A look at last January’s Minifantasy

Hi Everyone!

This post is a little recap of what has been happening in Minifantasy during the last month.

100 Friends :)

During January we reached the 100 Patrons goal. It might not look very big milestone (especially compared to some of the very successful Patreon projects), but this, for me, means the world.

Less than 2 years ago I started this Minifantasy adventure from scratch. At that time, I didn't have any previously built community or social media presence, and I didn't have published any asset pack on itch yet. Now Minifantasy is my fulltime job.

This wouldn't be possible without all your support. I will be forever grateful to every person that has contributed to making Minifantasy what it's today.

As I promised, this goal come with a reward. I'm working on the creation of a Minifantasy website to serve as a hub between all the sites where Minifantasy has a presence. But more importantly, it'll have an interactive index to help everyone to find any assets in the collection easily.

I will ask you a little bit more patience before it's done and ready to go live.

Lunar New Year Event

I couldn't resist and once again I ended up making a time limit season mini pack for the last Itch sale. This time the theme was the Lunar New year: firecrackers, south-east Asian inspired props and tigers. I always enjoy making these small packs :)

This is not available anymore on Itch, but you can always find it in our Patreon archive ;)

Main Minifantasy Asset Pack Release

Minifantasy - Mounts

Minifantasy - Mounts is already published! This has been a challenging asset pack to make. It wasn't about the difficulty, but the number of layers involved instead. 

Each one of the six humanoid characters has an independent layer for every compatible mount, and for every animation of that mount. I wanted the rider and the mount to blend smoothly, so many of the rider animations are made exclusively to fit each mount movement, the head bumping timings and other details have been carefully made to make the composition nice and cool.

 On top of the rider layers for 18 already existing animals in the Minifantasy collection, I have also added 2 more mounts and 3 vehicles. The vehicles have been especially fun to make!
