I'm not the very best at design, but I have looked for tutorials to design normal sprites for games (mobile devices), like background, ground and all that stuff in 2D. Are there any inspirations/tutorials for this?

Thanks in advance!

This question has a vast amount of resources.


Spriters-Resource is a nice place, but you cannot use them commercially. (Ripped from video games)

I asked for how I can by myself design, not for free ones. – Curtain Jan 12 '11 at 18:50
Ah, apologies. In that case, they'll certainly fall under inspiration. Let me go find that really good spriting tutorial I've used I don't know how many times. ;-) – The Communist Duck Jan 12 '11 at 18:52
