Where can I find free sprites and images?

Is there a repository of small images... for example a spacecraft in space or a Mario Bros jumping and running...

Thanks in advance!


Try OpenGameArt

Also a Google image search with the work "sprite sheet" in it is usually pretty useful.

    \$\begingroup\$ Or better yet don't. Use the source rectangle in the spritebatch.draw function to draw only a portion of an image. Uses less memory and renders faster that way. \$\endgroup\$ – ClassicThunder Nov 18 '11 at 7:18
  • \$\begingroup\$ +1 ClassicThunder's response. Splitting up the sprite sheet into discrete textures is an uncommon approach and will just make you juggle many texture objects in arrays. Not good. \$\endgroup\$ – ChrisC Nov 18 '11 at 21:26

Here is a comprehensive list of video game sprite websites and a few programs that help you draw or modify your own: http://gamemaking.indiangames.net/index_files/FreeSpritesforGames.htm http://www.videogamesprites.net/
