Why not use pixel art? it's simple and easy. Just use the rule of "2x1" to draw.

(The rule of 2x1 is that for all parallel lines, you make the line go over 2 times and then up once, over 2, up one.)

Here's an example of pixel art.


Notice that it creates the illusion of 3D by drawing all the horizontal and vertical lines that are at 90 degrees with the rule of 2x1.


It's a simple art style, and it doesn't require much drawing skill, just a bit of discipline.

Ah. Didn't realize you were using flash. I assumed you were either programming it in an actual programing language or that you were using Game Maker. See, that's why you specify what you're using.

Anyway, I suggest you work out what KIND of business the player will be running.

Pixels you say?! That reminds me of my dear friend who recently died. He tried teleporting across the ocean, but came out 8-bit.

I suggest you to place in your first post a message that you are using Flash so it is more clear.

Also, use a Line background? It is pretty easy, but for the first time it isn't that bad, and it is easy to move.
Also, the shadows are easy to draw and give a pretty nice effect.

well before all this talk about graphics i think you actualy need a solid game idea. right now all you have is a blan idea, you dont even know what the buisness will be.
so think about that first.
