What you want to do is "Import" a graphics file into your game.

First, for a character (sprite), the file needs to be in this format

Open in new window


The size doesn't matter, but it must be 4x4 cells, and each cell has to be the same size.
The file should also NOT be a .jpg file. jpg
'optimizes' the image, so all of the background pixels will not be the exact same color. jpg also does not support transparency.
Use .png or .gif

Once you have the file, in RMXP select Tools --> Material Base (or F10, or the Materials icon)
Select Graphics/Characters on the left.
Select "Import" on the right
Navigate to your file & select it. Open
Now you should see a dialog with x1 x2 x4 at the top.
On the bottom are 2 sections "Transparent Color", and "Semi-transparent Color"
Select the background of your image with the left mouse button. If the sprite has shadows. (usually below & right of the character & a gray color), select that color with the right mouse button.
Click OK, and you're done.
The new character will have an orange ball in the list. RTP resources have blue balls.

If you don't see the dialog with the x1 x2 x4, that means the image you imported already has transparency. It will import immediately. If the transparency was done correctly, then you can use it.

Which site? I'll go look. As long as the sprite is in the right format, it should Import with no problem & be usable.

Try it! if it doesn't work we'll figure out why.

Be Well

Loose leaf is in Japanese, but it's easy enough to use. If you want to read the text, then click here. You can't actually make sprites in the English version. It's easy to use, anyways. Just click on the brown box beneath the sprites, and select different features. To save them, you need to right click on the image, and then select 'save image as' or whatever your browser equivalent is.

If you want RMVX sprites, try Famitsu. That's the female version. Here is the male version. To use, you just have to click on the tabs, and then click on the person with the hair/outfit/whatever you want. When you want to save the sprite, click the button below it.

I haven't seen a sprite maker for xp that has more options then loose leaf. There is also Chara Maker Xp... but that is really hard to find. Most the download links don't work anymore. Also, it's mostly recolors anyway. You could try making sprites yourself if you want more options. Or look through resources and see what they have...

What type of sprites are you looking for? Fantasy? Modern? Teens? Adults? Kids?

This is not simple. To get start you can simply try to recolor the base ones. So you can take confidency with hairs, colours, shadows, lights and more. And then with a base (a nude charset) you can try try try try try and try again and again. Maybe you can make a new level for all things (clothes parts, hairs etc.) so you can delete things that you don't like.

Here's one on framing a character from scratch...
http://www.hbgames.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=73667

I'd suggest looking at all the rmxp/vx support sites, many of them have tutorials. Also try Youtube. Then Google "How to draw sprites"
Check out pixeljoint.com. looks like they have a nice tutorials section.

Definitely study sprites that you like. Blow them up x10 and look at each pixel. Look at how shading creates a 3D look.
Study bad ones too, to compare the differences.

Have fun learning.

Just do a google search for "rpg maker sprite tutorial". You'll find many sites and videos that can help.
