How would I easily create a custom character? Like, actually create one, not how to access and edit the sprite sheet, but actually create it. Because, drawing each and every frame individually doesn't sound appealing.

How else would you expect to create one?

At least potentially, You could use a 3D model instead. I don't actually know if the original art was 3D or not.

Well, you'd think that you'd have a sprite and edit it for each frame somehow.

Urza idea is best. Using 3D models to generate sprites truly help reducing effort.

The 3D modeler Blender has a line renderer built in (called "Freestyle").

Therefore, it's possible for Blender to make sprites in the style of the player characters out of 3D models if you program a line rendering algorithm for Freestyle and a shader for the materials.
