RPG sprite swordsman by tiny-mint RPG sprite swordsman by tiny-mint
*January edition*

Hope you guys can see this ok.

One of my new year resolutions was to study and learn about pixel art (sprites).
This is a small practice to get me going.
I'm gonna aim to post up at least one pixel art every month.

I'm also working on a small RPG game project so this will be good practice for that cause were using sprites, just like the good old days ^^.

I appreciate any tips you guys can give me or point out anything i could improve on.


please do not take without asking

I love this, great silhouette, fresh colors and a nice bouncy action. If I were to find something to nitpick, the fact that he raises the sword with his arms instead it mostly reacting to the movements of the body makes the sword seem a bit light contrary to the other action, as with a more heavy object you'd be using the whole body to move it.

I love the movement and proportions :) May I ask what programs you used to draw the pixel and then animate it?
tiny-mint Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2013  Student
sorry for the late reply, I just used the animation tool in photoshop and exported it as a gif file.
hope that helps^^

feel free to ask me anything else

No problem! Thanks for getting back to me :) Did you also use Photoshop to draw the pixel before you animated it? I'm interested in making my own and so far I've tried using SAI, GIMP, and MS Paint but am not a fan of any one of those in particular.

yep used photoshop for everything here just made a really small canvas and the pen tool.
I dont think those programs have a animation tool.
but yea alot easier on photoshop and there are programs specifically made for sprites.

hope this helps ^^
