I have a tablet aswell, but i can't seem to get used to it :P Probably cos i'm a lousy drawer anyway, any tutorials on anything? or just some tips :/ I need to get used to outlining pixelarts, that's my weak spot :)

Well normally when i look at the tablet doesn't look as good and the lines aren't joined up or anything so i recommend to look at the screen. Also i recommend to make the opacity of the pencil a bit lighter and sketch roughly (it doesnt matter how many lines you draw) then i make a new layer and go over it with the pen tool (i use illustrator or photoshop. Illustrators good for vectors that don't get pixelated.) Im not sure about pixel art.

If anything i'd probably do a rough sketch then pixel over :P
Normally i look at the screen too :D i suppose it just takes a bit of getting used to :)

Great Marcum!
I´m glad to see that you moved on from our project. Try to look up Blob´s Spriting Everything videos on Youtube, and paint the same things as him, as you watch the videos (don´t just make exact copies of his drawings, but use the same techniques as him). Also, try to make vector art, I use Inkscape.

i use heavily inkscape for art.
It takes a while to get used but results are very pro like.

Aha, love silux's art...
The red one, top right, the gradient looks wrong, a ship doesn't have it's shadows like that, makes it look like a cardboard cut out. Love the blue ones though
