    How do you draw sprites?

    How do you draw sprites? I need tips because whenever I draw one it comes out wierd. I know how to shade I did/do many recolors. I just want to know how to draw them.

    I'm sorry, but beyond the technical aspects like shading and stuff, there's really no magic tip. Just try to mimic the styles of other SRB2 sprites or something.

    So do you catch on in time or if you can't you can't?

    I really don't know how to sprite, as I've never done it from scratch before, but I've recolored plenty.

    Again, all I can suggest is to try and mimic other people's drawing styles that you like. If you can make the sprites look similar, you're on to something. When you get good at mimicking, try to create your own style.

    I know my try at spriting is VERY funny, since I'm a TOTAL n00b at SRB2 drawing!
    Here is my funny concept of Conker The Squirrel's head:

    Well, it takes a full amount of skill to make a character wad.
    Yes, you do catch it in time and as you continue, you'll get better.
