PART 1: how to making custom sprites!

Post by SugarBell on Tue Jul 27, 2010 7:24 pm

Ok! I will want to share my knowledge again! :) So here is how I will do my sprites! It is a bit easy if you try! I will used to be bad at it but it is not very hard!

So let's start! XD

This will be PART 1 because there is too much to explain for the entire spriting! XD In this tutorials we will go from this image:

To this one!


1. Your program?

Any program that will have a PENCIL TOOL will be ok! I think you will also wanting a program with an EYE DROP TOOL to pick up the color from the pallet will be ok also! For me, I will be using Photoshop! :)

2. Your base?

I will normally use Kaduki base which I find here:
http://www.rpgrevolution.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=23578

This base will apply to girls and boys both! I think it is very cute! IT will not matter however because all base are 32x32 space anyway! To make a normal base I will use Famitsu generation and do not put anything on top so it will be blank!
for males: http://www.famitsu.com/freegame/tool/chibi/index1.html
for females: http://www.famitsu.com/freegame/tool/chibi/index2.html

Just click the button under the image to save it blank! Remember where you put it! :)

3. Your pallet?

There is two pallet I will see here:
http://www.rpgmakervx.net/index.php?showtopic=502

But I will like this one better:

4. Begining!

Ok! We will now have everything to start! So now what will we sprite? For this tutorials I will make a sprite of this girl on the right!: https://2img.net/h/i833.photobucket.com/albums/zz254/KagamiTan/uscopy.jpg

I don't know who she is but she is cute! (They are both cute though! I will just pick the easy one to sprite! XD)

So here is my blank sprite! Remember this will be CUSTOM sprite! So do not put anything on your base! I will not use pieces from other sprite at all!
BLANK SPRITE
https://redcdn.net/ihimizer/img443/6/25839421.png

The first thing I do is change the mode! If it is on "Index" then your colors will not be right! So click on this to make sure your colors are correct!
CHANGE MODE
https://redcdn.net/ihimizer/img802/1663/26325170.png

Ok now we will really start! I open my pallet and select the darkest color I will use! I will like to start with the hair! I will not making ears or the hat yet! I will just need a base first!
OUTLINING
https://redcdn.net/ihimizer/img822/6875/23592019.png

5. Fill with color!

So I will not confuse the lines I make, I fill the lines with the MIDDLE COLOR. Every pallet will have 5 shades, so fill with the one in the middle!
FILLING
https://redcdn.net/ihimizer/img685/5383/71497878.png

6. Highlighting!

Now you will see it will still not look like the shape because I forgot the outside part! So I brought it more out to cover the ear! Next I will highlight! The picture has much lighter hair so I will make it mostly that color! Also know that the light comes from the top-left! So do not highlight much of the right side!
HIGHLIGHT
https://redcdn.net/ihimizer/img14/2478/48855351.png

7. Shading!

This part will be hard to explain! I will take the other colors and follow the natural shading! Also mind that the border should not all be dark! We will only use that as a guide!
I first will start with the 2nd light shade! Make sure to border the outside of the lighter color mostly!
SHADING 1
https://redcdn.net/ihimizer/img825/7059/18464360.png

Next I will take the color after the middle color! You will want to slowly get rid of your guide but not completely! The top of the sprite will need it, and the bottom parts that are meaning to be behind the sprite will need it!
Also I like to make that top part where your hair comes out from XD
SHADING 2
https://redcdn.net/ihimizer/img186/3680/27741344.png

Now it will not look so great right now, but look when you zoom out!
ZOOM OUT
https://redcdn.net/ihimizer/img811/8905/48053169.png

As you may noticing, the top looks a little too dark and the left side will look odd! So I will do this fixing by using mostly the middle color and second light color for fixing! Like this!
FIXING
https://redcdn.net/ihimizer/img844/9661/27471318.png

ZOOM OUT
https://redcdn.net/ihimizer/img12/3649/21474211.png

So I'm sorry if I jumped too much ahead and didn't explain it! XD I mostly got rid of most of the darkest color because it was too much for the light color I want her hair!

That will be all! Repeat this to the other sides and the next one I will do her clothes! :)

Tutorial-wise, I wish this was here when I first tried spriting. It's very helpful, and I mean it. Sure, there are some grammar mistakes, but I can understand the tutorial perfectly. I suggest that you put the image links in IMG tags, that way the images will show in the post itself. (Just select the link with your mouse and click the little picture icon above the edit field - presto! Smile )
