MS Paint is here to stay, it will just have a new home soon, in the Windows Store where it will be available for free.
Phew. Good to hear.
Awesome. Please do! It‘s tons of fun.
I don’t have any video tutorials, but I might make some in the future. I’ve written lots of articles that might be of interest: https://bjango.com/articles/
This one in particular is on icon design: https://bjango.com/articles/icondesignworkflow/
I’m hoping to write some articles covering some of the speed run icons, going through each step.
There’s still time! Illustrator does so many cool things. Makes icon design a lot easier.
I didn’t have them documented, but because you asked, I added some info here: Greyprint Illustrator actions help
Artificial constraints FTW. The pressure is on when recording. It’s like designing with someone watching over your shoulder.
At some point in the future, yep, definitely. :) Working hard on it.
I hope they don’t. I have a lot of stuff there.
This is good advice. Definitely a smart idea to keep your long term goals in mind, and be as helpful as you can to as many people as you can (yep, just paraphrasing).
I’d also add that opening your own studio means running a business. That has its own challenges and things you’ll need to learn. The business and networking side might dictate your chance of success more than your actual design skills, so it’s worth paying some attention to that as well.
I did it for you. <3
