This is the final blow, guys! We have come to the end and we reached there with our goals fulfilled.

 I just want to say thank you to EVERYONE who made a contribution, no matter how little, whether it was backing the project or sharing it with your friends. The experience was wonderful: all this support, all this new good people I've met ...

Now it’s time for me me show you that all that effort wasn’t in vain! At the end of March everyone will receive their rewards, but since there are still a few months for that, I’ll be posting updates to make the wait worthwhile.

You did it!! Well done!! You revive the ancestral Hero Emaria! 

Emaria is Kalain,s good sister , blessed by the gods , has divine strength and extraordinary powers.

Although Emaria is really strong , Kalain is in his second form , perhaps if we continue re-tweeting and sharing the links below , we can make Emaria even more powerful.

"Don't forget Kalain. Gods never die"

Don't forget we are very close to reveal a new VERY SPECIAL stretch goal.


All you need to do is  Retweet this Tweet.

And Share and Like this Post.

Gathering the necessary energy we can make the Hero stronger will deal a big amount of damage to the Villain. He will preserve the peace in Asteroid being a part of the artbook... if he comes back.

Asteroid tells the story of a populated planetarian system suddenly visited by an enormous and mysterious asteroid which inevitable presence seems to have influence in the course of the history. Since its coming, each planet and each world is being driven into chaos, order or wilderness. 

Although everyone is aware that Asteroid is using the universe as a puppet, nobody knows where it came from or what its plans are.


Asteroid is my first watercolor artbook. Every character inside is an original design that belongs to Asteroid universe. In the book you will find 240 pages full of Heroes, Villains and Creatures. 

The book will be 17x24cm or 7x10in aprox
The book will be 17x24cm or 7x10in aprox
It will be a hard cover artbook, with an UVI title and every page will contain a few lines of text explaining the story of each character.

Here you have a few examples of what you can find in Asteroid:

CREATURES

Inside the planets we will find plenty of strange creatures, some of them keeping away from danger...unless it benefits its parasite behavior.

And some others being the danger itself.

 
But we always can find the Pokis to preserve the cuteness on Asteroid.

HEROES

A Hero will always be a hero, but not all of them share the same shape or attitude.  

Yes, a lot of them of them are intrepid and courageous, but sometimes a hero doesn't have to be strong, just a good person that you can trust.

VILLAINS

Really, what can we say about villains. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

A little twist in this unfair life can light a destructive fire within yourself that just doesn't want to be stopped.

These are some examples of what is inside the artbook, imagine 240 pages of different Heroes, Villains, and Creatures to chose your favorite.

Here are some stretch goals to reach!

Clarifying some stretch goals

-Dedicated Asteroid artbook: Everyone who buys the physical Asteroid artbook will receive it with a personal dedication.

-Vinyl sticker: 15x15cm / 6x6inVinyl sticker with an Asteroid illustration. Everyone who pledge the rewards of 30€ or more, will receive it.

-Sketchbook: I will gather some of my best doodles and sketches (some from Asteroid's, some for other themes) and join them into a sketchbook with 50 pages. Everyone who pledge 30€ or more will receive it.

-Gods artbook: I will work on a new artbook based on the spiritual world of Asteroid Universe. Everyone who pledge 30€ or more will receive it.

A new goal marked with a "?" will be displayed each time we reach another one!

Every backer that contributes 10€ or more, will damage the Great Villain, and will be part of the hall of fame (a page full of watercolor mini-portraits inside the artbook). 

Let's take a look of what else you can get being a backer:

All rewards have a wallpaper included. Select the reward you want and go for it! All backers count to defeat the great Villain.

Some questions about the rewards


About postcards:

In the mock-up I chose two of the illustrations that I have already finished but there will be 10 random designs by the time I finish the book.

About stickers:

  • 4-pack Stickers: You will get 3 random stickers from 7 designs and a shiny sticker.
  • 8-pack stickers: You will get all 7 stickers and the shiny sticker.


About Poki's figure: 

  • White Poki figure: Figure of Poki, a creature that will be inside the artbook. It's specifically made to be painted. Feel free to be creative with your color choices!

    I would like to see your new breeds of Poki, so, if you want to, send me your painted figures and I will make something special for you. 
  • Painted Poki figure: I will paint the figure with your palette choice and with any detail you want to include! To make it more easy for you I'll send you a template where you can fill a Poki lineart with whatever you want to. I will try to interpret your design the best I can and express it in the 3D model.

About doodles:

A small (16x23cm 6.2x9in) watercolor drawing with free topic.

About commissions:

I'll draw an A4 watercolor (or digital!) paint of anything you want. Just keep in mind that I won't paint anything that might offend the values or beliefs of any person.

About watercolor lessons:

I will prepare 10 hours of classes with video tutorials for beginners or advanced artists. After every lesson, I will send you an exercise and we will review your results together. You will have my constant feedback during your course.

You, your friend or your pet in the artbook (250-300€ reward):

I will make you or your friend as a Hero or Villain in the book from a photo of your choice. Becoming a Villain or Hero will be my decision, so choose wisely.

The same goes for your pet.The influence of the asteroid can transform him or her into a terrible monster or a cute creature. In this case, it won't be my decision, its Asteroid's, i swear ;-D

Remember! I will send you the original watercolor paint for your enjoyment once the artbook is finished.

Your Hero/Villain design:

Oh, boy! Here is when your dreams come true!

We will take a few days to talk about your design. I would listen to everything you have in mind, no matter how crazy or nonsensical it seems. We will make it possible. Yes.

I know, my friend, that your imagination is limitless, you can't be bounded to one page. Let's take two instead... SPREAD PAGES!!

Remember! I will send you the original watercolor paint for your enjoyment once the artbook is finished.

I hope this clear your doubts, but if you have more questions don't forget that you can contact with me =)

Hi everyone!
My name is Carolina Ibañez, but you might know me as Caro Waro. I'm an artist from Seville (Spain) and since long time ago I wanted to share my art with the world. That's why I created my Facebook page

Concept art has always been my biggest passion. I put a lot of effort into making characters express a lot through very little. I like to reinvent the classical roles we have been used to for hundred of years. Watercolors were my best ally in this task.

I find that watercolors are the perfect way to put together the idea with the personality of an artist with their characteristic ethereal touch. For me, a design its a vessel which watercolors fill with life.

Asteroid lets me to join my two passions together and I'm super excited to share this project with you!

 I knew this web from long ago, and I though Kickstarter was an awesome way of giving the opportunity that everyone deserves to have a start. As an artist, is not always easy to work on what you love. When I heard that Kickstarter was opened to Spanish projects, my eyes sparkled. It was the signal I had been waiting for!

Risks and challenges

I haven't completed the artbook now, but I estimate that it will be finished within 6 months more or less. If I reach the goal I will focus entirely to the project, so I'm sure I will be capable to end it at time.

I put the estimated date of sending all the rewards in March, because it's not easy to organize and pack all the stuff. That's why I decided to take a couple months for any issues I could have. Anyway, I will send all the rewards just in the moment I got all the necessary, be patient please =)

One of the things that gave me headache was the shipping costs. It's really expensive to send something abroad, so I tried to balance the prices and rewards.

I have already contacted with a company that is willing to print the books with all features described above. I hope everything goes well.
