Graphics resource

Finding free graphics online is not easy, quite rightly artists expect to be paid for the hard work…trouble is I don’t like paying! If I get around to it I’ll knock together a list of the decent free game art sources I’ve found in recent times, but for now here’s just the one…

http://gamemakerfoundry.com/ is a new(ish) site created by Fabio Monzani, but already contains some really quality 2D and 3D game art. I’ve been in contact with Fabio recently and he is planning to release further 3D models in the near future, so this is definitely one to watch folks!

XNA Tutorials

So my first XNA related post is a link to the awesome 2D & 3D tutorial series available at Riemers.net. These tutorials have helped me heaps, especially when getting to grips with 3D for the first time as I’m doing now! Most are written in XNA 3.1, however if you look through the forum posts for each tutorial there are 4.0 conversions for some.

Another very good tutorial site is RB Whittaker’s Wiki, with a good number of 2D and 3D tutorials for those taking their first steps into the exciting world of XNA game development.
