Ever since I locked down the player's proportions, drawing him has been much easier. Of course, drawing him in profile is problematic. Hence, my lack of attacks. I'm been looking at sprite sheets from other games and getting ideas of how to do it. That's still a ways off though.
I have Drink and Draw tonight and am going to try and create the bottom floor of my building tiles. Maybe a few variations if i'm lucky. I haven't exactly figured out how cut them up yet (or if i'll even cut them at all). Hopefully I'll get that ironed out tonight.
