Godot Pixel Painter

This is a small pixel-art painter addon for use with the Godot engine. This actually makes it pretty powerful even though its just a sprite editor, e.g. you can work with Godots powerful cutout pipeline to edit bone-based animations directly, something you can’t even do with Spine.
