Desktop Ponies Tutorial by Botchan-MLP Desktop Ponies Tutorial by Botchan-MLP
Since I get repeatedly asked about how I make pony sprites, I created this simple step-by-step tutorial for making a basic trotting sprite.

This is the first time I made a tutorial and I may not be very good at explaining things, but I still hope that you will find this useful.

Edit: The forum which contains the templates (as mentioned in this tutorial) is currently down. Please try this link instead: dl.dropbox.com/u/35213087/Temp…

*facedesk* GIMP is not working out for me, the color selection pretty much turns all my blues into browns if they're too dark or too bright, i can't even recolor a sprite, let alone make a model for it, if anyone here could help me with wrestling GIMP, it would be appreciated ;~;

I'm pretty sure I had the same problem at first. Try clicking "image" and scrolling over "mode". If it's set to "indexed", change it to "RGB" and that should fix it. :)

Is there another GIF animator that you suggest?

I think you can also create animated gifs with Gimp, but I have no experience there.
