I've been back and forth about starting a Patreon... mostly I've worried that I don't have much to offer that's worth paying a fee to access, but I think I've solved that problem.

Would people be interested if I started a Patreon full of my art resources?  Things like reference photos, tutorials, pre-made backgrounds, etc?  I could offer custom tutorials for people who pledge a certain amount, or specific pose references, maybe even one-on-one help through Skype or Twitch... things like that.  Do you think you'd be more likely to contribute to that than a regular art Patreon?

Let me know, I'm interested in your feedback!

Surface Practice - Goldeon by ArtistMeli
Surface Practice - Goldeon
My old laptop kicked the bucket a while back, and since I've been traveling a lot more I needed a replacement.  Thanks to some great back-to-school sales, I was able to get a Surface Pro 4, woo!  I needed to practice on it, and one of my favorite go-to drawing exercises is going to Pokemon Fusion, hitting random, and drawing whatever comes up.  

The sketch is in pencil, and the color was done in Clip Studio Paint, and it was a learning experience all right.  CSP is new to me, so it's been an uphill battle.  More to come as I continue to practice.

My self portraits are all getting pretty old, so here's a new one.  This is what I wore to the Miku show back in May, so yes, it's a real outfit I own, complete with cape and bloomers.  XD  Also, yes, my hair is those colors, though the roots have grown in a bit.  :3

I probably know the answer to this, but asking doesn't hurt: Do you do art trades?

Unfortunately right now I'm really busy with paid work. :(  Sometimes I do sketch trades, though, so just keep an eye out on my page, I usually announce it.

Oh, I understand completely. Honestly, I thought that you would say "no".
