There has been quite a bit of interest in a night dedicated to learning the ancient art of spriting. So here it is!
The "class" will be loosely taught by Jesse (creator of Wyv and Keep and SmashBox) and will feature the basic presentation of a topic relating to spriting followed by time to work and check out each others' sprites. We'll cover topics such as shape and form, shading, anti-aliasing, lighting, key frames, forces of movement, secondary animations, and much more. It will be a casual gathering as with most CiGDA meetings, and will focus on helping each other and learning together in a relaxed, stress-free setting.
Our first meeting will focus on getting acquainted with the spriting process, distinguishing a good sprite from a bad one, and creating a character for a simple platform game.
Novices and pros and everyone in between are welcome! Can't wait to see you all!
