Hi, I’m blacksmoke1033! You may remember me from websites such as Twitter, Twitter, and Twitter. I’m an artist, writer and professional complainer. And I’m on Patreon now. Wow.

Here’s what you can expect to get:

Art / Tutorials / Reviews
I work in a range of styles, including black and white traditional inks, pyrography (wood burning), and loads of digital styles because I can’t seem to pick one and stick to it. I love experimenting and will be trying to try new stuff later this year.
I’ll be sharing; 
- Almost all finished pieces
- WIPs, concepts, doodles, process photos 
- More in depth discussions about produced pieces, as well as all materials listed 
- Mini reviews - I’ll review and recommend existing art supplies here and there, as well as any new stuff I pick up. This could be pens, papers, clay, digital software, anything.  
- Tutorials - some short, and some more in depth text and photo run throughs of how I make some of my art. 

Is it worth it?

Finished pieces should, apart from a few exceptions, be available to view here before made public. Most of my WIPs and sketches are not shown publicly, and if they are, they’re usually delayed (and the finished piece may be here already). Due to the nature of Twitter, in depth information and especially formally written tutorials are not available anywhere publicly. I try to upload a few times a week.

Needless Definitions / Novel Project 
Hi, I’m also writing a novel right now. And a side novel that’s a bit of a joke. And about 10 million backstories. And way too many pages of lore and stuff. My main story is about an exorcist named Calvin, who has 99 problems and a squid man being about 8 of them.
I’ll be sharing;
- artwork surrounding the characters and universe
- some extended blog posts surrounding the project 
- chapters from the main and side projects*

*PLEASE NOTE: chapters are not currently available, and have been delayed indefinitely due to personal reasons. Feel free to adjust your pledge as there’ll be public announcements when they’re made available.

Is it worth it?

If you’re interested in the project, sure! If not, oh well! This is a 3 dollar tier so it’s not incredibly expensive if you want slightly more content. As for chapters, when they ARE released they will never be made available to read for free. I intend to release them over Patreon and eventually physically publish the story. 

Blog Posts / Merch and Sales Advice
I get asked a lot about being an artist, running Kickstarters, running a shop, and other stuff like that. I’d like to write up any useful information and since I can’t do that easily on Twitter, I’ll do it here. 
I’ll be sharing advice on stuff such as 
- life as an artist - dealing with workload, burnout, improving skills
- selling artwork online - finding suppliers, using Etsy, RedBubble, Kickstarter, etc 
- promoting yourself online
- any requests topics 

Is it worth it?

All of this is included in the 2 dollar tier. These are released when I have the time and may not be monthly! What comes first or what’s included in these posts are requests only, so if there’s something you want to see, TELL ME! 

Additional Perks to supporting me:
- Requests! I prioritise artwork, merch and content requests from Patrons above others, and keep your character reference sheets aside, so you’re more likely to get free art!
- Etsy discounts! Ask me for a code depending on your tier for a % off my store!
- Commission discounts! 
- First dibs! If an original piece is available, commission slots are open, or limited quantity merchandise is made, Patrons get a word in before everyone else. 
- Existential crises! I’ll try not to put too much of my moaning behind a paywall. 
- Physical Rewards! Some of my tiers recieve mail from me every month! All worldwide shipping is included! 

Want to find me or support me elsewhere?

I’d love to make more pins! They take 3-4 weeks to produce so would ideally like to make one either every month or every 2 months. This would cover expenses and they would be included in the monthly mail tiers when ready! Vote for favourite designs, see requests, see the process!
