In another rare personal appearance on Pokémon Smash!, Game Freak director Junichi Masuda has announced that Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 are in development, and will be released in Japan in June for the Nintendo DS. The games were also announced on the official Japanese and international websites.
New formes of Kyurem were also revealed. The Kyurem/Zekrom forme, 「ブラックキュレム」 Black Kyurem, will be the mascot of Black 2, while the Kyurem/Reshiram forme, 「ホワイトキュレム」 White Kyurem, will be the mascot for White 2, in contrast to the original Pokémon Black and White.
If these games are direct sequels of Black and White, as the title would suggest, they would be the first direct sequels in the Pok&

Using image sequences as animated textures in MayaToday I've been working on importing image sequences as animated textures into Maya.Using image sequences as animated textures in Maya4 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you who've never done this before, Maya is not very good at working with animated textures, it's very fussy.
Before you start, you have to make sure that the image sequence is called image.###.ext where ### is the incrementing frame number. Then you create a file texture node, and load the first image, then tick "Use Image Sequence" in the file node.
The first thing you realise upon doing this, is that if your timeline extends before or after the first or last frame in your animated sequence, Maya throws a hissy fit and doesn't know what to do with it.
To get around this, I added an attribute to my object which I was going to animate a texture on, called "frameLength", where I stored the number of the last frame in my animated sequence.
I also added an attribute called "startFrame" which is the frame I want to start my animated texture on.
Then I created an expression so it didn
FAQ! Finally!Hello everybody!FAQ! Finally!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been getting an increase in notes and messages lately asking all kinds of things. Problem is, I'm far from having the time to answer all these questions individually (even if I did have it it would probably make more sense to spend it drawing), but I don't want to leave them unanswered either since I appreciate everyone's feedback a lot. So I decided to make a kind of FAQ, since I'm mostly being asked the same things over and over.
I'll try to group these semantically so reading though them makes a bit of sense.
Did you ever do any tutorials?
- Yes, I spent a lot of time on this one:
There's a lot of explaining in there, so please before you ask anything technique or learning related, read it thoroughly first.
I also have a ton of step-by-steps in this folder here: http://algenpfleger.deviantart.com/gallery/8622578

light and color stuffhilight and color stuff10 months ago in Personal More Like This
i just wanted to quickly put together some basic things about how i think of light and color that i think are important to be mindful of in order to make meaningful decisions about these things in your pictures. it's not going to be very fancy, but i hope its useful to somebody. im not good at writing stuff so please bear with me.
to see anything we need light. light is emitted from a emission source. after that, as i see it there are basically 3 ways light reaches your eyes
1. it is reflected off of things (such as objects)
2. it is transmitted through things (such as air)
3. it is scattered by things (such as air)
let's say we have a perfectly red ball. we know this ball is red because when we shine white light on it, red light is reflected back at us. so how does that work?
to answer that we must understand something about white light. white light is light that is made up of every color within (at least) the visible spectrum. it has red, blue, green, yellow, and so on

Shimeji English EnhancedHello,Shimeji English Enhanced5 years ago in Personal More Like This
this is a submition by :iconrelic-nt: which I find is to be considered and useful.
Especially for people who get tired of explaining to newcomers and customers what the manual of the shimeji says.:
Remember Shimeji, that desktop mascot progam? Yeah, I know it's so two months ago. Anyway, I started a branch of the code called Shimeji-ee (Shimeji English Enhanced.) It's Shimeji, but completely in English/Engrish (including the configuration files) with some new enhancements.
I'm mainly here asking people to contribute to the project: programmers, wiki writers, and people to make new Shimeji types.
So far, I have the English translation mostly done (although it could use editing) and I've added support for: multiple Shimeji types at once, better context menus, and the ability to force a Shimeji to perform behaviors. I've pretty much done everything I want with the program and I'm not really intending to do more programming. But I opened up the p
Meeting Weird Al!Last night I got one of the thrills of my life when I got to meet Weird Al Yankovic backstage after his show here in Minneapolis! I've been an Al fan since I first heard the "Weird Al" In 3-D album in 1984 and I've been a big fan ever since. I only have two artists' full libraries on my iPhone, The Beatles and Al. So yeah, I'm a fan.Meeting Weird Al!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Not only did I get to see him perform live (my fifth time seeing him), but I got to give him and his drummer Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz copies of my "Meeting Al" piece:
Both Al and Jon were awesome and I can't thank them enough for allowing me and my friend Natalie to meet them. I want to say a special thanks to Jon, who could not have been kinder or friendlier, for responding to Natalie's e-mail about possibly meeting the king of parody. Jon suprised me by saying "he doesn't know you're here, he's gonna love this". I was really honored to be able to give them both print copies of my piece.

Snippy: poem of doomI've a lot of time on my hands living inside the whale and such. ....So, today I wrote a poem about Captain:Snippy: poem of doom4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Oh Captain, my Captain! I say it to mock,
You're lucky as hell but to me you're a c***.
Please spare me the missions, I've no head for heights,
Balloons and big lists lead me only to blights.
Evading the probes of an alien race,
Then having to witness your > : ( angry face...
But what choice have I? I'm involved in these fights,
With Cancerous space-monsters full of red sprites,
And Lemonade weirdos and God knows what next,
Just how can you stay so serene and unvexed?
What price should I pay for your simple delights,
Be eaten by whales after soiling my whites?
I know you won't listen, but you'll come unstuck,
And one of these days you'll run right out of luck,
Your empire will fall, and your ego besides,
It's karma for sure, like the turn of the tides,
And then I will lol, sitting in my own muck,
Coz after all this I just won't
Beyond the Pixels #2Howdy, I return to once again outline the process of a recent piece in a step-by-step manner.Beyond the Pixels #22 days ago in Personal More Like This
So I kind of jumped in to this piece with no vision. I knew who I wanted to pixel and that's about it. So first thing I did was some sketches to figure out what kind of pose I wanted. These were very quickly done. The point of them wasn't to get a good base going, the point was to get an idea of what kind of pose I wanted.
After I scrapped the above, a vision finally dawned on me and I got to sketching it out;
Next up, line art! This part I spent a lot more time on. Laid down the line art one pixel at a time. I find it easier to count pixels as I go instead of just drawing them on and then cleaning them up; except the hair. T
Wacom Horror Warning peopleI realized i just been living in a lie. Been coloring with the wrong icc profile for almost 6 years. Its because all this time i had a secondary monitor like 8 years old that ive never notice it. I just bought recently a cheap and amazing monitor 23 inches aoc, and noticed that my cintiq tablet colors looked washed away.Wacom Horror Warning people3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I asked myself why all my drawings in deviant art dont look like in my cintiq, they look washed away or burned.
Because of two problems.
I have all my files in adobe 1998 icc, which its good for printing but not web browsing, but the most horrible one, its that the cintiq21ux.icc that came in my cd was really wrong. Got the correct one in a wacom europe page, my cintiq its first generation, so new drivers sucked hard doesnt work.
Also warning for those that have same old cintiq like me, new drivers screw up the pen, cuts the pressure in half or gives weird pressure to it-, and worst ive been coloring with pen pressure wrong and color really bad.

Wacom Interactive Pen Displays??????Ok, so I was talking with :iconfooray: about Cintiqs and stuff. And he came across these. It's funny that we've never saw this before. If you know about this already, never mind.Wacom Interactive Pen Displays??????3 years ago in Personal More Like This
They're not Cintiqs, but they're basically lower-level, and lower-priced Wacom display tablets. The smallest one which is a 15.6 inch one, starts at like $1250 on Wacom's site. The second size is a 17 inch 4:3 one starting at $1600, and the biggest one, which is a widescreen HD 21.5 inch one starts at $1900.
A lot of people ask me about Cintiqs and the prices, but I was never aware that Wacom had these available. The only downside is that these only have 512 levels of pressure sensitivity, but I figure if you're thinking of/using an iPad, you'll appreciate at least that and that that 512 shouldn't matter much.
Even that smallest model KILLS the base Cintiq 12WX's specs imho, for only an additional $250. And these are on eBay as well, meaning you can most likely get them cheaper. I guess the fact that Cintiqs a
