How to frankensprite with Gimp.

1. make spritesheet of what you are editing with extra room to frankensprite
2. click "image", click "mode", click "indexed"
3. choose 256 color
4. use the select by color tool (ctrl+O) to pick the background color
5. delete background color (ctrl+X)
6. use a select tool (rectangle,elipse,free select, etc tool) to seperate your sprites into the pieces
7. use the eraser tool to clean the edges
8. use a select tool to copy pieces and paste on top of each other


**if you make a mistake "CTRL+Z" is to revert last action, really useful**

If I have time this weekend, i'll try and do up some screenshots in gimp for this. I hope this helps it is the process I used for hulk here to animate his stance out of 1 sprite.

Finished animated:

for shadman and those who cant afford photoshop or a higher end art program,go google "macromedia fireworks 8" and download it, then pm me and i wil give you my personal serial number to it. Just dont ever register your product. I hope this will help those of you like me who dont know how to use gimp,and refuse to pay outrages prices for ps when itll just be outdated in five months.lol and its like an advanced version of ms paint with alot more features and plugins(no .pcx) sorry,but its easy to learn how to use.i do all my spriting on it then convert to .pcx with infranview wich is free so dl that aswell.

i think sagats lean forward boxers stance is wrong for terry personally, if u look at him in his movies hes laid back swagger stance,id lean the body back like in a walking backwards frame but keep the regular stance legs and place his arms like hes getting ready to reach out and choke some one kind of ,hard to explain,sorry,lol
