Yes, the newsletter sums up the recent updates for almost 4k subscribed members. And everyone gets the same updates, it's just a matter of how soon you want to get them.
The fun thing for those who have Myspace and DA is that they get first hand and exclusive everything I do the second I upload new things there. I'm *still* working on files to get on Myspace and I'm working on more art for DA. The members of each community get to fully participate (post comments on art, ask me specific questions, request more stuff, comment on blogs, etc) and get first dibs on these things.
Regardless of this, even if you are NOT a member in any of those places I provided the links so you can go and lurk around
As I update more things, I will mention it here too for the forum folks who don't have DA or Myspace. The profiles are public so I hope you don't have any troubles seeing or reading blogs there. If so, feel free to comment about it so we can help you.
And lastly, for those who are not regulars forum members and might not even get to see this thread, they will get all the updates gathered up in the newsletter when it gets out.
If you want to get to see things first hand but you're not a member there, I suggest you to check the forums and check the links when I post them. Otherwise you will be notified of all the updates once we send the newsletter.
But as I mentioned, forum members usually get the information first hand most of the time. But some people hate to be reading forums 24/7 so that's when the newsletter is rather useful.
