About Astra Crompton

Hello and welcome to my Patreon page. Chances are that if you wended your way here, you already know who I am. For a quick recap:

I'm Astra Crompton—a multifaceted storyteller, using illustrations, novels & short stories, comics, and games to weave worlds and share adventures. I love to explore my worlds through fashion, cosplay, music, and even recipes from the different cultures in my flagship project, Ul-Zaorith. I am a proud member of the queer community and make a concerted effort to showcase characters with depth from a pro-LBGT and feminist perspective. For this Patreon, I'll focus primarily on my graphic novels and related illustration work, but I hope to offer more prose content, too.

My current comic project is Weaponry, a (sometimes NSFW) romance adventure about pirates in a steampunk fantasy setting. Going strong for 10 years now, I have completed 8 chapters with weekly updates (Mondays), and we are currently on the last chapter to complete the story. This is a passion-project, and a big part of that passion is you! I love interacting with my readers, so please feel free to comment (I read every one of them and try to reply to as many as possible).

While the main portion of the comic has been shared for free on Y!Gallery, SmackJeeves, and DeviantART (to name a few), I also made print copies of the first 4 chapters (which you can find on my website). These included the regular colour chapter pages, along with a sepia origin-story comic for one of the ten main cast members, bonus illustrations, information about the world and characters, planning sketches, and written vignettes to showcase alternate story options. 

But after ten years, Weaponry is nearly finished, which means all of my graphics will need an overhaul. What comes next? The next project will be Angel*Down, a post-apocalyptic paranormal tale about fallen angels in search of redemption. 

Which brings us to what you get for supporting my Patreon! My hope is that you might choose to pitch in a monthly donation to help support this starving artist and her creative dreams. In return for your support, you will receive exclusive access to the remaining Weaponry comic pages and all of Angel*Down going forward, sneak peeks at bonus content, illustrations and sketches, book reviews and process videos, and much more! 

Check out the brand new tiers for the level that best suits your interests and budget. And thank you for your support! You are the fuel that enables this flame to burn so brightly!
