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.
So far, I've rated 5 of the games out of the 120 submitted. Competition is fierce! There are a few which I played and thought "Well, at least my submission is better than this one." but there's at least one which is far better than mine (at least by my judgement.) Trying very hard to rate games fairly and only comment when I have something constructive to say. Good luck everyone!
