While working on my little XNA sample I bumped into a little problem. No matter how much time I spent on it, I can't draw for the heck of it. And not to mention, the total time it'd have taken me to draw a set of sample sprites might have allowed me to finished another code module on the sample.
In a suddden eureka moment I picked up the Asoblocks I bought a while back, put together some models and then took this photo.
The individual elements were then color keyed so I'd have a pretty nice template to work with.
Then it was a matter of resizing the image and adding some extra details and viola…
Definetly better than me trying to draw the whole thing!
