Hello and welcome to another edition of the MabsArts blog. Today I will be sharing my experience with you on how I became a seller on Fiverr, made a killing (for a while) and then almost got killed (not really) by a Hurricane. Let’s dive right in…
This blogpost is part of a series.

Part6: The First Fall
Part7: The Girl that took the money
Fast forward a couple of years and I’ve already made a second game with Meman32, “Planet Flyer” and even began work on a third game that was not released.
The Behemoth forum at the time was almost a subset of the Newgrounds community, with as many artists and animators in the forum, ready to provide feedback on your latest piece.
In their profile they had a link. This link had the text “I will do a 5 minute MS Paint drawing of anything you want for $5” They were also posting their art on the forum, and I was very excited to see what this link held.
It took me to a land of riches, of which I had never even dreamed of.
