How do you make a backround and how do you make a character?

Template is like a backround right? I want to make a backround and character (Actor) but how? Do I have to draw it on like a paint program or something? I'm not good at painting. Also how do you make like the ground and houses and stuff like that?

    I like to use Paintbrush and Inkscape. Google them and you will find their links. If you can't find Paintbrush for Mac just google the text that I just wrote.

    A template is not a background. A background is a background. ;) Everything made in GameSalad consist of actors. That means a background is an actor, and a cloud is an actor. You will need to create all images yourself or find royalty free images. You can hire artists to do art for you.

    If you haven't already, I'd go and read through the cookbook and take a look on our site. We have tons of free video tutorials.

    Yes there are hundreds of paint programs ou can use. It really all depends on your skill and the level you want your graphics to be.

    A background would be like sky or trees, .....etc

    A template is a pre built game or logic for you to study and learn from.

    If your not good at any of the above items the. You might want to study them all over and practice some before you jump into making something. Also gs marketplace, deep blue and gas helper as lots of stuff you can study and learn from. Also the ha cookbook is a good starting point as well.

    Good luck
