Hi guys, how have you been doing ? Today I feel like sharing about what have been going on since a lot has happened in the past 6 months.
I have moved to Japan, to study and work. It's been busy and fun. Even though my Japanese Clients have been making me work my ass off and chase deadline, I've never felt so much fun drawing while living here. I'm currently in Tokyo, and this city has been a huge inspiration for my art. Everyday going out, I never stop discovering new things that inspire me to come up with ideas for my work. So far it have been the scenery, beautiful craftman ship and the way people dress fashionably here that amaze me. Of course, I cannot not mention the huge Anime culture here. To me, these are priceless reference that I can observe with my own eyes in person, not by sitting on the other side of an LCD screen. Everytime art block hits, a quick trip to Shibuya, Harajuku or Akihabara will solve the problem wonder.
And lastly, it has taken a long time but I'm thinking of opening a Patreon page where I can upload some of my personal artwork and fan art . I haven't been able to come up with ideas for rewards yet but I'm thinking of making artwork that has different outfit versions for different tiers of patrons. For example let's say I do a fan art of D.va (from Overwatch), the regular patrons will receive the image, while higher tier patrons will receive the same image plus a swimsuit version of that image. Even higher tier patrons will also be able to either vote or select the outfit version that they prefer, it will be unique for them. Not only outfits, we can do the same for hairstyles as well, make it fun for you to customize the look of that character.
That's the general idea for now, what do you think of it ? Let me know, and feel free to suggest what you think could make it better.
Thanks for reading ^^.
