What program do you sprite with?

Discussion of tools and resources for game developers

Post » Mon Nov 16, 2015 5:59 am

As the title reads i want to know what you guys use to draw, sprite, animate whatever you guys call it when you design characters and stuff. Anyways, i am currently using Krita and i am really enjoying it, Krita is a very good software that i find can customize my set up for my artistic needs.

You might also look at gimp. It is free.
I made a few there after I figured it out and I am a very slow learner.

Are free versions of ArtRage and Spriter enough to make fine game art or do I have to buy full version?

They are , of course, limited compared to the full versions. Being able to make artwork is more down to the artist rather than the tools used.Why not try the free versions and see if they are any good to your workflow ?

Photoline, with a hint of InkScape (Photoline allows for round-tripping with InkScape, which is awesome). Also Blender and Spriter. For specific pixel work I use Pro Motion 6.5

I really like Pyxeledit for tilesheets. I still use Photoshop for some pixel stuff, and I also use a few programs on my iPad air that are actually really good for making simple animations while sitting on the couch.
