How do I make a sprite?

So, how do you do it? I’m new at this sort of thing…

Well, it actually can be easy or hard, depending. Re-colors are easy. Customs (to beginers) are hard. I still have trouble with customs. So I think you should start with re-colors. BTW, I only have PSP7. If you want, I could send you a tutorial.

Any sort of tutorial would actually depend on what you want to do. Recolor. Edits. Pure customs. And personally, I do the majority of spriting using basic Paint Brush.

I can do recolorings and some modifications. I might try customs somday, but not right now.

I do all my recolorings with iDraw3. Seems to work fine if you can get the right pallete to work.

Modifications I use Paint for. Not too difficult, but none too easy either.

Recolors are extremly easy to do in MS Paint. All you do is copy the entire image, then use the eyedropper to select the color you want to change as the background color. The you delete the entire thing, paint the new color, then paste the image, making sure the transparent background selection is selected. Repeat.
