I have just recently started spriting and am doing much better than I thought by:
1. Starting small
- I started with 8x8 sprites and, by keeping it small, I could work on getting a simple pattern and shading implemented. I created a basic brick wall by starting with a slightly dark blue. I then put it in a pattern of pixels so that if I wrapped the sprite in any direciton, it wouldn't change the pattern. Then I chose a darker shade of the same color and filled in the spaces. After that, I kept my basic brick wall sprite as a backup and made a second one which I shaded by using white and black at 20 opacity. Then I just layered on black and white where shadows and reflections should be on the wall.
*I know it is short, but as this is a work in progress post, I will post other tips I find as I get better at spriting.*

Indie game dev, in highschool, trying to get a job in a small town and make some money off games. Any games I make for sale I'll sell on Indievania. Minecraft would be nice if my computer could run it...
