shading, how do you think I should go about soft shading pixels? or just go for a normal cel type shading?
Line art...black outline or soft look?
any links for good tutorials?
i know how to use a sprite to make a sick sig, but thats it. sorry man.
Ha ha, pixel art... Woo, I'm not going down that road again... Mr_T has some experience too.
