I think you would have gotten the same answer without the plz's... and mine would have been:

Draw the frames of all of the characters frames in your favourite picture editor, import them to AGS' sprite editor, and arrange the frames in the views, standing frames first in the 'default view', then the walking frames, and in a separate view put the talking frames, and in another put the idle anim frames, if you think you need them, and therefore draw them. Then in the character editor create a new char, or, if you are creating the player char, you might maybe modify Roger for that, and replace rogers walking view with your own.

And creating own character etc is explained in the tutorial parts 6 and 7 in the AGS manual... ;)

I used to make games but then I took an IRC in the knee.
