Since it seems you haven't worked with sprites before I recomend going to The Spriters Resource and looking through there, or Sprites Inc. Do not try to create full sprites on your first try. Get the hand of how they blend to the next by editing sprite. Then work up to creating brand new.

It took me months to put together a sheet for the one depicted in my avatar. Spriting isn't a quick thing. Creating new sprites means performing art on a pixel by pixel level.

MSPaint is actually pretty good for spriting. Just whateer you do, do NOT save it as a GIF in Paint. It screws up the colours.

Although other programs like Photoshop have advantages, such as being able to make sprites in layers and going back more than three steps.

I cannot fathom why you would use Paint for anything. It is technically possible to sprite in it, much as it is technically possible to reproduce the Mona Lisa in it, but it's so woefully underpowered as to be infuriatingly useless. Even the saving is pathetic. Use GIMP or Paint.NET.

GIMP with its animation add-on, etc.
GIMP can save as animated GIFs without the animation add-on. Perhaps not the prettiest of solutions, but it does work if all you need is to string frames together.

I DO use Pain for my sprites. Why? Because all you need is a pencil tool that covers ONE PIXEL. Pain is perfect BECAUSE it's underpowered. When I'm working on sprites I'll do so for a very long time. I mean over a day of working. Having larger programs means there is a higher chance of them crashing due to the system resources being used.

That sprite of mine you see, I made in Paint. All it's other sprites made in Paint. Up above it was said Sprite is under-rated... well so is Paint.

having layers can be useful.

To be honest I can understand how layers can help with spriting, along with a LONG undo list when you don't copy and paste every change :p
I've just forced myself to make do with Paint for so long from when I didn't have photoshop that I know the advantages of it... and disadvantages.
