Ive just started getting into making sprites, and as a test ive made a sprite for Super 17's final attack in Gt. This is just a quick test to see what it would turn out like, so any advise would be great before i start the real thing. Note i had to use blue because you cant use black and i couldnt find a purple i liked, and that the real thing will have a lot more lighting animation, and a lot higher quality.

That is a good start, but it really needs much more lightening. Make the middle of the ball a lil lighter blue...

with the lighting, on the final one im going to use a maximum size sprite, but keep that image the same size (64, 64), but have the huge lighting that was in the episode (like 8-10x bigger then the ball) and have a better version of that lightning just for the middle.

*edit* just made it more readable.....

yeah, and in game thats huge. The only thing is, in game swapping it for a final flash, it doesnt look in te middle of vegeta, its slightly to the side, even though the sprite images are definetly in the middle.

Off topic: Anyone looking for a site to upload models/sigs/pics or anything, try Freeservers.com.

*edit* i meant just the blue ball 64,64

I think is as huge as frieza's deadball, but see you don't make the sprite too big, otherwise it goes thrue the models hands, and that's kinda unreallistic...

The Dark One: I meant it to look something like this (but not as rubbish lightning as this)


and to make sprites, look at the sticky above, thats where i learned. (plus id been making animated images for ages anyway)

Something like that, but then more like this [fastly draw in paint so don't bother the rubbish lightening...], but the ball only needs to be a lil bigger...

It was just an example for solidus so he would see what he should make..., I just added more electicy on it in paint [did it in five mins]. But venguard what textures do you mean?? The lightening around the ball or the lightening that goes away from the ball??

Thanks everybody

Do you mean the inner blue ball (that the dark one said to turn lighter blue?). There all good ideas, and im gonna use every piece of help that i get ;D . And i like your draw over, i think im gonna use something like that, but one line at a time (so that in the animation, the lightning strikes one at a time if you know what i mean). And i dont think that the ball neads to be any bigger, in game at full power its too big allready. Thanks everyone for your help, and keep it coming! im listening to everyone, nomatter what you know or who you are, or how long youve been on the forums, keep it coming!

*edit* with the lightning a meant one patch at a time rather than line (like about half of your draw over) then animated, then another patch, but im gonna use a massive loop rather than the 16 (?) pictures it uses at the moment, so that its gonna be a lot harder to see where is loops.

Off topic: Can you see all of my pics, or does one say link forbidden? cos there all from the same site, so thats just wierd.... and do any model makers nead any sprites making ;D just give me a message.

*edit* the easiest way to make gif animations is to put the pictures into flash, then export the movie as a gif animation. That way it also notices that there in a sequence, and puts them all in for you, instead of one at a time.

*yet another edit* damb! there all gone now, can anyone see them by right clicking, copying the address and putting it in a new window?
