I was very sad to read that the artist Ania Kryczkowska has left the project.

Her art was a big reason why I backed the project. The sample art from the new art team, The Creation Studio, looks very good, so credit to Tristan on finding such capable replacements to take over the job and for wanting to continue Ania's artistic direction for the project. The sample art has lessened my disappointment considerably.

The lesson to me is that in future I will not back a Kickstarter based partly on the artist.

Looking at all the art Ania did for Gloom of Kilforth, it did look like a very hefty artistic burden to me.

I hope we see Ania back in boardgames soon. Ditto Fernanda Suarez, who has left Plaid Hat's Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn project. Though in the case of Ashes, it does give me strength to get out of the game while there are still pennies left in the bank. I just could not resist her art!



Good luck to Ania, I'll be keeping an eye out for her work.

Taken from the latest update on Kickstarter:

"The pace of producing such high quality games is hugely intensive and unfortunately became too much for Ania Kryczkowska, who has been juggling other projects and personal issues which have taken greater priority for her. As a result of these issues Ania has regrettably chosen to leave our project..."

Yes, her work on this game is so cool, and all her work and style will definitely add greatly to the final product, even if some of the images are from the new team.

Sad to hear, but understandable, any artist has only so much time and energy.

I hope, though, that the art she has already completed will still be featured in the finished game. I would prefer this, with some cards showing a different style, than to lose out on her work altogether. She is a genuine talent.

Cheers guys, we're disappointed Ania has chosen to move on too, but luckily our new team of artists are just as fantastic. You can see their work in our latest update here:

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1894212/1066-tears-many-mot...

And yes, we'll still be using the art we've already paid for too.

Yup, that looks just as good. Gyrth is channeling his inner Kylo Renn tho.

It's sad to see Ania leave the project, she has done some absolutely fantastic work on GoK and what we have seen so far of 1066.

But wish her all the best with her future endeavours and hope to see her art appear elsewhere.
