I'm trying to teach myself how to make half decent 2d graphics for my video game projects and right now I'm deciding whether I want to focus on raster or vector graphics. I want to hear peoples input but I'm also going to give vector graphics a try because I've never made vector art before and I want to get a feel for it.

 

so first off what vector graphics program would you recommend? Is there any standard software that is used for vector game art(flash maybe?) or does anyone want to recommend one that is good for making 2d graphics/animations? Right now I'm planning on using flash because I want learn actionscript and whatnot eventually anyway so I might as well get familiar with the software, unless anyone thinks flash isn't suitable for my needs for some reason.

 

 

Like I said I also want to get some peoples input on using vector graphics instead of raster for my android games. I'm not actually planning on rendering vectors in my game but just creating the graphics and animations with a vector program and saving them as .png. The reasons I'm considering vectors are because it looks somewhat easier for a non-artist like myself and because it would make animations much easier and less time consuming. I want to have half decent graphics in my game and I plan on investing a lot of time into improving my 2d art skills but I don't want to be spending weeks/months creating graphics for each game I make. I may be wrong but from the few tutorials I skimmed over on vector graphics it looked like it was pretty quick/easy.

 

alright thanks for reading my post if you have any advice to offer me please reply smile.png
