Commission of Walrusmedia: Ink

Paid: $51.18 AUD
Commission: A low-poly, rigged and textured 3D model of my OC, Ink.
Date of order: May 26, 2020
Date due:
June 3, 2020
Date of delivery:
June 1, 2020

Context:

I was looking around Fiverr for someone who could make a low-poly version of my character Ink for my video game Weathered Wasabi Warehouse. I settled on Walrusmedia after seeing other low-poly characters they made.

Result:

This is how the low-poly model turned out. They even took creative liberties to add an ice-cold light-blue tail. Very cool!

Commission of Shiftybeans: Ink

Paid: $71.26 AUD
Commission: A detailed and rigged 3D model of my OC, Ink.
Date of order: May 26, 2020
Date due: May 28, 2020
Date of delivery: September 3, 2020

Context:

I was looking around Fiverr for someone who could translate The-F0X’s key art of my character Ink into a 3D model. I settled on Shiftybeans after seeing their work and saw their usage/knowledge of Unreal Engine.

Result:

The following model was delivered, but due to reasons, could not be textured or rigged. Still a good job, regardless!

Heard about this Nintendo Switch sequel to the Nintendo DS/3DS series of art-making apps from scrolling through news on Google and Twitter. It also comes with a pressure-sensitive pen for the Switch’s touch screen this time around, so I figured I’d try it out.

Result:

The game was distributed digitally via Nintendo eShop code, and I received my Colors SonarPen in mid-November 2020. Here are the contents of the box containing the pen:

And here is my name in the credits:

Rewards: Deck of clear/waterproof cards
Kickstarter start date: May 8, 2020
Kickstarter funded on: June 22, 2020

Context:

From scrolling through Kickstarter, I saw that MPC (a company that I’ll later ask to produce the cards for my own upcoming card games such as F0X Trumps and Studio RGB-Newt’s Shipment) had a campaign for a see-through set of waterproof playing cards, and I figured I could grab a deck.

Result:

The cards arrived in the latter half of 2020, and they look like this!
