Batman Arkham City Released Today!

So.. Batman Arkham City came out today for the XBOX 360 and PS3!!
SWEEEET!! I loved Batman Arkham Asylum. That was one of the best games I’ve ever played and made me a much bigger Batman fan :D

Unfortunately for me, I don’t have a 360 or PS3 so I have to wait for the release on WINDOWS, which doesn’t come out till November 8 (EID!!). I was thinking of pre-ordering the game a couple months ago but the PC version didn’t get Robin as exclusive pre-order package at Best Buy. But then… -__- to my surprise when I checked back a couple of days ago.. there he was.. ROBIN! Available for the PC version when you pre-order from Best Buy. The problem here was.. IT WAS SOLD OUT DAMMIT!! Then When I messaged them on Facebook and they responded and they were restocked! I was gonna buy last night but I didn't have a credit card and my debit wasn't being accepted. I checked today.. and BAM! Robin is no longer available for pre-order :(

Oh well... I guess I'll just have to DLC it. Also Nightwing is apparently going to be DLC for the PC version as well. So sweet on them for letting PC gamers get the little extra goodies as well has the console versions (cause usually PC gets shit).

Toon Boom Studio 4.5 Tutorial - Glow

So a lot of people ask me to do tutorials.. I don't really know how or what to do. Some people ask about the glow effects I do. It's quite simple really. However; the problem with it is that you can only have circles and rectangles that have teh glow effect. The effect doesn't look so good on the rectangles though cause they are cut off; so a way to go around that is to use semi-circles. I can show how to do that later. But for now, we will make a glowy circle like energy balls (like the ones used in DBZ (ki blasts)).

So to start off, open up Toon Boom Studio and make a new colour by clicking the PLUS sign.
Then click the colour pallete next to the plus sign.
Select gradient and chose radial. The left colour is the inside and the right colour is the outside.
Chose white for the inside and the glow in this case will be a light blue so pick the colour you wish to use.
Now you want to add a couple more colours into the slider so click the white slider and click right beside it to make a new one. Do the same for the blue colour.
 Now move the two blue colours to the left side and make the furthest right colour at Alpha 0 so it's completely transparent. That will give the glow effect to the blue colour beside it.

Now close the colour picker. In the drawing view, make a circle and fill it in with the colour then remove the circle outline so you are left with just the fill. Open the colour picker window again and play around with the sliders till you get the look you are happy with.
