lol, slowdown there. no reason to rush yourself. 2d, and 3d art, alogn with all forms of programming are massive subjects that take years to be knowledgable in.
i say stick with one particluar subject and stay with that for a while, otherwise you're bound to get overwhelmed.

Well, art is a massive subject. Are you asking how to use, say, photoshop, or are you asking how to become an artist?


I'm asking on how to use. photoshop and stuff...
anyway, I know art is a massive subject and that is why it's very difficult to know where to start...
maybe you can recommand me of books which i can learn from, books for beginners.

I tried googling Rayman, but since there are several versons of the game for mutiple platforms, all of which had somewhat different graphics, I wasn't sure what qualified as 'the first one'. Perhaps you could link to a specific screenshot from the game including both a background and the character. And also a sample of your current art.

Thats true, games need designs and concepts, then full color graphics, and to top it off you need animation skills.

I know which Rayman game, there is even an easy to get demo.
