It is a way to get your favorite role playing game character drawn by a professional artist. The idea is for a hand-picked cadre of artists with a variety of styles to be available to draw your character. Currently, that cadre is me, Denis Loubet.
All these characters were described by fans who wanted their character drawn or painted. Some gave me broad guidlines, others dropped their character sheet on me, and some wanted the character to look like them! (Likenesses were a feature I never intended, but it turned out I could do it pretty well!) Let your friends know!
So I can make my work for Drawmycharacter economically feasable for me without raising prices! The more patrons I get, the more time I can afford to spend on each character. And depending on how well it goes, the more swag I can offer to my customers and my backers, so let all your friends know about the Total Output Patreon project.
Each of these drawings took too long to do to make it economically feasable. I dispaired that I would either have to raise my prices so that only the 1% could afford them, or give up on the idea entirely. Patreon changed that gloomy forecast. I can keep my prices reasonable, and still make each one economically feasable. That's not a rhyme, it's a business model that should work!
It doesn't help that I can't keep one level of rendering from blurring into the next. Some of the works that look like paintings are actually supposed to be only finished pencils with color, but once I start shading I sometimes can't stop!
Another thing is that I never intended to do likenesses, because I didn't think I could pull it off. But it actually has proved to be fairly easy. Although it is sometimes a challenge to turn a civilized gamers face into hard-bitten warrior features.
