  1. We here at the Daily Weekly hope so, and have been practicing bartending to serve drinks for every one!
  2. The Scarlet Submarine Co. (Three new cities!)

    Sure! Though it looks like Valucre now autoformats images and the map stretches on mobile, so let me know if you'd rather have a 960x540 version--smaller but no stretching. Also I estimated the locations of Medain Sari, Port Caelum and Baaj, so if they seem out of place you can use Paint to mark the correct locations (just something simple like red dots) and I'll update it.
  3. The Scarlet Submarine Co. (Three new cities!)

    Should point out that nothing I've posted is official or canon (besides the actual size and placement of the continents) and I'm not an authority by any means around here, this is just the way I've personally visualized Terran trade. As for the rail system, the roads in this map for Terrenus actually double as a Lightning Rail through all major cities (at least the last time I spoke to supernal about it, you'd need to ask specifics though because it isn't properly represented on any map that I know of and is only alluded to in city lore articles) so there is a rail system already in play. Though I'm not sure of exactly which paths you were talking about, the best place to ask questions like that is in one of the AMA threads in the Help board.
  4. Thanks, really like that idea for a board.

    I have a project I've been meaning to ask for your help with--I'll need a few days to get everything together, but I'm thinking it'll interest you.

  5. Adobe Tutorials

    Most are novice/beginner level, each are 5 - 10 minutes: Blend Tool Layer Options Palette Pathfinder Basics Pen Tool Pixel Art Shapes Shapes (Abstract) Stroke Basics Why learn from me when you could check out ECAbrams, Mt. Mograph, After Effects with Mikey, and the people who I learned from? Character Rigging with Duik 1.5 (20 mins) Color Expression Controls (12 mins) Character Rig Troubleshooting (48 mins)

    Daily Weekly does tutorials.
  7. Project files available here To follow this tutorial, you will need either Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop for the creation of the character and After Effects along with Duik 1.5 (free) for the animation and character rig. We'll be making a fully functional, basic template of Finn from Adventure Time: Duik is perfect for this style of cartoon and makes for very easy click-and-drag animation, once you finally have it set up. Each of the above Finns only took about a minute each to animate from the template and it has the ability to be infinitely re-used and refined. This method of rigging a character would work for any similar images, characters, and styles from Illustrator, Photoshop, or similar programs. I intended for this to be a private tutorial (which might help explain my overall tone and lack of urgency) but figured it might help someone or spur interest. In case you get impatient, I start actually using Duik at 4:00 and on, use the Auto-Rig feature at 12:43 and on, and begin playing/talking about rigging with Duik overall from 15:00 until the end. Minor discrepency: the files included in the source do not include leg layers as they're merged into the torso, the puppet pins are the same but done on the torso layer.

    Hey, what software do you use for that character art?

    I might be able to animate them lKH71kF.gif I animate stuff. Typically through a combination of Adobe Illustrator and Adobe After Effects.

      Hello!! I use a program called Paint Tool Sai for the lineart and colors, and then I use Photoshop to correct things and add some more oomph. That's so cool that you animate!! I've tried my hand at frame by frame animation in Photoshop and a few free animation programs, but Illustrator and After Effects both bewilder me. I bet they make some really clean animations!! Did you animate that "Welcome to Valucre" title, there?

      That was actually a free kinetic typeface called "Franchise", but looking at it now (a few months afterward) I could replicate it. I didn't understand how shapes in Illustrator worked and how easily they implement into After Effects when I'd first come across it so it was bewildering to me too. You should keep that up regardless! And everything bewilders every one at first, but that doesn't mean you should be reluctant to pick it up or try. There's a criminal amount of free tutorials for beginners on both Illustrator and After Effects via youtube. More recent things I've done personally:

      These are DOPE!! I love how they feel like paper cut outs, the spinning wheel one is especially impressive and detailed!! The style makes me think of Tim Burton, or the Don't Starve games. As interesting as Illustrator seems, I'm kind of a...I dunno..."sit down and draw" person, I have a very hard time finding motivation for using a program where drawing lines and shading isn't as responsive as drawing on paper, if that makes sense?  Maybe one day I'll tackle it, but for now Photoshop fulfills any small animation needs I have :')  It would be cool to collaborate on somethin' sometime, although I've never really done any vector work, and that seems to be what you make(which is smart, can zoom in on it endlessly). Just for kicks, I threw a few lil simple animations I've done in the past in here! :glasses:
