    This is probably one of the major reasons why every programmer has tons of w.i.p. games on his hard drive, never gone be released. Thx for your usefull links ! =)

    Thanks, I will keep that in mind when I make my own games. I am a horrible modeler/drawer.

    Never really considered this as an issue. I’m an artist with minimal PhotoShop skills but I like you wololo, just had a baby and my time is on that now. I sent you my hbl drawing while back ago with the original version un worked on so someone could do something better with it for you. I mainly do writing in a style. I posted on talk forums under the contest one of my pictures I did. Alien 2012. Wish I had time to offer help for you but I didn’t realize this was an issue beforehand. I even drew out a tattoo design for a friend which he had done.

      jlo138, exactly, I think artists don’t consider this an issue because it’s “natural” to them, just like most devs don’t understand why a designer can’t code a simple “hello world”. I envy the teams of indie games who are lucky to have enough devs AND artists 🙂

      • jlo138 says:

        Lol, I couldn’t code a simple hello world. Maybe post a thread or video on yt so that maybe you could get some designers. Have them send you a sample and possibly let forum members decide who could help. Not sure what your looking for but in time I could draw out “Wagic” since my specialty is writing but could leave it to you for someone else to photoshop. Here’s the type of writing I do. http://www.megapix.com/?p=UB9PCKUM. If you like that style I could do something for ya but I would need plenty of time since my life blessing has arrived.

    Thanks alot! I am very bad at sprites and stuff, this will help out!
    Only need to find a intresting game idea for the Android market..

    Nice to see our art piece as an example… it was actually one of the first works ever made for is, by a guy called “unrealsmoker” on deviant. 🙂

    Great artice btw. I agree that opengameart is the place to be at… 😛 It has a good lead as well and is under heavy dev, so it will be better still.

    Did this for you Wololo. I wanted to give back and my specialty is writing. I posted this in the forums. Anyone can use this. Just post it in the forums so we can all see. I’m not good with photoshop so I left it in an easy to use state. It says “WAGiC” just like that. I mix caps and lowercase to make the letters flow. Tell me what you think. 100% created by me.

    For high-quality game graphics I would recommend https://mobilegamegraphics.com. This game assets store provides game developer with free game graphics, pixel art, theme, backgrounds, and much more.

    Funny to read as I’m in the opposite situation, being a (junior) gameart dev lacking time to improve my coding skills cuz I need to focus on improving my 2D & 3D skills for the industry.
    Any suggestions on where I could find devs and how to judge how good and reliable they are ?
    Seems like more difficult to judge than art from my own perspective. Are there any good ‘devs portfolio’ network you could suggest me ?
    Any tips from your experience @wololo ? The same kind of article but targeting devs resources would be awesome 🙂

    (btw I’m aware of facilities offered by UE4 and Unity, already worked with those, but scripting remains time consuming, I’d rather feel like delegating those tasks to someone who likes playing around with code)
