You might want to try Python. It's relatively easy to learn, and relatively easy to embed into an application, so if your friends use it for scripting you can at least help out with some of that.

The best path to take to learn how to make graphics for games depends on what kind of game your friends are making. If they are making a 3D shooter game, you'll probably want to learn how to do 3D modeling. If it's a sprite based side scroller, then you'd probably need to learn how to do 2D raster art.

You can always learn Python first and then begin learning C++. Many skills you'll learn in Python will help you greatly in understanding and programming with C++.

While major game companies won't be developing in Python, it's a good learning experience and almost everything you learn in it will be transferable to other languages. Python is much more beginner-friendly than C++. It's also great for writing small tools and utilities later on which will come in handy.

thank you..but i think they want to use c++ but i'll ask....thank you SiCrane


Maybe you can get your C++ friends to integrate a Python engine into the game, so you can help out with the game's scripting.

It's also a lot more powerful than C++. In any event, it's a great language to start with, and to continue with. Python has actually been used in a few commercial games, such as Freedom Force and the Backyard series of games.
