Hey there!
First of all, thank you a lot for visiting my Patreon page!

In case you don't know me yet, let me introduce myself:
I am Manuel, more widely known as "Mink - the Drawing Researcher". Creating drawings and videos is what I do! To be more precise, my main activity is to make Drawing Tutorial Videos on YouTube. Free How to draw videos about all sorts of topics. From the basics like line-art, color theory and shading to animals, cartoon characters and more. And let me be honest... I am not a professional who has decades of experience under his hat. I consider myself still a student. And so my tutorials are actually me sharing what I have learned by myself just recently. When I decide for a topic, I go through a lot of research, more than normally needed, find out everything I can, figure out the best way to draw and explain certain things, and practice, practice, practice, until I am comfortable enough with my skills and knowledge to make a tutorial out of it. It is quite some work, but I am improving significantly through it! 
And all the work that you can see in the videos and behind the scenes is done by me. The filming, editing, the animations, music, backgrounds, and so on. Those are all skills I developed in order to be able to offer the best quality possible.
One reason why I want to get better in drawing is because I want to make comics. Right now, I make short comics for practicing purposes, combined with what tutorial topic I am currently working on. I publish these comics on Webtoons, in case you are interested.
Of course this is not the only thing I do. I still draw some normal pictures every now and then. A good place to check these out is my deviantArt gallery.
In addition to that, I really like playing Dungeons and Dragons with my friends. In particular, I like the role as the Dungeon Master, and creating maps and tokens is very enjoyable for me. After I played these self-made campaigns with my friends, I upload these too online.


So, why am I here on Patreon?
Well, I am not the type of guy who feels comfortable talking about this kind of thing... but creating videos on YouTube for free is not a very good source of income. And a drawing tutorial channel will most likely not become super popular. 
I am certain that I want to continue this sort of work. Even though there have been some ups and downs for me, I have been really enjoying it ever since I started at the beginning of 2016! Mostly because of all the incredibly kind responses for you all. These really help me a lot for keeping on going! It is always encouraging and joyous for me to know that what I do helps people around the world to bring the creative ideas they have in their minds onto the canvas!
If you truly want to help me to keep this tutorial show on going, and if you are in a comfortable financial situation (!!!), then becoming a patron would be a way to support me. I would appreciate it immensely! And of course you would get more than just my gratitude! 
These may not be much, but there are some rewards for you that you can unlock, and I hope that you are going to like these~!


Let me explain the rewards to you:

  • Full resolution drawings:
I can send you the full-size pictures that I drew. Just tell me which you want~
If you upload them, edited or not, then I still want you to properly credit me and add the links to my pages. Also, it's not allowed to erase the name stamp, if there is one.

  • DnD stuff:
As I explained above, I draw some maps and tokens for my own, private campaigns. You would also get access to that!
("limited" means you only can get a few materials per month. Like only one map, just a few tokens,... something like that. Just ask me what you want to have and we can talk about it~)

  • Special Discord role
You get access to a special Discord role, gaining access to exclusive channels, the ability to use @everyone and @here, and other things in the future. (Discord server is still relatively new, so there will be more changes and additions)
Difference between regular and SUPER Patron role: at this point none, other than letting everybody know how awesome you are~

  • Access to my self-composed music:
You can get the music that I use in my videos. It's 100% self-made (digitally though, if you wonder. No I can't play that many instruments, and those I can play I'm definitely not that skilled with xP). You can use it for whatever purpose you want. However you still have to credit me and add links to some of my pages.
(The music I used in my very first couple of videos is not self-made, but free music provided by YouTube)

  • Special votings: (Unlocked if there are at least 10 people who can participate in the votings)
All sorts of votings, for details in the next tutorial videos for example, like what I do with my cats are what trivia you'd like me to talk about. And in the future there could be other types of videos that you could have an influence on!

  • Special thanks in my videos:
Your name will appear in the outros of my videos. The second tier, "SUPER special thanks", involves showing your name much bigger and over a longer duration.

  • "Work in Progress" and "Behind the Scenes" glimpses:
Get some previews of the upcoming projects. I can also give you extra insight of the production process.

  • Personal videochat: 
Let's talk about whatever you want! My cats will of course be part of it too. ;3   It's only for chatting. It's not a private drawing lesson.

You will get access to your rewards after your first month's payment.
The reward list may change over time. Of course you will stay properly informed.
If you want to receive one of your unlocked rewards, you just have to tell me~
