Hello, I'm featuring your new Broodmother set in an article I'm writing, and I was thinking of asking you if you might be adding more to it? I really think having spiderlings to go with this set would be wonderful! I dig it.

kheleksul Answer:

We’re considering adding spiderlings, it was originally part of the concept, but we were having troubles importing the spiderling in the game. We can give it another shot, though, if there’s enough interest in it. Thanks! <3

Fell, Oniongrump&#8217;s character. I had the honor of redesigning her. And after Dota cosmetics, for some reason, i think purple looks great with green. Maybe it&#8217;s because we all subconsciously love Barney.

Tumblr, meet Eva. She likes rolling on top of berries, throwing tennis balls into the air with her mouth to chase them, and wrestling with any dog she comes across.

This is also Zoey, my sister’s new kitten. Apparently this is not an accurate representation. <3 Only Zeros is left, I’ll make him his own little pixel when I have time.

An old friend of mine, Seage, has a really awesome style that I can&#8217;t duplicate (but then, I didn&#8217;t try particularly hard to copy it, i just wanted to steal elements). He&#8217;s an avid youtuber, check his stuff out! Watching some of his videos reminded me of a time when my art wasn&#8217;t so rigid, and i used approximate shapes to form suggestions of things instead of drawing everything flat out. It&#8217;s good to have a reminder every now and then!

gambitsandexploits: i’ve always been interested, what does the pro player help with in these sets?

Fly helped us develop the concept and direct the vision for the set. I came up with some sketches based on adjectives and descriptions of the kind of stuff Fly wanted to see for kotl, and my partners gave feedback on what was the most successful and what they liked. We went from there, bouncing the design around, adding new bits and editing out others, until we all settled on one we were happy with.

Due to the fast approaching deadlines, we ultimately had to make some compromises… but I hope everyone is satisfied with the final result!

Progress gifs! I always love looking at other artists&#8217; workflow, thought i&#8217;d share this. Sometime I&#8217;ll make and post one that isn&#8217;t a paintover of a screenshot, but that&#8217;s for another time.
