Club Fur is dedicated to the idea of helping out both new and existing anthropomorphic avatar users to find, meet and express themselves with friends. Very often a new user will come in and find that there's a great base avatar for their character species and go right ahead modifying it or using the base to feel more at home with their character while they familiarize themselves with the app. This makes the experience so much smoother and allows new users to get into socializing almost immediately.
Despite this, some users find that the species they're looking for (even if it's somewhat common like a horse) simply doesn't have a base model. While it is an unfortunately reality that not every single animal species is going to have an anthropomorphic base model (looking at you, Tripod Fish!), we think we can help as a community.
Individually, commissioning a custom avatar of your species of choice can range in cost from $150 to over $1000. That's awesome if VRChat is your livelihood and you don't mind spending money on it, but some people really don't know if this app or others are for them. But what if a group of users got together and individually helped make this happen at a very low cost?
We're going to be working with @Meelo to make a public Raccoon avatar available to everyone- in both gender options! The goal is simple- to get together a group of trusted users who would like to submit somewhere between $10-$30 to a Patreon dedicated towards putting together the Raccoon. All money is forwarded directly to Meelo and when Meelo is able (in about three months or so), all contributors will be able to fill out a poll to determine aspects of the avatar's physicality (digitigrade feet vs plantigrade, tall vs. short, etc.) as well as the default outfit design. Eventually, late stage WIP photos will be shared with the community at large until the avatar is released both as a public avatar pedestal in the club's avatar dressing room and as a model file freely available for download.
I'll also be porting the Raccoon avatar over to High Fidelity and Neos for easy, cross platform use. Sweet!
For now, the program is going to be kind of small and is going to include 15-20 individuals including myself. Given that this is the very first time we'll be trying this, I can't guarantee there will be future programs. However, should there be additional ones we'll shoot out another survey after the current public avatar is complete and begin the process all over again. For now, have some examples of Meelo's fantastic work and feel free to send messages in General with comments, concerns, feedback, and general ideas! Thank you guys for being awesome and for making this server/world what it is!
In summary, by supporting this Patreon you agree that:
-Once we have reached a good number of contributors and determine a collective price, you have 24 hours to cancel before we run through a patreon charge.
-Once charges have been processed, we cannot refund. All funds go directly to the artist.
-You will be given the file one week before the public model file release.
-Due to Meelo's current queue, the model will begin production three months from now, in late July/early August.
