Nibre Posted May 31, 2013 Share Posted May 31, 2013 (edited) Ill get straight to the point. So, i would like to become a Graphic Designing or atleast keep it as a hobby. More likely, i would like to design characters for games, in the beginning 2d sketches and why not 3d models. So, my first question is, what do I have to learn first to become a decent graphic designer, how to start, and what should i focus on? I would atleast like to get on a level that i could do something like this, which i know must take years of practice: My second question relates to Paint.NET. So, i've been experimenting with making sprites of images that already exist, by taking parts of them and putting them together, and changing colours and stuff. But now that i've tried making sprites of my own, i've got some problems of making a starting black and white sketch. I've been using the lines and curves tool but the curves are hard IMO to use. I would wanna know if i could copy somehow curves and reverse them, ill give you an example of why I want to do it. The head of the sprite would be cooler, if both right and left side would be symmetric. (This is my first sprite, so be not tough judge ) Edited May 31, 2013 by Nibre Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
