LEVEL-DESIGN.org Portfolios on Spot Vol. 1

I wanted to return to an old LEVEL-DESIGN.org tradition of promoting talented artists and designers by showing you their work. Featuring portfolios in News Roundup series wasn't a good idea, it had no impact because lack of screenshots. Let me feature few images that show some of the greatest talents, their works and... get inspired! Check out LEVEL-DESIGN.org Portfolios on Spot Volume 1!

Each featured portfolio lands automatically on "LEVEL-DESIGN.org Featured Portfolios" page.
