#5057928 What software should I use for Sprite Design?

Posted by YodamanJer on 29 April 2013 - 06:14 PM

Also, and I say this a lot on these forums, but I think the main thing anyone doing any kind of 2D game art should invest in is a Wacom tablet. Their entry-level Bamboo line is very affordable.

Oh yeah, that's being saved up for right now. I definitely need one, because using the mouse is just ridiculously cumbersome!

I think for now I'll stay with GIMP, because with the modifications in that link Kryzon posted, I can have a great palette to work with, which makes it a LOT easier to switch between colors. However, I will check out Spriter, it looks pretty good!

Thanks for the info, everyone! :)

Oh, thanks for those links! That helps a lot. I think GIMP is probably my best bet for now. I really don't want to learn other software to make sprites. :P

#5057402 What software should I use for Sprite Design?

Hello all, 

It's been a while since I've been on GD.net. Glad to be back! 

Anyway, recently I've decided to pursue 2D game making and sprite design. I've found some decent software, and so far I've found GIMP to be ok with designing sprites, but the lack of proper palettes makes it rather difficult to use without having to open and close several windows repeatedly.

I've found some software called Pro Motion 6, which seems to be alright, but does anybody have any input and experience with any software you would recommend?

I've also tried GraphicsGale, and it seems quite capable, but it's sort of annoying to use. Any input would be greatly appreciated! smile.png


#4989486 What language is better to learn - C# vs. Java

Posted by YodamanJer on 12 October 2012 - 09:00 AM

Interesting reads there! I have played around with both languages a bit more and have found that C# just feels better for me. I really don't know why, it just does. Java is ok, and I can definitely see using it to develop Android apps. It's not as horrid of a language as people try to make it out to be.
