New! I have set up a streaming schedule calendar for my Twitch Stream.

What to help out? You can send me tips via PayPal.

Follow me on Twitter to know when, and what, I am streaming.

Join the discussion at the Phantascene Productions Discord server.

More screen captures of the games I play and pictures to inspire 3D modeling can be found at the Phantascene Productions Tumblr.

Become a patron and support this site for as little as $1 a month at Phantascene's Patreon page.

Please note: While they are truely appreciated, any and all tips (or other funds) are non-refundable gifts that will be used to help me pay my bills, improve my stream, and work on writing novels. I say this because I simply can not afford to refund money I have used to pay a bill, so please understand that such donations are non-refundable when you make them. Thank you.

PS4 Destiny Pre-order

Sometimes you need to scream and start over

I spent a few days stressing over what to say about the past few weeks, past month and a half, hell, the past four an a half years, but every time I started to explain why my life is such a mess I kept thinking – no one wants to hear all of that. So, […]
