Working around picnic and other things, I managed to get some more done on my game. I was so proud when I got a multi-event to work.
There is a great project on Kickstarter right now that will help Indie developers. Its called Indie Graphics Builder and is a package that will work within your current 2d art program; but lets you build from pieces they provide, various objects that you can use in your game. For a better description of this go to their Kickstarter-Indie Graphics Builder page. The home page of the creator has an excellent selection of 2d graphics which you can purchase now.
