Learning how to create sprites

Not sure where to put this, sorry if I put it in the wrong spot.

Anyway I’m looking for a spot or a web page that tells me how to create sprites, either just for art or for gaming, or web comics. I’ve goggled until my brain nearly exploded. so what i’m saying is FRICKEN HELLLPPPPPPP!!!

Can someone point me into the right place? Pretty Please?, Thanks to those who can help.

I’m more interested in learning what makes a Melonball Bounce?

That would be an interesting thing to see
