Do you guys think that 3d rendering an image to look like pixel art counts as pixel art? submitted by Clasm to pixelart

MrSpeaker 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago

I think if done well it can look quite nice and certainly very interesting. It'd result in that very-smooth, almost rotoscoped look to animations. Or if you went all solid-colours you'd be able to emulate the visuals of Starfox pretty easily.

I wouldn't suggest mixing it with a lot of traditional pixel-art, though. The styles would clash and be very obvious. Sort of like when some cartoons in the last decade used 3D for cars and the such. They often looked really out of place because of how perfectly shaded, on-model, and smoothly animated they were compared to everything else.

Free alternatives to wanikani for learning kanji and vocab? submitted by bobbertson to Learnjapanese

I've been using kanjidamage.com in combination with a "kanji damage" course on memrise. It's been pretty useful so far. The course sometimes uses slightly different translations to the kanji damage ones; but as you learn your vocab you quickly learn which of the interpretations is the more accurate.

In the last 3-4 months I've covered about 1070 kanji/radicals and can still remember a good 95% of them. The last 5% gets brushed up pretty regularly through memrise if I keep forgetting them. Provided you at least review everything once a day. (got an 85 day streak so far)

Oh yeah. You'll probably want to ignore the pronunciation sections as you get up to them.

Memrise isn't really designed for that sort of thing so you can often get every single possible pronunciation for a kanji and have them all correct. But it marks you down because it wanted them in a different order.

I've actually found that as I learn vocab I start to pair words up with the kanji I know as I go along anyway. The pronunciations are kinda meaningless if you don't already know the words they're part of.

This is really neat. Thank you.

Is it just the one news type channel?

I only just noticed the schedule on the page.

Seems very useful for a bit of immersion while I'm eating dinner or working on other stuff.

The edited version of Genki 1 with a heap of romanji stripped away is super-useful.
