"How to join"
That big orange "become a patron" button all over the place or the "join this tier" link below each tier.



umm... what's your name?
Why, what's it to ya!?! "Xiaonan Sun" :)
What's your Zodiac?
Leo, enjoys long huntings on the beach.
You do personal portraits / commissions? 
http://www.ThePortraitArt.com
(contact me through there if interested)
What Tools are you using / pencil / paper etc?
www.amazon.com/shop/ThePortraitArt
(i'm not selling those, you are buying from amazon. It's just a page I organized on there for convenience)
For digital Art I use Wacom Intuos Pro. 
Are you self taught / Did you go to Art School?
Yes I'm self taught, No I didn't go to Art School, that's why it took me so long to get to just this stage.
How do you do this / that ? 
Kinda the whole point of this page since I don't have time to answer those questions properly and fully, without your support. A common one that's easy to answer though: highlight for hair I generally use hard rubber eraser. 
Where are you from?
Currently in New York, USA. 
How to pronounce your name? (Xiaonan)
Shao-nan or just call me X. That's Mr X to you, or Professor X. But seriously X is fine.
How long have you been drawing:
Around a decade.
What's your favorite medium / style:
Mostly charcoal, but fundamental skills translate easily to other media, which all have their pro/con. Style wise, if photo-realism is 100% at one end, and abstract at the other... I think something expressive at around 80%? 
Any interesting past projects?
Illustration for theater released film documentary. Some books covers. Art work in Ripley's Museum. A couple of music videos. Some other past clients includes HTC, CEOs and officials of State. A bunch of TV stations around the world. but...
Nothing beats spending my time making stuff for you guys. 

Any other questions? Just message me!
