✨ Friesian Update
Friesians now have new art! Solo knows we love a long mane and some feathering! All Friesians in game have been updated with the new art.
🌄 New Background
With the release of new Friesian art we now have a new background inspired by the Drents-Friese Wold National Park from Friesland. The background includes park wildlife, Highland cattle, and the famous heather.
Our employees in the construction store now have new updated images! Ibbit has done a wonderful job giving them a new style.
💎 Mine Minerals
The mine minerals now have new art! Our place holder art is retiring and our new art by Elz is now added. All 7 minerals have their own unique look! Have you found them all yet? What do you think they’ll be used for?

... the new female employees seemed to be anorexic. No good idols for young girls. :-(
I don't like them.

Kobold, The employees play a very small role on the site but future art involving people is already planned for greater representation. The employees images are done in the artists style while future ones will be done with greater specifics from the dev team.

Oh my gosh, the Friesian art is to die for. They're so beautiful! <3

@ Kobold, they are not anorexic. Their bodies are identical to mine and my doctor said I am in a healthy range. Just because they aren't curvy/chubby/etc doesn't automatically mean they are anorexic. Please be careful with accusing people of being anorexic. It can cause a lot of harm to a healthy girl's self-confidence/independency/health. In high school, I can't even go to the bathroom (a basic human right) during/after lunch break because the staff believed those cruel kids who accused me of being anorexic. If I really need to go, a female staff will escort me to make sure I am going to the bathroom not to vomit. I know someone who starts to overeating so she can gain weight so she can fit in (and be able to go to the bathroom in peace). She succeeded but she also has developed additional permanent health problems when she's older (such as diabetes and severe depression). Body positivity is not just for overweight girls, but it is also for everyone (including men). A healthy child shouldn't be shamed and bullied for being healthy. They definitely deserve to go to the bathroom in peace. A child with an actual problem like anorexic needs real help such as counseling and bullying will make it harder for them to come forward and get the help they need.
Sorry for going on a rant but this anorexic comment brought back those horrible memories from my time in high school.
My minerals look gorgeous! Quartz and Garnet are my favorite right now!

As always, Solo's art updates are amazing! I can't wait to buy some of the new backgrounds. Bet they will look lovely with my cobs.

Who did the background artwork? We know Solo did the horse, Ibbit did the workers, and Elz did the gemstones. I always wondered who did those gorgeous backgrounds!

Our background artist is Myphu. They've done work for Attack on Titan and several other animes and movies. They always blow us away with their work. :)

Woah! That's amazing!! It's no wonder that the style is familiar to me! I really love that style and I can't wait to see more backgrounds in the future!
