I believe you have made a beautiful image of a steampunk griffin. I would like to know more about that.

Thank you, that'll be really helpful.. Say, would Paint.NET work for this? :?

I am not sure, I´ve never used Paint.NET myself.As it seems to be mainly a photo editing software from what I have seen I´d say it should be possible but is not ideal for spriting. Personally I prefer the free edition of Graphics Gale for spriting.

Alrighty! Paint.NET is actually really decent, but I've heard Gimpshop's a lot better... I'll check it out, but the free version won't let you save GIFs... ;(

I know, to circumvent that I just take a screenshot of my sprite when I am done and paste it to a programm that allows me to remove the background and save it as a gif :D

When I first started spriting, everything I knew was from this tutorial ^^ you actually were the reason I started spriting... I saw your awesome sprites and I was like "I wanna be able to make those!" so I started practicing and I'm slowly getting there :)

definitely not as easy as it looks. I wish I still had paint so I could actually do this.

Graphics Gale is in fact a lot more comfortable to use than Paint and it is free to download so you could still try (if you can download and install things on the computer you use of course) :)

I can, just that most things aren't comparable with a Mac....

Nice! I look forward to trying some sprites in GraphicsGale and using your steps!
