HI, I'M RAH!

I'm an artist, sculptor, cosplayer, prop-maker, and nerd from Seattle, Washington, USA! I have been doing sculpture and cosplay for about fifteen years and have won several awards for my work. Some of my costumes have become well-known internationally! I've learned a lot about making art across a wide variety of disciplines and forged many of my own paths, and I'm excited to share the fruits of my labor with you!

BEHIND THE SCENES

I usually share my art with the general public only once it's finished. However, Patreon is where you can look over my shoulder and see what I'm working on! As my Patron, you'll get to see pictures of my current Works In Progress (WIPs) as fast as I can make them, view sneak peeks on future projects, and even get a first-hand look at my process with walkthroughs and tutorials so you can make this stuff, yourself! Yeah, YOU! I'll include downloadable templates and patterns for every project that uses one, if you want to follow along at home. Plus, anything I make available for sale will be posted here first, which means you'll have first dibs on the best I have to offer.

WHAT I POST

Most of the stuff I'm posting here is physical, three-dimensional art like  cosplay, sculpture, and crafts. I also create two-dimensional work such as illustration, painting, and photography, so WIPs and tutorials related to these pursuits may show up from time to time, as well.

Video games are super important to me. My work is often related to games that have inspired me, such as Zelda, Skyrim, Dungeons and Dragons, Shadow of the Colossus, and Final Fantasy. In addition to video games, I'm really into natural history and fantasy. In particular I like birds, fish, dinosaurs, crustaceans, and dragons. My work often includes these topics.

YOUR PATRONAGE

Patreon support makes a HUGE difference to my ability to make things. Your contribution goes primarily towards offsetting the cost of art supplies. More Patreon support means more art, more WIPs, more tutorials, and more rewards for YOU! When you subscribe, not only do you get access to all of this exclusive content, but you will also receive good karma and my overwhelming gratitude for helping me do the things I love! 







Thanks so much for stopping by!

If you grab this crab, you'll be able to look over my shoulder and see what I'm working on, as fast as I can possibly show you.  Also, whenever I offer anything for sale, you guys will hear about it first. Very useful if you're interested in any of my one-of-a-kind art pieces.

ALSO, any time I create a pattern, template, or blueprint for one of my projects, I'll upload it here so you can download it, print it, and use it for projects of your own. 

ADDITIONALLY, you will also get detailed explanations of how I make this stuff. Walkthroughs show you what I did. Tutorials show you how to do it, yourself. Subscribers to this tier are also invited to request tutorials. Do you want to know how I did a thing in the past? I will explain it to you with photos and diagrams to the best of my ability. 


Wow! Such value!! ✨

Goals
$218 of $2,000 per month
A lofty goal! If I can earn this much I can start working on my dream costume: a gigantic, animatronic, wearable puppet. It will require hiring an engineer, and possibly some assistants so my arms don't fall off from the sheer volume of work this thing is going to take. I've never been so excited about a project in my life.
