Sorry guys, missed this. We'll credit the artist, sorry!

Technically, the artist needs to (and does) credit the author of the artwork he referenced and only mention what and where from the character is. Given that, this is a 3d/gaming/technical thingie-ma-jibs website that does not (and probably shouldn't really) reflect on the circumstance of the character itself, but concentrate on creation and techniques used in creation. The name of the character is referenced, but nowhere on the original art the name Sam Riegel is mentioned. As much as critter community is nice and welcoming, this part of "CREDIT THIS OR CREDIT THAT" irritates me. IMHO, Credit is given where credit is due. This 3d model was made with learning purposes only, whereas the original art is being sold. Instead of commenting "GIVE CREDIT" comment "COOL ART OF SAM'S CHARACTER" or "GREAT CRITICAL ROLE ART". All that said, this is an amazing rendition of the original artwork of the character of critical role. As a critter, I love both this piece and the idea of other critter being so talented! Peace, a member of the wonderful critter family.

Valve to Launch Steam Direct
13 February, 2017
News
Valve has decided to shut down Greenlight, Steam’s user-driven service for promoting small games. Independent developers will now have to use a solution called Direct to launch their projects. 

We will ask new developers to complete a set of digital paperwork, personal or company verification, and tax documents similar to the process of applying for a bank account. Once set up, developers will pay a recoupable application fee for each new title they wish to distribute, which is intended to decrease the noise in the submission pipeline.

Valve

Titles will now be admitted directly onto the store. Valve will check if there is a game at all, but there are no strict rules. Valve states that this step won’t lead to Steam becoming a flood of bad games. The current Steam algorithm will separate good titles from games that are not worth finishing. 

Greenlight also exposed two key problems we still needed to address: improving the entire pipeline for bringing new content to Steam and finding more ways to connect customers with the types of content they wanted.

Valve still has not figured out pricing. Developers might have to pay from $100 to $5,000.The company is working on collecting feedback for the best possible solution. 

Steam Direct will be launched this spring.
