View Full Version : [Request] Sprites and Level Design

07-13-2009, 04:22 PM
If anyone is interested in creating some sprites and levels for a 2D platform game, please let me know. I currently have a project under way that is in serious need of consistent artistic style.

As always... :rolleyes:

Hey, 'Tainer... you've been awefully quiet lately. Thanks, but I dont think anyone's interested. I'll have to take some time away from code and produce some scrawls to use as placeholders.

Lol. I think we're kind of short-handed when it comes to artists here.

I have created sprites by hand in the past (as well as 3d rendered ones), but it's a very time-consuming process...

You spend hours upon hours fiddling with individual pixels. XD.

But if you want to have a go at it, and can draw normal pictures, a good starting point is graph paper.

Draw a picture on graph paper, then fill in the squares and you have a good beginning of a sprite. (as long as you keep in mind your intended size that is.)

A single pixel can make a big difference in a sprite, though this depends on how large it is.
Nes era sprites were often 8 by 8 pixels...

A typical character (such as mario or link or the final fantasy characters) on the SNes were 16 by 24 pixels, taking the largest frames... XD
(then again, the screen resolution used was round about 320 by 200)

Try removing a few water marks! Thats always fun ;)

Id LOVE to find an artist who can work on all my projects - art is something im terrible (and i mean TERRIBLE) at.. WE NEED ARTISTS :)

BTW - its a bit rubbish, but I found a program called 2d sprite creator - it basically allows you to "build" a sprite from pre-drawn parts, and then it creates a tilemap for you based on that initial design (so like, left, right, jump, run etc.) - not AMAZING quality but easily sufficient as placeholders :)

I use SpriteWorks from Envy Games.


It supports most standard models, but the added bonus is that it supports Torque DTS models and natively works for Torque Game Builder.

They have a tool for Fonts as well ... very good. :)

Exactly. And time is a hard commodity for me to come by these days. :(
