Default Sprite Guides and Tutorials II Project - [Post to help! | Updated 06/10/10]

Sprite Guides and Tutorials II

So, a fellow pe2k member, Disco, suggested we needed a more updated resource thread. Alrighty, lets have a little fun here. ^..^

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR;

Resources
- We, as sprite/pixel artists need places to be linked to read tutorials, or link to a site with tons of sprites! So, if you have ANY sites in mind, please link so. Linking to galleries is kinda a no-no, since we can't STEAL other people's work. That's just not right. =[
Tutorials
- OH YES. TUTORIALS. Why tuts? We need them because there could be new sprite artists in need of help to making better sprites.
How do you make a tutorial? Here's a great tutorial, on making tutorials!
When you link a tutorial or make a tutorial, you need to state the following;
  • Your username (well, duh, we need to know it's by you)
  • What is the tutorial teaching us? ; (Ex; Recolors? Overworlds? Maps?)
  • Do you have any results to following the tutorial?; [sprites here, post 2]
Of course, the tutorial you link MUST be made by you. Make sure you stated all the steps out on the tutorial, and try to make is so that anyone can follow it. ^..^

Video Recording Tutorials
- Oooohhh, these are interesting. Alrighty, do you want to make tutorials by screen recording yourself? I'll totally allow it, but here's some stuff you need to do/fill out/know/ect
  • Video recording must be by you.
  • Make it so the viewers can see what your doing in what program so that they can sprite just like how you're doing.
  • If you'll be using a mic to talk in the video, I encourage you to speak clearly and so that the audience can understand and hear you.
  • Tells us the program you used, ect and what your tutorial is focused on.
Does the tutorials HAVE to be on making ONLY Pokemon pixel art?
- No! This is a mixed sprite art board, so, if it's non-related to Pokemon, sure, post it. =]
Rules
  • Don't Spam, Flame, ect.
  • All pe2k rules apply.
  • Keep the language at PG, please.
  • PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE WATCH OUT FOR POSTED TUTORIALS. We don't want 7 tutorials on how to recolors. O..o;; Be original, go crazy, have fun, but try to make sure you're not reposting a style that has over 3 tuts.
  • We want sprite styles to have maybe LESS than 4 tutorials. Keep it to 2-3.
  • Don't steal.
  • Keep your resources and tutorials rated for a audience of kids, please.
  • Make sure you read the tutorial over, to avoid; Spelling errors, missing steps, ect.
  • We need to understand what you're talking about in the tutorial/video tutorial. Otherwise, I'm not adding it to our lists of tuorials.
  • THIS IS NOT A SHOWCASE. Please, to share your results, post at The General Spriter's Showcase
  • If you have questions on tutorials or resources, you may post them. Any questions relating to Sprite/Pixel art in general, please post at The Spriting Discussion and Question thread.
  • Do not request here, request for sprites at the Sprite Request thread.
  • Have fun~
Rules will be updated when needed to. =D

Now, you're gonna sign up to join and contribute tuts and recourses.

Resources (So far)

Anastasia's Suggestions;
  • Black/White Sprites - Pigman was kind enough to link us to Pokemon B/W sprite sheets. Make use of them!
  • The Spriter's Resource - It has many sprites for many Pokemon and non-Pokemon games! It also has a few tutorials.
  • RetroGameZone - Like The Spriter's Resource, it also has sprite. Not as much, but TSR, but it has some good sprite for less known games. It's one of TRS's affiliates.
  • Pokemon Sprite Generator - Need ideas for a new fusion? You should try out this cool generator then for some new ideas.
  • Pokemon Elite 2000 Sprites Page - Oh, yes, the pe2k sprite resource. You should also check that page for some sprites!
  • Sprite Database - Also another good places to find some sprites. It's one of TRS's affiliates.
  • MFGG - This resource is made more for sprites relating to Mario games. This is a non-Pokemon sprite resource. It's one of TRS's affiliates.
  • Trainer Overworld Sprite Base - Provided by Disco, these will serve as a base sprite for a trainer.
    Azumao's Sprite Resource Post - Read post to see what Azumao had in this post to share with us sprite artists!

Yo! 8D I think I'll join.

Name: GS/Suicune/Grace/Graceful_Suicune.
Experience of making pixel art: I've been spriting for three years now.
Favorite sprite styles: Um...don't really have one. Favourite types of spriting types/what you can do would be fusions, scratches and really intricate pixel art.
How much do you think you'll contribute to this project? Well, I've made a few tutorials in my day, so I'll be able to post some. ^^
Any last words? Nothing relevant. x3

I'll post some tuts soon!

W00T, thanks. ^w^

Here are two tutorials.

# Your username: Graceful_Suicune
# What is the tutorial teaching us? How to make las! But the actual spriting, not the animating part. Which you can just use Iaza.com for.
# Link to the tutorial: Clicky!
# Do you have any results to following the tutorial? Plenty. This is the first one I made: More recent one:

* What's this tutorial all about?: It's about making "la"s. They're icons on deviantART that have two frames and are animated. They look like they're singing!
* What Program is this for: Paint. As it says up the top of the tutorial. xD
* Difficulty level? Uhh...amateurs? Not really beginners...but maybe. x)
* Video Recording?: Nope!
* How many pages to this tutorial? Just one.
* Have any tips? Watch out for that random "what" between "match" and "the" which is in step 3. xD Obviously I changed the wording at one point and forgot to alter it to make sense. xD Also, you need to have the base to do las, which you can get here.

:D

Number two...

# Your username: Graceful_Suicune
# What is the tutorial teaching us? How to reshade.
# Link to the tutorial: Right here.
# Do you have any results to following the tutorial? Well, the quagsire on the tutorial itself. xD

* What's this tutorial all about?: It's about how to reshade a sprite (in the example I eliminated any shading (including the outlines) on the quagsire), and it mentions light sources and stuff.
* What Program is this for: Paint.
* Difficulty level? Maybe not beginners, since shading takes a while to get the hang of.
* Video Recording?: Nope!
* How many pages to this tutorial? Just one.
* Have any tips? Not really. xD Have fun?
