Im new to 2d art, I usually make 3d games with C++ but I'm trying to make a 2d game. What programs do you recommend, I have gimp but I don't know how to use it to make game objects and such. If someone can link a tutorial or explain that would be very use full. I cant find anything on these subjects using Google/you tube

I just use MSPaint and PaintShopPro 10.

If I didn't have PaintShopPro, I'd probably use the free Paint.NET instead.

Art tutorials seem to usually be directed toward a specific style of art, but you can still learn from a tutorial even if it's not the same art style that you are using for your game.
