Tutorial: Scratching Sprites on Paint.NET 

Message par gotMLK7 » Mer Août 17, 2011 6:26 am

I realized my old crossover tutorial was outdated and, well, suckish. So here's a new tutorial for my method of scratching sprites on Paint.NET!

Lol, when I scratch, the method I use is nothing like this. :P

May I ask something? Is there any reason this has to use Paint.NET? This exact same method could be used with MSPaint.

Still, nice tutorial.

Thanks. :)
I put it as "Paint.NET" because you can make a layer for the reference and a layer for the sprite itself.

That doesn't really seem necessary to me. :? Could you not just have two copies of the sprite and retrace it in one layer?

Ah, well, this is all besides the point. Maybe I should make a tutorial for how I scratch...

For the sake of seeing if I could actually do it, I tried it in GIMP, this is the end result.

Coincidentally enough, this is how bot zimthetim and I sprite (but I use gump and he uses mspaint), except you do the face much more differently (and much better) than I do! Thanks for tips on that :)

Is it Damon Gant?

No, that's a stupid guess. It'd never be HIM.

For a first attempt (I assume), it isn't bad. It can definitely use some work, though. The lines and shading can use some cleaning up, for one, but the head seems to be the major issue. I think the biggest problem with that, however, is the fact that Damon Gant has brobably the hardest base head out of all of the AA characters. That beard is HORRIBLE to get around. So my major suggestion is to try to use a differnt reference for at least the head.

Also, quick note, when making a sprite, ALWAYS start from the head down on the outline. Even when you use a reference, it is always easier to start from the head. I speak from experience here.

Pretty good for a first attempt, but heh... using a size reference =/= tracing over the sprite, is it? :XD:

...Also, the base is Gant although everyone with the tiniest of brains could have seen that....

I gave it a shot and failed so badly. :P

Guess making sprites isn't my thing. Hehe.

Oh well, here it is. :D Enjoy having your eyes burn.
