Very sweet post on WLF and design contests. You'll note that new addition to the MFA also has a ton of DOTA 2 designs! Which I can tell by the WLF main page that DOTA 2 is a huge part of the future of WLF. It's all about following the trends and peepin' at the top sellers. And also entering into many pop culture sites contests and doing freelance to build up a portfolio. Don't put all your eggs in one basket! ~As they say. ^_~
Thanks! Yup, been noticing DoTA2 seems to be their hottest property at the moment, and they’ve since added many new MFAs who look prolific in it. The heyday of MLP is just over for WLF; the vinyl figures still appear to sell very well, so those remain viable, but shirts seemingly not so much. Oh well.
I’m well-established in web dev, so I was never really looking to MFA to support my career, but it’s certainly nice to have work I can show off as licensor approved merch art. :)
