I would like to make personal sprites and objects. Which program would I do this on? I'm kinda broke right now, so I would like a free program. I have a windows. So I have MS Paint. If that is a program. Please explain who I could use them too. Thank you!

I use GIMP or Paint.net. Both free and I've had no problems with them so far :)

I've moved this thread to Program and Utility Discussion. Please be sure to post your threads in the correct forum next time. Thank you.

Pyxel Edit has an older version that's free.  It's buggy and doesn't support animation but it's still incredibly useful for making pixel tiles.  If you can get together the very low asking price, the paid version is much, much better.  Much less buggy, has animation, and is being updated on a regular basis.  For a free sprite program Graphics Gale is good.

So a big bug that was on a glue trap at home is now magically not on the glue trap. This feeling of terror I'm experiencing could be a fun thing to put in my game project (not the IGMC one).
Hoping that Unite has a character generator with black hairs/lips and other features.. it is such a pain making characters without these...
