Developer? Can’t draw? Learn how to create amazing 2D art, today!

Most developers would tell you, they are not artists – in the classic sense. They would tell you a story of how their UI design is poor and they always choose the worse color schemes for their apps. They would end the story by telling you about their failed attempt at creating a game and how they failed due in part to their “lack” of artistry. Well, today is the day those excuses are forever null and void. Today we will learn how to create amazing 2D, game art. For developers, by a developer.
