I'm Matthew L. Hornbostel. I'm an indie game dev, video director, vfx artist, eBay and Etsy vendor, painter, scribbler of drawings. I run about a dozen interconnected websites and am a seller on Itch.IO and eBay.
My eBay account, with seller name mtthornb, has 340+ positive ratings, and I often sell handmade artworks there, but so far my reputation on Itch.IO has yet to be similarly firmly established with positive reviews or ratings. I do think the content I've released here is pretty solid quality and variety, and very inexpensive, so I'm hoping my releases in this venue will succeed soon too.
MINIATURE MULTIVERSE (INDIE GAME):
I'm releasing an intriguing art-game called Miniature Multiverse, an indie virtual tour of miniature fantasy worlds in a first-person view. If that goes well, it could lead to a lot of my other imaginative productions getting off the ground sooner than would otherwise be the case.
That is showcased with website MiniatureMultiverse.com.
Release is sometime around April-June 2019 [roughly].
STOCK MEDIA COLLECTIONS:
In the process of making games and videos, I've created tons of:
-1500+ texture maps, including a wide variety of seamless diffuse textures plus a lot of related specular, opacity, bump and normal maps.
-150+ compositable video VFX elements, recorded against blue or black, often in HD, often 60 or 120 fps. You can get those here too.
-25+ 3d assets. My plan is to actively expand what I'm selling in this category, to include over 100 different 3d modeled nature assets [.fbx and .obj with related textures] for 3d scenes by the end of 2019.
SALES AND FREEBIES:
I have sales posted every now and then, typically during holidays or big events or when I'm about ready to release something new; for example the Mid Winter sale from Feb. 2-10, 2019 is scheduled to coincide with launch of the 'Snow and Sand' 3d asset pack here [probably on Feb. 8 or 9]. Often near the end of a sale, a completely new product will be posted. When a sale's active that usually means a modest discount on individual products and a better deal with a larger percentage discount, on multiple items, bundled together.
A few of the segments of my stock media are downloadable for free on TriumphantArtists.com. I have also posted 'falling snow' and 'blood spray' clips free here on Itch.IO. And early on, there are a limited number of complete asset packs being handed out for free here, that is free download keys posted on occasion, in hopes that will result in a first wave of positive ratings/reviews from the people who download them.
Again: even now in 2019, I am still giving a few more download keys away for free! Look at that here before the links are all gone! <- I'd appreciate ratings here if you find the content useful!
