I am a developer and really need to get to grips with graphics.
Even before settling on a specific tool, what I need is somewhere to go and learn how to do things, such as for instance a "save" icon. Problem is, I wouldn't know where to start and I am a total newbie in this regard. What is worse, googling without knowing pretty much anything on the subject isn't going to be really helpful, because, well, how can you tell good from bad? :)
Ideally, it should be a set of tutorials "building" up from something simple, say a square with an X inside :), to more complex things, such as a saving disk or "better". I am saying the square with the x inside because, well, if I do it it's awful, but I've seen pretty good ones :) so I guess there might be a better way to it :D
Do you know of any such place where I can start learning?
Thank you for any suggestion!
