Making animations from sprite sets

Hi everyone,

I got a request for a tutorial on making a kick animation.

I recommend finding a suitable Community Commons licensed sprite set on the web, incorporating it into Gamemaker using the instructions below, then perhaps…. if you have time, re-touching the artwork in the sprite set to make it look the way you want your character to look.

Kicking and punching is pretty similar to the walking stuff…. after you get through the 4 direction walking animation, ask me about connecting keyboard presses to kick animations, and how you might handle collisions.

Good luck,

Bob

Why use spritesheets? Reducing memory and start-up time; increasing your games performance

Creating spritesheet animations – beyond the scope of this post.

Some people use Pyxel edit pro; Sean Spalding uses Flash
