Default Okay...

Ok, I have a few questions regarding technical help about sprites, smilies, and art in mechanical(?) ways.

First, how do you rip sprites? I mean, where does sprite reapers from all over the world get the sprite and rip them? I am not talking about where I can get sprite sheets, but I am talking about creating my own sprite sheet.

And sorry master if I asked this twice already, or maybe trice. Forgive master.

Second, regarding smilies, is it okay to make my own smilies sprite? I created one already, and maybe I will send it to Master. It is Zetta getting angry smiley.
And I want some to contribute from others to send their disgaea sprites to me and animate them and turn them into smiley GIFs.

And also, I am creating my own signatures lately, and all of them are chaos wars related. (Goddamn it, I can't get over with their english voices for crying out loud.)
So what is the best program to crop, merge pictures, overlap them, etc.?
I am using Photoscape so far.

I also made a Marona scared sprite, or maybe it is not a scared Marona, nut Oh well.

Another thing, can we use other smilies from different games to use in this site? If so, I can also contribute my Tails Bored sprite.

From my limited knowledge of spriting, I'd say that they're probably ripped directly from game files (roms, ISOs, etc). It makes sense, but the main issue is opening the file itself to view the files and then finding the ones you want. It can be done, it just takes work.

Sprites are usually ripped directly from the files, but if there's any protections or whatnot about it, you may also be limited to having to carve out the sprites yourself by running the game through an emulator and taking screenshots, then editing the sprites out of the game yourself. I've used a few techniques myself, and I usually find that if I can't find a sprite resource for it, I usually don't need it. However, if I run into a sprite I absolutely want to have in something, I'll run the game to get the sprites I need.

Then I will have it the hard way then... ISOs are kinda big and will take time to transfer...
I need sprites from Disgaea... Damn. I will see what I can do. I think I will need answers to some questions. So please answer when I ask. Thanks, D and Akuhei.

If it's the first one or the second one, I highly recommend using the DS version or the PSP version. The files shouldn't be more than like 500 mb for the psp, 128 for DS.

Well, I need the cut-ins somehow too in higher detail... But hey, I haven't thought of that and try it out now.
