Grotesque Moi! #8 Project Update

Hi, everyone!I wanted to give you an update on Grotesque Moi!. Also, please check below the image for some questions I have for you. I’m working to get the final touches completed on the second illustration. I will publish it as soon as I have approval from the commissioner. I’ve set the feature image as the sneak peeks that I posted previously. I’ve found that the image is not being displayed in social media when I put the project banner as the feature image. I want that image to show before the Grotesque Moi! banner for you guys so that you can see how things are going.

Sneak peeks of the second Grotesque Moi! illustration.

The questions I have for you are related to Patreon. I’m relaunching under the Grotesque Moi! campaign. First, would you be interested in supporting me there? The plan is to only have a couple of tiers for support one for US$5.00 and another US $20.00. At the first tier would the reward of a digital download of 2 digital/pencil line drawings that you can develop however you want or a process video for one of the completed images? At the second tier, how does both the first tire options plus a digital copy of the previous months final image for you to make your own print sound?

Grotesque Me #4

I’m working on the pricing for the different media for this project. In the meantime, I thought I would give you more information on this project.

I chose the word grotesque because of the mixing of human and different creatures. These hybrids are not necessarily hideous in nature. Quite the contrary in most cases. There are mermaids, harpies, gorgons, faeries, draconians and many other.

I have pieces that I will start posting after the first of the year so that you will have examples of the type of work you can expect.

Fingers crossed for the pricing and where the project sales will be posted. I’m very excited about the potential of this work! Broadcasting news of this it is critical to bring it to life. Please help by sharing my posts throughout your social media. Every little bit helps. Thank you in advance!
