Well I organize colors into lists. Example for hair there are 22 different choices for just Male. Now there are some of the basic colors. Aqua, black, blue, brown, light brown, red, wine that I noticed. But not every option has those colors so I add them. But other options have gold, green, purple, gray/silver, orange. It is much harder to work the math around jumbled numbers than to make 1-23 and all the same colors.
I expect to have to make roughly 2,000 additional images between male and female. Just by how the hair is. I haven't really looked at the colors for everything else. Depends how organized it is.
My previous sprite creator needed almost 1,000 images created. And it's total images are near the same. Just not as many options.
EDIT: Not going to sugar coat it. Editing the images may take a long time. I am just starting on Male, Hair. I have just for male: Facehair, hairop, acce1, acce2, acce3, expressions, eyes, wrists, arms, shoulder, armor, shirt, waist, legs, feet, weapon, mantle, options, bodycolor.
and then female lol who has their own totally different image set.
EDIT: Almost made it through the Hair for Male. Just need to add Green and Purple and I'll have 24 different hair options with 9 different colors for each.
