Aseprite (full name: Allegro Sprite Editor) is a lightweight application dedicated to making pixel-style animation. Its function is basically like similar software, such as brush, onion skin, animation frame editor, etc. Here, AppNee recommends 2D pixel/retro style game character designers to try it.
Of course, among the same type of pixel character/animation drawing tools, GraphicsGale is pretty good too. For Aseprite, you can just give it a try. In addition, its official website provides very comprehensive tutorials. So, in this post, AppNee won’t repeat that, this is not just because we are not professional enough.
