GraphicsGale Sprite Drawing Tool

Icon 3 Comments
This is a tool you hear lots of game hobbyist mention that helps you animate sprites. For a pixel-drawing application, almost any paint program will do, but this tool in particular helps you animate the sprites better. You can see the animation being played in realtime as you edit each frame allowing you to finish off and perfect the movement.

I do the first frame getting the colors the way I want in some other program, and then I open it with this tool to do the animation. It looks complicated to use but it really isn't, and the free version does all you would need it to. It lets you export the file in whatever kind of sprite sheet format you need (and imports frames from sprite sheets).

Here's some recent sheets I did for some game engine:

I'm not really all that great, but this tool makes it much easier. If you like making classic-style sprite games, you should pick up this tool.

So.. 1,995 yen is about what - $24.63? Do they update frequently or have patches?
