Hey guys,

I hope you've have a lovely 2016 so far.

I've had my Patreon account since August 2014, but I've recently made some changes to it and added a some new rewards. For $3 a month, you can receive a special postcard featuring a piece created specially for that month. Patrons will also have the opportunity to see my works-in-progress before anyone else. The rewards increase with the increase in pledge amount, similar to kickstarter. However, rather than funding a single project, you would be funding my work on a continuous basis.

I'm currently developing a comic based on a female Robin Hood type character. The comic will be posted for free viewing on the web, but all the character sketches and other info will be posted exclusively to Patreon. I've already started posting things there.

Hi! Happy almost February! I was wondering if you had some advice? I always love your fanart, it's fantastic! OLICITY!! ♥ ♥  Your fanart - no matter who! - always looks exactly like the real actors/actresses and I was wondering if you had any tips for drawing real people? Mine are always off somehow...buts yours are so wonderful! I wondered if you had some technique or lineart basics or anything to help out being as amazing an artist as you are! :)

Hi. Well, the main thing is to draw from references, not from your head. Find photos of the people you want to draw and study their features closely. Basically, learn how to draw. My high school art teacher gave this advice, "Draw what you see, not what you know." So being able to perceive, observe, and draw the details is very important. But this skill only comes with lots of practice. Drawing is a physical activity, so the more you practice the better you will get.

It's that way with everyone. If I go for a long time without drawing anything, my skills begin to wane. It's not that I forgot how to draw, but it just takes time for everything to flow. Don't be afraid to start over if something just isn't working. It can be frustrating, but just take a step back, do something else, and then come back to the piece with fresh eyes. 

I hope these tips help. Let me know if you need any more advice. :)
