Program for making Sprites?

Discussion of tools and resources for game developers

Post » Wed Dec 09, 2015 4:18 pm

We all know it's really hard to FIND an exact Sprite for your games. So what is the best program to create your own sprites :?:

For high resolution sprites there are plenty of options, such as Photoshop, GIMP, and Paint.net. These work for pixel art as well, but aren't ideal.

If you're going down that road, my experience is less limited tools wise -- I personally use GIMP, because I'm too lazy to learn anything else -- though Piskel is pretty good, with good animation tools and support for layers and such.

Inkscape is also good if you want to make some nice, clean vector art -- of course, you'll have to export it to raster files for use in C2, but the idea is that you can export large images which scale well.

You might also this a look at pixtel and clip studio paint. I am using both.
There is a section on here about education and resources. The first entry is one with lots of tutorials and also his list of software.
Hope this helps.
