LoreCraft is creating Sculptures and Dark Fantasy Art
20

patrons

Hey all,
    I'm trying to re-enliven the viability of the "Renaissance Man".  I'm technically an academic, working on a Phd in behavioural and brain sciences, but I'm also big into fitness, and various artistic endeavours.
   I used to play with clay when I was a kid, and I always enjoyed the process of transforming thoughts into physical objects.  Mainly, I am drawn to the Fantasy Genre, full of it's various creatures of both the dark and the light, and this is primarily the content that I both enjoy making and seem best able to generate.  
I never took my artistry seriously - but I always wondered... could I actually do this?   I reached a point where it was "now or never".  The convergence of enough time, space, and spare change allowed me to invest in some blocks of clay, sculpting tools, and even an airbrush gun and paints.  I've never had any professional training in this area, so whatever you see me produce, it's likely me stretching myself further into unknown territory - space I've never occupied before as I test my limits.  
     So far, I am really enjoying this.  I love making these, and I'm super pleased with the responses I've gotten, both on and offline.   
     But that all said, I am literally making these on my kitchen table, in my kitchen.  I have the airbrush out in the little garage I restored (it was falling down around my ears) in this studio flat I rent, and clay and paints get expensive!  So anyone that feels like supporting the work, please feel free!  Any contribution would be enormously appreciated, no matter how small.  
    If I am doing this in my kitchen with little supplies and limited space, imagine what we could do with a proper shop!  
    Any questions, comments, please feel free to contact me, and thanks all for your interest and support!  -  Nicholas Brown

P.S.  I want to offer more perks here at Patreon, so if anyone has some suggestions for reward ideas that are feasible, feel free to send me a message.

Restock Clay supplies and airbrush paints.
   Yes, I can sculpt all day, but the stock runs low!  Need to resupply clays, polymer clays, resin, and airbrush paints, as well ass accessories (cleaning tools and solutions, sandpaper, etc).
