Hi! I'm Feli, an illustrator and fanartist big on videogames andentertainment media who has always found her calling in the form of drawing characters who strike a chord with not only myself, but millions of others. I've been working as a commission artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina, but my dream has always been to move to the States to do what I love doing from a place where I can actually get ahold of the money I earn, due to Paypal restrictions in my country. This means all the payment earned from my work remains inaccessible to me unless I switch locations.
My goal is to be able to draw the tons of really amazing stuff you all ask me to draw, be it from your favorite videogames or shows, including drawing tutorials and processes, while being able to sustain myself and save enough to comfortably make the move in the beginning of 2016, and eventually find stable work abroad. Argentina is unfortunately not the greatest place to be for an illustrator, so the change would really set things in motion for a brighter future!
Your support, be it by pledging and spreading the word, will help me make a living while simultaneously providing you all with continuous artwork from your favorite pieces of media for your personal enjoyment! The way Patreon works, you can tip an artist (me! hello) any amount of money you want (yes, even $1) per month to support their work while at the same time helping them provide you with all those things you’d like to see from them, be it art from existing franchises, commission raffles, livestreams, step-by-step tutorials, day-to-day works in progress, etc. There are of course certain things that would be exclusively only given to tippers, such as monthly commissions, private critiques if desired, access to closed livestreams, (there’s a plethora of possible rewards here), but the extra money would actually help me detach a little bit from all the commission work and the pieces and tutorials would obviously still be released, eventually, on tumblr, dA and what not to ultimately everyone.
So I’m trying to save up to comfortably move to LA at the end of the year because my country is unfortunately a dead-end for what I want to do and I can’t get my money out of my paypal account from Argentina. I’m going to be starting up a Patreon soon but to kickstart things I’m doing a massive art giveaway first to hype things up!
