Hello hello! Just wanna let you know that I have made several edited timelapses of sketching on my streams and put them on Patreon, with several more waiting, and a few being made. The video content will be locked to $5+ Tiers. For now, it's timelapses, but I'd like to expand at some point. The video had all unrelated things cut out, got cropped to cut out my camera, menus and all parts of the stream that are not painting. I hope you will like seeing them. There's no audio nor commentary, and the speed is nice enough to not be too fast nor too slow. I am actively thinking about what kind of video content I would enjoy making. I have very mixed feeling about making instructional content, as it has been overdone to hell, while production standards have been skyrocketed. I hope to think of something that I can realize. Until then, if you're a patron, I hope you will enjoy the timelapse videos.

Here's a nice Clip Studio Paint brush for my Patrons All of my new brushes will be available solely on my Patreon, except for a small Redux pack I am preparing. That reduced but premium selection will contain some newer brushes including this one, and will be available in my shops. Patrons get a chance to play with all the brushes I use and make(*that I feel are alright) and I hope to encourage them to explore and change it! This brush is an evolution of my basic Rough Expressive, toned down in contrast a bit, rounded, a bit lighter and has all the new features like Smear Mixing and Jitter set, but usually disabled by default. You can enable it in the Tool Properties. In its default form, it's super fun for quick expressive sketches. Become a Patron and get it here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/csp-brush-rough-58558289!

Here's something for those who want to peak behind the scenes of my artwork. I painted some thumbnails over a course of several streams, as little warm up thingies or demonstrations and I want to share it in full to my Patrons. They can see my chaotic layering and improvisation in the CSP file attached, to see how I change some thumbnails almost completely if I don't feel like it. Check the post out here. You have to be a Patron at any Tier to see. I will continue posting Patreon updates to my Journal, if you don't mind. If you want to support what I do and get high resolution images, CSP brushes not available publicly, or just want to tip me for good work, consider pledging at https://www.patreon.com/zhillustrator There's also an idea on my mind, if I keep the Core, to start a subscription here, so people have it all in one place. Let me know if you think that would be a nice idea. My subs would get stuff that I share on Patreon. Thank you! Živko
