"How to join"
 That big orange "become a patron" button at top of page just below the banner.

"Besides supporting you in making more content, what else do I get?"
 A lot of perks, check the pledge tier and rewards section (on the right, or bottom if you are on mobile). The more support I get, the more time and rewards I can give to you, and everyone else, at no extra cost to anyone.



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. But you can use something cheaper as a beginner. Not much difference.
Are you self taught?
Mostly yes, that's why it took me so long to get to just this stage.
How to do you do this that (all art / technique related stuff)?
Kinda the whole point of this page since I don't have time to delve into answer those questions properly. A common one that's easy to answer: highlight for hair I generally use hard rubber eraser. 
Where are you from?
Currently in New York. 
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 style:
Mostly charcoal, but fundamental skill translate easily to other media, which all have their pro/con. 
Any interesting past projects or achievements?
Illustration for Hollywood theater released film documentary and book. Art work in Ripley's Museum. 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 tho. Why spend all my experience and time to serve a few if i can help A LOT more people!

Any other questions? Just message me!
