Got covered on AndeOns.com

Covered on Andeons.com

What a nice surprise to wake up to a cover on Andeons.com. A Portuguese blog that has picked up on the tutorials here at 2dgameartguru.com and finds the a worthwhile read.

” If you do not have artistic skills or even lack a professional assigned at this stage of development, I suggest you visit and follow his blog because you will not regret it!”

Let’s keep it that way and write more tutorials for those beginning to do game art.

Finishing up the next game – Super Crossbar Challenge

Super Crossbar Challenge

Game release

It’s been too long since I posted something new and I apologize for the lack of new tutorials. I got caught up in a few interesting projects. Ending up doing the artwork for some fun little games. Consequently resulting in less time for new tutorials and blog maintenance.

The latest one being finished at the moment with a planned release for mid-April is Super Crossbar Challenge. An addictive football game created by Pedro Cabaço of Shattered Box Games. It will be published by Fredbear Games and Play Play Games.

We are currently looking for testers for the upcoming iOS version – see the post on TouchArcade. Shortly, an Android version will follow shortly.

Update:
Both versions have been released by now.
The game is available for Android and iOS:

Ending 2016 with a BIG free game art giveaway!

Free BlockBuddies – characters and packs

2Dgameartguru news giveaway

The year is coming to an end and it’s not been treating me too well… I had ongoing health issues and left Serbia where I was working with a bunch of friends. Long periods of testing new medication to help me with my pains and aches ended without much of a result… but hey…
I am still around and kicking. In order to end 2016 on a sweeter note, I will be giving away all BlockBuddies (single characters and packs) for free (for a limited time).

Grab them while they are there!

Have a happy and successful 2017 – may all your wishes come true and your game projects reach completion!

Here’s the preview of (most of) the available characters:
(there are some samurai and a mummy missing in this image for starters)

Note:
I was a little bit lazy… and didn’t alter the prices on the blog pages though. As soon as you click on the buy button you should see the discounted price on the sellfy page – 0.00.
Sellfy requires a share… Sorry… I can’t bypass that either.

FREE game templates plus art from deep blue apps.

I will try and find my png files and will sort, pack and upload them for easier integration into other game engines.
