Ninjacrayon is going through changes

For a long time I've been writing a bunch of tutorials as Ninjacrayon, showing people how to use mostly video animation and editorial software.  I'm going to be showcasing a lot more mobile graphic tools and social media tools soon.

So my site is down while I come up with a new branding that helps to fit my new evangelism of all things moving (and 3D), but I'm still around and on twitter as @ninjacrayon

DAX Short term Elliott Wave Chart

There are two other possible scenario with DAX. Another scenario is the move from 3/22 low is unfolding as an Impulse Elliott wave structure instead of a zigzag. This scenario can happen if the current move higher gets extended to 1.618 extension (12251). In this case, we can label the move to 12130.5 as Minutte wave (i), the pullback to 11942.5 can be labelled as Minutte wave (ii) and the move higher to 12251 (at least) can be counted as Minutte wave (iii). In an impulse scenario, the Index…

DAX Elliott Wave View: Short term top near

The move higher in DAX from 3/22 low is proposed to be unfolding as a zigzag Elliott Wave structure where the first leg Minutte wave (a) is subdivided in a 5 waves impulse Elliottwave structure and the third leg wave (c) is also subdivided into a 5 waves impulse Elliottwave structure. It’s not a good time to chase long in the Index at this stage as Index has reached short term inflection area where cycle from 3/22 low can end and a 3 waves pullback at minimum can be…

Consol Energy Elliott Wave Analysis

CNX has a bullish sequence from January 2016 low as it rallied in 5 waves forming a leading diagonal in wave A which ended on 12/08/2016. From there it started doing wave B pullback to correct that cycle in a double three Elliott wave structure which missed equal legs area $14.41 by few points.

The cycle from the peak is mature and have enough number of swings in place to call it completed , so with a break above the descending trend-line we can have a confirmation that wave B is already…

What's new in your world?

Just wondering how everyone is doing and tell me about your favorite equipment. I moved away for 3 years to Georgia but am going to the Bullhead City Arizona area in a few weeks.  I have not done much for a few years because I got Liver disease. But the liver was bypassed with a shunt on it. So I have gone from wheelchair bound to completely normal now. The liver will never be functional but I don't even notice anymore! Hurray!

Video Game developer

Now, I had managed to get a custom-made character animated, and moving. It's a trivial accomplishment for those in the gaming industry but it was a big deal for me.

Had I been told at the start of this year that I would soon be working as a programmer, I would not have believed it.

And now I had figured out how to move a character. The simple job required putting together the artistic work of my team using the Unity Game Engine — a software that automates the game’s…

Yes, India has the potential to organise such a big events. But before that, we need to improve our infrastructure, transportation facilities, security facilities. The biggest drawback in India is corruption that's why hosting Olympic is just a dream for us.

So to fulfill the dream of hosting Olympic we need to think for our country instead of…

What are you working on?

I've been working on creating a syllabus to teach a new generation of designers, animators, and to some extent editors.  Lately, I've been playing around on my iPad... a lot.  Not because there are some fun games, but because there are some great applications that can either help to supplement or replace some of my desktop/laptop gear.

Generally, I use my iPad strictly for scribbling down ideas.  Although I also use a physical sketchbook, sometimes the mobile apps are really…
