VFXArabia is creating TD tools (Houdini/3dsmax), breakdowns and tutorials.
90

patrons

About me:
My name is Alaa Al Nahlawi ( علاء النحلاوي ) from Syria with more than ten years of experience which spread over multiple graphic design fields.

I like to consider myself as a VFX TD, it turns out that setting things on fire or wreck them down is one of my hobbies, in addition I really enjoy solving problems.
I mainly work with Houdini and 3ds max they are my bread and butter.

About this Patreon:
As I mentioned above most of the things you will find here are created either using Houdini or 3dsmax and they are more technically oriented rather than producing a beautiful final render, well unless the propose of the tool has to do with rendering.

Patreon tend to hide the post video or picture so for you to know the nature of the stuff I do I encourage you to visit my site were you will find the tools organized with a full description, and also some of them are free for you to try.
www.vfxarabia.co

I will provide the files where you will be able to dig down and see how it's made (nothing packed) so for example if I posted a tool built using a programing language (Vex, script) you will be able to see the code and learn from it. And I promise to put as much notes as possible.

Needless to say, money is a good motivator
I get a fare amount of requests asking for my tools and when I ask for a three digit number they flip out (let's be frank a lot of them are students or on a low budget) and some of the tools take a couple of days to create, so Patreon was the solution and mid ground in this, where artists can get things at a very affordable price and I can get a good income hopefully if I had a lot of patrons, so it's a win-win situation.

How does pledging work?
My Patreon has "charge up front" enabled, so you will be charged as soon as you pledge.
If you want to become my Patreon and it's the end of the month, you might want to wait til the next month or you'll be charged for a month that's almost over.

You can use the charge up front as a way for one time donation
Pledge, cancel, done! You will keep access to the rewards your pledge gained until the end of the month, so be sure to download the stuff you want to keep.

Don't expect miracles!
Also it's my duty not to disappoint you, so I will do my best to create tools more frequently at least one tool a month. The problems I might face will have to do with:
  • Limited time, specially when having tight schedule projects.
  • Sometimes we run out of ideas specially when you wanna create something cool and original.
  • I'm sick or dead. 

And finally thank you guys for reading all of the nonsense above, I really appreciate your support!  =) 

Kindest regards,
Alaa
