Hi :D I am Shilin and I am an artist. I make a living from creating my own story--Carciphona--and doing lots of art based on this story. Once in a blue moon I do some work for companies like Riot or Adobe, but most of the time I try not to derail too far from my original-work focus.

Through this page,
I want to share my passion and love for creating my stories,
and show you how you can do the same. 


Art is very personal to me, and so I find it hard to speak another person's words; drawing is a means for me to express my emotions, and my stories are an outlet for my thoughts that otherwise have little place in everyday conversation. Although this means there won't be much viewer-directed content here (i.e. requests, commissions or fanart), I hope that my heart and soul can resonate with some of yours through my work nontheless!


What I offer in return for your support:
Every month I will release 1-2 sets of high resolution images, layered original files, and process videos of whatever I was working on that month to my patrons. Sometimes it's a few simple pieces, sometimes a full painting, or a full comic strip.

Art rewards:
2 simple pieces, or 1 full painting, will be included in each set. you can keep track of what's being released through the works in progress I post on the news feed!

Comic rewards:
Recently (relatively speaking haha) I have started a new full colour comic, AMONGST US. This will sometimes replace art rewards, and hopefully give you insight to my process, from start to finish, of storyboarding, sketching, drawing and painting each full short episode. All $2+ patrons will get early access to new episodes before I release it to public!

My main story is CARCIPHONA, a fantasy comic/manga I've been working on since 2005. These pages are done in the printed page format in black and white, reminiscent of manga, and layered pages of this comic are included in each mangaka tier set. 






Discord patron-only art feedback channel:
If you feel lost or stuck on a piece, and believe my opinion is what you need to push you in the right direction on a piece, all $5+ patrons will have access to my discord patron-only art critique channel! (discord.gg/shilin) (if you are having trouble joining, pm me!) 
I am interested! How does the pledge > reward claim process work?
