dont get discouraged.
one of my teachers always told me "success at anything always looks like hard work."
if you need help with anything there are people here in the guild that are far more experienced at spriting ( ink, balzahar , warner to name a few )
and most dudes are willing to help new people.
just simply ask. of course you have to put the time in and do some work but thats also why its so fun. you get to learn things.
just start small and get used to spriting single sprites first. then you can move on to entire sprite sheets!
ummm....ya ok and ur name was?....riiiight
