When I'm bored these days, I try to sprite something. It's working and I'm getting better, but I still have a long way to go. I'm very new at it, and I'm learning a lot just by trying it out! It's getting to be more and more fun as I go, too!
Anyway, here's some good things I've made in the last few days:
sad guy with sadder heart:
floating face, crying (it was a sad week, okay?):
and an ANIMATION!
Anyway, I know most of you guys can do far better than this, but these are my first "real" attempts at spriting and I would love some feedback and advice. I've found I can only draw small sprites right now; if I go too big, it turns into ugly blobby messy junk. I don't know if this is a common problem or if there is a recommended solution. Any advice in this department would be very appreciated.
The biggest size I think I can go at this point is the floating head's size, and even that has its flaws. I think my lack of skill comes out more in that sprite, but it's still good enough to post.
I understand these things take practice, and I've gotten far better with just the little bit of practice I've had.
