Trying very hard to make myself work on sprites. I've done pretty well I think, making what I think is a well rendered form of a cowboy hat to start. The shading could certainly use some work, but that is a long way from something I understand, and also, something which can be tweaked later. For now, I'm just happy that my cowboy hat LOOKS like a cowboy hat and not an indiscriminate blob of brown and black. I know that's probably not much of an accomplishment for artists out there, but I'm not an artist.
If these work out at all (even if they're barely passable) I'll release what I've made to everyone and hopefully some artist will look down and feel a burning passion to polish it up. Otherwise, I'll be the only one (apparently) making cowboy sprites.
