#854279 Exarion's Journey through Pokémon Art Academy

Posted by Exarion on 19 January 2015 - 04:36 PM

Here we go!

All the LESSONS in game have a step-by-step on the upper screen, so we draw on the touch screen.

 

We start the game with an "admission exam", drawing a Pikachu/Froakie/Piplup face with nothing but pastel crayons.

Then we go through the Beginner course, where we draw upon a layer of outlines... This isn't so interesting, so I won't post those pictures.

 

The Novice course is a bit more challenging, where we draw upon basic shapes (and start to use other tools, shadow effects). Now, this still isn't the same as drawing by myself, yet we are much more free to work on details.

 

After that we have Graduate lessons, starting with a blank layer. Of course, we still have the step-by-step, but now it's real work!

 

Actually, it's possible to "cheat" by requiring the basic shapes and even the outlines, but I don't do that. >_>

 

 

I really liked some results in my Novice course. Keep in mind the backgrounds are added by the game. <.<

Chimchar with the regular marker tool.

Eevee with pencil tool.

The "final exam" (but not different from a lesson, really): Pikachu with pencil and paintbrush tools!

#858448 XC's New Forum Structure?

Posted by Gren on 29 October 2015 - 11:22 PM

This is dumb. the forum and site is dead. This is pointless.

I can save it though.

I have been working on something during my hobby hours with Unreal Engine. Don't quite have the exact direction that i want to go with it.

But it deals with a life size duel arena

 

I'm not going to go around and stir things up, but if you think it's pointless, why even bother making a contribution? There is some things going on behind the scenes that I can't mention but I wouldn't consider us out  of the count. The direction with all these "revival" attempts were just something that couldn't be done. I think DarkBlaze was the only worthy contender but with the amount of negativity going on, he was just getting stressed (which may or may not of been the case, just how I saw it). I have some plans going forward but right now we need to focus on one thing that will bring people in and not a mound of projects that will have everyone confused to as what's going on. Baby steps. Throwing too much on the plate is going to get us nowhere. Recreate an identity, stick with it to draw more people in or bring people back, then add something new. We've all moved on from YVD and accepted it's death. Jesse and storyteller are doing a great job trying to keep people interested. I want to expand more into M:TG. It's a dream that I could achieve with a little time, effort, and dedication. I'm sure someone is going to ask why I'm not a mod or admin or whatever since bringing these ideas on board. Right now, time is something I can't control. After my cancer treatment is finished, I can dedicate more time into this place. I was planning on raiding in WoW again but since the guild I was in died until next expansion, I can really put some time in here.

 

There was some that told me I should just move on and leave this place behind. Sadly, I can't. Most of my past came from this place and I would like to be the one to say "Yeah I was that asshole troll back in the day but look, people can change and do great things!" It was a pleasure to be able to finally get a moderator position as the M:TG mod for a while but life took over. It happens. However, the way I have my life planned out on stone now, I want to put more of my resources here. It's not dead. Just needs a purpose again.

 

 

TL:DR I care for this place too much to let it die. It's not dead. If you have nothing positive to say then don't say anything at all. Honestly, there's been more activity here then when Setever tried to do too many things at once.

 

His ideas were good on paper, but were they needed? If there's one thing I learned in life it's question everything. Gives you a better understanding of the situation.

#856339 Yu-Gi-Oh! The Custom Card Game - Main Thread & Rules

Posted by Amon on 01 May 2015 - 02:57 PM

It was bound to happen sooner or later, I suppose. No, I don't care that this is a necro of sorts. I...guess you could say I feel obligated to speak of it one last time. 'twas fun while it lasted...well, for most of it, anyway.

Out of curiosity, would it be possible to change the chat link in the navigation bar at the top of the forums to link to the Discord server considering it currently leads nowhere anyway?

#851953 Not sure how much of a farewell this is.

Posted by Amon on 01 October 2014 - 08:54 PM

This last year has been rather tumultuous on my end. Some of you might vaguely recall me mentioning a house fire that forced my family to move out at the end of last January.

Needless to say, it hasn't been happy camping since then.

Well, between the IRL problems and lost hope that someone will figure out how to save XC, I've been wondering why I'm still here. If even the admins have given up, that's a bad sign. And since I managed to rekindle my friendship with Manda after over a year since I screwed up, Idk... Maybe it's time to call it quits myself. I mean, I've been here off and on for a decade, and the times weren't always good. I also kept feeling like I didn't truly belong with the rest of the XC veterans, aka the "old people", even if 10 years lets me qualify as old.

To those who might still need me, well. Maybe I'll just ease myself off of the drug called XC, and continue to fade to black, or maybe I'll return if someone figures out how to breathe new life into the site.

Whatever the case...yeah, I think it's time to just leave my last speech here. This most likely won't be my final post, but the rest of you know now that my days here are numbered.

I won't give out alternate contact info. Anyone important enough already has it.

Until XC's next life, I guess...

#858456 Hi everybody

Posted by Juli-Mizrahi on 30 October 2015 - 02:56 AM

I'm glad to see XC is still alive and kicking. This place will always hold a place in my heart, and without is there wouldn't be dn, devpro, or any of those other knock offs. They did it better, but we did it first.
