Is there any tutorial about drawing tiles?
« on: Tue, Aug 9, 2011 »
I find it very difficult to draw tiles in Illustrator.

Is there any tutorial for drawing tiles?
Is there any special software for that?

Sorry for  not being  very related to flixel.

Is that not more handy with paint or the like?

Maybe Deviantart can help you, http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&section=&q=tiles+tutorial.

This is the best 'technical' tutorial for drawing tiles. In the sense that it's more about technique than tools:

Strongly recommend at least reading sections 1-4. Shading is a -big deal- when it comes to making tiles so reading this would probably be good too:
