It’s time for something new


2Dgameartguru special tutorial city skyline
This tutorial is a 14 page PDF step-by-step creation of the cartoony skyline shown above. It features the envelope tool to create the windows in a quick and easy way.
The PDF can be opened in Inscape (or other vector tools) and the shapes are fully editable. 

You can use the art in your personal and commercial projects as long as you don’t sell the art as is or in a bundle.

This won’t mean I will stop writing the free tutorials on this blog but for more complex scenes and detailed tutorials, the new format just seems to be better suited.

There seems to be a problem with Inkscape on a mac.
Serhat Gurel posted a solution on google+.

hi if anyone is having trouble with the envelope extension used in this tutorial and is running mac osx mavericks – google eggbotcode or see this post
Being a PC guy, I can tell you if it works but it might just be worth a try.

get the PDF for 0.99 US$


I set up the sale via as a few direct orders I replied to ended up in the junk mail or reached me at less opportune times e.g. during the night – and I do try and get a little sleep – overrated as it may be. You can still pay via Paypal but the handling will be done by instead of yours truly. 

Let’s see how this works out. I might change the rest of the blog at some stage. If you have experience with microtransactions and know a good platform to handle it, please let me know.
