If you like my work, help me continue to make it by supporting me on Patreon!

My Patreon is not just for my personal artwork, but also to help fund the creation of new tutorials, including revising and expanding/finishing my popular Skin tutorial.  

all the skin tones from Part II will be repainted, plus 6+ additional skin tones

Patreon backers have exclusive access:
  • Sketches & work-in-progress images
  • Step-by-step full resolution images of each new painting
  • Early access to all new work
  • Exclusive access to in-progress tutorials
  • Print discounts
I want to offer video tutorials and recordings but first I must meet my goal of $60 per month. This goal will help fund a solid state drive to speed up my old computer so that I can record without serious lag issues.  
My Patreon is 50% of the way there, and I need your help to make this goal a reality! Patrons get exclusive access to ALL videos, but all videos will be available to the public, either released free or made available for purchase on Gumroad.

If you enjoy what I do or have been helped by my tutorials in the past, please consider showing your support by becoming one of my Patrons.

My updates here are erratic sometimes; I live with Major Depressive Disorder and had a severe episode a few years back that I am still recovering from. It affected my concentration and memory pretty badly, so even when I am well enough to paint I am very, very slow. If you want more frequent updates (work in progress shots, sketches, etc) follow my Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, or Facebook. :)

navate Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
I'm sorry, I don't know you or the girl you mentioned, and I am not a therapist or a mental health specialist. If you are concerned for her, look up suicide hotlines or emergency services for where she lives and contact her personally to support her. Don't post around for help on random artists' walls--it's manipulative to publicly drag strangers into your personal crisis. 

I'm very sorry for this situation and I hope your friend gets the help she needs, because I've been there. But please understand that contacting me about this is inappropriate.
Feuersteincomics Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2017   Artist
Sorry, I kinda panicked and saw your profile name in her friends-list.
So I thought you knew her.
And I didn't knew who else I could contact in that matter - so I hope you understand.

(btw. she seems better now)

♥ I wanted to spread a little love through the DA community,
and wanted to let you know that you're important, and needed,
and you are valuable, and very talented. Some days it's hard to 
remember that you're valued, and that your existence is remarkable!

♥ If you're ever having a crappy day, please remember that you're not 
expendable & you are needed in this world.

Your skin tutorial is awesome! I look forward to the next instalments!
