I have a tablet, but I think it might be broken... I hate when this happens... I'm planning to get a new one in the near future anyway. When my dad's job is secured... maybe... I don't have faith in my drawing abilities though, but I still need sprites for my trial... Curse this stupid brain of mine... Hopefully this tutorial will make it a little easier. Thanks.

Sometimes I wonder if I even know what the hell I'm doing...

Remember that if you doubt your skills you can always trace the pose from a photograph and just alter the looks. By the way, which tablet do you own (mine is Wacom Intuos3 A5)?

How do I get the URL so I can add my sprites to my game?

...And after all the effort I put to the Art Questions and Answers thread people still ask completely irrelevant questions in invidual guides... DD:

You know you're allowed to ask all you want in the Art Questions and Answers thread.

Here I answer to the questions that are related to the actual topic (= spriting in GIMP). Please post the other questions to the right topic, even if it is a bit new.

Did you use a tablet for the rough sketch? It looks like a drawing that was scanned.

That's because it IS a scanned drawing.

Singi uses both traditional and digital means to make sprites (and so do I, for what it's worth).

Same here. It just doesn't feel as... precise when I'm using anything other than a pencil. The only thing I can do with my computer is trace over lines and pixel-edit.

Drawing a neat sketch? Oh heck no. :XD:

So true. xD
Though (after some practice) I'm actually able to draw decent sketches with it, but it's still not the same as a good old-fashioned pencil sketch.
It's still a pretty handy tool though.

Funnily enough my tablet drawings are better than my pencil drawings.

…Then again, that really isn't saying much.

Ah, it's great to see I can create sprites so easily by drawing! :D Drawing is no problem for me, but I was wondering just how I could do custom sprites. This was very helpful. I use Paint Tool Sai for most of my stuff, but I think it should work fine.

Heh, pencil does allow more control and detail, but after I got used to the tablet, I couldn't live without the undo button anymore. :XD:
