    If you're putting pixels into any kind of a web browser, you'll want to be able to scale it up without turning it into a blurry mess. Unfortunately, web browsers are a bit of a moving target in that regard, but this blog post seems up-to-date on the subject.

    Pixel perfect drawing algorithm

    Posted by Innomin at 1/14/2014 2:33:00 PM | 1 comments

    A completely free online app, that creates .ttf fonts from simple shapes drawn in a grid. It can make pixel fonts and more, so you don't have to manually draw the text in your art mockups.

    Here's an example font inspired by cure's I Am Legion, that I created in about 30 minutes. Now it works in GraphicsGale and Flash. Hooray!

    When you sleep, you are dreaming. Some dreams are beautiful and vivid, the others are strange, and the rest of them are horrible... We've having them all the night, and then wake up and forget them. But what if one day your "awakening" would be a difficult task? Could you find a way out of the dreams and wake up?

    A web-based tool for automatically generating color ramps.  At the time of this posting, it only supports the Dawnbringer 32 palette, but other palettes may be added later.
    The way it works is that you select three colors:
    * The color of the object being lit
    * A highlight color
    * An ambient color (which determines the color of shadows)

    You also select the reflectivity of your object.  A perfectly reflective object is like a mirror, and has no color of its own.

    As you change the color and reflectivity values, a preview image will be updated on the fly to show you what your gradient will look like when in use.  The gradient will always use colors from the Dawnbringer 32 color palette (other palettes may be added later if people like this tool).  It will avoid duplicate colors and do its best to make sure the gradient is sorted by luminosity.

    Anyway, it probably makes more sense if you just mess around with it, so let me know what people think, and if there's anything that would be useful to add to it.


    See the forum thread HERE for details or info.
