per Finished Illustration
Hihi!
My name is Nikki, I go by Y2Hecate pretty much everywhere online, since forever (1997), and I'm a part-time professional artist. I've been drawing for as long as I can remember, but pursuing art as a career since high school, circa 2000. I have a BFA in Studio Art, concentrating on Sequential Art (Comics & Animation), and currently do freelance/commission work in my spare time. Ideally I would like to make the jump to full-time art - working on comics, illustration, games, and other projects, appearing at conventions to sell my wares, and help give instructional panels, etc. while still adulting and paying evil bills.

My personal goal is to create a monthly piece of finished art to share!
If you pledge, know it's a PER CREATION pledge. (ex. You pledge $5 per creation, if I make 4 Paid Content posts in a month, you would be charged $20. If you do not want to pledge that much support, change your pledge or set your maximum amount appropriately.)
The reason I've got this set up Per Creation instead of Per Month, is mainly because I don't want anyone getting charged money if life happens, and I don't finish a main illustration/project in a month. You should only pay for the thing, if I do the thing!
I also don't plan to make a ton of Paid Content posts. So don't worry about racking up charges. My plan is for only ONE finished Patreon Illustration per month max. All other art will still be posted, but not as Paid Content. If this changes, Patrons will be notified before-hand, so they can make pledge adjustments if needed.

The purpose of this Patreon isn't to put all my art behind a money wall. It's to somewhat fund more time for art/take fewer hours at my day job.
I also want to use this Patreon to more closely collaborate with my audience; creating things that we all enjoy and can learn from. I want to use my art to help any other aspiring artists out there, as I have been helped, with advice and inspiration.
I'm new to the Patreon thing, so expect some changes to tiers and goals as I go - I'm starting small and will change/add goals and rewards as I get used to the process and schedule, or as you guys help me decide what to work on.

Don't worry if you can't/don't want to pledge. I don't intend to post any less free art in my usual galleries and websites than before. Patrons get additional perks, like seeing stuff sooner, getting to help pick themes, and getting some extras like more progress shots, high res files, random sketches, etc. :)

Here are some examples of extras I want to eventually offer Patrons:
  • Access to my Patreon feed, where you will see:
    • Finished pieces early, before anywhere else online.
    • Progress sketches/random doodles that I don't usually share.
  • Early notice of live art casts & Q&A chats.
  • Tutorials and progress videos.
  • Special variants (NSFW and other) of finished pictures.
  • High-Res printable files of finished pictures.
  • Signed, numbered, limited edition, poster prints.
  • Swag items & Commission raffles (Raffles are a thing I will do on my own and ask you to sign up for off-site, as Patreon doesn't allow forms of gambling.)
  • & More as we come up with fun stuff!
So, if you'd like to support an artist, get exclusive updates, be the first to see new projects, have input in what you see from me next, and get various goodies in thanks for your support, then please consider making a pledge. If you can't pledge (I totally understand), I hope you will still take a moment to share this page on your prefered Social Media.

Note: Some of my work/rewards may contain adult content (nudity and such). You need to be 18+ to pledge on some tiers. Even then, I will warn when content is going to be NSFW (Not Safe For Work), so you can choose to avoid it if you want.

Rewards
~ General Admission ~
$1 or more per Finished Illustration 1 patron
Every bit of support is greatly appreciated! All Patrons at $1+ per Illustration will get:
  • Access to my Patreon feed. I draw a lot of things that I never end up posting for whatever reason. That stops now! I'll start posting them, just for you. Nobody else has to know. This includes behind-the-scenes concepts for comics, commissions, and other projects, from sketch to finished pieces, and all. You see it first, before I post them anyplace else.
~ Tour Group ~
$5 or more per Finished Illustration 2 patrons
  • All previous tier rewards.
  • First dibs on commission slots 24 hours or more before I announce anywhere else.
  • Vote on characters & themes for Patreon Illustrations.
~ Backstage Pass ~
$10 or more per Finished Illustration 1 patron
  • All previous tier rewards.
  • Suggest the character & theme for Patreon Illustrations.
  • Suggest other future projects.
  • Access to all the high-res printable files of Patreon Illustrations.
~ VIP Swag ~
$25 or more per Finished Illustration 0 patrons
  • All previous tier rewards.
  • Signed & numbered mini poster print (11x17) of each Patreon Illustration.
~ Groupie ~

~ Crazypants ~
$150 or more per Finished Illustration 0 of 2 patrons
You don't actually want this tier. You might think you do, but you don't. But here's what it includes anyway.
  • All previous tier rewards
  • Your own one or two character Illustration commission with background, following each Finished Patreon Illustration that you are in this tier. No waiting for me to open spots.
  • I'll schedule cast times when you are available, during which I will only work on your piece. If we have no free times that match, I'll record video you can watch at your convenience, or do some extra sketches or something. We'll work it out.
  • Your likeness, favorite character, or your original character can be a background/side character in at least one future Illustration, comic, warmup sketches, or other project. Basically when I need a random character to draw, your's will be high on the list, as appropriate.
Goals
$19 of $100 per Finished Illustration
I'll devote more time to art, so there's more in the activity feed for all to see, and start up my art casts again, on a regular weekly schedule (will try to base it on when Patrons can watch, as much as possible), instead of just rare and random.
  • ALL active Patrons will be able to suggest and vote on a special extra Illustration (and receive the printable file) when this goal is met.
