Today we are checking out the web based tool, the Universal LPC Sprite Sheet Character Generator, a free tool that enables you to quickly and easily create multi angle animated character sprite sheets. The LPC in the name stands for Liberated Pixel Cup a contest/organization on OpenGameArt for creating open source 2D pixel art in a consistent style. You can browse the entire content of LPC assets right here. The assets on LPC and generated by this tool are available under split open source licenses, the CC BY-SA 3.0 and GPLv3.
The Sprite Sheet Generator enables you to quickly compose characters by selecting a male or female base sprite, then customizing dozens of attributes and accessories, such as eyes, hair style, clothing and weapons. While the UI isn’t amazing, the process is remarkably straight forward, as shown in the following video.
