I am an Illustrator, Concept Artist and the creator of "The Modern Dragon".
What is The Modern Dragon?
The Modern Dragon is the blog where I post illustrations and stories about the lives of dragons in our day and what they get up to.
Each illustration I create for The Modern Dragon is a labour of love and I put great care in making them unique and full of character. Make sure you check it out here: The Modern Dragon
I work both digitally and traditionally. An image would start as a pencil or digital sketch, go through digital line-work, gets printed and then transferred to illustration board. The end result is a traditional watercolour and acrylic painting.
I would love to create art more regularly for the Modern Dragon with a view to creating a book. However, this takes time and money. If you wonderful folks could help me earn more money for my time it would go a long way to helping me realize this goal! You can help me by picking a pledge level so that I can receive your agreed amount with every finished illustration. Alternatively perhaps inquire about buying a Modern Dragon coloring book or buy some awesome prints at my InPrint store.
Do you do anything other than modern dragons?
I am also an experienced Concept Artist having worked in the 3D animation industry for 10 years and I have a variety of styles that I enjoy working in. The following are some character designs, prop design and a creature design I created while at Triggerfish Animation Studios, Cape Town, South Africa. From time to time I would like to offer Character, Prop and Creature design tutorials. Rough Sketch Phase. Polished Character. Props. Creature Design.
Sometimes I just want to create an epic painting, either traditionally or Digitally.
I love dark fantasy, grim warriors and of course dragons!
Okay! I'm interested but... what is Patreon?
For those of you unfamiliar with how Patreon works watch this little video: What is Patreon
I would like Patreon to be a place where I can share my art both for the Modern Dragon and other illustrations, as well as tutorials for both digital and traditional art, with those who love the work I do and want to support me in the endeavour to create more art, more regularly. It would also be a great place to interact with you and hear from you what you would like to see.
Lets talk rewards!
- Please take a look at the different pledge levels available for more details, even the smallest contribution when made by many people adds up to BIG difference.
- I will make various things available to those who pledge their hard earned monies. Including PSDs when I'm working digitally, Clean line work (colouring in pages), step by step behind the scenes tutorials of artworks, as well as access to the Hi Res images of the completed artworks. In the future I would like to have live stream sessions as well as video tutorials but I'm going to keep it simple to start with.
- Payments would be received for each finished artwork as opposed to a monthly payment. You can limit the amount of artworks you pay for so in the event I have a bumper month and produce 10 artworks, you can limit your pledge to only one or two artworks a month.
Thank you so much already! I hope that should you choose to support my Patreon campaign you will enjoy the artwork and my whole artistic process.
