This video demonstrates some basic features of IIcharacter software, alpha version. You can DOWNLOAD THE GENERATOR here: http://yadi.sk/d/7Xqi-_i84zUAO

Q: What the hell is this?
A: Anime character generator. You can generate character sprites using free (mostly licensed under CC licenses) parts. You can select layers, recolor things, crop and resize your image. Result can be exported as transparent png, or even automatically inserted into RenPy ( http://renpy.org ) game script.

Q: What platforms are supported? Is it Windows only?
A: Windows, MacOS and Linux builds are all avaliable for download. IIcharacter uses RenPy as a crosplatform framework.

Q: Why do anyone would need this?
A: It may be a good source of sprites and templates for amateur visual novels creators, or just for people who want to create an anime avatar picture at a forum.

Q: Is it better then KHmix 1st Edition ( キャラクターなんとか機 )?
A: It's up to you to deside. Original idea was to create a software that allows to select only details that perfectly fit each other. Other good features of IIcharacter are layer grouping, flexibility of adding new layers, colors and stuff as easy as just renaming files and creating folders. It is also cross-platform and comes with lots of bundled graphics.

Q: Are there any other cool features?
Yes, some characers have blinking eyes and RenPy code can be generated to use them.

Q: Have you drawn all this pictures by yourself?
A: No, I'm not an artist at all (in fact, not really a good python coder too, hehe). Artists are atributed near character set name. Licenses are displayed too, if known.

Q: Do you need any help with this project?
A: Yes, I need translators and someone who would like to write any documentation for it. You can send bugreports too.

Q: I want to add my anime art to your awesome project. Can I do it?
A: You are welcome! Contact me: lolbot_iichan@mail.ru

Q: What music is playing in the video?
A: "Dragon Dance Original Version Suite" by Butterfly Tea ( http://www.jamendo.com/en/track/48789... )

Q: Why is it so %s? Why there is no %s?
A: It is still an alpha version. Also, it is open source, so you can fork it or send a patch which makes it better. You can even write your own modules for it to do stuff like even more specific export.

Q: How do you feel about this release?
A: A lot of work was done in those several years for grouping, translating and renaming layers. IIcharacter is more about character sets that I have gathered and presented to english speaking people, not about program which allows to use it.
