Amanda Lien is creating Art and Comics
42
patrons
The name is Amanda, or my username, alienfirst, is probably more recognizable. I live in the Pacific Northwest, making art and drinking coffee.

I do a good many art related things, from personal work, to art for conventions, Bunday (a bunny for your Sunday), teaching art to teenagers, and most recently, developing two different webcomics. I adore creating interesting characters and beasties, along with drawing cute to creepy.

Supporting this Patreon will get you:

  • Access to supporter only posts containing sneak peaks at current projects, and concept work for comics and/or illustration pieces.
  • Sketches and concepts only available to supporters.
  • Early posts of comic pages and Bundays.
  • And more for the future. (Tentative plans for Photoshop instructional things and monthly voted on art.)

The money made through Patreon will help me continue to create art for a living,  pursue more opportunities for conventions and potential product to sell, as well as to finally get two long standing comic projects from the concept phase to the actual "comic" phase (with the additional help from my husband who is the key lore maker and writer for one of those projects).

Here's a breakdown for what gets posted (reiterated in the rewards side panel):

  • Free (just for following and visiting): General art posts. If you follow me on Tumblr you might see some crossposting happen.
  • $1: Standard art and WIP posts.
  • $5: Standard art and WIP posts, layered PSD files (typically once a month), Bunday requests.
  • NSFW $1 and $5: Same as the standard, just may see the occasional NSFW post. Here to ensure that people who don't want things like excessive gore, nudity, sexual content, etc, can easily avoid it! If supporting at the "spicy" tiers, you are acknowledging that you are 18 years or older. (NSFW posts will often mirror those I post on my NSFW Twitter account. As Tumblr decided to rid itself of all adult content, I am left with a locked Twtter account and Patreon tiers as safe methods to share any material I create that fits that mold. NSFW content will not be available on Ko-fi at this time.)

Goals
65% complete
This amount covers a significant portion of necessary bills I need to pay every month. At this goal, I indulge and will be purchasing a printer. One that can handle smaller prints to larger prints up to 13x19". I'd like to be able to handle convention prints on my own to the quality level I'd want, both for ease of use, and to lower my print costs. All Patrons above $10 will receive a print in the mail, the first ones off the machine! (Printer purchased if this goal is achieved in two consecutive months.)
