About Me

Hello my artist name is Lee Crystal.

I’m working on Sci-fi Art/Literature/3D Art/3D Animation.

With Patreon I have an opportunity at this point in my life to make a change.

I need your help so I can continue to create my works of science fiction.

Let’s see, where to begin?

I’ve been into Sci-Fi ever since I can remember.

For me it all started after I saw a rebroadcast of Neil Armstrong setting foot on the moon when I was 5 years old.

As I grew older I was hooked on anything that dealt with humanity venturing out into space and to the stars.

I read the great Science Fiction works of Bradbury, Asimov, Clarke, and Heinlein. They all inspired me to wonder about what it would like for humanity to explore the stars.

Then there was also television.
I remember watching all the sci-fi I could find as a kid. TV shows like Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica.

Of course there were movies, most notable of them all was Star Wars.

There were many, many other great works of Science Fiction that also became a part of my life.


Influences on me

Ships like Star Trek's Enterprise got me to thinking about what kind of ships would we be flying into space in the next few hundred years. That ship was far from the simple rockets we use to see in science fiction before.

Along with the TV show Star Blazers it really got me thinking about how humanity would travel, live and even fight in space.
 
The Books from the Terron Trade Authority also got me wondering.

Some have rendered a few of these ships into 3D form.

As a result of all this I started making lots of my own Sci-Fi related Art. Then I got into writing it too.  

Were I am

Over the years I have managed to get some of my work published and you can see some of this from  here.

As I grew older life and work gets in the way. As a result my progress on my sci-fi universe’s have suffered.

I’m now it the best position to take advantage of Patreon and get the extra support I need to continue to build my worlds.

What I want to do

I have already written a number of short stories. My plan or goal is to go back to work on my Flash Fiction Series SUMP and my novels.

I made some video's to give you my ideas about what I have planned for my novels.


Currently you can get the first few chapters of the second draft of the Novel “The War and the Meant Empire” for free on smashwords.

Here is a video on my SUMP concept.


I have also played with the idea of making SUMP into a comic.

You can check out my  Short Stories. Some are free but I change which ones that are regularly, so keep checking.

I need you

All funds collected here will go towards supporting me while I work on the love of my life. With funding I can get an editor, update my hardware and software and support myself while working on my Sci-Fi. This way I can continue to bring you even better works of Science Fiction.

Not only do I want to make what I like. I also want to make what YOU like.

You can pledge your support for as long as you'd like.
If you need to stop or pause, I understand life happens.
You will always be welcome back.

There are a number of cool things available for each level of my patrons!

Note: All reward stories to patrons will be made available via smashwords with a special code. With an account on smashwords patrons will have access to the newest and various versions of their reward that can be used on different devises. If a patron does not wish to deal with smashwords they can select a version or versions of their reward and it will be emailed to them. 

To see more of what I have check out my website at www.outpost13.com.

THANK YOU!

Note:
As a matter of full disclosure.
At this point my wife, for all intensive purposes, is disabled. As a result I do need to take small parts of my day to help her. There will be times I need to take her to the doctor and that can take up half the day. There is hope that she may regain some of her mobility.
I just wanted you all to know this not to garnish sympathy, but to inform you that my progress may, at times, be slowed.
