I’m trying to learn more about pixel animations, which could help to build some basic sprites for a small game that could happen sometime later in my life. Currently i’m trying to reproduce some of the tutorials from saint11, which can be found here.
Here are two animations i created with spriter:
The tool i used here is aseprite
And here’s how i’d start with drawing these: I’d use primitive shapes like a filled ellipse/circle and draw some highlights with a contour tool (lasso which fills the selected region). For the next frames i will reduce sections using the lasso or eraser and also move subsections using the lasso tool.
