Hi! I saw your sprites on dragon cave and found you here, I must say you are very talented! I can't wait to see the different dragon sprites you make, they are very beautiful.
Hey, uhm...
I noticed you've got updated Silver sprites - is there any chance someone (probably you?) is going to make an update Silver egg sprite? 
I've found that for three or four years now I'm still stuck with the question while in the AP - "Is that a white or a silver?"
Hey thanks for the fav ! I'm glad you like my work ! :happybounce: 
I do!  I think I will have to try that color gradient technique on a future project!
What program do you use to make your sprites?
I use Photoshop CS2, but the beauty of spriting is that you don't really need a fancy program.  You just need a pencil tool and a 1 pixel eraser with no anti-aliasing, so even MSPaint is good enough.  Many of my sprites were made in old fashioned MSPaint.  The only thing I couldn't do was transparency, but there are sites that will do that for you.

I've heard good things about GraphicsGale and GIMP, but I have not personally used either of them.
