Sat May 08, 8: Tue Jun 01, 1: Honestly, you should make more as this is a really good tutorial and one any pixel artist could find useful. Thu Jun 30, 4: I really love your tutorials, very well set out and easy to follow.

Can’t wait for the next one! Thu Jun 30, 7: Thu Jun 30, 9: Thanks ChinWizard, it’s been a while since I’ve done any more tutorials. I might try to make time to do more soon. Noise yeah this comes from myself having the same problem so I thought I’d share the process of ‘how to’ for others that have their main colours of use in a separate image.

I tend to blabber on a bit too much when it comes to all the things you’ve mentioned and I kinda wanted to keep this short and to the point.

Shite sorry I didn’t realise that there was more replies here I suppose grphicsgale would help if I posted my pixel work a bit more then possibly that leads people to be interested in how I do things. Cheers for the feedback everyone, it’s certainly been noted and I’ll see what I can do about getting grqphicsgale done. We are an independent, not-for-profit game making community. Page 1 of 1.

Graphics Gale tutorial HD (Getting use to the tools: Part – 1)

Holder Graphics Gale can be found here and the graphiccsgale thing it’s free. Introduction For all those spriters and members out there that would like to be a spriter, getting your custom palette sorted is something that will help you keep your style no tuttorial how many times you create something. This is something I’ve learned only recently how to do so I figured it’s best shared. It’ll not make you an instant spriter but it’ll help your learning curve.


What’s a Palette In simple terms a Palette is a collection of colours that you most use or rather all the colours you’ll ever use, so it’s something graphiicsgale you may not get right the first time but keep at it.

There’s a range of ways that you can use your Palette but we’ll start with what you get when you first start Graphics Gale.

Personally I found these colours to be far to bright and saturated. Create the image with the sizes shown and also make sure it’s set on 8bit Colours You should notice that your default Palette has changed, it shows only basic colours that you may find in paint.

This is your starting block of creating your very own Palette.

To alter the colours simply left click on a block within the Palette and alter the RGB values, don’t worry about having to go back and alter the colour tutrial on or if you notice you’ve made a mistake as the highlighted colour will change on the image aswel as the Palette.

Saving your Palette Yes it would be pointless in doing this if you couldn’t save it and use it again or work on filling in more blocks. So just under the Current Palette blocks and tutoorial the left of the Brush Style click the drop down button and select ‘Save Palette Create yourself some Types, say for example you’ve got alot of one colour variation on one Palette and you only use two tutoorial three on one image.

Save them separately and merge the Palettes together.

Grwphicsgale how to do that Once you’ve got your palettes of colour saved when you come to ‘Load Palette Extract to a Palette If you’ve already got an image with colours or less that you’d like to have a Palette made from it then this is also possible, the results may need tampering with but you’ll get what you’ve asked for. Now you should see by opening this image your Palette hasn’t changed, if you look at the top of the image you’ll see xx Now hopefully you should know what the first to sets of numbers are Horizontal and Vertical dimensions the last number 24 is the colour depth.


There your Palette would now contain only the colours used within the image.

Though it may be jumbled but Graphics Gale reads colours from the left to right, top to bottom so a little tip is to save that Palette and open up a new image like this But this time keep it to 24bit FullColor. Once opened you’ll then have to ‘Load Palette Then it’s a case of organising your new Palette onto this image in a 3×3 pixel block style till you’ve got it set up how you’d like it.

Tip for doing it this way, collect all the colours you have at the bottom of the image. Use the Rectangular Selection tool when you want to move one about, this way prevents you from forgetting to use a colour. Once done don’t forget to ‘Save Palette Hope this is useful to everyone here.
