Win this Badger Headdress! by Beetlecat
Win this Badger Headdress!

Current Patrons are all AUTOMATICALLY ENTERED into the raffle! 

To learn how else to enter/how to increase you odds of winning, please read on. No purchase is necessary!:


There are two ways to enter:

1) Become a Patron of Beetlecat Originals by pledging to my Patreon. www.patreon.com/Beetlecat You will need to be a patron for at least one PAID month (after the raffle # is drawn, you can immediately cancel if you wish). 

If you pledge but do not actually pay for the first month (due to declined credit card etc), then your pledge will NOT count towards the raffle.

The higher the pledge-level, the more tickets you will earn. You may also pledge extra $ over the highest pledge level.

Example: pledge level $2 = 1 ticket. $5 = 2 tickets. $10 = 3 tickets. $15 = 4 tickets. Every $5 pledged above the $15 tier will earn 1 extra ticket. (so $20 = 5 tickets. $45 = 10 tickets. etc)

AND/OR

2) Advertise this raffle by linking to www.patreon.com/creation?hid=2… + a short written description of at least 3 sentences (aka “Beetlecat is having a raffle to win a FREE FURSUIT! Oh I hope I win! Come check it out here: www.patreon.com/creation?hid=2…). It does not need to be Shakespeare but a one sentence/disinterested description will not be valid.

You earn one (1) ticket for every different journal/forum/gallery/Facebook page/etc you advertise. The description MUST be changed between every post to be valid (no copy/past) up to a maximum of 5 tickets. Please be reasonable about this – if advertising in a certain forum is forbidden and the post will be removed by the moderators, do not post there. 

Link (or screen cap) the advertisement and email to beetlefursuits[at]gmail.com so I can count it.

REMINDER! You can enter with BOTH of these methods (ie pledging $15 and then ALSO writing a raffle link in your journal will earn you 4 tickets total). 
I will close advertisement entries on MAY 30th. The raffle number will be drawn (by random # generator) on JUNE 6th (unless not all of the Patreon pledges have had a chance to go through yet).

If you win, then I will contact you by whatever method you contacted me with your proof. If there is no response within two weeks then I will pull a new winner.
You are free to wear or sell the headdress. It is yours! The head dress is entirely FREE but the winner WILL need to pay shipping in order to claim the prize.

Please let me know if you have any questions and may the odds be forever in your favour ;)

April Photoshoot by Beetlecat
April Photoshoot
A photo from April's fursuit photoshoot. I've been having a lot of fun figuring out how to work my camera and what light levels mean and all that outdoor photo stuff :D

The rest of the photos from the photoshoot are available on my Patreon every month www.patreon.com/beetlecat

A new Airbrushing video is up! In this one I airbrush three pairs of ears from start to (more or less) finished (I finished my camera battery in the last few minutes).

I enjoyed filming/editing/watching it and I hope you do too!

White Bison by Beetlecat
White Bison
Video here! youtu.be/YUxPJIk_tMc

I love artistic liberty! And I love love love how this head came out :D

The mouth is static. The nose is hand sculpted. The horns are cast in resin & foam from real bison horns and screw on.

April is almost upon us.. by Beetlecat
April is almost upon us..
And here is just some of what you may have missed in March by not already pledging to my Patreon!

My patrons get the be first in line to see all of my new works, some exclusive work-in-progress photos as well any small photo tutorials I make. You also get to be in the front lines regarding giving me feedback/suggestions/etc.

All of the above starts at just $2/month. Higher tiers get access to my written weekly 'diary', livestreams, and exclusive photoshoots of my personal characters. New in April is personalized gifts mailed right to your door!

Everything I offer is with the aim to improve my own skills in some form - My photography, my digital skills, my record-keeping, my tutorial compositions. Or to give me a bit of freedom to design and create my own random items (which I will then give away). The feedback will let me know where I am improving and what still needs work.

Since Patreon charges at the beginning of each month, Now is a great time to join in order to receive ALL of the goodies!


www.patreon.com/beetlecat


Check it out! If you can't join right now, just sharing this link will help me immensely. Let me know if you do so I can give you a personal thank you!

Then go back my Kickstarter!

www.kickstarter.com/projects/5…

Goal has been made so there is no question that you will receive your product - All funds will go towards making my ears more available more often as well as making new and unusual species more likely. Pick yourself up some swag and support this worthy cause!

The first run of ears will be [b]10% off[/b] my normal pricing! (essentially you receive free domestic shipping).

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.

AIRBRUSHING INFORMATION:
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.

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you 
have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re
nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this 
message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, 
and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 
deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will
happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!
