what if we want feed back on a pix person but don't know where to post it... like im coloring on gimp for the first time, and i really need the experts to show me where i am going wrong so i can improve my artwork..but i don't know where really to post it so i can get that much needed feed back.. so really is the academy only in session when there's a event going on or is it a all purpose learner place?
You could always post it in the Resource WIP topic in the General Resource forum. If there isn't a section for that here then you'll find the feedback there, sometimes people would do edits or point you in the right direction.
Learning about how trademark works for game titles has given me new understanding about another reason why AAA developers/publishers sometimes reveal new games as "Project XXX" as a working title instead of the actual title. The cutthroat world of trademarks and IP trolls gets rougher every year as the pool of available titles for (legally safe) use shrinks due to the limitations of language.
It's been a long time since I was here but I have a lot of updates... btw I am teaching again about game programming and game design in some schools here in Brazil hahahaha It's good to see kids and teens learning this kind of thing!
