2017 Update - I have totally revamped the PrinceArmory.com website and am populating the galleries extensively over the next few months with over a decade of past projects, it will take some time.  The next stage will be populating a private galleries section where I upload the WIPS of those projects for you Patreon supporters to access.  I really encourage you guys to check the site as it has a lot more content and if you're looking for design reference and inspiration the galleries will have it in abundance.
-----------------------------------------
Greetings all! Thanks for checking out my campaign.  This page is brand new and I've still got a lot to do on it. My first phase will be in terms of freeing up some of my time so I can create 'content for everyone'.  I'll also be thinking about incentives for individuals.  If you have requests feel free to get in touch.
-----------------------------------------
I'm always so busy with the elaborate private client projects for Prince Armory I rarely have time for much else.  And though I am passionate about what I do, I would also like to cater to a broader audience.  Well, with your support I can begin to divert focus to a variety of things that I believe would be of great value to anyone interesting in leather working, costuming, cosplay, crafting, design, and fantasy things in general.

I'm talking about guides, books, videos, tutorials, blogs, articles, reviews, live-streams, Q&A sessions, pod casts, projects just for the sake of art, and anything else you guys want to see.

Let me offer one example of one of the first things I would start doing with your support.  I collect numerous images and videos of my projects as I go and have for years.  However 99% of this is never seen.  This includes additional high res close up images, loads of Work In Progress images and even some video WIP highlights.

Currently, when I complete a project I process the few portfolio shots and archive the rest.  What I would like to start doing is retroactively go through my best works and create elaborate articles that talk about the components and processes in depth along with revealing countless unseen WIPS and alternative angles.  And of course gather even better documentation of future projects with more videos and tutorials.

I'll show you what I'm talking about, below is a screenshot of my image folder for the Asgardian Iron Knight project: 4.37Gigs and 684 files.  And that's just one project. My primary "Work" folder is currently about 240GB with 208,000 files with most of that being images and videos.  That is a lot of content I can use to make some really great stuff.  And that's just the beginning.

If you would like to help make this happen, consider contributing to the cause. The more funding received, the sooner I can transition time into creating content for everyone.

Every bit helps, and a little goes a long way, thanks for letting me know you're rooting for me.  Any contribution allows access to the hidden Patreon stream where there will be additional WIPS and behind the scenes along with some first look and early preview things from upcomming projects.

Entry to Phase 1
This phase is set up to allow me set aside more time to produce content for everyone.  This includes more blogs, wips, mini guides/tutorials, and more.

If I can get some traction on Patreon I'll set up some more complex and exclusive rewards soon. 
Goals
$1 of $100 per month
Lets start off small and get to $100.  Once we reach that I will find some juicy nugget(s) from our past works we haven't released before to share exclusively with our patrons, I'll begin the first proper Patreon themed tutorial for the next goal, and I will hurry up and overhaul this Patreon page and set it up proper.  Then we can really start advertising.  Again, the better this campaign does, the more and better the content that I can invest my time into producing.
