I am trying to rip some sprites from a DOS game and the background has similar colors as the actual character which is making it a headache to rip properly. Is there a way to disable background and layers with DOSBOX?

No, you can't, unless the game includes such features.

If not, then the only way you can do it is through tools like CheatEngine or ArtMoney, and try to find the corresponding cheat or code that may disable the BG layer or recolor it.

Or, extract the sprites via external hack tools or sprite extractors, but these are game-specific
