  1. Hi Onhax, I hope you have a great day. I visited your website when I was googling about Leonardo software, and it works great, thank you so much!

    I notice you have interest in “rare”/”not-so-popular”/”non-mainstream” softwares, just like Leonardo. If you don’t mind, I have 2 rare softwares that I want to recommend. These two, I cannot find anywhere yet. Maybe you can try to crack it, the names are:

    1. PaintStorm Studio (the windows version)

    * It’s a super good alternative software for drawing & painting.
    * Some websites only provide crack for the mac version (soft98*ir, p30download*ir, etc).

    2. Mental Canvas (windows version)

    * It’s one of the cool software out there to do some spatial 2d drawing in 3d. It’s just like Blender’s grease pencil, but more simple, fast, & focused.
    * It currently free with full-features, but for a limited time. I think this situation could benefit someone like you, to make the crack/patch/hack, since we can have the full-version of the software’s files. I don’t have any knowledge to preserve this condition when the limited-time expired. And we have to pay subscription (the thing I hate the most) to use this software, and no one-time/life-time purchase. I’m not using this software very often and I’m just a casual drawing hobbyist that like to explore concepts through drawing, not a professional that willing to pay the subscription.

    So that’s it my recommendations. I’m sure your website or any of your social channels can get quite a lot of traffic if you providing rare softwares consistently, instead of the mainstream one. Leonardo software is one of a good example, no other websites are providing it, neither the famous (dot)ir websites (like soft98, p30download, downloadly, softsaaz, persiangfx, etc). I also have send this recommendation to crackers like radixx, igorca, etc but currently no response.

    Also, I don’t know where to post any recommendation on your discord, I’m also new to discord btw.

    Cheers,

    -Guzman
