Does everyone create their own sprites and backgrounds? Or do you get the images from somewhere specific?

lots of free stuff here: including kenney assets which are good for props/testing, at least.

and, is a good source for free and paid-for assets.

those should get you started.

I regularly use AppGameKit Giant Asset Pack 1 and 2
Also, I'm always looking for Indie GFX Bundles on and on Steam
Sometimes I just search the web for free stuff
What I don't find, I create myself

Be aware of the license, even for the "free".

Some "free" open-source license require you to make your own software open-source too, some other just ask you for some credits and mentioning the license. And in some cases it's free for anything. has some licenses explained

So when you're planning to go live with things, make sure you know what art-work you got from what resource and what license it is.

Just to make sure you won't get into trouble in future.

i create all original textures sprites and models and use blender or paint for most of it. sometimes i cheat and use open source textures. no worries on copyrighted materials in a published game that way.
