Flash like sprite animation- Is it possible?

Hi :wink:
Like in title. How to make sprite animation? I searched all over the net and found nothing. Can you guide me how to start?

Thanks a lot for all answers

I dont exactly know what you mean by “flash like” sprite animation, but Blender can be used to create Spritesheets.

Just a quick search on Google

I mean like those:
sonic for hire - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfRXk_HnNqY
death battle - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9T5QzLD5koc (starts 11:58)

Ha! Yeah, I think thats why you’re not turning anything up in your searches; you not using the right terms.

Sorry, I mean animation using pixel art/ sprites. Like Sonic for hire or some of death battle. Is it still possible? How to achieve that?

Pretty sure there are other options also.

That type of 2d animation you’d be better off doing in 2d animation software. Easy to pull off in OpenToonz, for example. Or Synfig Studio.

Blender can be used for 2d animation as well, though. It’s very effective in this case:

Which uses the 2d Cutout tools addon:
