Goals for this site:

Site Functionality

  1. When we reach a certain number of active users, I want to make the “pearls” redeemable for coupons, icons, etc.
  2. Get a working art gallery up and going where users can share fan art.

Site Content

  1. Get .introspection. completed and uploaded.
  2. Upload music I composed for TwistedFates.

Way in the future

  1. A make your own Serian flash game! That would be cool.
  2. Create and embed a TwistedFates related rpg or something similar.

Perks for Orribu’s Patrons!

Patron Rewards: Lifetime Support Redemption

To make the experience rewarding for patrons across all tiers, I’ve opened a new incentive that should (hopefully) make you, my sponsor, feel super important and awesome!

I often hold digital promotions where I offer digital commissions for a discounted price. But here’s the super cool part: during these promotions, you can redeem some of your Lifetime Support Balance(herein referred to as “LSB”) to get one of these for no additional cost! This means that over the time you support me, you’re actually building up “vouchers” that you can use later!

What “Promos” Can I Redeem my Lifetime Support Balance for?

From here on out, the image on the left will be displayed where you can redeem your LSB. Usually, these promotions will consist of “what would you/your OC look like” in one of my projects to keep things relevant.

Where Will the Promos Be Announced?

Super good question! To keep things simple, the promos will be announced on orribu.deviantart.com, as that is my front for creating and sharing art. This venue is subject to change, and when it is, I will notify all users of the change. This of course doesn’t mean that you HAVE to have an account on DeviantART, but it would surely be preferred.

How to Redeem:

  1. Make sure you are aware of your LSB before making a request! You can of course message me to confirm how much your lifetime support balance is.
  2. With this amount in mind, check the services offered in the promotion. Usually, the promotions will offer $1 mystery commissions, $3 “chibis” or $5 bust portraits. These prices and offers, of course, are subject to change.
  3. IF YOU DON’T HAVE A DEVIANTART ACCOUNT: Using the instructions provided in the promotion, send an email to mail@twistedfates.net with “Promo: [Promo Name] Redemption” as your subject.
  4. After we confirm your identity as one of my patrons and your LSB, we’ll make an agreement of what you’ll receive! At this time, I will tell you your remaining LSB after redeeming for the promotion.

REMINDER 

  1. You can only redeem once per promotion, and only the fixed amount that the promotion offers (i.e. redeem $2 of your $5 lifetime support for a $2 commission).
    1. You can still get multiple slots of each promotion, but only one will be “free” in accordance with this LSB Redemption agreement.
  2. Lifetime Support Balance (LSB) is good for digital services only, and only any “special” promotions where the orange tag is displayed.
    1. If you want to negotiate for an actual commission, check my commission details instead. You will get a special discount (often 10%-25% depending on your pledge)!
  3. Please refrain from constant check-ins on your commission. Constant check-ins result in my concentration/work flow being rattled and thus slows productivity.
    1. If you want to get updates on your commission as I make progress, we can discuss that at negotiation.
  4. Sometimes, multiple artists will be working on the commission. Upon redeeming your LSB and negotiating with me, you’re okay with the fact that you’ll possibly be receiving art from another artist. (NOTE: This won’t go in effect until things really pick up and I have more patrons redeeming their LSBs for the promotions.)
  5. You have to have successfully supported me for at least 3 consecutive months before redeeming again.
    1. If you’ve declined support recently, you can’t redeem your LSB until you’ve fulfilled the above condition.

Questions?

If you have any questions, please feel free to comment below! I will get back to you as soon as I can!

WIP- Rose for Shurinai, page 9

Screen Shot 2016-02-17 at 6.23.35 PM

I got help on this one from @brittu ! Of course I’m still coloring, but her suggestions really helped as far as the storytelling element goes. I trust brittu’s feedback, as I look up to her as a story teller and sequential artist. Man, you should have seen the comics she made for my OCT back in what– 2011? It was super freaking amazing!! I’m actually looking forward to seeing her launch Guardian Angel.

These few pages with Gale and Terry talking are a new kind of beast for me. Terry’s a hacker/techno mage, and drawing him interacting with these holographs and other electronics kind of takes me back to when I first saw Iron Man in theaters. Dude. Tony Stark is my peanut butter and jam. Watching the special effects animation coupled with Tony’s movements was super cool and inspiring. I’m hoping to get that far in animation where I can actually show Terry Livingston using his computers and stuff. Also, after Cup of Sugar volume 1, I’ve decided to give him his “bunny teeth”. Coupled with his fangs, they look both adorable and menacing.

Time to get back to work on this bad boy. I hope to have this page released to sponsors by the end of the week. I’m still recovering from surgery though, but here’s to hoping. Any thoughts, guys?

Rose for Shurinai (page 8 wip)

It’s super hard coming up with ideas for rooms and environments, but I have to do it because I want to add that layer of immersion to the TwistedFates world. So, I spent all day mapping out the room that Terry and Gale are talking in. It’s a struggle, but I have a general theme and a general floor plan.

Ah, and look at that handsome Guardian! :3c

….dude that’s all I got. Expect this page to come out this week, dear patrons! :3c

Fan Art section?

I don’t get fan art that often– and when I do it’s glorious and I just want to show it off.

So like… I don’t know. Should I make a gallery for fan art or something?

Or….. /something/??????????????

Seeing everyone’s interpretations of the characters and their (maybe) sonas would be super COOL.
