Spriting is art

Hey guys my name is redbleuman and I am semi new to this wiki.

I have stayed here so I might help koggeh with his mod, but it seems that it is normal for some spriters and I do not only talk about the spriters of koggeh, to not use a good pallet or use some kind of shading.

Spriting is hard it takes time and can not be done with the standard paint colors.

To show you a example of this I made some sprites all of difrent levels of spriting from bad to good, this wil help some of you guys who like to sprite to become better.

Terraria Wooden Sword

Lets start, Here we have the normal wooden sword wich we are going to resprite

Now lets start with something I see here a lot, No pallete and no own sprite and above all no good color shading.


This is a tripy sword which is often used by starters, that uses colors of paint. Please let me tell you something dont do this you might have some people that say that they like it but if you really want to sprite something good use atleast colors that fit, like this one.


There is still something bad with this it still uses colors of paint so you got to make a pallet, if you like to learn how to do this and many other things try to contact me on skype ( my name is redbleuman)

Now lets see how it looks with a pallet.


Here we have a toxic sword

I like this pallet so we keep it for now and focus on something else.

Creating new things to the sprite like this sword.


the guys who can do this are good starting spriters, but If I may give you a tip you did not use any shading in the new made parts.

It does not matter much for small sprite

s but it can still turn the tide like I did with this version of the sword using proper Shading.


It seems you did a great job now you could try to make your own sprite.

I did this too, however I am not happy with it yet but you might see what i try to tell here


So if you want to know more about spriting contact me on my skype Redbleuman.

Koggeh talked to me telling the megamouth I have seen was his sprite, I do not say thay are all that bad but I like to help him to

get better on anyone else who likes to either sprite for koggeh or make a own texture pack or literly anything else.

I dont see me as a good spriter but I like to help so if you think i am hurting you with this blog I am sorry.

And if Koggeh need a spriter or a scripter i would like to help

P.s here is your megamouth
