July 2020 donation progress: $0.00/$250 (0%). Click to learn more...
Hello! Thank you for using yiff.party!

We hope you enjoy using it. yiff.party operates on a non-profit basis, and as such, all the server expenses are paid by our users. We don't want to run ads or infect you with crypto miners. We depend on users like you to keep the site running, and to preserve years and terabytes of amazing content—some of which is no longer available from its original creators!

Because of the nature of the site, many users are reluctant to donate. That's OK! yiff.party was created so everyone can enjoy the content we host without any restrictions or paywalls. But if you value the service we provide, and are able to, we—and our users—would be tremendously grateful if you considered making a donation.

Donation progress for July 2020

So far, approximately $0.00 has been raised out of our target of $250.00. We're about 0% of the way there! Please note: this tracker is updated manually—don't worry if your donation doesn't show up immediately!

yiff.party's server costs are due on the last day of each month. So, we need to meet this goal before 31 July!

How to donate?

At this time, yiff.party can only accept donations in numerous cryptocurrencies. Please select a currency below to display the relevant donation address.

Bitcoin (BTC)
Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
Ethereum (ETH)
Ethereum Classic (ETC)
Litecoin (LTC)
Why can't I donate through other means (eg. PayPal)?

Due to the nature of sites like yiff.party, it is very difficult to find payment processors who will accept clients like us. If we were to accept donations via PayPal, it wouldn't take more than a day for someone to submit an abuse report and get our account frozen. Until a viable way of accepting monetary donations becomes available, cryptocurrency will remain the only option.

There are many resources available on how to purchase crypto. For Bitcoin, check out bitcoin.org's page on buying Bitcoin for a list of methods. For beginner Bitcoin users, yiff.party recommends using an escrow service such as LocalBitcoins.

Listed in order of photos: Deep Sea, Seraph, Poison, Warlord, Celestial, Lightning, Egyptian, Cybog, Time, Steam, Blood, Spring (Patreon Scale).

I posted an update to the Kickstarter that the pins had finally arrived - but I made that update before taking decent photos. So, I do hope my backers find this.

All Scales here are at least 2" in size and each one is hard enamel + one glitter color. All Scales shown here are available to Patrons.

Collectors: If you were in my Collector's Tier prior to April 1st, 2020 there is no purchase needed for the Spring Scale (last one shown here). If you joined after April 1st you can add it to your order, but please contact me so you get charged correctly (it is discounted).

What will your Patron discount be? You will receive FREE shipping within the US. For my international peeps: contact me and let's see what we can work out!

Will they have prints? Well, that is up to you and the public orders! Prints were not funded in the KS, below you will find a form allowing you to pre-order the Scales and add the prints. If we receive enough funds, KS backers and Patrons will receive their prints for FREE.

REFORGED Master Post
REFORGED Master Postmore_vert

REFORGED Master Post 2019-12-29T17:04:01+00:00close

Hello everyone! This here is going to be the master information post for my REFORGED tier that is going live for 2020. This tier is specifically for those who wish to own my Warcraft class/race crests - the reforged versions!

What exactly am I doing to them? I originally created the art for these way back in 2016 (some in 2015) and have come a long way in my work since then, I would like to update most of the class and race crests to be a better representation of my style and skill. Not to mention I have also learned a lot about my building techniques for the crafts that will also be implemented!

The second image is a calendar that will be updated as progress is made!

How does your "purchase" work via Patreon?

Every month you will be charged the $20 for the tier, this project will last for 6 months - meaning if you stay the whole time (from January 2020 to June 2020) you will have paid the total amount of purchasing a crest from my store. Consider it a sort of payment plan without any additional fees and also supporting my work throughout the time! Please keep in mind that there are additional shipping charges for international, I recommend messaging me BEFORE joining the tier and I can get you a shipping quote which you can pay for when your piece is ready to go!

What if I join AFTER January 2020?

No worries! You can join any time during the project and you have two options: 1) stay in the tier for 6 months OR 2) when I begin shipping crests you may pay the difference via PayPal and I will prep yours with all the others. Once all the artwork is done they will be available via my store (www.artofso.com), so you can also purchase them there.

What do I do in June 2020?

To start; this tier requires shipping information - MAKE SURE this information is correct by June 1, 2020. If you need it to go somewhere else please message me as soon as possible (I will make announcements when shipping begins) - I will not be responsible if I do not hear from you!

If you join in January: I will send out a message to let you know you can cancel- or better yet- if you'd like to continue supporting my work, drop down to one of the lower tiers!

If you join AFTER January: You will receive a message letting you know how much longer you'll need to be in the tier to receive your crest OR you will have the option of paying it off via PayPal.

What if there are delays?

You will be THE FIRST to know about them and you will be able to refer to the previous question on how to handle it. Your crest will STILL be paid for and you will not get charged extra, I will stay in contact about when they will be completed.

Do we have a say in what is made first?

Absolutely! Itching to see that Deathknight crest super fast? Simply comment on one of the posts about the crests and I will move whichever one up - if no suggestions are made I will work on them in my own personal order.

Since this is a pre-order, will there be extra goodies?

I want there to be! But this is solely dependent on how many Patrons join the tier! Small items like stickers and prints will likely be free to anyone in the tier and larger items like charms will be heavily discounted.


I expect that this post will be updated A LOT during the months of the project - I will not always send notifications of the updates but you can always look back here to double-check everything.

[IMPORTANT] 2020 Changes! 2019-12-16T04:19:43+00:00close

These changes will go into effect on January 1, 2020 and will effect multiple areas of my Patreon! Please take a look and make adjustments as you see fit. :) If you have any questions about these changes, feel free to comment or message me!

New Tier - REFORGED will go live on 1/1/20 and you will be able to switch to it any time during the month. This tier is specifically for those who wish to support the update to my Warcraft crest series while also paying off your own physical crest (which will be hand built and mailed to you upon the projects completion). The crests cost $120 with LEDs and Patrons in this tier will get to decide what is completed first! Your crest will ship for free within the US and be discounted for international.

Stream Day - This is something I've been trying to do more of, but found that I either went ham and streamed too much or not at all. Womp womp! So I will be deciding a day in the week that is good for most people and will do one on that day every week! It will be just for art, no games. You can find me here: twitch.tv/strayaobscura

Discord server - Dependent on enough Patrons or if I am able to learn how to set it up how I want, but it is something I am considering and looking into over the new year! :D

Collector's Tier CHANGES - The current available Collector's tier ($25) will be reserved for international Patrons, a new tier (which should be live tonight) will be $15 and available for US Patrons. I do not plan to make changes to the rewards!

Monthly Craft - I would like to work out the timing to have at least one new craft to show you all every month! Instead of having a bunch in the queue and posting in massive batches. I will say I do have a few lined up to get the ball rolling during my convention season in the beginning of the year. The more Patrons that join in the easier this will become!

TL;DR VERSION: new tier - Warcraft crests, cheaper Collector's Tier, a stream day, at least one new craft a month! Woo!

All of these things are happening because you guys have been here to support me, so thank you so much! :D Shares are greatly appreciate so more awesome people can join us!

Coming Soon: REFORGED 2019-12-07T23:54:34+00:00close

It is almost that time! Beginning January 1, 2020 a new tier will open up for everyone! This tier is specifically for those who would like to support my Warcraft crests! This series dates all the way back to 2016 when my paper crafts really took off, it was a project that pushed me beyond my limits at the time and my work has come a long way since then so I would like to update them!

Since my Allied race crests are very new, most of them made in 2019, they will be excluded from the remake but WILL be available in the REFORGED tier! I will also be hoping to add Kul Tiran, Vulpera, Mechagnome, and any others I am missing.

There is an advantage to being quick about joining the tier! YOU will get to decide what comes first AND you will get to pay off your PHYSICAL crest sooner!

These will be the same size as all my previous crests (approx. 19" on the longest side), multi-layered and have LEDs(optional).

More information soon!

Patreon Pause 2019-09-21T03:41:05+00:00

Greetings Patrons,

First off; thank you all for your continued support!

For those who haven't seen the news; on September 11th I injured my hand while working. Bad enough I haven't been able to hold my knives or tablet pen since then. What I thought would be a few days of a break has ended up far worse and has forced me out of work since then. What I thought was a bad sprain ended up being a small fracture, but a small one on your hand isn't really small.

Given that I haven't been able to make anything new through the entirety of September just about I have decided I will be pausing my Patreon for October. What does that mean for you as a Patron? Nothing changes! You will still be my Patron but you will not be charged for the paused month, any content I already have planned will still be posted, for free!

I had a lot of plans for the spoopy month, my favorite time of the year! If I can by the end I will definitely try to have -something-. ^^

Multiple versions of crafts? 2019-08-11T15:12:31+00:00close

Finding a title to describe this was hard, lol. So a lot of the time when I release a new design... for example the full body Void Dragon, I almost always will get asked if I have a bust version of it (either for the wall or table). Generally I am perfectly happy taking on the commission to edit the piece to fit where the buyer wants to put it.

But I had a thought this morning, of how many people are turned off at the word "commission", thinking its some long drawn out hoo-hah they don't wanna deal with. So I'm thinking for some of my newer pieces, like this guy above, I will make multiple versions available upon it's release. As I still don't have it in the shop I can take some time to experiment with this idea and build the multiple versions.

I would love some feedback on what you all think of the idea and if you have any suggestions, throw them my way! :D

Having been someone to ask for a wall hang version to be done, the Netherdrakes, I know you can convert them very easily and I really appreciate that! I think that's a really good idea though to include all three options, people will see the options. Which is useful, especially for those of us with cats who eat paper.

New stuff has definitely slowed a bit as I am preparing to take on my first show selling with the big dogs!!

I'll be in the Vendor Hall (3rd floor) at DragonCon in Atlanta!

I'm super nervous but also super excited! I've never done the vendor area at a con and definitely not one this big! I've been in the DC art show for a few years but it's always felt like a regular con. The number of people I will see in the Hall is going to be insane!!

If you're coming to show I'll have special discounts and or a free gift for Patrons!

Home from GuardianCon! 2019-07-08T03:41:40+00:00

This weekend was a con for my history books on how amazing it went. I met so many amazing people and had so many wonderful things happen!

Welcome new Patrons! If you're joining me after GC, I'm super excited to get the ball rolling on continuing the Destiny Dragons series!

I'm prepping something for all of my $5+ Patrons to hopefully be out this month. The coloring pages I had prepared to sell at the con will be available to you. So jump in on that tier if you'd like one! I send them out via personal message, so only those in the tier will get it!

For my WoW peeps I would like to get some progress on the Kul'Tiran crest I've had delayed for far too long, and also build the Void Dragon recently finished.

But, there is also a ton of orders and commissions still to do, I could also use a couple days of rest. x) So, just a heads up for what is on my to-do list!

General Updates 2018-12-15T16:48:23+00:00close

Sorry for all the radio silence the last couple weeks friends! Things have been -very- busy with the convention, studio "remodel", and the holidays coming up. But I am prepping things to have a fresh start to 2019!

First up here is some photos of my studio in progress - I plan to have a place for people to hang out a bit and have room to work efficiently! It started with me realizing the shelves I had bought were poorly made so I bought brackets to support them better and it snowballed into replacing some furniture and moving things around, getting rid of a lot of junk! I'm also hoping to have my main light finally replaced today! Yay!

You know those pvc shelves a lot of people use in their garages? I use to have 2 lined up there and switched it out for this nice dresser I found on Craigslist for CHEAP. I love this thing! It fits the modern style I like and holds all the important supplies + looks much better! It has since been moved from this photo to behind me and my couch put there (better for when peeps come over and puts my supplies closer to my work table).

I will post finished photos once it is all done!

I'm aiming to have all of this done BEFORE the end of the year BECAUSE.... wait for it... I plan on actually having a stream schedule! Woo!

You'll find me over on Twitch (twitch.tv/strayaobscura) Tuesdays and Thursdays starting @ 6PM until 10PM EST! I will begin streaming in January! I am VERY excited to finally be able to stream consistently, I hope it will go well. :>

Look for this banner on Twitter when I go live!

Lastly; I do have some sketches and WIPs - trying to load up on planned projects so the year can go as smoothly as possible and avoid as much down time as possible. <3 Thanks for sticking around!

Another 2019 WIP for you guys! It's been a while since I did a multi-headed project, and I grew up with Yu-Gi-Oh! so time to pay tribute! Their dragon designs are always amazing looking. This will be a large wall-hanging piece, limited numbers made.

I've got some craft photos incoming for you guys this week, they've been scheduled I just wanted to pace out the posts for the week since I'll be out of town till next Monday. BLIZZCON TIME BABY!

I PROMISE these are the last two colors of the gryphons! xD But I am going to be honest; I've had a blast translating these birds to this.

In my excitement to get the third gryphon done tonight for you guys... I saved over the original Sun Conure version. I'm so mad at myself right now that I've decided to just call it tonight and I'll rework it tomorrow. Ugh.

But nonetheless, I hope you enjoy this one... feel free to suggest other colorations! :>

Here is the Cockatiel coloration for the Rising Gryphon! This will be in a series of which I am still working on and considering for other domesticated birds... Hyacinth Macaw maybe? :>

Woo! Something colorful!! I came across a really adorable photo of these kinds of birds on FB one day and just thought how COOL it would be to make a gryphon version! I'm sure it's been done a thousand times, but here is my version! ;D

What other kinds of birds should I do? I thought a cockatiel one, some parrots would be cool... but I think I will stick to -mostly- domesticated birds. :>

On the note of "Bloom Guardian": I've been collecting lots of photos as I work on building it, and streaming when I can, would you guys rather me dump all of those in one post or upload two or three at the end of the day?

Heyoooooo! Sat down to finish the line work on this golden shine today! :> I'll try and have the Horde one done soonish as well, looking forward to re-releasing these soon!

I just felt the need re-work these as I drew them during a very -bad- time in my art career and they don't reflect my best work.

I decided I need MORE RAINBOW THINGS in my gallery! x) This is a re-color version of my "Painted Pegasus" that is currently available, and will be an option on it's product page soon!

This one would probably look great in a holo'd version so I might experiment with that when building.

Sorry for not having anything for you all last week I took an impromptu vacation, I needed a few days to disconnect.

But I return with something wonderful! Nebula Frill is by far one of my most popular pieces at conventions, but it is sad to say it was out dated and no longer represented my work... but I couldn't just get rid of it! So I re-created it for a special re-release! This new version will become available soon and you'll be able to grab one here: www.artofso.com/table-top-crafts - it may be a few before you actually see it listed.

Detail shot of the frill!

In other news... yesterday I streamed the beginning of "Bloom Guardian" - in order not to spam you all with posts I'll be gathering all of the in progress photos and making one post once the piece is done. :>

Man has she come along way from me posting the flats last time. x) I pretty much spent all day working on her and honestly still feel she has a ways to go. Mainly adding some details where I feel they're missing and working with the design and shading so both sides are equally pleasing to look at.

But I am totally excited to build this girl! :> I still have her open as a commission, if you would like to give her a home right away! You can message or email me for details.

It is done! The series is complete! :D These two are slightly different than the other colorations but they will not cost any more than the others. I have a couple of them already being built and will post photos as I get those done!

I will have preorders up shortly here: www.artofso.com/wall-hang-crafts

This is a fairly large series, there are more colors than I originally thought so I've been a little slow. xD But this, along with the Time-Lost and Plagued from the previous post, should complete all the basic drakes! I still have Ironbound and Rusted to do, but they look slightly different than these and I'll get to them next. :>

Dragon Scale Pins [pin concepts] 2018-06-13T21:25:03+00:00close

You're probably wondering if I am EVER going to get this project running and I promise you I will! I can just often be slow on things because I get caught up on something with it or find myself unsure if it will be worth while. xD

But here are the final concepts for the dragon scale pins! This will be an upcoming Kickstarter project hopefully later this year, but it may be at the beginning of next year. I could go ahead and drop the pins by themselves but I would much rather create artwork and other extra merch to go with them.

I would greatly appreciate feedback on this project, so this post will be made public! I'm looking at things like what kind of merch, which would be your favorite design, have an idea for a different design? Whatever you got, hit me with it!

Suggestions: "Elder" versions of the scales as a late stretch goal. Special/limited versions.

They look really neat and beautiful, and probably even more so when made. My only real comment is I feel like the water and wind seem really similar, different shades and shapes but they seem oddly similar. Me I'm always partial to something gold, heh, or scales based off the chromatic, metallic, and gemstones and such though this fits a nice elemental theme.

I AM SO INCREDIBLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS MOVIE GUYS! I've always loved the HTTYD movies and this will be no exception!

It should be noted that they will be SEPARATE crafts at this point, I may re-work a combined version but not sure.

I have no plans to currently finish these until I can see more of the Lightfury, the trailer has made it hard to work out certain details. But will update them as soon as possible. :)

Tier and schedule update! [PLEASE READ!] 2018-06-01T18:52:41+00:00

Hello everyone! It has been a minute since I have sat down and discussed with you all my plans on the future of Patreon. You're all super awesome for supporting me as long as you have but I want to offer more to make my Patreon a place where more people are interested in coming to!

First thing first is the tier update!
« Nothing as changed drastically but I am now offering the semi-monthly line work posts to $5+ tiers instead of $10. If you wish to adjust your tier based on this, I will not judge, in fact I welcome it!

« Tiers above the $25 one have been removed for now. I have a lot of work outside of Patreon, and without any takers, I have devoted my time to the other work and can no longer fit those commissions into my queue.

« I am going to start working on scheduling a lot of posts, especially the discounts and the line works, to be sure those are not lost in my "to-do" list every month!

As for my work in general I am taking some time off from commissions in order to get some personal projects in the works and regain my stock for fall/winter conventions. I will still be accepting commissions on a case-by-case basis, just contact me. :) I will also open commission slots for pieces I currently have in progress.

If you have any questions or concerns about these changes (or even suggestions for others!) comment below or send me a message.

Thanks again for all your support!

I really want to start giving you guys more progress updates on pieces so I am working on reminding myself to do that! I hope this gives you a decent idea how she will be, I still have many, many hours of work left to do on the illustration before it's even ready to print. It may be next month before this piece is actually finished. :>

I tried to refine this sketch a little more so it made sense for you all to look at, ha ha, my sketches can get super messy when it's all layered for crafting! You're seeing both sides here, she will be posed a little different on each. My biggest problem with the last one I made was just that; when standing she seemed very static and boring so I hope to have fixed it! This will be a legendary craft that is open to being claimed as a commission for quick completion. I do also plan to have a standard version of this.

Stats for the legendary: 32" tall, proportionate length, free-standing, LEDs in chest, horns, and eyes, more layering than standard crafts have. This project, as is, is available for $600 and you own it when it's complete. It will be available for purchase for $800 afterwards. If you're interested please send me an email: strayaobscura@gmail.com
