I feel very apprehensive about showing these things. I did them while working at Gameloft more than a year ago, and both of these games are out by now. I had lots of fun on both projects, and I learned a lot. But I sucked far more than I do now. Still suck, but maybe less.
Also, I did a seven page workshop for 2D artist magazine this month, so buy it to gain some insight into my "secrets" :). Fortunate to land the cover. http://www.2dartistmag.com/latest.html
