So I've been in a bit of a rut due to my inability to spend money in order to gain Expert Sprites for my game. So I've decided to make my own Sprites. Unfortunately I do not know what Sites or Applications to use. I would be ever so happy if Someone could give me a couple ideas on what to use to make my sprites.

Graphics Gale Free Edition or Gimp for Free.

Maybe stick to the Inbuild Char Generator or combine it with One of the above and just Edit them a little bit.
I realy like that MV standard Graphics style, maybe you too?

I do but its difficult to make sprites like the Irongiant or the dragon for my monsters that waltz around the maps.

I use photoshop... not the best software for pixel art but definitely easier for me to use since I've been using it since the beginning. Gimp is good too, as many people have said.

I use Blender and GIMP for sprites.

Know that there will be (stiff) learning curves.

I thought I should give you an idea since you're new. You can get free 3d models, edit them in blender, metasequoia and other 3d softwares or even mmd (oh how I love mmd) and render them as pngs which you can edit later or use as reference. I've done this before but it was too time consuming. I switched to taking pixel doll bases as reference to make my own bases.

Please give your topics a meaningful title, one which gives an indication of the type of query you have. Queries such as "Help plz!" or "I have a problem" or "Newcomer, & I'm stuck" does not provide enough information. It's quite possible that people will just skip by it in the New Posts/New Threads thinking that's what it is. It also means that if anyone in the future has the same sort of query, they will be unable to find this and (hopefully) the solution.

I've moved this to Useful Development Tools.



I used GIMP for the longest time, it's good (though opening it might be a bit daunting at first). I've also used Aseprite, which is great for animating sprites. It's not free though.

I use Paint.net for pixel stuff. Its free and works nicely, and zooming in will show a pixel grid.

Ugh. Some days you're the car... and some days you're the road.
Highly opinionated world-building mapping
Working on an audio engine plugin for MZ! Check this out with your sound on (preferably stereo sound too). Multiple BGM and BGS channels and spatial audio (volume and panning)!
Got the menu problem sorted out, now most of the systems are in place and I can focus on the plot and the maps!
Im really Happy that the MZ Hero looks like a Boy than a Man.
