Using GIMP to draw animated sprites?
My girlfriend and I are looking to create a computer game. I'm doing the programming and she's doing drawings for the graphics.

I want to help her set up a good and effective work flow. She has already used GIMP for a few drawings projects, but never for animation. Is GIMP the right tool for this job, or are there software that's better suited (Linux)? If GIMP is well suited, I'll gratefully take any and all suggestions, tips and hints for working effectively with creating animation in GIMP. Typically the goal will be to create animated movements of 2D characters and objects of ~= 100x100 px size, or at least in that ballpark.

RE: Using GIMP to draw animated sprites?
Beyond the standard stuff, look into the Gimp Animation Package which is a collection of useful plugins for those doing animations. Since you are a programmer, you'll find that writing a few scripts can save your girlfriend a lot of work. It is quite easy to write rather evolved scripts for Gimp, using either Scheme or Python (on Linux, you have both by default).
