Help Me Get Back On RAT RAGE with Patreon!
Hey all! By now, I’m sure you folks have heard of Patreon, a site where creators can continue to share their work and for fans to continue to support them!
Well, personally, I’ve been checking this site out for quite some time now and I’ve been doing some critical thinking involving my project Rat Rage. Since I’ve started working on Cryamore, I haven’t had much time for any other project. And a lot of people have been (as a result of the popularity of all my Rat Rage redesign fanart and further RR-related posts) asking me “when am I getting back on Rat Rage!?”, since I was originally working on a comic/graphic novel before then. At first, I thought we’d be near done on Cryamore at this point, but it’s really a huge game in the making. Much more larger than we thought. And I was going to have a Kickstarter for Rat Rage eventually after we’re done with the game.
So Patreon has become a thing amidst this, and it actually opened up things for me from a creator standpoint. I really want to do more with my own properties beyond Cryamore, but I’m subjugated by holding out on not showing stuff (which is mainly Cryamore stuff, a lot of it is still top-secret). And I do want to continue working on Rat Rage in my spare time, but I just can’t as that time has to go towards freelance work and commission work to keep the bread on the table.
So that’s where Patreon comes in! If I reach my first goal, I can actually get back to working on Rat Rage, but in webcomic form! I can do a page a week (or 2 pgs a week at times, depending on my schedule) all while working on my main project, Cryamore. With that said, I’m taking a different approach with Rat Rage. It’ll no longer be me slaving on pages for an ultimate release in an original graphic novel format like I originally planned, but as a webcomic, which can then be compiled into a volume or two. This also means that only the folks who support the webcomic will have exclusivity; only they will be able to read the comic in its entirety before anyone else does. And all I’m asking for in return is $1 to join in the fun. And if you want some more good stuff, $5 to see high-resolution versions of the sketchy layout, inks, and colors without the dialogue, and extra thingies like concept art and such. It’s sort of a no-brainer.
I can’t do this for free. It’s just not happening with today’s economy. But I really would like to get back to RR so bad, and I’ve felt my work/content has become stale since I don’t have much to show besides random fanart and commissions.
Thanks so much! And Reblog and share around!
Signal Boost for Rob,because he’s gotta (and surely can) achieve that other dream of completing Rat Rage as a comic and Nini’s totally adorbs.
I hope everyone had fun saying goodbye to 2013 and ringing in the new year.
To all my friends and crewmates at nostalgico and to everyone out there, here’s to 2014!
Maybe I’ll color this someday…
First 10 pages are up!
Updates will happen once a week from now until the next chapter. :D
Signal boost for a friend and fellow-Cryamore and nostalgiCO member, Juby! Her art is always fantastic and I finally have a new comic to follow.
Is it still Halloween? I wanted to try getting some rust off my hands as I haven’t drawn anything in ages besides concepts, animating and pixel art.
Decided to draw Bliss and her posse taking a selfie in Halloween garb. Deseret as a little schoolgirl, Bliss as a sexy witch and Sorbet was supposed to dress up in 1920s fashion but I ended up throwing way too many ribbons and whatnot I think.
Since I take too long with illustrating, maybe I’ll just clean this up and color it later on. Rob, how the hell do you churn that stuff out so fast?!
Anyway, Happy Halloween everyone, from Bliss, Deseret, Sorbet and the rest of the Cryamore and nostalgiCO team! I hope you all had fun!
Our Little Hobbit Hole
After a recent side project I realized I don’t make enough isometric stuff so I went and made this. Just a background I wanted to make for my Twitter and a tribute to my dear girlfriend who fancies the idea of a Hobbit Hole where we have a pet dog, cat and maybe sheep. Apparently Twitter won’t accept this animated version though.
It’s lacking a bunch of plants and flowers to look more like a hobbit hole and I don’t think I was able to capture the feel of being embedded into a hill.
