WHO AM I?

My name is Rene Arreola and I am a creator. I paint, draw and tell stories. My medium is visual storytelling.



WHAT IS THE REALM ETHEREAL?

Essentially, superheroes and super villains based in a fantasy art and science fiction multiverse. I started drawing almost as soon as I started reading superhero comic books when I was a kid. In recent years, I’ve become fascinated by ancient myths and legends from around the world. With this ongoing project, I am blending all this into a world that is The Realm Ethereal.

The main phase of this world-building project involves creating the different characters that populate The Realm Ethereal. This is an ongoing process, as the creation and unveiling of new characters is constant. For each new character introduced, I create a new painting. I'm currently offering prints of these paintings as a way to provide patrons an opportunity to support my art while receiving a reward for themselves.

The other phase of the project involves telling these characters’ stories. With the help of supporters on Patreon, I will be able to focus on working toward the ultimate goal: creating illustrated stories of The Realm Ethereal for supporters to read, collect and enjoy.

If the gist of what I’ve outlined here sounds interesting to you or this sounds like the kind of stuff you’d enjoy being a part of as it takes shape, then this just might be the place for you.


WHY PATREON?

Patreon makes it possible for potential supporters such as yourself to join independent artists like myself on this journey as I create my own personal projects. Patreon can also make these independent projects financially viable for me to pursue as it allows patrons to pledge money to me directly. You can support me at different levels by pledging to any one of several reward tiers that help to keep this project going.



IF YOU BACK ME, WHAT DO YOU GET?
You will have my gratitude! You also have early access to sketches, in progress images of paintings, final high-res JPEGs and more. There's even a monthly 10% discount code for for patrons to use in my online Shop toward all purchases. It's a dream of mine to create my own characters, breathe life into them, write & illustrate the kind of stories I want to tell. To have your support in this means the world to me.

If you like the work I'm creating here, then the Pay What You Want  tier is a means for patrons to pledge as little as $1.00 per finished painting that I complete (1 per month). You set the monthly dollar amount to whatever you'd like to give for my artistic efforts here on Patreon.

I’m also offering two pledge tiers to support my work through sales of my art prints:

  • Open Edition Print Collector – These are 12”x 18” prints of my paintings. These are exclusive prints, available only to patrons subscribed at this tier. If you sign up for this reward tier for $30.00 per painting, I will ship you that month’s new print, shipping included. You will receive the latest art print each month for as long as you are subscribed to this tier. These art prints are produced directly in my studio on premium luster photo paper with archival pigment based ink.

  • Limited Edition Print Collector – These are 17” x 22” limited edition prints of my paintings. These prints are limited to only 50 to ever be produced for each new painting. Once these prints have sold out, they will no longer be available in this size! If you sign up for this reward tier for $50.00 per painting, I will ship you that month’s new print, shipping included. You will receive the latest art print each month for as long as you are subscribed to this tier. These art prints are produced directly in my studio on premium luster photo paper with archival pigment based ink.
