I released my big pixel font under the Open Font License! 19k+ characters with full Hangul and good Chinese/Japanese support in addition to a hefty set of European characters.
It's meant for pixel art games to make localisation easier, but you're welcome to use it for anything you like.
Download the TTF file and view additional notes if you're curious:
Very proud to have Kingdom Ka be a part of Itch.io's already immensely successful Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality, alongside so many indie-greats.
Anyway pay your artist for the gargantuan task of converting stuff like "Dawn. Overhead crowd scene. Monster suddenly appears from below their feet" into something exciting that explodes off the page and hooks an audience haha
Anyone around with experience swimming in tannin-heavy (dark) lakes/ponds? Does the water sting your eyes?
I recall some discomfort from when I swam in such water as a child, but I haven't done a lot of swimming since and it's possible it was just the same as low-tannin/"light" water and I just tolerated it better when I was older.
(This is just writing research, nothing deep.)
'Okay illustrators and designers! Here are some tweets about resources that people would like more infographics of.
Pick a tweet about a resource below and draw it! Make sure it's sized and composed to current social media dimensions. There's always more we can be doing.'

Two Funds Named for Nina Pop and Tony McDade Provide Free Therapy Sessions for Black Transgender Folks
Just backed The Cork on KS. Their tiers are tl;dr and confusing but the game looks great, and I hope they manage to pull through in these last couple of days! It's a Souls-esque metroidvania with super low-res pixel art. The $10 tier includes a copy of the game.
Art tip/PSA because I keep hearing about people accidentally inking on their sketch layer:
Use a darker colour for sketching, and then set the layer's opacity lower. That way you still get a light colour for your sketch, but you'll instantly know when you're inking on the sketch layer without having to lock the sketch layer.
What can you (ESPECIALLY you white ppl) do today to help build an antiracist future? Can you protest? Donate to a bail fund? Educate yourself or share resources? Every bit helps!

Hey there, I'm Jess!
I'm mainly a traditional artist who dabbles in digital art. I love watercolour and coloured pencils but I'll use pretty much any art supply because new things are fun.
I also dabble in comic art and hope to get back to it properly someday!
While not arting I mostly play video games. You'll see a lot of ESO fanart here because it's my main MMO!
New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.
Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.
It will take some work.
If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.
Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.
I made the webcomic Black Dram! When I'm not working on comics, I'm probably making pixelarty games.
