Making very small sprites in Deluxe Paint?


In most information I've read about creating games on the Amiga, they all mention creating small sprites, as low as 8x8.

Recently I have been researching SEUCK and their sprites are 24x24. In my testing, I have been completely unable to make an image that small in Dpaint.

Am I doing something wrong, or is this impossible with this program? I hear it was the industry standard at the time, so it would seem weird it wouldnt be able to make images that small, unless they typically drew sprite sheets using it all on one page.

i think you have to cut out a brush, save as a brush. will save as an iff image, which you can import elsewhere.
enable Coords in prefs menu.

As emufan, wrote, save a brush.

They typically drew sprites on a page, though. It's easier for the artist that way.

That's the way it was and still is done, yes. It's not just easier for the artist, but it's also easier to get all the sprites and tiles into a game when they're organized as sheets.
