Sprite Editing Tutorials (VIDEOS) - Tutorials 1 thru 2 finished

This thread will be dedicated to links for my upcoming sprite editing tutorials. I decided to record these since it's not as time consuming as trying to type everything and take screenshots of what I am talking about. I highly suggest subscribing to my YouTube channel, as I will include videos of my creations for Mortal Kombat Project (mostly arenas).

TUTORIAL 1 - Tools of the Trade: https://youtu.be/pMdI7p6lmEs

TUTORIAL 2 - Franken-spriting: https://youtu.be/gYbFSjowV0c

TUTORIAL 3 - Simple Backgrounds: stay tuned

TUTORIAL 4 - The Resize Method: stay tuned
...

.
TUTORIAL N - TBD

Sorry for how crude it is; it's the first time I ever recorded myself doing this and talking to a "non-existent" audience.
I am just getting used to this whole video recording and editing software. Go ahead, make fun of my geeky voice. I'm prepared and can take it.
I plan on creating another tutorial tomorrow (March) 1st on how to "Franken-sprite" a simple fake.
Once I figure out how to "time lapse" hours and hours of editing, I may show advanced stuff... The problem is, as a 33 year old husband and father, I get interrupted FREQUENTLY. I cannot find 30 minutes straight of free time, so it will be very hard to piece together weeks of editing here and there and make it into a coherent video.
If people seem to like this videos and I get positive feedback, I am more likely to continue with this series. If not, I'll just go back to my MUGEN projects. Oh, and as an insensitive, you will get a sneak peak at a new fake in the video!

haha nicely done. I like the at times snide commentary - makes it interesting. You should do more and make this thread a fake making repository for newcomers and vets alike. Definitely would like to see your tutorial on more complex edits. Maybe this could even be combined with the FPK sticky somehow.

Glad you liked it...

Ugh this second tutorial was a disaster. The final video would be my THIRD time doing the sprite edit. The first was the best, but I forgot to record through my microphone. The second time around my kids kept bugging me... so by the time I did it the third time, I was impatient and rushed through it. The video is over an hour long and is taking forever to export. I can only imagine how long it will take to get it on YouTube. Whenever it's all done I will update the OP with the link.

The complex edits are going to be tricky to do. As I mentioned, it will likely be a time lapse video, where it's slowed down only in certain areas where I want to highlight some hints/advice.... the fact I can't sit down for 6 hours without interruption will make it an impossible task.
