Now that I've lured you in with the promise of free art, I have you right where I want you!
What is Patreon?
I have a PATREON!
The short version: "Wow, I like your work. Here's some money".
The long version: Patreon is a way for artists to earn cash directly from their fans. In exchange for a monthly pledge, patrons receive special access to content that is not released elsewhere on the web. It's a mutually beneficial relationship - artists receive much-needed financial support, and patrons get to enjoy their rewards while feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.
What this means for my watchers:
My drawings will continue to be freely available on deviantArt and tumblr, just as they always have been. Patrons will receive bonus content, including behind-the-scenes info on how I create my artwork. Details on pledge amounts and the corresponding rewards are listed on my Patreon page. Patrons take precedence when commissions slots open up, and most months there will be an option to vote for what fanart I should draw.
Where does the money go?
☆ College loans
☆ My ridiculously expensive medication
Any leftover funds will go toward buying better art equipment and producing more drawings for all of you ♡
Can't afford to donate? No worries! I don't expect to make bank with this arrangement, but doppelgangergrl suggested that I give it a try, so I figured eh, why the hell not. Who knows? Maybe I'll end up with grocery money at the end of every month
Examples of past free sketches:
Submissions will close in a week. I look forward to reading about your chars
THE WINNER IS Chronorin! I won't be able to start on the sketch for a few more days, though
