take other things people have drawn (like sprites) and use them in games i wanna make. I wanna try to make my own designs. Is there any place where a person can download or make things like their own custom sprites with zero talent for the brush? I could ask people to draw some for me, but I don't got the cash to pay people and asking for freebies just gets you digital shit. They might as well just gave me a sukamon pic.

Well, bud, looks like you gotta either get some money, or settle for what others are willing to provide for free.


Thanks aplenty to Phobotech for the great user icon.

You never get satisfied until you can make your own. Before being a butterfly, a caterpillar must do the whole process, even it is so damn long and bitter. "Patience pays", said the Devil's Garage.

I suggest you go to the Collaboration forum with a clear plan of what you want to do. Be ready to explain the game and show people that its worth getting into. If you have other abilities then I am sure you will find artists who can't make games!

Also, if you can draw at all with pencil and paper, then as well as scanning in things, as has been suggested to you, you can also get a graphics tablet. I am told they are not too expensive these days and people say they make a big difference.

Well, I used to be really bad at art, to, but now that I read the book "Drawing on the left side of the brain," I can draw pretty detailed pictures of nearly anything. It's not a very pricey book, and can help you be a better drawer in only a month. That's how long it took me, anyways. Heres a link to the book:

I made the main character of your game. His name is Scottsdale Rouge and he is a native american warrior with a dark past.
