comment What is the characters style in these Japanese games called?
Well, I can't really help you nail what style this is any more than I have. I think you'll have to track down whoever the artists behind the originals are as it might be specific to them. In any case, learning how to draw/model similar characters is a matter of 1) learning the software to do it and 2) copying till you get it right. It could be that there is some super specific tutorial for it somewhere but the closest I think you'll get in that regard is a "how to draw chibi characters" guide. From there you're on your own.

comment What are these line and dot graphs called?
I suppose these could be called a lot of things as they are used for different things: constellations, star maps, node maps, etc etc. The real question is what you need them for? Are you seeking to replicate the style for something specific?

Not exactly sure what your scope is. But if we're looking for the lowest common denominator between the two pictures above I'd say the style is manga, both hinting at chibi styles. That's still very, very broad, are you looking for something more specific? What exactly about the characters is it that you find similar?

Are you saving it to PNG-8 or PNG-24?

comment PSD to HTML&CSS - my margins are wrong
Even though there might be an actual cause behind this specific problem this answer is the better one in the grand scheme of things. Designing for pixel perfection in a medium as interactive and interchangeable as the web, especially in 2015 with the reign of responsive design, is only going to cause you headache.

comment Why does Photoshop call ppi “resolution”?
One thing I've seen some designers do is use the Resolution input box when designing for Retina displays. So instead of 72 they'd input 144. I suppose it might make the workflow a bit easier for some.

comment How Do I save Illustration as a Jpeg as it's normal size?
No it does not. My "underlying software" is not compressing my work to a lossy format of smaller dimension only to scale it back up, resulting in not only worse quality than when I started out but with the wrong dimensions as well. It's the worse option and it is not simpler. Sorry if I'm being a jerk but it's simply not the right answer.

comment Retain Blending Mode after saving to .svg? (Illustrator)
Well yes, but it's a bit more complicated than that to blend more than two elements. Basically, you have to define the "result" attribute of the previous blend and then use that for the first "in" attribute in your next one. Have a look at this beautiful example: codepen.io/chriscoyier/pen/tCykv

SVG actually does support blending modes in the file itself these days. See my answer.

comment Working CMYK or Document CMYK, what are the difference for color output in InDesign?
If I understand things correctly, working CMYK doesn't have any real effect on the way your document is ouput, it just changes the way it appears while you're working on it. As for the document color mode it would be CMYK in either case as you're designing for print.

comment How Do I save Illustration as a Jpeg as it's normal size?
Sorry, but that doesn't answer the root problem. If one designs with a certain format and certain dimensions in mind then that's the way it should be exported. Down-scaling your image after the fact to fit the paper format will give you the incorrect output. The simple solution is to do it correctly, not to cheat.

comment How Do I save Illustration as a Jpeg as it's normal size?
This sounds unnecessarily complicated. All he/she needs to do is change the size of the artboard to that of the A1 format (594 x 841mm) and resize/arrange the elements of the illustration to fit that format.
