Have you ever wanted to create a character of your own, but lack the means or artistic ability to do so? Well then, this is great news for you!
To put it in a nutshell, I'll be creating blank and in depth "templates" for others to customize to their liking- think of it like a colouring book, but with your fursona! These templates, or 'reference sheets' will include multiple character angles for good detail shots, optional close-ups of important appendages (such as tails, paws, etc), and different species variations included on separate layers (curly tails, floppy ears..). They will come in both high quality .PSD and MS paint-friendly files.
I will most likely be starting with a canine template since they are a more popular species, although higher-tier backers will have the ability to suggest or even choose what animal I ultimately end up rendering.
Excitingly enough, if this project gets enough steam going, I'll be able to do a whole series of templates that everyone has a say in! If the stretch goals are met, I'll be holding polls with suggested species and doing lineart of the most requested results.
Thank you for taking the time to look over this project, and if you have any questions about rewards or are looking for more in-depth details about the nature of what I'm doing, feel free to contact me and ask.
Risks and challenges
There are a few potential risks to the project, of which I'll address:
As I'm sure you're all aware, motivation is a large and arguably the most important part of the artistic process. It is a risk that, especially with the larger stretch goals, these works might take some time to complete. I am, however, ready to address this issue with weekly updates on my twitter: http://www.twitter.com/frindlesart
- Freak Circumstance
As the name would imply, this has a very small chance of happening but is still probable, so it's important to address here. It could happen that my graphics tablet decides that it does not want to work, or that my PC finally kneels on its last leg. I am equally as ready to tackle those issues if they arise, and they should not be more than a small detriment regardless.
Time is, however, not an issue at all, on the bright side of things. For that reason, I'm confident that I've addressed all potential discrepancies!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
