A kindly tip, for those who feel the free Drawabox lessons and the community as a whole have played a significant role in their development. We want our lesson material to remain completely free and accessible forever, and those of you who donate in this manner help us keep it that way.


This tier includes a special role on the Discord server, along with access to the patreon-only channel.

Casual Student

$5
per month
Receives 1 credit per month on the Drawabox Community Platform (which is spent on receiving homework critiques from me and my teaching assistants). At this tier, the student can hold up to 2 credits at any given time. Each credit will expire after being held for 2 full months.

This tier is good for a student who is just getting started and testing the waters, and expects to complete roughly one lesson per month.

BEWARE: During the first few days of the month, new pledges often take longer to process, resulting in a delay of one or two days before you get your credits, even though normally they're given out within an hour or so. Please take this into consideration. Thank you for your patience.

Also receives a special role on the discord chat server and access to the patreon-only channel.

Don't forget - my students start at lesson 1, and should wait to have a lesson marked as 'complete' before moving onto the next. Additionally, all students are subject to a minimum of 2 weeks before submitting the next lesson's homework.

About

Hi there! I'm Uncomfortable, and I run Drawabox. That includes the website (drawabox.com), the subreddit where it all began (/r/ArtFundamentals) and the YouTube channel. All of the resources are completely free. You can even submit your completed work directly on the website, or in the discord server to have other members of the community look over your work.

Using these platforms, I try to help those new to drawing, those who are primarily self-taught and those who are even vaguely interested in diving in. I do so by providing structured, exercise-based lessons that start with the very basics of how to make confident, smooth marks, explore the mechanics of drawing solid forms and ultimately build up to being able to construct complex objects by first breaking them down into their simpler components.

I stress the importance of skill developed through hard work instead of talent, and give students the resources to get started. My lessons aren't for the faint of heart - I'll admit right now, especially at the beginning there's a lot of tedious work, and you are made to walk a road paved with mistakes and failures. Failure isn't just important, it's necessary. While our successes show us how far we've come, it is through our failures that we continue to move forwards.

So if the resources are completely free, what's the Patreon for?

  • Donations to support the community. I keep refining the lessons and creating new content to help explain the material. The income from the patreon campaign helps make up for the time I invest into the project.
  • Those who prefer to have me review their work directly can do so by pledging to the various tiers.

As of February 2020, the Patreon tiers have been integrated into the website itself - every time you're charged, you'll have credits added on the website. Even if you don't have an account there, it's all tied to your Patreon identity - so once you're ready to receive critiques, all you have to do is make an account on Drawabox.com and connect it to your Patreon account, or just make things super simple by logging in with your Patreon account in the first place.
