See what you can do...

Here are some notes to kick start the process. Once you have worked out what can be done then the limit is your own imagination.

Stage 1 - Making the sprite

This is the view of Piskel that you will get, the advert will depend on the websites own choice.

Click on "Create Sprite"

The grey area in the middle is where you create the animation, one pixel at a time.

On the left hand side there are some tools similar to those in paint. There is a yellow box, if you click on it you can duplicate the current frame so that you can edit it to be the next frame.

Here rate the keyboard short-cuts if you wish to use them.

Editing the palate of colours is very similar to programs such as paint.

See what you can do, you might get something like this:

 

saVING YOUR WORK...

iT IS VERY LIKELY THAT YOU WILL NOT COMPLETE YOUR ARTWORK IN A SINGLE LESSON AND WILL WANT TO FINISH IT LATER. tHIS IS HOW YOU SAVE AND LOAD A PROJECT.

Stage 2 - Saving the sprite

If you want to save the Piskel then look at the right hand side of the screen for the save icon.

Save the graphic as a "Piskel" file. This will be downloaded to your "Download" folder

In the same way you can upload a Piskel file.

Please note that a Piskel file will not load in any other software
