About Elaine Tipping

Hey there!
So, I'm Elaine (or TriaElf9 online) and I'm a comic artist living in Japan. I've been doing web comics since 2005, and through my love of creating, I decided that I wanted this to be my job!



My works
My main comic is a queer high fantasy comic, Pathways: Chronicles of Tuvana. I also make a loyal adaptation of the Peter Pan novel, Princess Retribution (which has been revamped and published through Scout Comics as Princess Revolution), Wayfarer of Vyrandel, and Bellanaris a Dragon Age fan comic. This Patreon also supports my autobiographical comic about living in Japan, Aichi Adventures. On the side, I do gag strips, illustrations, and other fun things.



I also dabble in fanart, which varies depending on what things I like, so you will see those comics and illustrations posted here as well.



My works can be found on a few sites:

Pathways here and on Deviant Art, Peter Pan is here and on Deviant Art, and Bellanaris can be read here. Aichi Adventures, funded by this patreon, is uploaded here and on Deviant Art.
As for my online presence, you can find me on Deviant ArtTumblrTwitter and Facebook!
I am currently most active on Twitter.



How Patreon figures in
All of my comics are offered online for free, and that's not going to change. However, most of my time is spent doing comics, and like most living beings, I need to eat, pay for healthcare and the like, and feed my cats, my wife and our baby ^_- The more that comes from the Patreon, the less time I spend doing side jobs and the more time I can devote to comics for you all to enjoy!



How does Patreon work?
For those of you who are new to Patreon, it's a pretty cool system! As a patron of my comics, you'll pay monthly. This means, if you choose the $3 dollar reward, for example, you will only pay 3 dollars a month. Plus, you'll get the perks that come with that level! You can also set a limit on how much you want to pay, which makes sure you don't go over budget for the month/year, which is especially important if you're pledging to multiple Patreons.



Perks
To thank you for all your support, there are some pretty awesome perks for patrons! There are some monthly perks like wallpapers, a chibi, a monthly WIP, and exclusive access to any tutorials I do, as well as the tutorial archive. And each level has a few other perks on top of those bonuses! See below for some examples ^_^

Wallpapers (for all patrons!):

Weekly Wips:

Early Art:

Early Comics:

How to Comics Participant:

Adventure Archive:

And so much more! ^_^


Goals
$1,502.99 of $2,000 per month
This would cover some new childcare expenses, as our kiddo gets older, as well as loss of income for my wife at her current job and the loss of my online store due to the pandemic and shipping unreliability from Japan.
This would also cut down on the side jobs I'd need to take, which means more time to spend with my kiddo and on comics for you all! It would also give some peace of mind.
