There’s also been many art releases (clothing, animations, backgrounds, character features) since then, but you can check them out in the portal. Don’t know if you’re interested in the contests that have been and gone.
Our artists have created additional facial features and hairstyles to help you portray a broader range of characters! In addition, they’ve also made a
