I am wondering how to create my own pixel battlebacks similar to the Final Fantasy games such as VI.  I'd like to learn how to make the battlebacks of a cave, plains, ship and a forest.

I know I could use Photoshop or GIMP to do, preferably Photoshop imo as I am more familiar with it.

So, how do I start off easily?

Making a pixel battle back is tricky, there's not actually an easy way to do it. The best method is to act like you're painting a picture, just use hard edged pencil tools instead of soft brushes, then clean up and make things pixel perfect after you've got things generally right. You might want to look up indexed painting if you want something that works more like using soft brushes.

In related news, I may have an update for my old Extra status window plugin ready. That is, once I manage to sit down and update the documentation... and the demo project... :kaoswt:
