A new Pledge Tier has just been opened on my Patreon!
Access to the extra ‘unaired’ & uncut photos from each new creations’ debut photoshoot. Also an EXCLUSIVE monthly photoshoot just for you of my own personal collection of costumes.
Photography is one of my hobbies and something I’d love to practice more with different scenes/light levels/etc. I will do indoors and outdoors. Complicated and simple. Artsy photos as well as more classic portraits..
This tier pays for my time and travel to local destinations. I would also like to make/buy props for some photos and maybe get into some more advanced photo editing. Help me expand my skill set and lead to overall better photos in the future!
All comments and notes to which the answer is contained in here (or to which the appropriate answer is "Go Google it.") will be cheerfully ignored ^^|
My FAQ: www.beetlecatoriginals.com/faq…
WHERE TO BUY FUR:
www.crscraft.com (international) – Realistic furs. Ignore the short pile and fun fur as it is not good for anything except small accents. I use a lot of their furs in my suits.
www.imstuffedfur.com (international) – High quality random assortment of furs. Pricy but worth it if you need something unusual
www.distinctivefabrics (USA) www.interiormall.com (search for 'promo shag') (Canada) – solid colors of fluffy fur for toonier characters.
I use Createx airbrush paints. My airbrush is a Badger 155 Anthem. My compressor is an IWATA Smart Jet.
No I can not tell you what airbrush/compressor to buy. The above is what I have and it works for me. Createx (transparent or opaque does not matter) has proven to be one of the longest lasting paints, but you can airbrush with any material that you can get to come out the nozzle. In a pinch I'll use basic artist's acrylics.
