To all my watchers & fellow deviants,
Just yesterday I started a crowdfunding campaign over at #patreon
. To visit the campaign kindly click the link below:-
I humbly ask you to read this entry before you take any decisions.
As most of you may know for the last 4 years I have been running a fantasy adventure #webcomic
series titled, 'The Beast Legion' www.thebeastlegion.com
. I work on it absolutely solo & so far I have funded it completely on my own. I have no regrets about that as Beast Legion is a project that is deeply connected with me & something that I want to share with the world absolutely free.
It has received some great reviews over the years & has actually been a catalyst in launching my career as a manga styled artist & animator. However I have never fully been able to promote the series the way I want because of lack of funds. Although I work as a full time animation director now, the salary i get is usually spent mostly on living expenses, daily needs & family which leaves very little budget for me to promote the comic in a more aggressive way. To top it off currency conversion becomes a major dEterring factor when you live oin India.
My reason for starting this campaign is to create a funding source to promote various Beast Legion activities from advertising to holding contests every once a year & a lot more... but most importantly to increase the fanbase for the series. I will be offering plenty of goodies for every level of pledge you make., even if it's $12 year ($1 /month). Plus there are several incentives that will be offered once each major goal is met.
BUT even if you can't make a pledge, even sharing the campaign with your friends through email & social media would go a very long way in making this campaign a success. For example a simple hit on stumbleupon can expose it to over 20-30 readers. Same goes for a tweet or FB post. I humbly request all my watchers & the people who enjoy my art to please at least take a look at the campaign & then decide what steps to take. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
