I actually don't like MS Paint or GraphicsGale because I don't find them to be ergonomic enough. I use Paint Tool SAI. Not the first program that comes to mind for spriting, since it's not the focus, but it has a binary tool and a transparency option for erasing as necessary. I'll often start off zoomed in at 200-300% with the ink brush to build up forms where I see them, and then outline everything important with the binary. The other amazing option with the program is that you can select "preserve layer opacity", which makes it so you can only change the color of something in the area you drew it. This makes rendering the outline of the character in different colors a breeze so long as the outline is on a different layer than the colors underneath it, of course.

tl;dr- I use Paint Tool SAI and it has options that make spriting easier for me compared to other programs.

I know you guys wish I would post something more "complete" than what you see here, but I find CPS3 to be a little tricky after blocking in highlights to make the figures look downlit, just with how colors change from the highlight to the shadow. My only real clues are that certain characters have a "pastel" look to them and that shadows are colorful. To be honest that's what would slow me down if I ever wanted to animate a sprite. Not drawing the character, but coloring it. No room for error with pixels..

I'm wondering how the word "ergonomic" can even apply to software, period.  ::)

Before this turns into one of those ridiculous software fights, all I'm saying is that SAI works best for me for spriting. I meant "ergonomic" to relate to the distance between what I wanted to do and how fast I wanted to do it compared to MS Paint, Photoshop, and GraphicsGale. The reasons stated being that there are certain steps that are easily handled with the tools SAI has, like coloring outlines or what was drawn on one layer, layers, etc.

First try in SF3 style spriting. Obviously not finished, but i don't know how to make the skirt and i don't have good colors for it. When finished, it would be awesome if i had the motivation to make a full sheet and use this as a base.
Suggestions and tips are welcome.

Is there any way we can see the sketch? I just wanna see how you shade it when attempting CPS3 style.
Try not to be of the 90%.
