WIP: Reconstructing/Re-Designing Aidan – Part 2 Re-working the Art Style for Diverse

Posted on July 2, 2017

It’s a series of charts that basically work in one of several possible ways: Auto Translate Translates the text you enter under main language to multiple languages. I treat these as pseudo translations only, as google translation barely takes context and grammar into consideration. Using these translations directly inRead More
