Paid: $20 USD + $8 USD tip Commission: A flat colour, full body redesign of the character Arph from my animated series Nyah Has an Adventure Date of payment: August 19, 2018
CanisAries / Wolframclaws / Blanisquid / lovecraftisafurry / @Depresstopus is a cute and awesome artist from Finland. Mostly known for her artworks and fanfiction in the Twitch Plays Pokémon community, she started to test the waters of the world of accepting commissions in 2018, much to my and everyone else’s delight. The first commission I have asked of her is a redesign of one of the main characters to my Nyah franchise.
After the Australian Shepherd-like fur markings of the new Arph were sorted out, and the basic shape of the character was defined, payment was made after a rough sketch was produced of the finalised artwork, which is shown below.
Now all that’s left to do is figure out how to retroactively un-canonize Arph’s old design… Oh, well. Introducing the new and improved Arph!
Pledged: £22 Rewards:Signed first edition hardback, eBook, Name in the back of the book Unbound start date: July 25, 2018 Unbound funded on: N/A Estimated delivery date: N/A
The Region Locked book comes from the Did You Know Gaming team, and even includes excerpts from Ashens who made the campaign I posted about before this one. It also seems it will talk about Wonder Project J and Live a Live, my favourite Square-Enix SNES games.

Ashens is a guy who reviews relatively useless items on his couch. Apparently at some point, he made a film with some familiar faces such as Chris Bingham and Larry Bundy Jr. I didn’t even see it before deciding to back this sequel. I saw it later though. Of course, I had to aim for the name in the credits tier, which was pretty expensive.

The 8-Bit Guy, David Murray, has really interesting videos on old hardware and software. Last year he made a game called Planet X2 for the Commodore 64, and with this campaign, he’s amping it up with Planet X3 for MS-DOS.

I didn’t have enough money for Tom’s earlier Eddsworld Legacy campaign, so I promised myself I’d back his next crowdfunding campaign, which turned out to be for a new season of his hilarious original animated series.
Pledged: £34 Rewards: eBook download, Physical paperback copy of book (signed by Cyriak Harris), Name in the back of the book Unbound start date: May 18, 2018 Unbound funded on: N/A Estimated delivery date: N/A
Cyriak is a surrealist animator, who suddenly announced they wrote a book, so I backed it.
Pledged: €5 Rewards: Beta Tester, Backer lobby icon Kickstarter start date: December 15, 2017 Kickstarter funded on: December 30, 2017 Estimated delivery date: January 2018
I have had a Board Game Online account since November 30th, 2011, so it made sense to back their Kickstarter for a mobile version of the game.
After an initial survey, my username is now a gold colour in-game and in the lobby. The mobile version of the game has not yet been released fully. As of August 2018, the mobile version is in an open beta.
Pledged: $20 Rewards: Access to behind-the-scenes development forum, Digital copy of the game, Name in the credits Kickstarter start date: September 05, 2017 Kickstarter funded on: October 06, 2017 Estimated delivery date: December 2018
I thought Cyanide and Happiness is a funny webcomic and animated series, so backing their game should be equally funny.
Paid: $28 USD Commission: An image of Meloetta from Pokémon Date of payment: March 26, 2017
Asdfghjkl is a friend I made in the Know Your Meme community. I commissioned him to make art of the Pokémon known as Meloetta. After a few instances where the eyes didn’t look quite right, I drew him a basic idea of what I wanted them to look like and he soon delivered.
Payment was made after the following piece of art was finalised.
