ABOUTMy name is Rene Arreola and The Realm Ethereal is the universe that houses all my independent fantasy art creations. In it I am creating fantasy art paintings and stories. They say every painting tells a story and The Realm Ethereal is no exception. Each painting features an original character, set in a narrative that glimpses into this world I am building. The characters, environments and concepts all tie in to The Realm Ethereal.
WHAT I AM CREATINGThe Realm Ethereal is an ongoing project that explores the creation of new, fantastic characters set among fantastic worlds and realms. A union of imaginative realistic art and storytelling are the hallmarks of this project. The characters and worlds in The Realm Ethereal exist as the storytelling vehicle for me to share the art and stories that emerge from this union.
In The Realm Ethereal, I am creating and offering between 1-2 new fantasy art paintings on a monthly basis. In addition to fantasy art paintings, I’ll be illustrating vignettes with stories for selected paintings that further expand upon those paintings. These stories will lend additional glimpses and narrative to the The Realm Ethereal.
BECOMING A PATRONSupport from patrons here on Patreon is shown by joining various reward tiers. The always popular “Pay What You Want” tier is the least expensive way to get involved in this project. If you love this work and want to see more of it, then it’s totally up to you how much you want to give to back this project. For as little as $1.00 a month, you will be rewarded with immediate access to full resolution digital art files, all Patreon exclusive posts and related content along with a 10% discount good at my online Store.
For supporters who prefer to give a little more and want a physical reward, I am offering two additional reward tiers: “Open Edition Print Collector” and “Limited Edition Print Collector”. Both tiers include all the rewards in the “Pay What You Want Tier” but offer the additional reward of art prints of the regularly released paintings.
