Hello my lovely snowflakes!!!
I've been reworking my Patreon page
, mostly because I wanted to make it prettier and because I think I missed the point of achievable goals and interesting rewards (I was new to the page but I've learnt more about it now).
What is Patreon?
Patreon is a website that helps creators raise funds to help them keep creating awesome content while giving nifty rewards to their supporters (aka Patrons)! It's like a kickstarter campaing that funds your projects on a monthly basis for an indifinitely period of time. Patrons can pledge any amount of money they want to any artist of their choice to help them keep creating more content and depending on the amount pledged, said patron receives a fancy reward in return!
Why patron me?
I'll be honest... I've been waiting for seven years to finally have the chance to be what I always wanted to be: an artist. I spent seven years working hard to complete my Biology degree and my Conservation Biology Master, putting art aside and considering it a hobby in my free time. Always dreaming of finishing my studies so that I could focus on creating art and having it as my job! But even working all month on commissions I don't make enough income to live on my own yet, but it'd really hurt me to have to resort to find a 'real
' job because that would force me to put art aside again and restrain my creativity.
This is where you can help me! By pledging anything you can to me on a monthly basis you'll be helping me keep art as my career and help me focus solely on creating more art! Even $1 goes a long way! <3
What are your goals?
I've set different milestone goals depending on the amount you help me raise, but I want to focus on those I consider to be more important!
- Monthly videotutorials: after we reach $50/month I'll make one videotutorial a month with voice-over explanations of each step in both ENGLISH and SPANISH!
- Monthly sketchbooks: after we reach $150 I'll make a PDF file compiling all my drawings, sketches, works in progress and even step by steps and email it to all my patrons!
- Aequinoctium Manga: if we reach $450 I'll have enough to focus on creating Aequinoctium's manga! I'll post at least one chapter per month when we reach this milestone!
- Artbook: I've always wanted to make an artbook of my own . If you help me raise $750 I'll make an artbook with unpublished illustrations and I'll give a digital copy to all my patrons! A few lucky patrons (probably the ones that pledge the most) will receive a physical copy too!
What do we get in return?
I've set up many different rewards from small amounts of money to larger quantities! You can check them all in my patreon page
but here's a brief summary of what you can receive:
- Access to sketches and works in progress that are only published in my patreon page!
- Acess to low, mid or high-res SAI files of my drawings upon request!
- See my videotutorials before they go live for everyone else!
- Have your name and website included in my video descriptions on Youtube!
- Show me your art and receive critiques or have me red-line over your art to help you fix anatomy issues!
- Discounts on commissions!
- Art, from uncoloured sketches to complete illustrations or short mangas of your stories!
- Video shout-outs to you, your website or your projects!
- Art lessons of 20 hours a month, spread out however we see fit!
All my patrons will have their names, websites and art featured in my profile page and a journal, for as long as you're my patron!!
