Hello, here are two quick and dirty articles you can look over and see whether raster or vector is better suited to what you want to do:

 

Raster: http://www.gamedev.net/page/resources/_/creative/visual-arts/better-programmer-art-r2594

 

 

Vector: http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/ChrisHildenbrand/20111015/8669/2D_Game_Art_For_Programmers__Part_1_updated.php

 

For detail I would lean towards raster (Photoshop or GIMP)

 

Your second link is absolutely fantastic, it should be stickied somewhere if it isn't already. Although I can draw just fine I feel like trying this "programmer art" out because I'm looking for a more "naive" style and it looks really great. Thanks. smile.png
