NOTE: This guide is prefferably for Paint. I'm pretty sure it works with other things though!

First off, for animations like Fire Emblem, you'll need a sheet. A great source for FE sheets would be FE Planet, but we have some sheets in the database here.

Next, copy the sheet and open a document.

Paste the sheet

This is a Fire Emblem sheet of Cath to use as an example. Use it as a template for this guide.

Open another document. Copy and cut the first sprite from the sheet and paste it in your newly made document.

Then do the same with the second sprite. Zoom in on the first one before you paste the second one though. Make sure that their shadow's match in this case. (Trust me)

Repeat this process until you get to the sprite where it looks as if shes leaping or jumping.

This is where it gets tricky. Keep the same sprite and move it forward bit by bit. If you wanna speed up the proccess, make a sprite of her leaping and make the next one just nothing. Then make her far away from where she was before. This will make your character move like lightning. It's a great method and I'm a fan of it.

After you've done all of her moves and stuff, when she hops back, use the lightning method. Then when she's just standing, stop using it.

Keep pasting the sprites like you did previously and her cape will wave. When you're done with that, You're almost done.

All you have to do is get an animator such as UnFreeZ and animate it. UnFreeZ is a universal GIF animator and can be found here: www.whitsoftdev.com/unfreez/

You can also add cool things like lightning bolts and fireballs.

You can even add character's to make them battle!

Nin's Edit: Fixed up some minor punctuation errors, but otherwise, good tutorial! *Pinned*
