Happy New Year, folks~
No need for a 2020 recap. It was productive, but also exhausting.

I started uploading my doodles on Instagram, including my recent Inktober sketches, which up until now I didn't know how to use or what to make of it (spoiler alert: I still don't). Hopefully, this will encourage me to share more of my random scribbles to all of you beautiful peeps.

Hey, everyone. I hope you're doing great.
I'm putting the Liminal series to rest for now in order to make space for more exciting projects. I would like to thank everyone who actively participated in the daily unveiling of the video series by commenting and sharing their feedback. It truly means the world to me.
This next project is something special. I have been willing to do something collaborative for a long time and have waited for an opportunity to announce it publicly. I would like this to ideally be the starting point for future community activities and make them a regular occurrence here in the Dawn-verse.
I would like to introduce a new album series called the Dream series. It's essentially a soundtrack to a game that does not physically exist, and each track represents a music file that would play in this imagined dream-themed video game. So, where does the cool part come in? I would like the community to listen to each track and depict what it means to them and what they see in it.
For every Dream album, I would ask you to freely express what images the music conjures up in your head through a 1920 x 1080 illustration, of any artstyle. Once everyone is done producing their part, I will then make a full album video showcasing each artwork related to the track that inspired it with on-screen credits. Further crediting like a personal portfolio website will likely appear in the video description under the individual artist's request.
I think this is a great opportunity to display some new talent and create an ever-expanding handcrafted gallery of wildly imaginative places using abstract audio as a prompt.
If you'd like to be part of the first Dream album (or even future albums, why not), come join our Discord and look for the #art text channel to experience the production process firsthand, get access to the music for inspiration and read the submission guidelines. Rest assured no money will be made off your artwork and further details can be found in the music folder I'll link in the Discord server.
That is all for now. Stay tuned for the album release as soon as the artwork is finalized and thanks for your attention.

I have recently uploaded some of the images I used for my on-going YouTube "Liminal" series to the Art portal, only to have them pulled off the platform a handful of hours later. Apparently, Newgrounds does not like photography, unless it depicts handmade works you make yourself. Realizing it was an overlook on my part, I would like to apologize for the inconvenience. I will upload those pictures somewhere else. They will be on my Discord for now.
Thanks for your support and stay tuned.

I've been rethinking a couple of things regarding the creation of audio assets for games. In the past few years, I have experimented with various marketplaces just to test the waters and experience the novelty of selling my audio to whoever needed it. Five plus years ago was still a different Internet, and the more some places grew in size, the more I saw my own content being put on the sideline.
I have therefore decided to start over from scratch, but with my own rules and pull all the content I originally created for the Unity Asset Store and Audiojungle from those websites. I will repackage them, improve them, and make that the starting point for the creation of new asset packs aimed towards any aspiring content creator and game developer working on a shoestring.
I will likely spread them over itch.io and some other marketplaces that I will link as soon as I'm done doing all the prep work for the relaunch. Licensing terms will also be updated accordingly.
Last but not least, I deleted my Soundcloud. One less dead weight to worry about.

I wasn't planning on releasing a new Rust album any time soon, but this one's quite special to me, as it was recorded and produced during the quarantine. As always, special thanks to anyone who tuned in for the premiere and I hope you guys are safe wherever you may be.
