From now on I'll be creating two projects per month for Patreon. One will remain a patreon exclusive, with rewards, and remain private for months at a time. While the other will be open to the public.
With of that in mind, I want to introduce you all to my first public Patreon illustration: Leslie Jones.But of course since I'm staying on theme she gets an RPG/Fantasy job class. I envision her as a Knight. With humor and jokes as her blade. And the resilience of an entire army.
I often think of the type of women that are showcased in SFF illustration. And black women are constantly excluded, *especially* women like Leslie. More than anything I am inspired by her resilience and ability to laugh in the face of misogynoir. And that's why casting her RPG class as a Knight was especially fitting.
Now to just take this drawing to a finished painting!
