269 | 30-Day iLearn/iCreate Challenge: Day 19

challenge-day19My wife asked me today about how to create animated sprites in Photoshop. I gave her some quick details of how to do it but I finally got some time later to do a little bit more research to see if things have changed since I last created sprites.

What is a game sprite?  Think of it as a game asset, a piece of pixel art. Animated sprites can convey an action from one frame to the next.  This could be something as simple as eye movement, walking, explosions, and much more.

As far as I can see, it looks like the process hasn’t changed much.  Rest assured, I’m sure there are other software apps out there to create sprites but my wife and I are pretty competent Photoshop users.
