Unfortunately, I am going to stop making time-lapse video and step by step photos... for this time.

Firstly, I owe you big THANK YOU for your support, my HEROs! I appreciate it so much and believe me every cent counts. You've made a big difference these few months, and in case you decide to support me anyway, you will continue to make a big difference.

My decision based on several reasons. There are two of them.

The first reason is, as you can see, the lack of interest in this content by my followers. I was hoping it would be appealing to more people. It was a great experience but, it took also a lot of my time to produce it. And here we come to the second reason.

More than half a year I have been planning to make a solo exhibition in my hometown and hopefully in other countries. I still postpone it just because of the lack of time to produce bigger paintings. Currently, this is my main goal, and I need to fully concentrate on it.

I am NOT going to close my Patreon page. Other rewards will be still available (HI-RES Scans / Discount codes / Thank you credit / Fine art prints). So if there is someone, who would like to support me anyway, you don't need to change anything. Also, I will continue to post here all my finished artworks publicly as well as so far.

Regarding payments that are going to be charged at the beginning of the April, please keep in mind that these payments are for a March content. But, I am letting you know about this change before payments start charging if you would like to delete your pledges right away. I believe it would be unprofessional to inform you after the payments.

Maybe one day I will try it again, or I will come with an idea for new content. We will see :)
If you have any suggestion feel free to write it out!


Hey there!


My name is Miroslav Zgabaj, better known as miro_z. I am a self-taught artist living in Prešov, East Slovakia. I am fascinated by the human body, especially by faces and the emotions that a person is experiencing internally. My creative production revolves around realism - a person, and abstract expression - emotions. I try to capture the elusive moments in people's lives and create the atmosphere for enhancing emotion.

Art speaks to me as liberty itself; liberty of self-expression. It represents an opportunity to reveal my inner universe, uncover the depth and authenticity of human nature and share all of that with the rest of the world.

Yet, there is a catch. Something chokes this freedom, never-ending prioritization between money and time.

And here comes time for true HEROs!


Patreon is built on a simple idea of support and financial aid from fans on a monthly basis. You can see more about what Patreon is on this video.

My gratitude to each of the 95,000+ people following my work on Instagram is beyond expression. When I started posting my artwork on Instagram I didn't even dream there would be such a huge interest or how greatly the appreciation I received would impact my journey as an artist. To each of you that has followed me, given me likes, sent me comments, or provided me with your time and energy, I owe you my gratitude.

But the naked truth is that "likes" and "comments" won't buy me food or new equipment so in order to dedicate myself to art and to provide the opportunity to create more of the sketches and paintings you are a fan of, I am looking for HEROs. My HERO is someone who has the ability and willingness to support the work of mine that they have become a fan of, and give me the chance to expand.

There are four different contribution tiers according to your ability and willingness ranging from Hero to Immortal Hero. I appreciate all of my HEROs and every dollar counts.

Join Me
on my Creative Journey and Become my HERO!

With this monthly charging method, once you pledge to me, you instantly get access to content of tier you choosed. You are charged for the month’s pledge on the 1st of the following month.

Goals
$40 of $100 per month
OPPORTUNITY   

If I reach this goal, I can quit my first part-time job. It will give me an opportunity to expand my creative production. I'll be able to invest in equipment and I will definitely start filming videos and time-lapses of my artworks.

In other words, I can focus more on creating art and videos and still have some food to eat. This is a great opportunity!
