I needed an easy way for me to design background layouts, so I just made my own.
It's not much, but it gets the job done.

One part of my say it's not making sense from how can it be disrespectful since it only shows big appreciations for the graphs that's used by the fans, like it's just a graph paper, not a video game that cost money. While other part of me say it's understandable in Japanese cultures, like what if I was a Japanese and react to this? So I understand sadly...

At least I should be happy for a reply for this. But the one where JakeSpencer mentioned: I am a kind of perfectionist OCD-styles where I go crazy over not making the correct designs of how the graphs and the size should be. I tried making a graph paper on certain parts, and it sadly looks too small for me to have fun in any kind, like it feels more suited to be used in Krita, but I wanted to draw it in real life! So, yeah... It stinks being perfectionist.
Here's my sheet I made about 12/27/16. It's really unfinished, as I am trying to make a "more autism-friendly" graph for people who struggles a LOT, but it's very similar to Nintendo Entertainment System graph sheets.

I am highly not recommend to use it because it's still unfinished to design, and the design would need more works to make it printer-friendly. But if you want to, go ahead, go ahead. Expect some printing errors of perfection design.

Just recently I'd finished a companion to my background planner. This one for designing the individual sprite and BG tiles.
