12-28-14 Furfunding Highlights
This week’s illustration is the reverse side of Pelted Primacy, now funding on Kickstarter.
This week, DJKyota’s “Pelted Primacy” makes its return to Kickstarter. I’ve been watching this project for a few years, and it’s been an interesting exercise in adaptation. In its latest incarnation DJ has developed the artwork and is using Kickstarter for a preorder system. “Pelted Primacy” was one of the first projects I covered, in my second post. I’ve got my fingers crossed, here’s hoping this is the evolution of the project that springboards it to success!
This week saw a lot of really, really first-time projects that were a bit on the rough side. Uncertain of why–I don’t plan to bother following the astonishingly missable “Thundercats” fan film ($1mil goal, no business plan…), but some of them were so undeniably furry that I have to at least give them a nod. In particular, “Redemption” stands out for having most of a chapter in the in-line text of its Kickstarter story, as well as having only one paragraph of business content. “Isles of Eventide,” is a nice-looking little non-anthro RPG, also suffering a bit from “first time out.” I think we may see this one again in the vague future.

Meimei and Po Calendar (Ends: 1/11/2015)
Japanese-style fantasy animal and human art–lots of foxes!–in a lovely art calendar.
Engineers with Puppies: A Swimsuit Calendar (Ends: 1/14/2015)
Images, please? Use that gallery function, guys! A largely self-explanatory project raising money for the Champaign County Humane Society and Techbridge, a campaign supporting women in engineering and science.
Argh, they’re using two different crowdfunding platforms. Dumb, dumb, dumb…
Redemption: A Fantasy Novel (Ends: 1/22/2015)
First-time novel project in an anthro fantasy universe.
I suspect including “noooooo” in the sample page was a mistake.
Powerful Plants (Ends: 2/16/2014)
Okay, not strictly FURRY but nutrition education loaded with anthro plants and veggies!
RABBIT (Ends: 1/22/2014)
A graphic novel of a rabbit working as a bar-bouncer in a city of carnivores. Strange, rough, and abstract indie goodness.
Tabby (Ends: 2/8/2015)
It’s a sweet rom-com with a crazy cat lady as the main character! Great cats and nice art.
Lots of art and sketchwork on the artist’s process blog.
Pelted Primacy (Ends: 1/16/2015)
Anthro card deck by DJKyota, with character art for the court cards and unique paw-print suit designs.
It’s been interesting watching this deck evolve over time, it was one of the first project I covered here.
Squatting Dog (Ends: 1/30/2015)
If you really, really needed a miniature figurine of a shiba caught in mid-poop, the internet will provide.
Second Chance: The Game (Ends: 1/25/2015)
Eliana-Asato‘s furry dating sim project.
Language in project page is kind of off (artist speaks Russian natively). Think that’s hurting her business case.
Isles of Eventide (Ends: 1/30/2015)
A fascinating fantasy world MMORPG with non-anthro characters and monsters.
