Join the chat on Discord! (+ text + startup incubator)

September 8, 2020

Hi everyone!

A few of you have been asking for this, so I have just created a Discord server to be able to more conveniently discuss all things related to VGC or VPaint! Please come and say hi at the link below to create some momentum!

https://discord.gg/ywY4Pcv

Feel free to share this invite link to anyone interested in this project :)

Meanwhile, I have also made a little progress on text rendering. I have integrated the libtess2 library to VGC, so I can now fill the interior of the letters as it is supposed to be (not just trace their contour!)

There are still a few things to implement before the API is really usable, but things are getting better.

Finally, note that in the past weeks, I have started a process to join a startup incubator and write a proposal to secure more funding for this project. The current plan is still to avoid private investors to ensure that your interests always come first. So I'm only reaching to French public organisations whose goal is to promote local startups to look better on the global stage. Hopefully, this will help ensure the sustainability of this project and attract more people.

Note that it's super important in order to obtain these funds to convince the committee that many people are interested in the project and that we can create amazing art with it! So don't forget to join the Discord at https://discord.gg/ywY4Pcv , share your artwork, and invite your friends, so we can make a strong proposal and get the money :)

Cheers and thank you all for the support!

Become a sponsor

Excited about VGC? Join the sponsorship program to help us make it happen!

Indeed, we made the choice to be funded by future users like yourself rather than business investors, to ensure that your interests always come first.

How does it work?

For only $1 per month (Bronze Sponsor), you get instant access to all exclusive news as well as all alpha and beta versions of VGC. This allows you to try out VGC right now, which is a unique opportunity to provide early feedback and shape the tools the way you want them to be. Welcome to the team!

For $3 per month (Silver Sponsor), you also get a perpetual license key for the upcoming VGC Illustration 1.0 and VGC Animation 1.0. Higher amounts (Gold Sponsor and above) also give you software upgrades for up to 10 years! It's basically like pre-ordering VGC at a discounted early bird price.

You can either pay in USD via Patreon, or in EUR via Tipeee. You can cancel your monthly payments at any time, and still keep your rewards, no questions asked: we trust you to contribute for a number of months which seems fair to you. Alternatively, you can also choose to make a one-time payment via Paypal rather than monthly contributions. Just click on the chosen button and follow the instructions. Thank you!
