First look ...

The first few pages (three spreads) will be free to all, and will include sketches, notes, and a I hope a video process. Below is the first glimps of the Xeno Report and field xenologist's sketchbook.

The Xenology Report is a two page of biological, social information as well as a summary of their home world, location, and primary star. 

The Xenologist's Sketchbook will take a deeper look at aspects of the new species world, including anything from they're history, social structure, or just points of interest that capture the xenologist's attention. 

Why Patreon?

After looking around and considering various funding sites, I finally settled on Patreon because of the nature of The Outer Rim Project. Unlike most art books, this is not a one off. This is meant to be on going. I don't have an end in sight, and so I felt that Patreon best fit the needs and scope of the project.

Once complete, each art book will be available to whomever wishes to purchase it. However, the Patreon site will allow fans to directly engage in the development process, get cool perks like post cards, access to works in progress and behind the scenes, original or print art (some illustrations are done entirely on the computer, so no traditional "original" exists), coffee cups, and more as a way of saying "Thank You" for your support.

As an added bonus, fans from my Alien Suns Stellaris Mod will have access to new portraits before formal release, regardless of what level they've signed up for.

Getting close ...

The Patreon page is all but done. Just have some refinements to do here and there, tighten up the intro and description, and make sure that all the rewards make sense and work.
