Hi,  :D
I would like to make a thread here to announce my weekly tutorials in my site. For now, I'm only making game art tutorials. Most tutorials are made using adobe illustrator, But inkscape users could also follow. I'm planning to convert my tutorials to other softwares soon.

Here's the tutorial list:

Tutorial 01 | HUD – Player Life

Tutorial 02 | Pickup Items – Coins


Tutorial 03 | Monsters – Slime

Tutorial 04 | GUI – Next/Back Buttons


Tell me if you have suggestions
I'm also accepting Game art tutorial request.

Nice tutorials there, but...
If you aim your tutorials at people that just start doing their own graphics (as in people with no drawing experience) I would suggest using inkscape primarily, as not everyone can afford illustrator. I had problems drawing HUD elements, especially the sound and music buttons, so you could do something related to that if you ever have a chance. :)
Looking forward to more tutorials !!!

Thanks for your suggestions, I will convert those tutorials when I got time.
I could do HUD tutorials again next week.

Also make sure you don't repeat what's on this site: http://2dgameartforprogrammers.blogspot.de/  as people will probably look there first.

Nice one, PixelWalkr.... Keep them coming... and I don't mind if they overlap things I have covered on my blog... It happens... and I have to admit, I don't check if there is something like it out on the web already. If I feel like writing a tutorial, I just do it... :) ... and thanks for the mention, SadiQ. After some time offline I am back writing tutorials. You might want to check out the new ones at 2Dgameartforprogrammers.

Love your art style, I'd love if you could describe how you make backgrounds, how you add shadows to hills without making them look like s*it, and how to make a couple of trees.
There are so many programs out there than trying to get you to make it in the programs I use would be a waste of time, so some pro hints at using different methods would be the most useful help, thanks!
Rax.

A useful thing to do would be to upload the images you make to the forge. That way people can use them for quick prototypes without first drawing them, and you'd also get a little (or maybe a lot of)  promotion. Just my 2 cents :)
What's the next tutorial about?
