ArtStudio is just too good not to leave a review for. I’ve been using Photoshop on my PC for drawing, photo editing, and professional work for the past six years and when I finally got an iPad with Apple Pencil support I was really hoping Procreate or one of the numerous other drawing/editing apps would be able to replace the feel of PS. Unfortunately, even though Procreate is indeed an amazing drawing program, it still doesn’t really satisfy my need for the familiar feel of photoshop and drawing with photoshop brushes. ArtStudio Pro solved all my problems. It’s got everything you could need and MORE (I especially love their amazing smoothing/line weight algorithm and pressure customization). It’s basically Photoshop, but without having to pay the ridiculous Adobe subscription every month. The price for this app is perfect, in my opinion (and honestly it’s even a bit low, for all it’s able to accomplish) and I really want to give a huge thank you to everyone who worked on/is working on this app and updating it. You’ve saved me so much money and frustration. Hats of to you!

Unreal Engine 4 – Creating Retro Pixels
30 September, 2016

The team behind Ira indie video game has released a tutorial on creating retro pixels in Unreal Engine 4. The process was explained by Zach, one of the creators of the action-adventure project.

He explained how to make any project look retro by scaling the pixelization. Zach created a new material, double-clicked it and opened it in a separate tab. First he went down to material properties and made sure that it wasn’t a surface but a post-process shader. Iras creator then added a Screen Position and a ComponentMask to the material, as well as a Multiply node. It was also necessary to create a Scaler Parameter node and set its default value to 300. Next he added a Floor node, connected it with Scaler Parameter and the Multiply node.

Another Floor node was added and connected with Multiply. Both Floor nodes were then tied to the Divide node. The next step was adding a Scene Texture to the material. It was connected to the Divide and the Emissive Color parameter. In order for this to work the Scene Texture features had to be changed from “Scene Color” to “posed process input 0”. Zach then applied the shader to the scene via the Post-Process tool. It allowed regulating the size of pixels.

Ira is an independent action-adventure video game in development at Ore Creative. The games first act Pilgrimage will tell a story of a young boy who travels into outer space. His journey will take him away from a home on a farm to Mars. He will travel there in a cryogenic capsule. The protagonist will search for the source of an unexplained signal. Ore Creative is an indie game studio located in South East Michigan.

There is already a playable demo on Steam. Ira is set for a February 2, 2017 release on Windows and Mac OS x.
