Personal Quote: Sometimes, though it can be scary, you must change your path.
Hey everyone!

First off, I wanna greet my new watchers! I haven't been super active on DA because of school. 

As the semester and year comes to a close I am making some new plans for my art. Im a Sophomore in college and I am trying to develop my concept art portfolio. I'd like to focus more on my personal work and my comic Fallacy. 

In other news, I'm creating a Patreon! :iconpatreonplz:

I plan to have it up and running mid January. I feel this could be an option for those who want to follow my work from start to finish. My patreon would have posts multiple times a week.  I currently don't post most of my college work anywhere online, however I would post all process, critiques, and final images via Patreon. 

What else would I provide through Patreon? (These are goals that will be set based on how much I make monthly.)
:bulletred: Image/ Video Tutorials on basic digital illustration in Photoshop. Topics include:
    - How to color scanned traditional inks/pencils
    - Lineart/ Base Coloring/ Cell Shading
    - Speed Painting
:bulletblue: Lessons on creating characters and creatures such as:
    - Anatomy of humans and animals/ How to draw
    - Stylizing
    - Creature Design
    - Characters and Environments
:bulletpurple: The workings for Fallacy. (Summer Project)
    - Concepts
    - Characters
    - Pages

Overall, Patrons who support me will get a look into my world and ideas. They will get to follow my progress as an Illustration Major in college. And, I will share my processes and resources that have helped me improve over the years.
Plus, eventually, I will be sharing exclusive content of Fallacy through Patreon once I get the project flowing better.

I feel Patreon is a good option for me to try and make some money to help support costs for college. As much as I would love to do consistent commission work, I'm not sure I can promise that. I will attempt to do commissions in addition to Patreon, but they will be spread out. Over winter break I may be up for a few commissions but we'll see. I just have so much personal work I want to do.

I have many hopes for Patreon. Out of curiosity, are any of my watchers patrons?

Thank you for reading!

As a treat, enjoy this preview of my last final for Digital Illustration! ^^

Hi there! :) I am happy that Fallacy has started now, it looks awesome (and the more happy I am that it seems to be about feral animals and not about anthros, or did I miss something?). But I also wanted to ask what became of that other comic of yours, "Imagine"?

Also IMAGINE I'm saving the story to adapt into an animation at some point instead ^^

Yes Fallacy is an anthro comic but my character Aufua remains in his feral form for his own reasons ^^

Oh, I´m sorry to hear that, because I don´t like anthros and will probably lose interest :( ... but we will see.

I wanted to ask you if it was okay if I made some fan art of your characters with your permission because your designs are off the charts and you are such a very talented artist:la: but if not that is okay :)

Feel free to draw me fan art ^^ Just send me a link so I can see too! ;)
