Kickstarter is half way, giveaway news, and one more exciting announcement!

We're at the half way point, so here's an update on how things are coming.

The campaign itself:

We passed $1500 a couple of days ago, which puts us well past the first stretch goal, so everybody who's backed at $12 and above gets a free dragon postcard.

I'm also doing a Black Friday/Cyber Monday promotion. If you back at $12 or more between now and Cyber Monday (Dec. 2) you get a second free postcard of your choice. (And because the point of this is to encourage people to back early, I'm giving a second free postcard to those who have already backed.)

We still have a long way to go to reach the second stretch goal, but I'm confident it's at least possible.

Here's a link to it: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1285575774/dragon-bjd-ball-pet

The giveaway:

The giveaway is still happening, and I'll be adding another prize to it when we hit 200% funded, which should be happening very soon, it's only a few bucks short right now.

Due to furaffinity's new rules, new FA journal posts will NOT earn tickets. If you have a ticket from a previous journal it's still totally valid, but I won't be giving out any more. You can still get tickets by posting to pretty much anywhere else though, from facebook to twitter to forums or platforms like reddit or wherever.

Here's a link to the giveaway, with the prizes and rules explained in more detail: http://bladespark.tumblr.com/post/66824956081/do-you-like-free-art

The fourth doll:

This is some exciting news I should probably mention. One of the backers has picked up the super-awesome backer level that includes an entire new ball pet doll. We are still working out details, but it looks like I will be making a raven doll! This will be super awesome and cute. I won't be doing a kickstarter for these dolls, but I will have a small batch for sale after I've sent the backer their promised copies. This will be several months from now, since I haven't even started sculpting them yet, but I thought some of you might like to know what's in the pipeline, so to speak.

You can have a look at my initial concept sketch for this doll here: http://www.sparkcostumes.com/artwork/albums/userpics/normal_ravenball.jpg (The finished doll will almost certainly be a little different, but this gives you some idea.)
