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 October 2020

So far, approximately $400.00 has been raised out of our target of $400.00. We're about 100% 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 October!

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.

This is an extremely well thought out and helpful tutorial. I totally see what you mean about drawing bodies with the lines and boxes versus different muscle groups (tried it out tonight as opposed to my usual lines and boxes and you were right about the fluidity of the piece.) I have no complaints as to how it was written or laid out, as it was easy to understand with plenty of examples to go along with it. Thanks Meghan and keep em coming!

That was incredibly helpful. My only suggestion is if you could add a few video demonstrations every week. Nothing flashy; I just want to see the artist actually put in practice the concepts. It's incredibly helpful. And super fascinating. Not quite unlike watching a magic show.

Tutorial Teaser Time! 2017-10-03T03:15:37+00:00close

Tutorial Tuesdays will be a go starting tomorrow!

First up will be a week by week breakdown of how to build up this image. I'm going to start with how to make your characters feel like they have mass to them, which is all about line of action and some neat little anatomy tricks that are actually really SUPER fucking basic but people always want to skip by them and *anyway*.

I'm going to assume that the folks who signed up for these tutorials have a rudimentary understanding of anatomy, and we'll go from there :) These won't be medical anatomy lessons, either, they'll be artistic, and there is a great big difference between the two (prime example: daVinci vs Frazetta).

From there we'll head into things like expression, anatomical pitfalls, hair flow, that sort of stuff, but we gotta get the hard things out of the way first :)

Allrighty, time to round this stuff up a bit, and get it all ready for you folks.

Thank you again for all your support!

I went with a different interpretation of this one, because my original ideas just weren't gelling with me. I think in light of everything going on today, i needed something a bit more uplifting.

Anyway, he's available! Just claim dibs and first one who does so, gets him :)

Workarounds! 2017-10-02T16:00:04+00:00

I'm working on the tutorial for tomorrow, and Patreon's limitations for image posting is making it REALLY difficult, SO i had the bright idea to launch a Patron exclusive tumblr, to which i'll give access every month via a new password.

The page is:
caffeineandexpletives.tumblr.com

This month's password is:
@!?P??zbT}?Eh>3S

Yes, really. Just copy and paste it :P

It's empty at the moment while i figure everything out, but i think this solution will work the best. I'll still update here, but for posts that have multiple images, i'll have to just crosslink things. I'll also have to figure out a different method for tiers and crap, but for today, this is just going to be how it is, LOL. Learning is FUN.

SO YEAH. There we go. Progress and stuff!

First goal met! 2017-10-01T22:14:33+00:00

My first goal was hit, all thanks to you guys! As promised, i'll do a lineart piece for you folks, for some coloring fun.

I might even draw a name from the list and send them the original art. And by might, i mean will ;)

Just gotta figure out WHAT to draw now!

Inktober 2017! 2017-10-01T17:46:50+00:00close

Inktober 2017 is here! And guess what? It's going to be Patreon exclusive. That's right, all you folks will get exclusive access to the pieces I'm doing for the event, and you'll also get first dibs on all of the original art (which will all be 6"x6", inked stuff, $75 shipped).

You'll see a theme going pretty quickly, which will be far more risqué than my art i post up for the general public, and much more in the lines of erotica rather than straight up porn (nothing wrong with the latter, i just prefer the former. Tease instead of show, that idea :D )

First one is up, for the "Swift" prompt - i used a quote from Jonathan Swift for it, mainly because i know there's going to be a fuck ton of Taylor Swift, birds, and foxes instead, and i like being contrary, hahah.

If you'd like her, leave a note! Next one will be up tomorrow!

And if you'd like in on the project and artwork, $1 a month gets you the access you're looking for :)

Updates! 2017-09-29T22:29:57+00:00

Hey everyone! I just finished up a monster, bucket list project that i can't talk about because NDAs and all that fun stuff, so that means that i'm finally freed up to actually get this whole Patreon thing rolling!

Tuesday will be the first of the tutorial series. I'm going to start off with basic figure sketching and how to make it move. This will be the tutorial that deals with weight, mass, that sort of thing - basically how to make the figure feel like it has substance. From there, likely the following week, i'll break off and start focusing in on female specific traits and anatomy, but we all need the basic course, and there's been a *LOT* of interest in just my sketching practices, so i thought it'd be smart to start there.

In other news, i'm writing down the names of the folks who did the portfolio review reward tier, and i'll be pulling a name tomorrow and putting that person on the spot. I'll record it, so you guys know i'm not fibbing or playing favorites, and hoooopefully i can figure out how to post the damn thing, lol. Your review will happen in October, and i'll work with the winner to sort out a date that'd work best :)

Okies, that's it for now! I'll post new art tomorrow!

So excited for the tutorials.
Tutorial Tuesdays - Coming Soon! 2017-09-14T23:10:15+00:00

SO. It's now Thursday, which means that Tutorial Tuesday has come and gone, with no tutorial posted, but with hopefully good reason: I've decided to start off with the "big" one.

The most requested thing i get, even more than Copic coloring, is female anatomy. I mean, i wrote the most shared/viewed boob tutorial there is, so it's probably only smart that i start off with women, right? Right.

I'm going to cover everything i can think of, from full figure anatomy, to problem areas, faces, expressions, all of it. Later, i'll do a dynamic anatomy too, aka, action poses, and i'll also do a "how to draw sexy women without demeaning or masculinizing them" (though, srsly, i should make that one free).

Because of the scope, i'll likely break it down into a week by week setup. Full figure for week one, faces for week two, expressions for week three, you get the idea. Also, because of the scale, and because i want this shit to look good, i'm planning it to start in october. That gives me time to get my current projects finished, so i can put some solid effort into this because it really is something important to me, that i think a LOT of folks can benefit from. I'm not the be all and end all, but i AM in fact an artist, who happens to be female, and who's known for drawing beautiful women, so i might have a few things worth listening to for some folks, LOL.

Okies, that's the general update for right now -- i'll post some more art tomorrow :D

Unseen art stuff! 2017-09-07T14:22:50+00:00close

Hey folks! Things are settling down at the new house, and i'm starting to get back into a bit of a groove with art stuff, which means new content will be posted soon :) First up will be some Tutorial Tuesday stuff, but i need some ideas as to what to start with (if i don't get any, i'll just start at the very basic bottom and work up from there). Tutorials will likely be image based, as opposed to videos, because i find that storing images for ref is a lot easier than storing videos, hahah.

Until then though, here's a bit of art I haven't shown anywhere yet -- Little card art pieces done for Hi-Rez Studio's "Paladins" game. All digital, all done on my Surface Pro 4.

I have a few more up my sleeve too, so i'll share those in a few days ;)

Thank you! And if you have any ideas, please let me know!

Yay ! I love your new workspace/room. So jealous of this huge monster called a drawing table =D As for the tutorials, personal I am fine with everything. It might depend on which level your other followers on patreon are with their art/copic skills. I'd say maybe a bit here and there.. just to figure out where the whole thing will lead in the future =)
Updates! 2017-09-01T22:21:36+00:00

Hey guys!

Well, it took a few extra days, but I successfully closed on my first house, and I'm currently getting the new (albeit temporary) studio set up. What that means for you guys is that actual content filled posts will be coming soon! I recorded a couple Patreon only streams, and just need to compile them together (hence me asking if you guys would like "raw" or "pretty" videos a few days ago).

Also, first portfolio review will be end of september! I'll randomly pick a name from the folks who've chosen that tier and let you know -- from that point, you'll have a few days to get everything prepped, and we'll take it from there :)

Okies, i think that's it for now? I think. I'll be in touch soon, regardless!

Thanks for your support everyone!

Important Question! 2017-08-20T22:47:38+00:00

About important things, ya know?

What's a bigger deal for you guys:

1 - "Raw" videos. More common, and you get ALL the bits of being a work from home freelancer, including dogs barking, shit getting knocked off walls and other mishaps, Amazon deliveries, all of it.

2 - "Polished" tutorial videos. Less frequently, but higher production videos.

Info would be the same in both, just one is the "This is Real Life" take, and the other is the Kardashian take.

LMK!

Covenant Sneak Peek #1 2017-08-17T16:56:43+00:00close

I'm still trying to figure this thing out, SO, while i'm doing that, here's a quick little peek at the mockup for the cover to volume 1! It covers aaaaaall the little details of the story: Neon lit future, supernatural critters, portents of doom. All the good stuff :D

I should probably explain what Covenant is: It's my long languishing creator owned sci-fi/fantasy/horror project that's had more iterations than i can really remember at this point. Seriously, I've had this thing on one burner or another since i was .... 16? So damn near half my life now.

It's the story of what life could be without Death, as in capital D, and what might happen should Death come back to a society that has lost the concept of what it actually is.

Throw in some vampires, witches, werewolves, place it on Earth, Mars, and the Moon (to start), shake it all up, and bam: Covenant. I might also eventually add in some dragons and unicorns, just for shits and giggles too. WHO KNOWS.

It's also planned to be comics in longform -- i hate the constraints of monthlies, so i'm ditching those. Instead, i'll be releasing "chapters," sometimes they'll be three pages, sometimes they'll be thirteen. Whatever best suits the story. Eventually, i'd like to do a hardcover run of the first volume, especially since my plan is to paint this sucker, and the artbook treatment would be the best way for it.

So, yeah, that's Covenant 101. For the next bit, i'll be adding sketches and concept art of it, until i'm in the place to start working on pages. Who knows, maybe i'll even post the script, unless folks think that being surprised would be better :)

Okay, now to figure out how to add more than one image, LOL.
