Your art videos are what pushed me to begin learning to draw. I remember heading out to buy a draw pad after finishing your video on how to draw monsters. It's a skill which has helped me immensely in my game dev journey.

Blackthornprod played a huge role in my game dev journey. They are really what made this hole world of programming finally click for me. They are self-taught developers so they understand the struggles and problems that beginners face. I would not be where I am today without them. I always recommend them to people who ask me where they can learn game dev and Unity.
