Hey there, come on in.  Pull up whatever looks comfortable.  I'm ryivhnn, it's pronounced kind of like river with an n at the end.  The lack of vowels gets some people, so you can just call me fyn.  There's no vowels at all in that one but it's easier on the brain :)

I'm working on this universe inside my head, have been since 2002 when it exploded into being.  It spans about 2000 years at the moment, give or take.  There's a lot of characters with a lot of stories in there, and I want to tell them all.  It's been slow going as I've been working around a lot of things (running a business part time with the best sibling ever, homeschooling three kids and trying to run a house, occasionally pretending I'm a sociable person with a social life), and I'd like it to move faster so I can get these stories out of my head and into other people's.

The current "block" I'm working on is two seasons long.  First season has been written and I'm currently making all the 3d, and will then need to source some voice actors.  Second season is in the works.  It involves some Royals and Royal Guard, some thieves and vigilantes, some drug lords, encounters and explorations of familiar issues and wars of various scales.  It's set about 2000 years in the future, with technology not too far out of reach of where we are at the moment, and thanks to a solar flare and a passing comet a number of people look quite different to what we're used to (and some look exactly the same).  I've been told it's along the lines of dramatic sci-fi with possible fantasy elements but I'll let you decide :)

I don't want to put anyone out too much, so if you can spare a dollar to help me work on these stories, I would be really very quite grateful.

Why do I need to do this? Experience (okay so it took way too long as I am a helper not so much a helpee) has shown that I can't get anywhere fast doing what I have been doing (and this is even without the number of times I have rewritten scripts, redeveloped characters and redone base models because "this one is better!").  With your help I can spend less time on trying to make money doing other things and spend more time on this, which means I may be able to get all of the stories done! That would be awesome.

What's in it for you? Warm fuzzies aplenty! And the patreon-only feed.  It's where the good stuff is.  See, all these stories are going to be freely available for anyone to watch/read (I think some of them might end up being comics, at least one is hypertext, most are probably going to be animated), and I freely post works in progress to my blog and various art sites.  The super special top secret patreon-only feed however will have much more frequent updates, including detail screen shots, test renders, animated samples (when I get to them), extracts from The History of the World (that would be the 200+ page document that I had to convert to a wiki that timelines the lives of all the characters and major events that have shaped cultures in my head-universe) and dev notes.  All this raw, molten hot stuff straight out of my head.  Or at least in a much less refined form than it will get released in.

Additionally, how many other opportunities do you have to be involved with/privy to an animation series from the early stages?

And if you are able to contribute to the higher level tiers, you get also get commissions from me and the option to design outfits and/or crowd/background characters.

This is your ticket into the super secret patreon only feed containing works in progress, dev notes, extracts from The History of the World and test anims not shown on my blog or art sites.  I may even show you some really old sketches that should never again see the light of day.

And to welcome you into the fold, you get a sketch of one of my characters, either one picked randomly or one that you like if you're familiar with them.

Thank you! :)

Do you want to be a background character? Or have a character you would love to see in 3d? Perhaps you're into fashion design and have some cool outfits you think would look pretty good on a character.  Architect with cool building designs you don't mind showing off? Interior designer?  Now you can!

You retain all copyrights to your creations, get credited, a .blend file, your work somewhere in the stories (possibly a few times!) and you're helping me out even more!

And everything in the previous tiers.    Usual deal with subsequent ones getting queued :)

Thank you! ^_^

You're down this far? You're sereiously contemplating it? Really? You're a bit awesome.  Okay you're a lot awesome! So awesome that you'll go down in credits history as a SUPER AWESOME PATREON.  And I'll make you 3d renders because you're super awesome.  Usual deal with the tasteful and subsequents get queued though, no one escapes that ;)

Thank you! :O

Whoa, back up now

This will go a long way towards helping me pay for my backup server, which I am having to slowly increase in size as time goes by so everything can fit!
