How to get / make sprites for Scratch?

Fri Apr 09, 2021 2:15 pm

Greetings!

I have seen a number of items talking about Scratch on the Raspberry Pi, one of the most notable being the installer screen-shot showing a Scratch implementation of Space Invaders.

There are dozens of sprites. . . . Other games or whatevers have oodles of sprites.

When I start scratch, I get (AFAICR), ONE sprite - the cat.

Is there a way to download sprites? What is the method for making sprites, (assuming my artistic skills are abysmal to none)?

Thanks!

Also, assuming you are on Scratch 3, there is an option in the add sprites button in the sprites palette which lets you pick from a gallery. This is how it works with the web version; I'm assuming it's the same on desktop as it's an Electron app built on web technologies.

Thanks hugely!

This should help tremendously and I really appreciate it.
