Many people rip sprite sheets from games and post them online, just search for "sprite sheets" or "game sprites". Enlarge the image in Photoshop or a similar program so you can see it easily... it's pretty straight-forward from there. Very Happy

Ok its pretty simple. not hard to figure out how the beads work, just arange and Iron (with greese paper between the beads and iron).

So your gonna want to find the sprite you wanna make. Use Sprite resorces all over the internet, also a good idea to save pictures as you go along, so you wont loose them later. Heres some links you could maby use.

when you have what you need, use a program which lets you zoom in to see each pixel as bit as you like, i use Adobe Photoshop.

Hope this help a bit. And if it helps, heres some images i took of how i do it. (i know i sent this before but i think it'll help)
