I love him! A group of friends and I got together last night to bounce around ideas for the game we've always wanted to make. Starting small is the plan but we're already dreaming big! I got online to look at "how to's" for sprite creation and found this guy. He. Is. Everything. I tried to recreate the base sprite in GameMaker and mostly failed, but we all fell in love with the design and I just wanted to say THANK YOU for inspiring a bunch of 30 y/o's dreaming about what might be.
I'll share his image here with you for a good lol. I
I know it's rough! But as my first ever sprite and as a guy who doesn't draw or paint at all, i'm real proud of him.
Going to download your professionally done version to mess around with. Thanks a lot again brother, for just doing what you do. If this project ever goes anywhere, i'll be sure to reach out again!
