Thanks for the insight on your excellent spriting, Gladiacloud.
However, there are a few questions popping up for me:
1.) Regarding your pictures, you basically work in the upmost layer, including the alignment cross / separation frames, etc.
Do you clean these out by hand, when happy with the result?
Wouldn't it be easier to use another layer for those & just set it to invisible when done?
Also, why paste these on in fragments, instead of drawing the proportion lines through the whole 3k pixels?
I never used GraphicsGale, so please excuse if this due to GG.
Gimp allows to draw a straight line by holding SHIFT, same goes for moving stuff. There SHIFT freezes one axis.
2.) I'm well aware that you went easy on us, but what's the fourth layer for (actually the third for you)?
Only things I could come up with was either some secret you didn't tell or if you want to place something behind the "main" object, like an arm or FX for example...
Maybe you use it to fix gaps you produce when moving parts of the sprite, without directly painting into the sprite?
You might have already figured... I sometimes fail counting... Sorry!
Thank you for this out of the sudden!
