Trainer Spriting Tutorial - 1 by Litera-sure Trainer Spriting Tutorial - 1 by Litera-sure
So, since some people have been asking me about this, I decided to get my ass in gear and cook up a tutorial. So far, I've only got the girls part covered, but I intend on making a second part with advice on spriting boys. I hope you'll look forward to that :3

This part covers faces, expressions, hairstyles and shading. Anatomy, I assume, you'll already know a bit if you're attempting spriting from scratch (if you don't, you can still reference from poses on the internet, but it's probably safer if you have some basic knowledge of it already). I urge you to only try this when you're reasonably confident that you've got the skills to do it (thus, you might want to have some experience with spriting at first). Anyways, I hope this will be of help to you. Also I'd love feedback on how I might be able to make the second part better.

Thanks for reading!

DON'T STEAL ANYTHING DEPICTED IN THE TUTORIAL!!!

Please don't. I appreciate the sentiment, but I'd prefer it if you didn't.

Hmm, I don't know if I can give you much advice. The part where the sleeve meets the pants could use a darker outline, but that's about all I got. If I had a better monitor, I might've been able to see something else ^^;

The second part is a bit more indepth on spriting hair. Maybe that could help you?

Woah, I just had a deja-vu when I watched this tutorial :o
Well not so long time ago a great trainer spriter leaved DA. I thought his/her name was Korinku-blaster or something. Anyway he/she made a trainer tutorial too, and the girl had quite the same design as yours o_o

But nice job on the tutorial, the one of Korinku was deleted and I used it a lot, so I will with yours :)

Litera-sure Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2011
Uh... yeah, that's me :p

I was too lazy to think up a new design, so I just went with the old one (though I made some tiny changes here and there). If you remember the boy's design, I'm re-using his also.

I hope the tutorial will be of use to you :)

Using this now, so far impressive, but the hair section doesn't really explain how to sprite hair...

Right, sorry for speeding along. I'll be more indepth on those sections in the next part. Hope you can wait until then ^^;

No, I can't really help you out with that. Finding a pose is all up to you. Good luck :)
