Meet the Scumbags

My Scum & Smugglers Kickstarter is live!

It can be hard to manage time between various tasks and hence I’ve neglected posting on my own blog.

With just over 3 days until its conclusion, the Kickstarter has been funded, broken my previous Kickstarter’s total and is working through the (more sensibly paced) stretch goals well.

Previously, I introduced Arim. He was one of the five starting characters for the project launch. Here are the other 4.

Introducing Scum & Smugglers – Arim

After the success of my first Kickstarter – Frills & Fauna, it seems obvious to me that I should sustain use of the crowd-funding strategy to reach out to an audience. Despite being incredibly niche, the project raised more money than sales of anything else I’ve sculpted, combined. Admittedly, I am fairly new to the scene so that’s not a major statement, but when you are trying to make a living from the art, it’s one hell of a tasty pie to eat from.

So one of the perks of being the brother of a sculptor running a Kickstarter is getting early access to some of the pre-production models.

I’ve had a quick paint up of the Cirripod family and placed them into some sci-fi environments to see how they look…

Frills & Fauna: Cirripod scale shot

In order to be able to show prospective customers how the final product will look, I had one o fthe family sets cast up before the project launches. The Cirripods arrived today and so I’ve put together a scale shot. Hopefully I will find some time to paint them up tomorrow.

The Kickstarter launches tomorrow at 12pm GMT. That’s 15 hours away!
