Hello everyone. I wish to learn how to make my own graphics. This may sound like a foolish question but please be patient as my knowledge of graphics is zip. I want to know that if someone wants to make good graphics must they always be a great artist? I was going to get the book ,associated with gamedev, called "Game Art for Teens" but was told that you need to be able to draw well. Personally my artistic skills are non-existant. Second off what is a good book for me to start on that has sample programmings?

You want to make good graphics? Does that mean you wish to create good game content to be loaded into games such as 3D models and 2D images? Or does that mean that you wish to program a renderer that has nice graphics?

If the first is the case then the above response applys. If the later is the case then you are in the "right place" though most topics discussed here are rather advanced.

If your are interested in learning how to create simple renderings check out the tutorials at http://nehe.gamedev.net. That should get you started, then I would ask your specific learning questions in a more specific forum such as opengl or directx depending on the api you choose.

Hope that helped and good luck.
