What is Trinity Project?
It's a universe I've been working on! I enjoy the world-building process and finding interesting answers to all the "what if" questions that arise during the creation process. I have chosen to make my ongoing work on that universe available for others to enjoy and participate in. My long term plans involve telling the stories of some of its characters through a comic-style format...But I'm still working on getting ready for that!
If you're interested in seeing the world building that I've already done, all my Trinity Project work is organized into my Gallery Folders. Quick links:
-Character and Species references
-World Information (Writing-heavy)
-Miscellaneous Art (May contain smaller fragments of lore in descriptions)
In addition, you can add your own creativity to the Trinity Project! I don't want to limit people's ability to participate, or burden them with very restrictive rules, so here is all that you need to know before you get started:
1) All Trinity Project species and settings are OPEN.
-Feel free to make your own characters, species, settings, stories, songs, interpretive dances, (or anything else your heart fancies) based on my work. I'd love to see what you come up with!
2) I decide what's "canon" to me, but you aren't required to adhere to it if you don't want to.
-The exception to this is if I'm personally involved in the work (ie, collaboration), I may want it to follow my own sense of canon....But I'm trying to be pretty relaxed, so that shouldn't be too hard!
3) In general, please don't involve my characters in sexual situations.
-You're welcome to create your own characters for this purpose, though!
4) Don't forget about me!
-Don't remove my signature/watermark from my own artwork.
-I'm not going to be a huge stickler about the "attribution" clause in the Creative Commons license. Sometimes, its just unfeasible to expect a proper link-back. However, I would still really appreciate it if you could include a link to my profile somewhere if you use my characters/settings/species/etc in your own creative work.
And now, the boring, soulless legalese part:
5) All copyright-able Trinity Project content is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0).
In English...This means that my art, settings, characters, or other materials that have sufficient development to be considered "copyrightable" have these guidelines attached to them:
-You may make copies, distribute, or transmit the work, and you may remix, adapt, or make derivative works from it (ie, fanart, OCs, etc),
-You must attribute my work/creations to me (but not in any way that suggests that I endorse you or your use of the work)
-You may not use the work for commercial or for-profit purposes (Please see the addendum below),
-If you alter, transform, build upon, or create derivative works of my work, the resulting work must be distributed under this same or a similar license
-It's OK If someone commissions you for a one-off artwork containing Trinity Project species/settings/etc! It's also OK to include your own TP-based commissions or personal works in your sold art book, collection, or anthology.
-The non-commercial rule is primarily there to protect me from direct art theft or serious loss of control over the work/universe. *I wouldn't want someone to start mass-producing and selling *Trinity Project books, graphic novels, shirts, posters, and so on, without my approval or involvement.
And that's it! You're ready to get started!
If you would like to create something based on my work: Go for it, and I would love to see your ideas!
