Hello, my name is Allison Fahnstrom, also known as GreywaterAlley and Teeze on other sites, and I made this Patreon page to help support my adoptables projects (and perhaps a few other creative projects as well).

So you may be wondering “Exactly what is Patreon? And what are adoptables?” Allow me to explain. Patreon is a site that allows people to support the creators that they admire (artists, writers, musicians, etc.) by pledging any monthly dollar amount they would like to give. Adoptables are a special type of art that people can purchase for use in their stories, art, or roleplays. Characters, clothing, items, and vehicles are generally the most common types of adoptables. When you acquire an adoptable you usually get a reference sheet (a drawing that shows the design and possibly has some info on it) as opposed to a traditional piece of art, however adoptables come in all forms.

I haven't been making adoptables for very long but I have been getting more into it recently and I would love to be able make it a more substantial part of my creative life. And that is where you come in.
You can become my Patron for as little as $1 for each Patron Only post that I make, though you are able to pledge as much as you want. You will automatically be charged on the 1st of the month for each of the Patron Only posts made in the month before, so if you pledge $1 and I make 2 PO posts then you will get charged $2 at the start of the next month. You are capable of putting a limit on the amount that you get charged though, so you never have to worry about going over your budget if I make a lot of posts.

You won’t just be giving me your money though, you are able to choose rewards based on the amount that you pledge. $1 pledges for example will get complete access to everything I post: free posts and the Patron Only ones which include such goodies as sneak peeks, tip and tricks, first looks at tutorials, and the chance to get adoptables that are not posted for adoption anywhere else, among other things. To pick which reward you get just scroll down the rewards list on the right side of this page until find the reward you want. You can then pledge any amount at or above the amount listed for that reward and it will be awarded to you after I’ve received your payment.

And don’t worry if you can no longer pay the amount you pledge, you can change or delete your pledge at any time*. You can edit or delete your pledge by finding me in the left side of your homepage and clicking the “edit pledge” link and from there you can edit the amount (this is also where you can add in the limit to what you’re charged) or click the “Delete Pledge” button. And if you are once again able to make a monthly pledge I would love to have you return to being my Patron; but remember, I do make a few free posts for everyone to enjoy, so you can still follow me even if you are not pledging anything.

*Please note that because I am charging on a per-post basis if I make any Patron Only posts before you cancel your pledge that you will still be charged for those posts at the start of the next month, you just won’t be charged for any made after you cancel.

The kinds of Patron Only posts from me that my Patrons can expect:
  • Adoptable WIP previews and batch/theme sneak peaks (aka a heads up that I’m putting out another batch)
  • Step-by-Step images and Tutorials
  • Creator’s Tips and Tricks I’ve learned (including info on developing the concept for the species, drawing them, figuring out genetics, and coming up with a world for the species to inhabit/come from)
  • Adopter’s Tips and Tricks I’ve learned (including what to add to an adoption form, how to come up with an interesting name, and how to develop an intriguing character)
  • Special Adoptables just for Patrons to adopt (Most are likely to be first-first-served, simple naming contests, or some other form of free contest; but some may possibly require an additional charge to adopt. Those ones are guaranteed to be cool though.)
  • Special alternative linearts that my Patrons can ask me to add their adopted characters/pets to (free of any additional charge, but only the adopts gotten from me)
  • News (my adoptables, life, other creative projects I’m working on, live streams, etc.)
  • Perhaps more?!

If you aren't able to patronize right now you can still follow me for free on here, as well as @GreywaterAlley on twitter and tumblr and PeachTreeKittens on deviantArt.

If you would like to support me, but don't want to become a patron you can make one time donations to me on my Ko-fi page: https://ko-fi.com/greywateralley
