sprite creator
« on: October 25, 2020, 09:54:50 AM »
I started work on a little tool to make it easier for me to make my sprites but then I thought it was a pretty good tool that others might find useful so I've been expanding it to be even more useful and easier to use.

Three suggestions:
- the eyes in the "big set2 are a bit off when comparing "side view" and "front view" - side view has a bigger distance to "nose/front" than the eye to eye in the front  view ... this looks ... alien
- think about adding "masks". Imagine you want to overlay a "zombie eat away my hips" effect -> sprites must be able to "remove" something from the layers below. lost legs, arms ... heads ... :)
- add "tinting" (create "gray layer objects" and tint them to your likes)

Oooh some good suggestions I will get working on some of those as soon as I have finished with frame manipulation(you can take an individual frame and delete, move it up a layer down a layer, stretch it ect)

Ok so I have added quite a few new features(I also repositioned the eyes as suggested)
I now have a recoloring program that can swap the colors in a sheet, Copy and paste tools, frame deletion, frame moving, layer merging, and area selection and delete. I still need to make a lot more sheets but its coming along quite well.
Here are a couple of characters I made for testing purposes
