I have these two frames made in aseprite, and I was wondering how I should go about putting him in-game or if it's even possible to have him have a bit of an idle animation. His current purpose is to stand behind a fruit stand, so he'd be staying in that one position. Is there some sort of template I should pop the frames onto or is it impossible?

RMMV
When you create an event, one of the check boxes in the lower left is Stepping - mousing over that option describes it as "turns on the animation when the character is not moving."

So make a spritesheet with those pictures in the appropriate places for the downwards-facing walking motion, and turn on Stepping.

Thank you so much!! I was so worried I wouldn't be able to do it!

Reworking the art for the 'special busts' in important game dialogue. Potentially replacing the more 'dead-on' look of the original:

Just got back from work... I got to recommend a dish I liked to a group of senior ladies, and they said they'd order it for dessert! What was it? CHURROS! It's one of my favorite desserts at my workplace.
What's your favorite dessert? I'll eat any pastry with cinnamon and sugar, but especially churros. And then there's chocolate... omg, so good!
