I'm Simone also known as Schmoe, and i'm a freelance illustrator based in Hamburg.
I've worked in the game industry for over 10 years as Art Director, Character Designer, 2D Animator and Key Storyboarder. With the birth of my son Remus a lot changed. I went from working full time to full time mum for a year but i always kept up my habit of drawing!  
I went back to working part time but quit in November 2018 to do freelance work and am happy I took this step! Next to the Freelance work, i really love creating stuff for you and would like to continue doing so. 
Here on Patreon my goal is to teach what I know and  share the process behind my art.
On joining you will gain immediate access to over 100 pages of tutorials on character design and many important fundamentals.

So how does this work?
If you like my work and want to help me, you can choose from several tiers, just pick what ever amount per month suits you best.
It is always possible to switch around tiers or cancel your patronage at any time!

On my Patreon beside of the tutorials, you will find behind the scenes material, work in process and time-lapses, schmoetalks (short videos on various arting topics), high resolution scans of pieces I'm working on and access to my discord channel, where we can talk and inspire each other.

I'm grateful for any support that lets me do more of what i love best. <3
