You are a knight of the ancient ways of courage, purpose, and meaning. May your paths ever be wild, and your steed be savage and true.

This tier is intended to be a convenient and accessible option for students and anyone interested in developing their creativity, design skills, and personal art projects. 

This Tier includes:

  • Monthly 1 on 1.
  • Access to all Patreon content including Shape Gauntlet Exercises, demo videos, etc.
  • Monthly Digital Content (Project Sneak Peeks, Tool Presets, Brushes, WIP Images, Reference Packs, Educational Resources, PSDs, etc.)
  • Access to Special Gifts.
  • Your name (or social media handle) included in the credits of Shapecarver Podcast videos.

In order to get the most out of this mentorship, I recommend you plan to work together for a minimum of 3 months. During which time we will engage in:

  • Paintovers & Personal Demos
  • Portfolio Analysis & Development
  • Personal IP Project Development
  • Unique Exercises

* Special Gifts may vary month to month as I experiment with new tools, techniques, and merchandise. 

We meet once a month (via Google Meet) and work together to analyze your interests as a creative person. Then we establish a plan tailored to help you achieve your individual goals. This includes a 'Personal Intellectual Property' portfolio project. We take time once a month to catch up and discuss your art, your project, and your progress on your plan in general.

These 1 on 1 calls will run for a minimum of 1 hour. But I have found that these sort of things typically run longer than expected. So anticipate 15 to 25 minutes more each session.  The idea is for us to make some headway on your work and I am committed to providing you with the attention necessary to make that happen.

You will receive a follow up email within 24 hours of payment, including a link to a scheduling document. Calls will be scheduled on first come first served basis for U.S. PDT.

About Shapecarver

My name is Scott Flanders. I'm an artist, and I've been working in the game industry for nearly a decade. I'm 35 and I'm a father to an amazing little boy. Since my son was born, I've spent a lot of time thinking about the kind of life I'd like to lead going forward. A simpler life, filled with creativity, authenticity, and genuine connection. I believe I have a lot more to give to the world, in terms of my tangible artistic output and in terms of service to the community of creative people that surrounds me. So I'd like to build my life around 3 core pillars or themes:

1. Worldbuilding/Storytelling/Developing Projects
2. Making things with my hands (Sculpting, Painting, Kitbashing, etc.)
3. Teaching & Mentoring

When I'm engaged in these activities I can feel a part of myself come alive in ways that indicate I am on the right path. A path of meaning. After a day of teaching I know without a doubt that my day has been well spent. Working with my hands on a sculpture and gifting it to someone I care about and who has encouraged me, is one of the most satisfying ways to give that I've experienced. And developing business projects centered around creativity, worldbuilding and storytelling causes my brain to turn on in ways that appear to be inexhaustible, and which fill me with pure joy.
I'd like to take the next step in building a life founded on these pursuits. I'd like to know at the end of every day, that this has been a day well lived.

I am going to attempt to step away from the game industry (while my son is still small) and devote myself fully to what I've been referring to internally as "The Mission". I'm going to take on teaching more classes, create physical things to share and give to you, and begin creating content to share online including: a YouTube channel (Shapecarver), instructional courses (with Proko), process videos, demos, and a Podcast. I will also continue to develop my primary business projects including: a comic book pilot, Kings Beach art events, and Tar Pit Wars.

One of my favorite and greatest teachers, Simon Lee (Spiderzero) once told me, "You must set your back against a wall."

I have set my back against the wall.

I am going to attempt to be myself for a living.

I would be deeply honored, and thankful to have your support in any capacity you'd like to offer it.
