My Patreon is here!

I did it! I launched my Patreon! If you want monthly video tutorials and/or paintovers, please consider backing my Patreon. If this is successful, I hope to start creating more personal art. I'm really excited to see where this leads and hopefully I will be able to help a much larger audience. Thanks!
