What is Patreon?

Patreon helps fund artists by letting supporters become patrons.

The artist sets goals, such as what they will do with the pledged money. And the patrons pledge a monthly amount - in my case: $1, $5, $10, or $30 you choose your contribution.

In return, you get rewards - and lots of them! Early first look of new paintings, exclusive WIP images, drawing templates for you to use, video tutorials, prints, original paintings, and more! Come check out my Patreon rewards.

And have a wonderful day!
