In the coming weeks I will be posting tips and tutorials on creating all things game art oriented. I'll be covering topics such as; icons, 2D graphics, sprites, 2D animation, game logos, interface graphics, 3d modeling and much more relating to the game industry. I will be using 2 main applications to do this, Abobe Photoshop CS 2(version 7 and CS 2 will work for most) and Cinema 4DXL 9.5 with Bodypaint 2.5. Some of the other applications I may use will be; Abode Illustrator CS (maybe CS2, Adobe After Effects (6.5 or 7), Adobe Bridge and IconBuilder Pro.
My goal is not to show you how to paint or create art, but to show you how to use these tools to streamline your work and make your art look it's best. I will assume that you have at least a basic understanding of how to draw and/or paint. As such, I will also provide you with links to web resources and book recommendations related to the topic I am discussing. I will also do my best to provide you with low-cost alternatives for some programs and also freeware alternatives (quite a bit exists for 3D).
From time to time I will more or less go off topic and maybe post something for you to download. Like say, some desktop pictures or icons that are related to an upcoming or released product of ours. Overall, this part of the newsletter will be about having fun and learning some things along the way.
