Hello! I'm an artist and costume maker living in the UK, I usually go by my internet handle of 'Dasker' or my company name, 'BFF/Blue fox fursuits'.



As an artist and crafter I've been around since 2008, trying to offer costumes at a reasonable price to people with a lower end budget. I do this because I want to! The idea of opening patreon to fans of my work is to offer something back in return for a little support that helps make my day to day a little easier.



I enjoy making costumes and illustrations, it's my only source of income and keeping it this way is ideal! Not just for me, but for commissioners, so wait times can stay reduced, and there won't be another job in my life to take time away from what I enjoy doing.

What I ideally want to offer through Patreon to patrons is a few things that better the experience for everyone. While some milestones will be available to everyone, others will be exclusives here, such as in depth tutorials, ask sessions via streaming, advice on acting in fursuit to bring your character to life, and the ability for me to start making and casting resin and silicone items to aid starting fursuit makers and anyone else wanting to use resin parts from a more local supplier when overseas shipping isn't an option. I also want to be the first person to consider and make resin fursuit head bases with glasses wearers in mind. As someone who medically can't wear contacts, it can be frustrating to not be able to wear resin heads without extensive modifications, and not have optimal vision as a result.

Will tutorials be available to everyone?

Yes, they will be! Tutorials will be condensed for easy reading down to key images and important text for everyone, but the in-depth tutorials with small video clips if or when needed will be limited to patrons. Essentially, the tutorials given to patrons will be easy to follow for even a starting artist with basic knowledge, or someone looking to jump into fursuit making. The tutorials given to everyone will be more aimed at intermediate, assuming you know the basics already, as they won't be explained as clearly as the in-depth tutorials.

So what's this we hear about moving?

This was actually the main driving force behind this campaign! Every reward tier on here will get access to the work being done on my work room. Everyone supporting me until the work room is finished will have their names put into a little art piece to go in my work room, so I can remember everyone who supported me. I hope to start progress on the work room sometime after may! This way you also get to see how your money gets spent on furnishing the workroom and buying tools.

~At the moment I'm not in my new home/workspace, and I won't be until around november. If the resin item milestones get hit, I'll be sure to make good of them as soon as I'm moved and settled! Something else will be offered in return.~
Tiers
Pledge $1 or more per creation
The basic level, you get access to the WIP/workshop blog and any tutorials when they're released, but you don't get entered into the yearly prize draw, of course you also get my gratitude as with every other tier!
Pledge $5 or more per creation
Can't afford much but still want to support? No problem! you still get something out of it, even if I don't hit any goals for the year, your name will be entered in for a randomized freebie at the end of the year. It could be anything from a sketch to a full costume.
Pledge $10 or more per creation
Just like the above tier, you get the same! only your name gets entered twice, and you get a high rez image at the end of each month exclusive to patreon as a thankyou. The image would be free to print for non profit, and vary every month.
Pledge $15 or more per creation
The art tier. You'll get a small doodle from me, likely a head shot of some kind of either your character or a random critter based on things you like. You'll also get monthly emails of all high rez non commission images I draw! You'll also be entered into the raffle with 3 mentions of your name at the end of the year. If you take this tier, you'll receive your head shot after your first month comes up as paid, just email me via [email protected] with your details! -includes previous tier's goodies-
Pledge $20 or more per creation
The earlybird. You get first pick of any resin or silicone items should I hit the relevant goal. If I don't hit that goal, as with the previous two you get chances at the freebie draw at the end of the year with 4 mentions of your name in the mix. -includes previous tier's goodies-
Pledge $30 or more per creation
The art lover, take two. As you probably guessed, two head shots as per the $15 tier, and as a little extra to sweeten the deal, 10% off everything over £10 for as long as you're a patron as well! You'll also get a little random gift in the mail after your first month of support. -includes previous tier's goodies-
Pledge $50 or more per creation
Super supporter. You're the person who always wants to get the best and give the best out of anything, and as such, you will receive a random freebie every month. This could be anything! Resin or silicone parts, artwork, prints, pendants, small goodies.... Essentially, every month you get a little grab bag full of things from me. It may not always require an address, as goodies will be randomized and could be links to high rez artwork, unreleased comics, ect rather than physical goodies. Oh did we mention you also get 10 mentions of your name into the prize draw at the end of the year and the high rez image the previous two tiers got and 20% discount for as long as you're a patron on everything over £10. -includes previous tier's goodies-

The 'Really you didn't have to!' tier. 

Supporters of this tier are truly appreciated for supporting me and my craft, and they will receive all the goodies of the previous tiers, 10 mentions in the end of year raffle, and the chance to influence premade costumes, and a huge 50% discount on anything and everything for as long as you're a patron, custom fursuit things don't apply to this, however artistic liberty costumes do apply! -includes previous tier's goodies-
Goals
$14 of $20 per creation
One big thing about getting out there and getting artwork or a fursuit is... well, good reference art! I'll make a free PSD [and PNG] template for a canine character, one male and one female, front back and side. Should the interest be good, the incentive for more further down the road as well! These will be available to everyone, however patrons will get first access to using them and giving feedback on what they want in the ref sheet other than the 3 poses.
