I'm looking for software that has a preset library (additional libraries, even purchasable is good) that allows you to create 2D game art. For example you might have a library of stars. It would then allow you to change the shape, size, add a border, etc.
There's similar packages out there for particles which I've used to create an animated shield, small explosion with cloud effect, and a large ground explosion.
not sure if it's what you're looking for but here's a few links i've enjoyed using:
(i think eventually he's going to update this to let people add their own things to it)
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
kenney studio is really so cute
Kenney Studio also has a donate option that gets you all of their 3500+ sprites which includes ones they have not released to the public before. Great deal!
I came across a Explosion Generator 3
It's Free if that's any use to anyone?
It can export as:
Series of PNG Frames
Series of TIFF Frames
Series of JPEG Frames
Separate MASKS, IMAGES and TRANSP Background Frames
