Things aren't going well for me financially, and with all the projects I have on the go, I am having to actually put some of what I want to do on hold. How much have I got going on? I am playing video games more as I now review them on a site called twentyoz.com as well as doing podcasts and general opinion articles for them. I am a QA tester over at www.runtimedna.com/ and that is a great job that pays in products I can use in my renders. I have put aside my YouTube ranting as, I really don't have time for it anymore, but I still discuss the issues in regards to nerd culture on a bi-weekly podcast called Tales from the Infrared. Then I have my little kitten who needs attention and play time as she is an only cat and indoor only. I run a website called Ambient Dimension, free for all, which allows 3D artists, and I pay for this website out of my own pocket. It helps as it is a good showcase of my kills in both 3D and web design, so it is worth the money. When I have time, I try and make 3D art. And I have a day job as well. But unfortunately, that isn't enough. The games reviewing doesn't pay, in fact I buy all the games I review, so that means that there is no conflict of interest that you would find if I was supplied a review copy by the publisher. This also means I only review games I was planning on getting anyways. Now I am being told by my landlord that I may either have to move out, or the rent will be going up significantly when the rental agreement is up for renewal. This means that I need to seek a day job which has more hours, or I need to find another source of income to supplement the upkeep of Ambient Dimension, as well as my other jobs. If I took a longer job hours, I would probably have to give up a lot of the things I do, including making art, which I really don't want to do. I might also have to put Ambient Dimension on the back burner, which I REALLY don't want to do.
As such, I decided to set up a Patreon, and see if any generous souls want to help me out. Normally I hate asking for money for nothing, so I decided to make it something with rewards. At certain intervals I will create a certain amount of 3D art, and showcase it on Ambient Dimension. And if you sponsor me enough, I will even print out a piece and send it to you. Each month, everyone who is a patron will get to vote on what type of art I create, to make it more interactive as well. I am working on setting up a website where patrons can see news, links to the art itself (as some of it will be for Patrons only) and the polls will be located. Just need to learn a decent system to do that.
So without further ado...
Here is the video pitch itself, but it is also on the Patreon page itself.
Just another crazy artist who does things better left untouched.
