Hello! Just had a look at your portfolio; you're an outstandingly talented artist, sir. Not sure why I haven't seen you before, but it's cool - I'm here now.

I've been thinking about page views in relation to artistic skill recently, and how they don't always reflect the ability of the illustrator; you are certainly one of these people. To be honest, it makes me question my own style and artistic journey, and whether I'm really worthy of the attention I've recieved. Maybe one day I'll find out whether I'm as good as I think I am, or whether it's all false.

Anyway, great work - loving your art technique! :nod:

Thank you for the kind words! I'm happy you discovered me!

As far as visibility goes, skill's important too, but marketing and visibility seem to be more tightly linked than I had thought. And admittedly I'm pretty bad at it, hahaha! Hey, don't worry about "deserve" or "worthy," just enjoy what you got! It's not a zero sum game, and you're not taking away from others by doing well. Live it up!

Have a good one!

No problem, and thank you! Your words ring true; once an artist learns to appreciate what they have, and how far they've come, they become better for the experience. :nod:

And, thank you! Happy New Year to you! :D

I hope you will consider the possibility,with that said,please do what you think its best for the developement of your game and dont be swayed by what other people say.
Cerebrawl looks really impressive,i wqanted to know if you plan to make a second crowdfunding campaign after you are able to release a polished demo version of the game to the various streamers and youtubers to get exposure.

Sure thing! I'll give it some more thought. Thanks for the feedback!
And thank you for the kind words. For the moment, I'm going to focus on making Cerebrawl the best game I can!
