Now for Something Completely DifferentOctober 13, 2020 | Blog
I don’t usually draw people, but when I do, I stress about it for way too long. If I drew people more, it wouldn’t be such a big deal, but I don’t, so it is. I have a couple characters I want to flesh out, to add a human element to Survival Anxiety. Let’s see […]
