After spending the last hour and a half working furiously on more humanoid icons for Darke Dungeon, I've come to realize (yet again!) that I have very little artistic talent.
Given the choice between the masterwork of pixels that I have been working on and the smileys that are in the game now, I have no doubt that everyone would prefer the smileys. :P
Anyone have the URL for a tutorial about animating the human form performing a variety of maneuvers in a 32 x 32 icon?
