Is it normal that my tablet doesn't work in GIMP?

I... don't think so, as Singi uses a tablet while operating GIMP, too.

Q: Uh, hey, I have a question. How do you make the background of a transparent image blue, etc. so you can edit it if the background is black? I want to edit some HD sprites and I'm having problems with it...

No, my tablet definitely isn't working in GIMP...it works just fine in Sai, and I can click things with it in GIMP, I just can't draw anything. Does anybody know why this is happening? :/

The easiest way is to add a layer below the picture and paint it blue or any colour you want to use. If you don't know how to use layers or the program you're using doesn't have them you can always just fill the transparent areas with paint bucket.

Tablets do work in GIMP so it's a problem at your end. I can't help if it's a technical problem (other than maybe telling you to reinstall GIMP) but it might be that the tablet is working just fine and you just don't notice it. Have checked that you're using the right tool for drawing (usually pen or brush)? Have you looked at the tool's options? Try changing the transparency settings and brush size under the brush options. You also have to check the colour you're using so that you're not drawing white lines on a white background. You can also try adding a new layer to your picture and draw on that.

I have a silly question about animating with GIMP. =D

Q. What's the most efficient/effective way to make sure all your sprites are positioned exactly the same? Is there a setting that allows you only to see the outlines of all your layers?

There is something called a "guide." To access this, use the move tool (hotkey "M"). Click and hold from the rulers. Then drag down to the desired position. When you copy-paste sprites and move them around, it should snap to the guides.

o_o...

Get a profile image of any character, cover the entire block with the same gray colour, and place your headshot of your sprite on it.

All right, that's what I thought. I was just afraid there was some secretly more complicated matter to it.

Umm... for blinking, is it just open, half-open, and closed that I need to make?

Uh... yes? You only need 3 pictures if that's what you're asking.
Unless you want to make it look needlessly smooth, that is.
