After many years, I recently started doing sprites again. I’m slowly learning to do games in GameMaker, and being able to do sprites should be useful. Even if they’re just placeholders for the time being.
So, here’s one attempt at making a player character. It’s just a rough form, no shading or proper colours yet, but I think it’s a decent start.
Any tips or criticism would be helpful, especially when I actually get around to coloring and shading, since that’s what I have most problems with.
Additional question: what program should I use? The current version of MS Paint is really frustrating, with weird issues. Scaling images 2x seems to be impossible without distoring the image, for example. (Using ctrl & +)
