Sometimes on OGA people have made posts where they simply took somebody else's existing art and re-formatted it for use with particular engine tools. It's a shame there's not more of that, IMO; that kind of thing will be useful to game creators, since often art creators only have experience with a tiny number of the tools that are out there, and won't necessarily post their art in the format that is easiest for a would-be game creator to use.

@Redshrike It happened 7 years ago now, but @Manveru accepted your request to make "Dorver" available under CC-BY for this collection...

@geraldm-vlog It's CC-BY SA (see left panel). AFAIK that means you can use it however you like, as long as you credit the source using the attribution instructions given in the text, and as long as - if you make any modifications to it - you share those under the same license.

That is looking quite cool.

That doesn't happen for everyone. You would be unlucky if it happened for you :-( It could be that for some people, the two skills compete for the use of the same part of the brain. There is a lot of individual variation in how people learn skills! It's possible that could be happening to you, but it doesn't seem very likely.

Generally the limit for the things you can be good at is just the limit on the amount of stuff that you can do regularly. There are only 24 hours in a day and most of those are already taken up with the basics of just being alive, so there's only so much stuff that you can regularly practice. If you don't do something for a while then you will get "rusty" on it and lose some skill. However, for most people, with something which they have once really gotten into and gotten good at, if they come back to it after years of not doing it, they will start "rusty" but then they will fairly quickly get back to the skill level that they were at previously. I've gone years without doing art sometimes.

How expensive is it to create an NFT from a piece?

If the cost isn't significant, then somebody is right now running a crawler bot which is making NFTs of every file that it can find on the web. Also, all sites (especially ones like OpenGameArt) will eventually run code that automatically NFTs everything uploaded to it.
