I’ve seen a lot of posts from people who are dying to get signed stuff from Janet Varney and Bryke but they weren’t at NYCC. I am here to tell you, you can get a poster signed by Janet Varney for free just by asking!
Unfortunately Bryke doesn’t do anything like this, but if…
Make sure you get signed up on pokemon.com and opt in for the marketing emails BEFORE the end of Monday October 20th. That’s tomorrow! The Pokemon Company is ONLY sending out Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire demo codes to people that have an account and are opted in to marketing emails, so even if you have an account already make sure you are opted in to receive marketing emails. You can get some awesome mega pokemon and items by playing the demo and transferring them to your real game later so don’t miss out!
THIS IS SO IMPORTANT GUYS!!!!
Once you’re signed up and logged in, check out this link in order to opt into the email that will get you the code at the very bottom of the page:
I don’t think I did a good job explaining how to do this so here’s a sad little mini-tutorial
Step 1. Draw something. I find its best to use this process when the image has base colours and some shadows but you can do it at the end or close to the beginning, depends really.
Step 2. Open it in photoshop and select your preferred channel, this will cause the image to go into greyscale depending on the channels values. Click the little box at the top by RGB to view all the colours once you’ve selected your channel.
Step 3. Go to the filter menu and select the blur option. I prefer gaussian blur. Tweak till you’re happy and/or achieve the desired effect.
Step 4. Paint over that shit.
You can also just pull the alpha channel to get the stereoscopic effect like in the end example, be careful because this can make your image look quite blurry.
