Is there any good tools for generating art? Say for example they give you x number of characters and you can change certain features. I know IGB has some stuff but I'm not sure I want to spend $200 without seeing the whole set.
I also saw a Button Maker which is what led me to consider this possibility. As an example you could create a glass button then use a brighter version when the mouse hovers.
And preferably reasonable quality, not pixelated.
