3 New Rewards ADDED!!

I have the opportunity to create SEVEN full color 11x14 drawings of the SEVEN non-humans races from the World of Ark. This is a Win/Win project. The success of this project (having all 7 non-human race funded) will afford the Publisher of World of Ark full color illustrations for their upcoming Cyclopedia. It will also allow the Artist to fair compensation and hold on to the rights of the illustrations.

As the Artist, I'm asking for $250 per drawing of each race. Each race will have an full color drawing with a male and a female represented for each race. Here's a list of the 7 non-human races of Ark;

  1. Aerkay
  2. Alven
  3. Dwarves
  4. Fhraen
  5. Goblins
  6. Lizardfolk
  7. Minotaur

All of these non-human races can be found in the Players Primer of Ark, which can be downloaded for FREE from RPGNOW.com

 Each additional non-human race drawing will be funded by reaching these sketch Goals:

Locked Sketch Goal #1 - will be unlocked at $500; which means I'll do a 11x14 full color drawing of the Alven.

 Locked Sketch Goal #2 - will be unlocked at $750; which means I'll do a 11x14 full color drawing of the Dwarves.

Locked Sketch Goal #3 - will be unlocked at $1000; which means I'll do a 11x14 full color drawing of the Fhraen .

Locked Sketch Goal #4 - will be unlocked at $1250; which means I'll do a 11x14 full color drawing of the Goblins.

Locked Sketch Goal #5 - will be unlocked at $1500; which means I'll do a 11x14 full color drawing of the Lizardfolk.

Locked Sketch Goal #6 - will be unlocked at $1750; which means I'll do a 11x14 full color drawing of the Minotaur.

If I hit my 3rd sketch goal, I will participate in the Kicking It Forward Movement http://kickingitforward.org

Each additional drawing will take up to 2 weeks to complete, which will place the entire project for completion by the end of February, 2015.

I'm proud to have the endorsement of World of Ark Creator; Anthony Edwards (also Founder & Owner of Ravenslore Press.) See video for verification.

What is a Limited Edition “Artist's Proof” print? When they run a set of prints, the Artist gets a set to distribute to “His/Her” Collectors. The “Artist's Proof” is always of greater value. I will only print a limited number of “Artist's Proofs,” equal to the final number of qualifying pledges. I will sign them on the back in this format

Kickstarter Testimonials:

"Kurt Brugel is an extremely talented fantasy artist. Glad to be part of his kickstarter program!" - Jane H.

"I have seen a creative process become more free from the beginning of the first kickstarter, until now. Pledging allows an artist the freedom to see the support of those known and unknown, and those expectations have produced some marvelous work. The evolution of that work from the first kickstarter to the second makes me really excited to see what's on the horizon." - Radhika M.

"I've backed a number of these type of projects, what I appreciate about Kurt's effort and I believe makes it worthy to advocate is the time he takes to post each day the progress of the artwork we are backing. I backed Kurt's last project - the final product was delivered on target to me. There is no question of the work that is being done or if you'll receive what is requested on time; you also know exactly what you getting." - Jason H.
