Westward is produced using a combination of 2D art and 3D models. Some of the models, like that of Westward itself, represent hundreds of work hours and contain many hidden details that are never seen in the comic. At this tier, you will be granted access to download Westward and other models in the easy-to-use Sketchup format. Literally walk the corridors of the ship, exploring every nook and cranny from the brig to the space lift!
Model Citizens will immediately be given access to the expansive Westward model. Over time, more models will be made available from the vault: Currently used models, models from the archive, and even never-used concepts!

If sneaking into the model for Ed Schult's cabin isn't immersive enough for you, why not be part of the comic itself? In addition to the perks of previous tiers, Patrons at this tier will be sent a simple biography form, which I will use to add an actual reoccurring character to the comic strip in your likeness! This isn't a background extra bit; it's a role that will be significant over the course of multiple strips. Adventure awaits!
