I've got two that really helped me, and are relatively easy to use and understand.

Waffle-y Tutorial
Spicy Curry Brush

There are a lot more, of course, but I got a lot out of using my brushes to their fullest from those two.

Please help me! :(

I need some artist who could be kind enhough to help me with backgrounds for my MML flash movies.
As you can see in my latest MML work http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/376200 ,
I have what it takes to make my flash movies be rated to "Awesome"

(These are screenshots of the 2 serious submissions in newgrounds)

But i have a big problem, i suck at making backgrounds, my designated background for, like, EVERYTHING is a landscape of mountains and grass, PA-THE-THIC!
In my "how did megaman return" flash, the background is Juno's room, that is white, but it still looks empty! I SUCK!

Now, for the next one, wich will be a lot better, for it's featuring our dearest Dashe and SonicMega, the guy who made my Mega and Juno voice as the voiceactors, i'd wish to have somewhat decent backgrounds, and im seriously not the guy for that.

So, i'm begging for help from ANYONE who can make backgrounds for me, please! You will be on every credit way possible, from the credits scene in the movie, to the author comments in newgrounds, deviantart and my website, when it's done.

If you cannot make backgrounds, then if you know someone who can help me, please let them know! I cannot make excellent animations without TRUE backgrounds!
Thank you for reading, and in advance to those who can help me.

Is there a website that shows you how to draw outlines using the pen tool.
E.g you want to straighten the outline of a jagged sword from your sketch.

Uhh I guess adobe, but what you apply to traditionnal can be done in digital so really any guide could be good.

If you are working with CS photoshop you have to use "Save as" instead of "Save". Then, you will be able to choose the format (jpg, png...).

Using "Save" will only save as a photoshop format (so you can edit it later)
