About

The Lore of the Summoner

The Summoners are a secret collective who gather in groups of five to  perform sacred rites. When the ritual is performed it ignites the true  essence of their spirit and they become forever ablaze, replacing the  faces of their former selves. We have yet to uncover the truth about  what their ritual entails or the effect it may have on the world.

Summoners under a Blacklight

About Us and the Project

 Shypoke Studios is Shaun and Danielle Williams, a Husband and wife who have always wanted to own their own business, and always wanted to create and share art. The summoner is the first design that we wanted to make available to the world. We love experimenting and learning new things, especially in order to deliver something that we are proud of, but that comes at the cost of time and materials. We have sold a few of our first prototypes to help fund a more refined process and we are ecstatic with the overwhelmingly positive reception and demand for more Summoners. We decided Kickstarter would be a great way to eliminate the bottle neck of make a few, deliver a few, purchase materials for a few more, tweak the Summoner and repeat, We want everyone who wants to share in our endeavor to have that possibility. Now is the chance.

About the Summoner Toys

The Summoners were designed in Blender, 3d Printed, Prepped, Molded, and then Cast in Smooth-on Resin and then the Skull is double-cast inside the flame. The standard flame colors utilize UV reactive pigment so they glow under a blacklight. The summoners have already went through several small revisions specifically regarding skull and spine design as well as methods for consistent skull placement inside the flame. Based on our desire to constantly improve the design and process final product may very slightly. Also note that since these are handmade there will be variations from Summoner to Summoner. Some glow better than others, some show the skull better than others, colors may be slightly lighter or darker, Occasionally one of the skulls might have a chipped tooth. We strive for consistency but there is a high likelihood your Summoner will be slightly unique in its own special way, but still of the best quality we can provide. Each Summoner is about 4" tall and is two individual pieces, the Body as a base and the Skull Flame that simply sits on top. We are looking for a good way to make a secure fit in the future but please note as of now the Flame simply sits atop the body. Also the body has a hollow core that will allow underlighting. eventually we would like to provide a custom lighting solution but as of now for full effect you will need your own light source.

Thank You!

Thank you for taking the time to view our campaign, additional thanks and gratitude if you decide to pledge. The support, the shares, the comments and the likes all mean the world to us.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk would be delivery of the rewards on time. Making toys by hand requires a lot of time, dedication, and effort. Since we don't outsource or make anything in a factory these are produced with our own two hands. We plan to dedicate as much effort as possible to deliver, and fully intend to deliver on time, but we still have a day job and a toddler that we also have to take care of in addition to the unforeseeable as it might relate to materials, resources, etc.
