Hello! I'm Micah and I draw character portraits. I got my start drawing my own RPG characters, ranging from D&D to World of Darkness and several others. These games continue to be a major source of inspiration for me.

So, Micah, what are you offering?

RPG character icons and art. I know that all kinds of different role-players hunt for that one perfect picture to represent their character. Sometimes the search is easy, sometimes it's downright impossible. 

My goal is to provide a resource to role-players. Eventually, I would like to build a gallery full of character art that players are welcome to use. Everyone that contributes to this Patreon will be supporting that cause.


Trump, a superhero character of my own making

To start, I will release small packs of 5-7 icons featuring a single character expressing different emotions. As I work on these more, I may release "theme" packs, such as "superhero team pack 1" or "red-haired dwarf pack 3" for example. A lot of this will depend on my whimsy, which is why I'm doing this as a "per work" set-up instead of "per month." Additionally, patrons will be able to nominate and vote on what types of icon packs I produce.

At first, my icon packs will focus on fantasy RPG characters, such as those from D&D, Exalted, and others. I plan to branch out into other genres. Below you will find some of the genres I hope to work in, and some example settings:

  • modern fantasy (World of Darkness, Dresden Files)
  • superheroes (Mutants and Masterminds)
  • science fiction (Star Trek, Star Wars, Eclipse Phase)
  • and many more!

Most of the character icons will be as generic as possible. So instead of "5th level elven cleric of Corellon," it will just be "elf cleric," or even just "elf" depending on the artwork. When I create enough of these, I plan to open a website with a searchable database of character icons.

Here's a sample! Click on the image to download the icon pack:


And what do my patrons get out of this?

At lower contribution levels, patrons will get to help me decide what kinds of characters I create artwork for. So if you really want to see that elf cleric, or if you're gunning for a masked superhero a la Robin or Green Lantern, you'll get to make your voice heard.

The middle tiers will give you a chance to win a custom icon set or portrait of your character. I'll hold a monthly raffle to see which contributor wins. If you're chosen, I'll contact you directly and we'll work out the details.


At the highest tiers, you are essentially ordering a commission from me. These range from personalized icon packs and waist-up drawings to full-body character illustrations and even a character reference sheet. These rewards do not require you to win in the raffle. They're a guaranteed perk as thanks for you contributing that much to my efforts.

So, Micah, why are you doing this?


My character art has helped me improve my skill and I would like to share that with all of you. By contributing to this, you will be giving me lots of opportunities to practice and become even better -- and make a little money doing what I love.
