main titles

wow i mean i know i go on about connor all the time but do you ever like think about aveline and how she deserved SO much better than she got?

like when they finally make a woman an ac protagonist they dont do it in a main game title and instead keep her trapped in a shitty handheld no one had and when it was FINALLY released for home console it had little to no marketing??

plus just how ac games had (white) women as either related to the hero, an apprentice or as a love interest and when a woc showed up they decided that she was better as an Independent Woman Who Doesnt Need No Man even though she had great potential with connor, elise lafleur or patience gibbs as love interests?? like a woc with no romance arc is nothing new or revolutionary but ubisoft pretended it was this Revolutionary Move™ and like… yikes

i know we talk about connor a lot but she deserved better too

Sinnoh Confirmed

Many people may not have noticed this, but I found this pretty damn intriguing.

Now I’m sure many were upset by the Direct and I was as well and still am.

I noticed a very awesome Easter Egg that to me directly confirms Sinnoh Remakes are coming.

And it’s all in this picture. Take a look in the background all the Main title generations are there….except one. Which one is it I wonder?

Before people say it’s behind his head there’s also this screenshot as well

Awfully strange that Nintendo would not put Diamond, Pearl, nor Platinum in the background image, especially since every other generation is on there,

I think the reasoning they’re doing it is obvious, cause they want to hype up the Sinnoh remakes and make people hyped.

Not a single indication of Sinnoh in the background which means it’s coming.

ANIMATIC: OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes Main Title

(See the final version here!)

Presenting the rough animatic for the show’s main titles! This was a true labor of love and a chance to work with one of my animation heroes, Hiroyuki Imaishi(Best known as the co-founder of Studio Trigger)!

For this project, we began by solidifying the theme song. Our team at Mint Potion Studios, headed by composer Jake Kaufman, created a blood-pumping disco song that not only extols the virtues of friendship but also brings to mind the visual of robots exploding. As an easter egg, the first 9 notes are a callback to the theme song of the original 2012 “Lakewood Plaza Turbo” pilot!

We sent the theme song and some early episodes to Imaishi-san in Japan for him to get the vibe of the project. He sent us a mind-blowing storyboard- he created an otherworldly image of a planet encased in a discoball seamlessly transitioning to a wild action sequence(described by him as “CRAZY FIGHTING”)! Our storyboard supervisor Jeremy Polgar took it from there, and animated the heck out of it. Pausing randomly on the final version reveals some pretty out-there character drawings!

This intro is very special to me, as it encapsulates all of the feelings of the show into one place. It took months of coordinating across multiple time zones. It was a challenge to get all of the main characters, rivals, settings, and a discoball all in 20 seconds! Please, enjoy our hard work!

Not going to lie, I’m crazy happy to see Pauline in Super Mario Odyssey. I can’t believe she’s appearing in a main Super Mario title as a prominent NPC. That’s very cool! Can’t wait to see how she’s used and if we get any other cool cameos. 

I love that she’s mayor of New Donk City, and red suit is a nice touch. The fact that she’s a singer, and sings the theme song is just awesome and perfect. 

I only have one concern - she’s always been taller than Mario, but previously it appeared she was closer to Peach’s height or at least shorter than characters like Rosalina (although Pauline’s size has always been inconsistent), but this game slightly redesigns her to be less “cartoon-ish/stylised”. Making her somewhat semi-realistic like the other citizens of New Donk City (although her face and appearance are still more stylised than the other NPCs in her area). This worries me because it makes her proportions very different to other Mario franchise characters and I’m scared this means she’ll never appear past this game, in spin-offs or future titles (as Super Mario games rarely repeat locations as well) because she won’t fit stylistically. 

Although, I suppose Nintendo could always re-cartoon her/shrink her down at their own discretion (as lets be honest consistency is not always a big concern to them), to insert her into - oh I don’t know - a kart, a party, or whatever. 

However, even with this concern … I’m thrilled to see her, this is an awesome surprise and MAYBE it will be her last appearance for a long time again (I don’t know, I hope not), but if that’s the case its a pretty fantastic one!

Oh! Also the New Donk City purple currency has an image of the city on one side and a profile of Pauline on the other, which is sweet.

how to create aesthetic graphics

(a tutorial by rihleymatthews) 

so, many people requested me a tutorial on these (x and x) graphics, and since they are not hard at all to create, i decided to try explaining to you guys how they come to life. 

WARNING: this is a long and detailed tutorial. Please keep in mind I tried to show all the tricks I normally use for these graphics, so some steps are optional or extra.

you’ll need: 

  • basic to medium photoshop knowledge (such as cropping, blending and shadowing)
  • a concept (a tv show, a character, something you can pick objects to represent them or their porsonality)
  • patience, a lot of patience.
