This is the first sprite I officially made for the 9. I never finished the Photoshop book that we were doing in class, but I know a good amount.
I think I got to chapter 11 out of 18. Anyway, the heart has blood coming from it, but it might as well be magma. I made it look firey like, but I forgot what tool I used to do that (or was it the gradient tool????? sharpen????).
