I've decided to extend a variation of my Patreon $10 tier to my regular interactors (if we often have conversations on my posts, your posts or someone else's posts, or you upvote me at least semi-regularly, then this means you), and anyone I recognise from the TeamAustralia Discord channel and the Be Awesome Discord channel.
What is this $10 tier? Well, as older followers may know and newer followers perhaps not, I'm working on a 3d animation series (pretty much by myself because I'm insane like that, but am I really by myself when I have so much moral support? :D and also it's technically part of a much, much larger project with a lot more stories still coming, it's just that I happened to finish the scripts for this one first). At some stage, I'm going to need background characters, and while I was about it I thought why not include the fashion designers, architects, landscape designers, vehicle designers, and anything else I haven't thought of yet XD
What's the variation? Unlike Patreons you don't get the stuff in the preceding tiers, sorry ;D
Edited to add this explanation seeing as apparently I failed at being clear the first time!
This thing is a reward on my Patreon for the people who want to subscribe $10/mth. The way my tiers work is that if you subscribe at a high tier you are also eligible for the rewards in the lower tiers.
A lot of people are constantly giving me a lot of moral and upvote support here, so I wanted to offer this to them too. Patreon uses the term "reward", in this case it's more "please accept this as a humble thank you for all your support" with the added bonus of I get some things I needed anyway :D
Even shorter and clearer
If we interact regularly you can ask me for one and it won't cost you anything except however much time was required to talk to me about it XD
So, if you have a character (which can totally be a self-insert if you like) that you'd like to see 3d'd and running around somewhere in the background of my animation series (whenever I get around to completing it, there is no estimated completion time as I'm also restricted to working on this thing maybe 1-2hrs per day, longer if I'm lucky and on weekends and public holidays), or a fashion line various characters could show off, or some interesting park designs, or anything that could contribute to the scenery, I'd love your ideas. Drop me sketches, designs, photos, links to posts with ideas, whatever. I'll 3d them up at some stage and send you a blend file.
You retain all copyrights and whatnot, your stuff is still your stuff, you're just letting me use them :)
Now if you want to be a character, what kind of characters do we have in AER-verse? Well there's a variety of different types of humans, or you could be another animal if you like, but I haven't done bases for anything else yet so that'll take longer again. Of the humans we have:
which is also the base for the Evolved. The Base are humans like you would expect humans to be. The Evolved are humans who have some features of another terrestrial animal (commonly ears, tail and fur), but they're definitely more human than other animal (unlike my 85%s).
As the name suggests, they're humans with bird wings and tails, and they can fly.
More flying humans with horns, bat wings and tails that have something on the end of them (the base model doesn't have horns or tail appendages as I sculpt them per character).
I haven't done bases for these yet but you have Selkies which range from people like these
to a more stereotypical half human half cetacean, and Nereids
which are fishy (gills and vertical tails).
Did you manage to make it down this far? XD
Let me know if you'd like to be a character or would like a character included, or something else, or know a guy who knows a guy, ask me questions, whatever. Either down in the comments or on Discord.
Thanks for looking! ^_^
