I was asked how I set up the sprites so here's a quick explanation: The 1x sprite is a smart object scaled down from a 2x version made with vector shapes. The scaled smart object then has a light sharpen filter applied to make sure things are crisp. Works really well most of the time, although occasionally there's some minor pixels that need touching up.

I assumed you had to redraw the smaller version almost from scratch.
Yeah, this's realy useful trick. I always do the same way.
Love the Smart Obj, it gives +100 points to PS skills. :D
Loving that you shared this.
What Dan said. This is a fantastic tip.
Thanks for the tip! :D i'll find a way to do it on Fireworks ^^
1) Is it photoshop?
2) Is this feature CS5-only?
I've never seen that before...
Between you and Mantia, I have no reason to actively learn Photoshop ever again.
@Dustin, thanks alot!
You need to share more tips.
I love using this trick. Smart Objects are so underrated.
@Dustin Results definitely vary, but it seemed to work well in this instance with the character sprites. I doubt it'd work nearly as well for UI elements though. It also works well for @2x use since, in the end, it'll be the same physical size on the retina displays as the older displays. But, yes, smart objects are *amazing*, I love them so much :D
Your the man! =D
Wow, neat trick! Thanks for sharing David :)
Ha! I use the same technique.
Do you use regular sharpening or the smart sharpen? thanks for sharing!
I think it's just regular, but since it's on a smart object you can adjust it's percentage (which is great, b/c normal sharpen is usually waaay too harsh).
Great tip, works like a charm
