    That's simple. Open MSPaint, pick the pencil tool, and put a ton of dots everywhere.

    It's just like drawing, only more square.

    I try that. Never comes out right. Plus I don't have the patience.

    Practice makes perfect.
    If you have the patience to live past the age of 6, you have the patience to sprite.

    That's how I see it, anyway.

    Or you could use GIMP to make your life easier. It takes getting used to, but it's worth it.

    → If you're not patient enough, can't you just SAY how you imagine stuffs?

    I know Korby already said something like this, but I have to reiterate: practice. I used to be in the same boat you are, where it always came out terrible, but if you keep at it long enough you can make some cool stuff.

    Some advice; start with Mega Man sprites. Just download a Mega Man sprite sheet and mess with it. Make it look how you want, or make it look like other characters. He's such a simple, easy character to work with that he makes great practice.

    Alright, thanks guys. I suppose since I have enough time on my hands I can go and at least try. lol Mostly I want to make a character for something unrelated entirely to this fourm/game.

    This is a Metroid Fusion skin Mario Fan made that I don't think ever got finished until now:

    I changed the color of the death effects to match the fusion suit cause I'm lazy and this isn't my skin. Changed the portrait colors to fit the palette of the rest. Added the missing X parasites along the bottom. Very lazy edit, but at least now we can say a truly deserving skin got done.

    lol I didn't know that those bits on the right (the bigger ice beam) were explosions when I made that ^^'
    Also, the portrait is wrong. Imma try fix that...
    EDIT:
    Metroid Fusion uglyrodent version.png
    EDIT 2: Oh damn, the X should have replaced the vertical missile to the right... There are actually Missile Tanks in Fusion...

    I think the sheet looks great, but the power-ups are going to be really confusing. None of them give you any clue as to what they do. Perhaps the small icons should still be Varia, Morph Ball, Wave Beam, etc.

    TheomanZero Level 9: Spike Top

    Definitely . . . also, maybe you could cheat a bit by sticking little icons on the X Parasites?

    You'd have to be a fan to know the difference. XD lol But it looks awesome. I won't ask for the Diffusion Missiles or Ice Missiles though that would be cool. ;) lol

    I know this isn't really the right thread for this, but I'm working on a Metroid map skin, and I need knowledgeable Metroid fans to help with it. I have the WIP of it posted in the Map Skins thread. I already made themes for it in the Theme Skins thread as well if you want to take a look.

    Hunt down Ceed and shoot him a PM. As sprite work goes I can't speak for him as I haven't seen a whole lot, but he's a pretty big Metroid fan.

    Dark Samus was made for one platform. I suggest someone could make it for the other two consoles.

    This. Edited some things to match, but I need help with a lot of the items (all except the mushroom).

    You could take a small metroid enemy and have it pop out of the box instead of the poison mushroom

    Okay, let me see what I can do. :) Are you asking for suggestions though or sprites themselves?
