Gamemaker Resources

I'm working with a group of kids to help them learn the very basics of GameMaker. I'm looking for libraries of sprites, backgrounds, and sounds to help them in the creation process. Are there ready-made libraries for educators out there. If I have to cobble it together on my own, what are good places to get the basics for making simple 2-dimensional games? Also: are there any good premade game templates (shooter, platformer, puzzle games) that we can use to get their ideas down? We're more interested in the story-telling process of game creation, and not so much the learning to program part. [more inside]

Hiring custom artist for a card game?

I'm designing a card game and I have most of my own art for prototyping, but eventually want *real* art. I have no place where to look for such a thing or how much it would cost. Does anyone have any ideas on what sort of going rate such a thing would cost? Do you pay by the hour? Any tips are greatly appreciated.

"Game Art" universities in Montreal?

Do you know of any schools in Montreal that offer programs in Game/3D Art? So far my results only show character-animation based schools, and I'm looking for something less specialized in the field. (The Game Art & Design program at the Art Institute is sort of my reference point.)

The ultimate nerd dream?

I have a ruleset for a board game and am working on prototyping it. I don't necessarily want to make money off of it, and I'm mostly doing it for fun. One possible option is to put up the ruleset online while copyrighting the basic idea - is this a good idea? [more inside]
