Becca Gowdy is creating Fantasy Concept Art
1

patron

$1
per month


My name is Becca Gowdy, also known as Bex, and I'm a fantasy illustrator. I work from home as a freelance illustrator and make prints, small original watercolors, and design products that I take to craft fairs.

Creating art is my full-time job and memberships through Patreon are how I make a living. By pledging to become a member, you help me improve the quality of my work. Plus all my patrons have a say in what I do next by just seeing my work and engaging with me. 

This Patreon is more than just making pretty art: it's taking a journey to new worlds. All of my art will eventually compiled into companion books for each fantasy novel. Eventually I want to do this for many other writers.


I'm making fantasy art with a twist: illustrated explanations of races, history, magic systems, technology, and more! Below is a list of my member-only benefits. You can use the links to see more detailed descriptions of each tier and what I offer.
( You can see all my past posts in this handy dandy archive!)

Call to Adventure - $1/month
Support my work at a basic level. You get first access to all non-exclusive posts. See reward details here.

Hidden Lore - $5/month
You get access to all my spoiler content and concept art See reward details here.

Disembodied Voices - $10/month
One additional, patron-exclusive process video each month, plus WIPs of art. See reward details here.

Mysterious Mcguffins - $20/month
Every two months I'll mail you a personalized art package! See reward details here.



I like to keep my art updates in one place--to be able to continually pump out art and get paid for it. I know, getting paid for what they want to do is every artist's dream but I detested the idea of a "starving artist". Everyone always told me growing up that art wasn't a real job.  But I could see  working another job just to support my passion "on the side". It's like working to have a life, and then work becomes your life. That wasn't for me. With Patreon, I can continue doing what I love and reward my fans for their love. Your money offers me freedom, and goes towards living, buying new equipment, printing costs, distributing work to my fans and clients, and show or festival costs.
