Hi! My name is Erica June, though you probably know me best as ‘aurahack’. I’m an illustrator and designer from Montréal, Canada. I’ve been a full-time game developer for close to 5 years and a freelance illustrator for 3. In 2015, I set myself the goal of drawing one 30-40 minute warmup painting every weekday and I’ve continued the streak since, recently surpassing my 300th warmup! I’ve learned a lot in that time, and now I want to put that to good use.
My goal with this Patreon is to do more. To keep making warmups, to do more character art, more concept art, more doodles, more streams. Over the course of my time as a freelancer and game developer, I’ve realised my heart lies with my fans and making things for you, with the eventual goal of being self-sufficient so I can do that full-time. I hope you’ll help me make that a reality!
So what will you be doing on here?Art! So much art! My warmups will continue every morning with various means to enjoy them. High res files, PSDs, videos—all that good stuff.
I’ll also be diving more into fan art and character art. You’ll be able to suggest and vote on new characters you’d like to see and as this all grows to help support me, I’ll be able to spend the time on more of this, which I absolutely love doing.
Of course, I will still be doing larger-scale projects and environment art. That, concept art, illustrations, thumbnails, random night drawings, streaming--that will still all continue and grow with the time I can dedicate to this.
So yeah, art. A lot of it, all for you. <3
What cool bonuses do I get for supporting you?High resolution files of everything! PSDs! The ability to vote/suggest characters and ideas! Videos! Backer-exclusive prints! Feedback! And this is just to start—I have other ideas and I’ll be able to expand on them as you help this Patreon grow. Things like better videos, tutorial streams--I would love to start teaching as much as drawing, because there’s nothing I love more than seeing my fans get inspired by what I do.
Alright, I’m inYay, thank you! <3
Supporting me here will help me do more and better art for everyone, but especially you. As I grow here, I’ll be able to dedicate more time to this and I hope you will help take me there. <3
