I'm currently reading Josiah's Sprite Comic guide, so I don't really need most basic help. What I'm trying to do right now, however, is to use some recycled sprites just like Josiah and Saber use for their avatars and play around with it however I want. (Torchic on Brendan's head, for example.)

Here's my first try at something. Metalheadz is the Spongebob avatar, (which I edited him holding a guitar and colored his eyes to look like he's wearing sunglasses) while he has some Megaman sprites (ripping goes to their respective owners of "Titanium Rhapsody") and they're playing on the beach. What I need help with is just your opinion, I know this could be improved and it's nowhere near perfect, so I just want to know how I can make it better.

Here's another one with Metalheadz and his favorite pokemon, meganium.

It'll be the last one for today until somebody has something to say about the Spongebob sprites and the backgrounds.

Hmm...none to bad...but, I do want to point out that the white parts on Meganium...are see-through. (you can see the grass/plants behind them) I would suggest doing something about that.

I love the fact that you added Forte/Bass and Dr. Light/Right in your band. (I am quite a big Forte/Bass Fan :blush: )

Hmmm...I would also advise you to do something about the distorsion in the Metalheadz+Meganiun picture.

Other then that, I must say, You do have potential...you know...as in the cababilitly of development....not as in Potential energy...heh heh....(I do get those mixed up sometimes)

Thanks for the help, Poison!

I think one of the problems with Meganium is that its feet are white, and I forgot to color it in with some white paint.

The trick with white is to go to custom colors and make a custom color that is ever-so-slightly not pure white. No one can tell, and it won't go transparent when you move it.

Also, make sure you only resize by intervals of 100% (200%, 300%, etc.) or else you'll get distortion. The shorthand for resizing is ctrl + w... I don't even know how to find it otherwise.

Personally, I think they're great. One tip, though; when resizing something, don't click on the corner of the selection box and TRY to make it, say, 200% its size. Simply enter the size increase in the Resize and Skew thing (only resize, not skew... makes your selection , for lack of a better term, diagonalize.). This is assuming you ARE using Paint.

Yep, I'm using Paint. Thanks Saber, I'll keep that in mind.

Here's the last little short I'll make before I begin taking it to the big leagues. It's only a little strip of Metalheadz inflating himself while Bakura (he's not gay, he's just British!) thinks he's about to explode.

What the?! O.O That is good, though. VERY, VERY good. One thing, though. You might want to resize the body so it's back to normal. Doesn't Spongebob's body stay the same size whenever he inflates like that?

Actually, the inflating Spongebob is an actual sprite. The only edit I made were the sunglasses.

Well, I made this out of sheer boredom. I'm not asking for help on this, but feel free to view!
