I'm gonna go ahead and say you should really learn how to sprite basic things before trying to make animations or games. -Really-
When it comes to art you have to learn things, you can't just jump in and start making projects and then have it come out good. There's a lot of basic concepts that you don't even know. You're going to have a lot of difficulty and it's not even going to come out right. If you want to learn how to sprite then you have to focus on improving, not getting productions right away. This whole thing is doomed to fail unless you up your skills first.
How was this a helpful post?
I know i'm not going to make the best things ever right from the start. I am trying to learn the basics of spriting. I learned how to make a standing sprite, so I figured the next step would be movement and if its not please correct me.
I have been learning game design for 2 months now and wanted to learn basic sprite information so I could put a school project together.
Now if you could post some basic tutorials or offer some kind of help to further my progress that would be great. but I chose the title of this thread so I wouldn't be attacked for asking basic questions in the "Questions, Info, and Tutorials" section.
StarSock is right. Even though you've made one sprite, it's not very good (this isn't a personal attack, I'm saying this truthfully.) You need to work on skills like understanding anatomy. Even though Brandman1996 is nice to you, he isn't giving criticism and won't help you make really good sprites.
And Brandman, if one actually followed "Cure for Cancer"'s crits instead of taking them personally, he or she could improve a lot! Remember that.
Aaaand I think this thread is past needing to be moved to Sprite Discussion or something.
