In this week's episode of the podcast we dive into the discussion of the length and price of video games

First batch of monthly "consultations" is a go!

Been having a lot of fun getting back into directly spending a ton of time with people and helping them out in whatever way I can and I can tell you that I've really missed this feeling of helping people in such a direct way. I've been also having fun with how to structure this and have been inspired by the mentees both in their work and their planning for the "meeting" itself, it's been really amazing so far and I'm happy that people pushed me to do this once again.

Apart from all the other stuff I've been doing is I've been spending more and more time working on personal work again, currently working on adding the elements that I need to make this a believable space.

Enjoy the pictures!

Another awesome piece brought to you by our weekly vote on Patreon! This time we'll talk about the work that Oleh Koz did on this piece, which is a really nice way to tie this into the weekly tip about balancing details versus area's of rest.

It's such a nice example for creating a nice balance between these elements, and then adding to is that is show off the scale really nicely with the birds and stairs added to it. So really nice job on this piece Oleh, thanks for being a source of inspiration!

All right people!
