About Douglas E Knapp

I provide high quality FREE content for you to become a great artists using open source programs like Blender 3d, GIMP and Krita. I also contribute to upgrading the Blender Manual, running Many FB groups and other projects.

For each video that I produce I would like you to contribute, so that I can put more time and better equipment into these videos and have more free time to work on what helps you!

Remember that even contributing 1$ per month is enough to help me reach the goal of doing this full time. There are thousands of Blender users and if only a few hundred of you buy me a beer a  month, I could survive and if a few thousand donated only 1 Euro, I could also survive on that! I think it is a great deal. You give me a buck and I give you a video that takes hours to research and produce.

WHY ON PATREON ?

I believe sharing, transmitting knowledge, learning and collaborate is the most important. Blender Patrion is a totally free tutorial project and part of the free culture ( as Wikipedia, Blender, Krita, Linux, etc... ). All episodes and content around it are released as Creative Commons attribution license. This means I encourage crazy thing like : commercial usage, re-publishing and modifications/derivations for your own project ( 3D models, movies, video-game, fan-art ... everything is possible ). I even offer the source files and I create them using 100% open-source tools.
That's how I like art : Free/Libre.

But how to make a living doing tutorials? I don't want to waste my time with a big website. I don't want to have to work for someone else pushing what they want. I want to give you what you need and want. I want to have a relationship with you! I really don't want to do any marketing or advertising. I want you to be free to experience my work without stress. I don't want to set up paywalls or work with DRM. I want the people from poor lands to have equal access to the rich guys from San Francisco. You need freedom. I just want to make tutorials for you!... Asking for your patronage is the best solution.


PAYMENT INFOS
I ask your sponsor only for new tutorials for Blender and it happens around one time by month But I might do more, especially if I get enough patrons. I would like to do one a week! Patreon offers you the possibility to setup a maximum limit per month. This way, you are totally in control with your budget and safe if you want to patron me.

Thanks for your contributions!

Goals
$3 of $200 per I want my patron to donate to me every time I make a film.
I am running an Nvidia GTX 580. I would love to buy a 2080 ti but that is way out of my budget so I am shooting to get a used 980 TI. It will only take a few patrons to reach this goal!

Once I reach this I can make much better videos for you!
