Need help with a player sprite for a 2D game

on: January 11, 2014, 04:49:18 pm
I'm making a small 2D game in Java for a college assignment, I've got a lot set out, collisions, gravity etc. and up until now I've been using a white box to test it and its about time I got in an animated player, I know how to do the code, but I lack a sprite sheet I can use. After about an hour of playing around I've come to the realisation I cannot do graphics. Can anyone help me out by pointing me to a place where I could get a sprite sheet? or someone to make me one? It would be 32x64. It's a side-on game and the player is going to be running & standing still. Any help would be very appreciated.

well if you want something custom made, then move this post to the job request section.  Or if youre okay using ripped sprites spriters-resource.com has sprite sheets ripped from many old games that you could use though I cant think of any games off the top of my head that use 32x64 characters but Im sure you could find one if you look around, or you could upscale a smaller sprite.
