Just out of curiosity, what kind of art related tutorials would folk here find the most useful?

Art, not animation. Learn to walk before you can run and all that.

Game art as it relates to Construct (such as how to import and best optimization practices, etc.) or art in general?

Some tutorials on making animations for Construct would be very useful, in my opinion.

Construct related things really, optimization and so on. Art in general would be reserved for books I'd insist on selling ;)

I think it would be cool to know more about effects and ways to use them.

BTW, for optimization, it is good to note that large images can freeze Construct like when you remove them from animations. Then again, removing effects often freezes it too...

This is what newer users need a tutorial on. They need optimization tips on how to deal with the fact you cant just pile graphics on.

And how to achieve the same results in better ways. Like instead of using a giant sprite, use tiles and tiled backgrounds.

Yeah, people do need educating on the pow2 rule, and why taking screenshots of other games and trying to use them just isn't a good idea, lol.
