Sprites are animated pixel art characters who can be used within any of the levels created in SDK Spriter. They can contain 8 frames of animation for each of the 4 compass directions. Each frame is 64 pixels by 64 pixels. Sprites can be exported to your Photo Gallery of the SDK Spriter online gallery (iPad only). Sprites exported to the online gallery publicly display at 50% resolution, and the original artist can claim the art at its full resolution.



There are a variety of tools available for the creation of sprites:

Please consult the in-game manual for a full list of shortcut keys.


5 color palettes are available for drawing sprites: 2 based on classic video game consoles, 1 based on a classic video game handheld, 1 grayscale one, and the hue one from SDK Paint. These palettes can be swapped at any time. Additionally, use the dropper tools to select previously-used colors from the canvas. This may include colors not on the current palette.
