Earlier this year, the kickstarter community helped me back my very first printed comic, ERA: Convergence! I still can't thank everyone enough for their support!
So now I'm happy to announce my second kickstarter! :) The next chapter of ERA continues!
This is the printed version of my comic, ERA: Ibuki, which is a story which takes place before my previous 'kickstarted' story, ERA: Convergence.
It is partially free to read on Manga Magazine! You can preview most of it there, or log in and read more! :)
It's a full color, 250+ page,digital story. If this project is funded, it will be printed in a 8.25"x5.5" landscape book format split into
TWO 164 page books!
I plan on adding a lot of extra material for everyone to enjoy as well, such as additional art, story, process and sketches, and a fanart section :)
GENRES: Scifi, Manga influenced, Drama, Tragedy
WARNING: Unlike my previous story which was funded through kickstarter, (ERA: Convergence) ERA: Ibuki is much more serious with blood and language warnings.
Here are all the different rewards I'm offering for the pledges :)
A two sided, chibi Ibuki keychain!
Clyde (below) is a character who shows up for just a brief moment in the story... but he's been a fan favorite already! So I'll be supplying posters of him with Ibuki. I suppose everyone can already make guesses as to how he's important in Ibuki's life in the next story. :)
Your name will be credited in both books! :)
A digital PDF of both books to be viewed on digital devices or on the computer!
See above for poster selections! :)
See above for poster selections! :)
Just the printed and signed version of volume one! But the Digital PDF will have the entire story, so either way, you can still read the whole story! :D
The reader's package! Just the printed versions will be sent to you! :)
Ah! I'm so sorry I forgot this tier :( Here's the Reader's package with a poster!
The next few pledges include ERA: Convergence, which was also funded through Kickstarter! (ahh thank you guys!!) All three books are printed and signed :)
I sometimes dabble with Pixel Art! Here's an example!
You'll receive a transparent digital file of the pixel sprite!
A colored sketch commission will be done with traditional markers and ink :) I'll draw any character of your choice either: chibi, or a headshot, ... or even as a cute cat! Sketch card example:
A digital art commission will be a semi-detailed drawing. I'll draw any one character with a background and color it! You'll receive the digital file, AND i'll print out a printed version for you along with the rest of the posters! (P.S. I do not draw blood, gore, anything rated above PG13 XD )
Have any pledge suggestions? Let me know! :)
$5 - Adding on $5 to your pledge will get you the Chibi Ibuki Keychain! These are for those tiers that don't already include the keychain, but would still like it :)
$8 - Adding on $8 to your pledge will get you the Hi-RES PDF version of ERA: Convergence! For those of you who are buying the printed version of Convergence, you will get the HI-RES PDF included with the pledge at no extra cost!
$15 ADDITIONAL POSTERS - Adding $15 will get you an additional poster of your choice!

Risks and challenges
Getting something printed is one of the most hectic things ever. That being said, I've worked as a production artist and a graphic designer for the last 7 years of my life, so I'm hoping that I'll have the ability to get a book printed independently with ease! I learned even more about printing from my last book, so I hope to overcome any further challenges that come my way.
I hope to also create some extra content for the book as well! But I'm confident that squeezing in all this extra work won't be a problem for me!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
