About PotatoArtStudios

Welcome to my Patreon page! My name is Lauren Chan and I’ve been drawing animals for clients all across the U.S. and abroad. I specialize in drawing portraits of animals with an emphasis on realistic colors and textures.

Once you become a member of our Potato Patreon family, you’ll have access to all of the previously released tutorials. Please note you will be billed at the time you choose to join my Patreon page. The next billing cycle will be on the FIRST DAY of the next month. The best time to join Patreon is at the beginning of the month to get the most out of your membership. I will post previews of the content planned for the following month so you will know exactly what to expect out of your membership.

Every month I will create two video tutorials. On the first Friday of the month, one video will focus on drawing techniques, art concepts, and tools. On the third Friday of the month, a second video will cover a drawing tutorial from the sketch to the finished piece through real-time and time-lapse video. No steps will be skipped so you can see every action I take. All videos will be filmed in clear HD with voiceover. 

I’ve created hundreds of pet and animal portraits in colored pencil, pastel, graphite, and charcoal. I would like to share the knowledge I’ve accumulated over the years to help you expand your art skills. My goal is to give you the tools that you can easily apply to your own work. Many artists find realism intimidating - I want to break down complex subjects into bite-sized lessons that are easy to follow.

All tutorials will have a complete list of the supplies used if you would like to follow along. I will also include suggestions for supplemental supplies if you own different brands.
