Hey everyone! I wanted to let you guys know that I am making a Patreon account! :la:

I will be using this website as a tool to make money off of my artwork. It works like this -- if a certain amount of money is pledged per month (can be anywhere from $1 to $50 or above) you will get cool things like first access to my artwork, sketches, and works-in-progress, and my game concepts/ideas, and with bigger pledges, gifts like a poster or a tee-shirt of one of my drawings. I'm still working on it, so it'll be a while before I get the details worked out. But just wanted to let you know, for those who are interested. I'm still hoping to one day become an actual videogame concept artist and create positive media that will change the videogame industry into more than just entertainment. But for now, this will have to do.

Making a Patreon account will mean you will see less of my art on here, unfortunately. I will still post finished works here, but if I want to make this work, and actually make a living off of my artwork, I will have to devote most of my artistic energy into this. It will help me feel motivated to work on my story concepts rather than have them sit stagnant and just draw whatever I feel like drawing at the moment. DeviantArt is a great place to get inspiration and tips and (some) good community, but it's not exactly what I'd hoped it would be. Patreon may have the potential to launch me into the concept art world.

Thanks for reading, and I will post the link very soon, for those who are interested. Peace out! :peace:

~ My Testimony ~
For the first 17 years of my life, I was a proud atheist. I was the kind of person who wanted to find my destiny and be a good person, without any sort of faith. I believed there was too much evil going on in the world for there to be a "god", and that most if not all Christians were judgmental, self-righteous hypocrites. But when I lost my dad at age 15 in a freak accident, my world came apart, and I questioned my beliefs in my desperation, briefly wondering if maybe there was a god that would help me through a world without my father. One year later, I became good friends with someone from out-of-state, who had a lot in common with me. Over the course of our friendship, I eventually learned that he believed in God, and grew curious; he wasn't crazy or fake at all, like most other Christians, I thought. One day, knowing my views and wanting to give me an inside perspective, he invited me to his church. I decided I'd go just for his sake. He demonstrated genuine concern towards my reasoning, one time even sitting out of a service to talk to me about what made his belief in God a solid thing. When I told him I was still skeptical, he asked to have a heart-to-heart chat, and so I told him what had happened to my family. It turned out, as he shared, that his story was shockingly similar to mine. With some other things happening that day which seemed no coincidence (people in Haiti praising God on the news after losing everything, him showing me a song on Youtube about God giving me a destiny without him really knowing its significance), I felt I had no reason not to believe in God anymore. He then told me he felt that God wanted him to pray for me. And I did something I never thought I'd ever do before -- I accepted.

That was the start of a journey that got me where I am today. I did two years of urban missions training and prophetic outreach in the community called Frogtown in Saint Paul, and am now working towards moving out on my own. I hope someday soon to start making money off my artwork and bringing glory to God through that, and whatever else He may have in store for me.

WE haven't spoken in a while and I must say, you art has improved. A LOT. You're actually quite good! I really enjoyed the lion-o-fied Sora steps piece. My favorite though is either your Fury piece or your "i'll be there for you" peice. Great work I must say!

Oh my, thank you! I think I've just been really lazy about doing artwork since trying to get used to my new job, but starting to get better about actually putting effort into it. Thank you so much, glad you like it! :happy:
