I am looking for the way to make high resolution sprites, that are close to games like Shank and Mark of the ninja, in quality. Since It takes me far too long to draw all required sprites for just one character. I am thinking of using 3d models and rendering them to fit my needs (I can do this more quickly).
Would I benefit in some way If I am to use 3d sprites for everything in 2d platformer? Or is it just a waste of time? Are there any good resources on how to draw high resolution sprites?
