Top down - extras 2 - tank

Here are some requested addition to the top down view tutorial.

A nice big tank with a separated turret. Just make sure you adjust the shadows - as they are created for this view only. 

The objects are also separated into two PNG files. 



Enjoy!

  1. Hi, I’m posting here because your other blog (2dgameartforfree) doesn’t allow anonymous comments. The link for the zip is wrong (on both sites actually!) Also I’m wondering what the licence is for your free art, I couldn’t find it anywhere.
    Thanks!

    1. I do work in other tools as well... e.g. I quite like the ease and speed of coreldraw for some tasks and when it comes to print jobs nothing beats illustrator for best quality and ease of exchanging files with printers.

      As for free... well... it's tutorial pages... You build your own and use them which ever way you want. There is some free stuff on here as well for direct download - and bit more on http://2dgameartforfree.blogspot.com/ .

  5. Chris are you selling art in the Unity Asset Store?

    The second page of that pack is clearly your art from these tutorials and I could not stand anyone making money off what you gave us freely.

    1. No... I do not... Thanks for spotting it, Shane... It happens all the time... Some people take the tutorials a free to copy assets instead of seeing them as a means to learn to do your own art.

  6. Hi Chris, do you do small commission work?
    My son and I are making a game together, and we would like some top down soldiers in specific positions that matches the graphic style you used in your tank sprite (and other top down army sprites).
    How do I contact you (other than posting on this forum), do you have a freelance@hildenbrand.com email or something?

  7. This is really awesome stuff! Maybe you could make a tutorial for Top Down ground tiles and decorations? How about a tutorial on shading certain kinds of 'texture' on objects, like how to create the illusion that something is made out of metal, glossy, chrome, glass, dull and flat, that kind of thing...

    1. It was supposed to be a German tank at some stage [if I remember correctly there was a Leopard involved) and then I went creative... but the insignia is the easiest thing to replace ;)
