Spriter's School!

Recommended Posts

Welcome! This is Spriter's school! We teach you how to sprite! Here are the different steps we teach you, you may skip some, or only take one, just be sure to post in the thread, and if you decide to go from bottom to top, then you could become an Artiste! biggrin.gif

 

What is it, you ask? Why, its a series of "lessons" that teach you how to sprite. It begins with Recoloring and Splicing, and it moves to spriting from a sketch, to scratching tiny things and basic shading, then shading and full spriting. Each lesson is taught by a different teacher and there are separate rooms for everything. It is recommended you bookmark all of the rooms you need.

 

Draggemo Is the principle, and Miggy is the Headmaster and our wonderful founder! And they will be recording what you do, and The principle will hand out report cards wink.gif

 

NOTE

The trophies you gain after each lesson are still under construction.

 

Recoloring/Splicing Room

Taught By: Emerald ShadowClaw

 

Spriting From Sketches Room

Taught By: Miggyrox789

 

Scratch Spriting and Introduction to Shading

Taught By: Rabbit153

 

Complex Shading and Spritelines

Taught By: Miggyrox789 (Substitute for now)

 

At the very end of all of the lessons, you are prompted to graduate from the Spriters Academy. To truly graduate, you must create something from every category, sometimes multiple things from the category. These are the things you will have to do on your Final Exam:

 

~Recolor a Pokemon Sprite

~Splice 2 Pokemon

~Spriteline a Sketch

~Scratch Spriteline something small.

~Basic Shade something.

~Create a Complex Scratch Sprite line.

~Shade the Spritline with Texture.

 

NOTE: The exam will vary for each person, because you don't have to take all the classes, it will only be on the classes you took

 

You have one month to finish them. After that, you must present them to me, and we will grade them. If there are any areas you seem to lack, you will have to go back and continue learning that lesson until you can do it well. If you pass, you can become a full fledged Artiste. smile.gif

 

Or, there is a Spriter School Chat located here where you can meet any of the teachers or other students for normal chat or chat related to the School. Just about anything. Here is the chat smile.gifThe School Chat Please do NOT sign in with a name like "Someone" Or "Anon" or "Guest" Or one of the teachers will kick you. Thanks!

 

Hope you enroll, and if you do, good luck!

 

Here is the entry form!

I'm interested but I need to ask a question first. If you skip lessons will you still have to do everything on the graduation exam? I honestly do not like recoloring and splicing, especially if what I'm recoloring or splicing isn't mine. Can I just take the lessons I need and only do the graduation requirements related to those lessons?

You are not required to take the exams of classes you do not take. :3

How often can you be online?: I'm usually on every day from 11PM to 1AM EST time.

Which classes do you want to take? Scratch Spriting and Introduction to Shading and everything afterwards.

 

I tried scratch spriting once and it wasn't exactly great. >__> Shading may also be a tad hard to get across to me because I don't really understand saturation and desaturation and such. I think in terms of a light/dark and brightness/darkness. >__> I'll do my best! /prepares

 

I live in Mountain Time in the USA, but I commonly convert to EST time because that's DC time.

I would love to try and sprite, I've been thinking about to try it some day... But I don't know if I've the right program to do it in (my photoshop isn't too good to paint small things in...). What program is best to use when you sprite...?

And I think won't be able to take any lessons where someone teaches me, at least not now... ): Maybe after Christmas when I've vacation and no school to worry about. Right now I've too much to do in school since it is close to christmas now.

Well, I myself use MSPaint but there are a ton more different types of programs! smile.gif Search your computer! If you have a windows you will automatically have Paint, but if you have a Mac then you won't.

 

Also, actually I don't know what time zone you are in... but most of us are nocturnal, and we stay up to 12 EST time... so if thats the reason you don't want to sign up you can think again wink.gif

I'm pretty sure one of the teachers teach sprite layers. The teacher uses GIMP, so you might need it too.
