of work on Pikruel's sprites, but I'm struggling with getting her crazy hair to look good from a side angle.
