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 August 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 August!

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.

Hey Guys!
I hope this message finds you safe and well. These are some unprecedented times we're living through. It is odd being isolated like this but I've never more grateful to be an artist when we have so many opportunities at our fingertips. This is a great time to strengthen your skills and enhance your taste if you can make time.

Just a reminder that session 51: Elemental Water, comes out on the 11th of May and will be delivered via a link in your patreon messages. April 30th is the last day to sign up! If you just miss the deadline just send me a message and I'll make sure you don't miss out. This session explores situations and scenarios dealing with colors as they change under the water and on its surface. This is a tricky topic but I'll break down the parts of painting water so that you can do it quickly and efficiently! We will explore what happens when light interacts with water and how reflections change depending on 2 major factors. We will explore through demos and key references. I think a major hurdle in painting liquid is understanding what is actually occurring. All of these topics and more will enhance your visual storytelling ability! Sign up for session 51 today!

Hi Ty, I am working on the surfer girl pose and am wondering where you are getting your patterns for the water. I've tried making my own with varied results (none that I'm happy with). Also, this tutorial is fantastic
user avatar
tycarter - 30 May 20 11:31
Thanks Scott! Ahh I totally know what you mean! The water surface design took about an hour to design which is why I skipped over that portion for the tutorial. I basically pulled a bunch of references and then designed a few shapes to repeat and reuse. In this case it is super simple and low contrast so a lot of the work is not even visible. But you can go through the layers and find the design to see it in its full glory :) hehe

Hi Tyler, I wanted to ask a question regarding the demonstrations. Maybe you mentioned it in older versions before, but is there a reason you use the Fill-slider instead of the Opacity one? I haven't seen a difference between them, so I was wondering... Thanks so much btw for making the timelapses recently. I find these very helpful!
user avatar
tycarter - 21 Jan 20 01:11
Hi Maike! Ahhh This is a great question! I use the fill instead of the opacity because it overlays on top of other colors with an additive property. The opacity slider is subtractive. Basically, there is a very small difference but it will make your colors stay more vibrant and less chalky feeling. You are very welcome! Always happy to answer any specific questions! Ty

Ooooh, you're right! I tested it with the wrong layermodes, with linear dodge the difference is more visible. Thanks so much!#

Part VII of Cinematic Storytelling is up next! This is all about Dynamic Cameras (Jibs, Cranes and Booms)! We will cover some perspective principles for making appealing drawing with the simplest subjects and then move onto more complex designs. We will cover lens choices like telephoto and wide angle to determine what works best in a shot. These topics are all super helpful to master whether for film, games or animation. It's gonna be a lot of fun! This session brings together everything we've discussed in the series so far and more!

Be sure to pledge by today Oct. 31st at 11:59 PM EST to not miss the deadline for Session 45! After Patreon processes pledges, Part VII will be delivered on or before Nov 11.


Thanks again you guys,

Ty

Hey guys!

Part V of Cinematic Storytelling is up next! This session revolves around taking any color scheme and finding ways to enhance it with accents, pushed saturation, balanced hues, and masterful harmonies. A clear and concise understanding of temperature is key to color. I will demonstrate a few ways to exaggerate warms to be even warmer and cools even cooler. We will analyze film stills before color grading and after to better understand how art direction unifies color.

Be sure to pledge by August 30th at 11:59 PM EST to not miss Session 43! Part V will be delivered on or before Sept 10 after all payments are processed by Patreon.

Thanks a lot, guys!

Ty

Hi Ty !
I’ve become a tier 2 patron today and I’m excited to learn from you. 
The dropbox link for one of the goodies (the Bonus Package) doesn’t seem to work. I was wondering if that’s a link for the upcoming session 43 or is it a different thing ?
I would love to catch up by buying previous sessions. Do I have to wait for this session to be available to receive the discount code ? 
Thanks a mill !

Hi Anouck!! Thanks for joining tier 2! That link is bonus content with a bunch of goodies! I'm working on figuring out what is wrong with it. I actually just got to LA so haven't had a second to sit down till now and look at it. I will make sure you receive the link contents! As for the code, you will receive that along with Session 43 when it is sent out in a few days. That will have the gumroad code you want for 30% off everything! Thanks again for your support! Ty

I was wondering how to get the 30% code on the gumroad products so I could go ahead and watch Glam Cam; Lights, Camera...Staging; Key Grip; Backlot Color Theory, etc. I tried to find it in the Session 43 e-mail but was unsuccessful. I might be crazy though and just missed it? Anywho, I can't wait to get started!!! Let me know your thoughts. Thanks :)

Hey guys!


Part IV of Cinematic Storytelling is up next! This is all about what I'm calling Backlot Color Theory, aka color grading techniques from film that can be translated into art! We will cover color gamut masking (Thanks to patron Joe Spadaford for the great topic request! He's been patiently waiting for this to be covered) and how to incorporate masterful harmonies into your work. We will also be covering where we left off from Session 41 with further processes and demonstrations to ensure your color reads powerfully and clearly.

Be sure to pledge by July 31st at 11:59 PM EST to not miss the deadline for Session 42! After Patreon processes pledges, Part IV will be delivered on or before July 11.

Thanks a lot, guys!

Hey guys!

"Foundational Color you can count on" is all about sound color techniques found in film grading and color timing used to accentuate hue, saturation and brightness. I will cover techniques, processes and demonstrations to ensure your color reads powerfully and clearly.

Hey guys!
I'm so excited about Part II of Cinematic Storytelling! This part is all about making strong layout decisions. You can have an amazing character design diminished by poor staging. It is one of those topics that rarely gets explained in depth. I'll be going into a few of my preferred techniques for quickly designing scenes. I can't wait to show you these two masterclasses on laying out and building powerful stories.

Be sure to pledge by today May 31st at 11:59 PM EST to not miss the deadline for Session 40, Part II of Cinematic Storytelling. After Patreon processes pledges, Part II will be delivered on or before June 11.

Hi Ty! I just joined today to your Patreon, Tier 2, but I'm not sure how it works. I've been buying past sessions from Gumroad and trying to catch up, I'm planning on buying the last 4 or 5 sessions to finally catch up this month , but I wanted to know how can I get the 30% discount, and if it works while buying more than 1? And for the sessions within Patron, am I elegible for session 40? or 41? and when avaliable do you give us a link to download it? Thanks for your time, very excited to be here :D

Hi Jose!! Welcome to my patreon! That's great! You will save a lot of $$$ by being a patron. You can use the code whenever you want and for as much as you like! Since you signed up after the deadline for this last session, I DM a special link to still get the session for the patron price. After you get it, just DM me and I'll send you the 30% patron discount code. Thanks again for your support! Don't hesitate to ask if you have any more questions, Ty

Hi Ana! Welcome to my patreon! You are correct, you signed up after the deadline for Session 40 and were not charged. Don't worry though! I'll shoot you a link when rewards are being delivered (around the 11th) and you can purchase it for the patron price. As long as you are pledged by the last of the month, you will keep receiving the newest sessions. You will also receive gumroad discount at that time. Let me know if you have any more questions! Ty

Session 39 Teaser and next Theme! 2019-04-30T13:35:27+00:00close

Hey Guys!!
Thank you to everyone who voted for the next theme. We had almost 100% of patrons vote! The tally was extremely close between Cinematic Storytelling and Designing Color and Light ( within 3 votes! ). So, I decided to take both of these subjects and create an eight part series about Cinematic Lighting: Designing Color and Light. I am really excited to show you what I've been working on for the tutorials! It might possibly be my new favorite topic! The series will release in parts each month just like in the past. So, Part I will be delivered on or before May 11. Be sure to pledge by today April 30 at 11:59 PM EST to not miss the deadline for Session 39, Part I of Cinematic Storytelling.

AND...In an effort to continually provide you with the best material, I will also be experimenting with a few new rewards over the next few months. You will still receive the same quality content and this will provide you with even more variety! I'll announce them soon.

Thanks again for your amazing support! Have a great day!

Hi Ty, I’m very new to Patreon and I’m not sure I understand how to use it properly... if I paid for the tier 2 reward, it says I can get 30% off your Gumroad products - how would I be able to do this if the websites aren’t linked? Also, is it possible to access the backlog of past rewards? Thanks for your time! Sorry if these are super obvious questions.

Hi Christine! Welcome to my patreon! You can find all past sessions in my Gumroad store gumroad.com/tycarter. Since you joined after the deadline for session 39, you were not charged. But I just sent you a late sign up link so you can access that session for the patreon price. Going forward, as long as you are pledged, you will receive a session each month. Shoot me a message after you use the Session 39 gumroad link and I'm happy to send you the discount code this month. Thanks again, Ty

I have no idea if you've already covered these, but two things I've really struggled with, and both I guess fall under mental visualisation, are: - cinematic composition and rotating scenes/subjects. - drawing from the imagination

User #2529882 - 29 Mar 19 08:09
1) this might be a long shot and out-of-the-comfort-zone thing for many, but lately I'm very interested in learning about achieving different painting styles: painterly, impressionistic, realistic, children's-book-like (although the latter tends to be more of a watercolor painting style in most books I've seen, which is a great style that's kind of hard to achieve)... 2) another idea is film-like composition, doing film-like shots packed with emotions and/or action, shots that are worth a thousand words, discussing different camera angles and what they're good at depicting. 3) the power of black and white illustrations vs. color illustrations - I've seen some great B/W 2D animated movie shots that blew my mind, they were more powerful than colored shots 4) painting/rendering all sorts of materials - this could be a long series, packed with how-to lessons on the details and secrets of every material out there 5) an even better idea: 'the devil is in the details' - intricate storytelling, hidden details that amaze when discovered, just like this artist did with his AMAZINGLY detailed work: https://www.thisiscolossal.com/2016/11/rebirth-manabu-ikeda/

I know this is kind of broad, but maybe a series focused on storytelling could be cool. Since you've covered so many fundamental subjects in detail, you could show how to apply those things for specific moods and stories. maybe? Just a thought!

User #2507946 - 30 Mar 19 13:57
Something that I've always struggled with, and the thing I would likely be the most interested in seeing as a lesson, is learning the ability to properly light and shade things, particularly people. Some sort of series of lessons on how to handle things such as various different types of dramatic lighting on a character or scene would be extremely helpful. On top of that, some lessons on how to shade with unique color and lighting in a way that feels believable, which would help people like me who tend to pick very basic colors for everything just based on what I THINK the colors would look like rather than what they actually are. These topics are still among my biggest hurdles and I can never get any kind of shading to look quite right. A series on this subject would be a blessing. I think going along with this would be some sort of lesson in cel shading. Essentially, using this method to work down the value of a drawing to the core basics so that when I’m shading, I can be confident I’m covering areas that, say, would be hit with more light or covered in more shadow. This next idea may be less about fundamental values of art and more specific, but smaller topics like how certain details affect the way your characters look, such as how clothes and fabric form on the body, or designing specific features like hair or fur or reflective surfaces on a character. As someone who isn’t really good at drawing things beyond a simple, flat representation, going into detail on those specific textures and features, and translating how they work in real life to a drawing to make that drawing feel more convincing and alive, would be fantastic. Those are my main ideas at the moment. If I think of other topics I’m interested in then I’ll be sure to comment with them.

That is very generous to give away two free rewards and of course it is yours to choose how you do so, I'm wondering whether there's some way to allow us to individually choose which two? Or can there only be a general vote on which two, favouring those who are recently joining? I fully understand the desire to allow new pledgers access to two free previous tutorials because of the length of this series.

Hi Josh!! Thanks for your thoughts about the giveaway. I appreciate your ideas and that's a great question. I absolutely wish there was an easy way to give everyone the free rewards of their choice, respectively, but there is just no efficient way to do it at this time. I did explore the idea when I ran the giveaway back in November but after testing it out on some of the tier 4 artists, I decided to just do a general vote. However, I am working on some new loyalty rewards that long time patrons can access. It is in the works for our next milestone of 300 patrons. I'm sorry I can't accommodate the individual rewards but I do totally understand and appreciate your suggestion. Thanks again for your thoughts, Josh! Ty

Hello Carter! I'm very interested in TIER4 mentorship support but this patreon membership sold out :( Could you reply, please, if you are going to extend your group? I would be happy if you could add one more member - illustrator who really need a mentor to guide to success 😊

Hi! i signed up for a tier 2 during december for this months session, but somehow i dont know whether i've received a discount code for gumroad which i would really love to use. Do i have to wait for the session to be released for me to get the gumroad discount? Best Regards.

Your discount code will show up in your messages once Session 35 is released. :)

Hey Guys! Thanks for your comments and questions. Ismail is exactly right. You will receive the gumroad discount at the same time you receive the Session 35 rewards. That will be sometime tonight or tomorrow morning! If you have any other questions just let me know.

Session 34 Preview! 2018-11-29T14:30:25+00:00close

Hey Guys, Happy Thanksgiving! Here is a sample of the next masterclass bundle I’ll be sending patrons for December! "Filters: BIGGER, BETTER, & UNCUT". The last day to sign up for this package is Nov 30 @ 11:59 PM EST.

I've been getting a few questions frequently and want to address that below:

"I just signed up for your patreon and am so excited to start! Where can I download the video tutorials and content?"

The answer depends on when you signed up. If you became a patron after the deadline (the last day of the month) you are not charged for that previous session because you missed the deadline but you will receive the next month's reward. You are only charged at the beginning of the month. After your payment is processed you will receive a message from patreon messenger with your reward link. This rewards message is usually sent out by the 7th of the month. This is also when you will receive the 30% off discount code for my gumroad.

"What if I just barely missed a session?"
If you just barely missed a session please shoot me a DM via patreon and I am more than happy to give you a special link to purchase the session at the patreon discounted rate. "Barely missing" a session means you missed the cutoff by a few days. All previous sessions can be purchased in my online shop @ gumroad.com/tycarter.

Thanks again for your amazing support! Can't wait for you to see Session 34!

Ty

I'm late because patreon does not notify me of your answer. But from today I am already a member :) so if I can still receive the reward I will be happy. If I don't receive it, don't worry, it's also a pleasure to be part of your support from now :D

Hello, I just downloaded Tier 1 from session 32. My surprise is to see that there are 3 videos of only 44 sg each. is this correct? I see that in the Tier 2 is the same, but a video Masterclass Lesson / Tutorial? Maybe those were the videos that you usually sell in your gumroad? If so, I would like to know .... thanks for your help ....

tycarter - 6 Oct 18 12:53
Hi Angel! Thanks for your message. Please take a look at the Tier descriptions which have the rewards listed. The full masterclasses are given for Tier 2 and above. These same masterclass tutorial bundles (everything in Tier 1 and 2) become available on gumroad after they are released. And for example, say you decide to become a Tier 2 patron, you will receive Session 33 for $10. If you wait to buy it on gumroad, that exact same Session 33 will cost $30. Subscribing patrons receive over a 60% discount. Does that make sense and help to clear up any confusion? Ty

I’m very sorry for repeating the same questions twice... Is the discount code for your gumroad products supposed to be released privately by e-mail at the same time each new reward is released? I’d love to purchase some products now but am not quite sure how long to wait before receiving the code.

Hey guys! This next series will be on the Ins and Outs of Digital Painting! I am extremely excited to go into tips, tricks and things I wish I knew 10 years ago!

I'll send out a full curriculum just like the design series so you can see what's coming each session. Also, you'll notice that certain patron tiers will receive discounts on all past gumroad content starting on Session 31!!! And stay tuned for a HUGE giveaway for free one day tickets to CTNX! Thanks again for being awesome and helping to spread the word!

Choose new future REWARDS! What do you LIKE and WANT the most? 2018-08-03T12:50:31+00:00close

Hi guys!! First of all, I want to welcome are newest patrons and also thank you long time supporters! You are truly amazing and make each session possible. We just completed session 30!!! It has been an amazing journey so far and I'm so glad we can share it together! We have been named one of the top patreon pages on the site, highlighted by the founder himself, and made over 200 hours of content so far! Thank you for your support!

It wouldn't be possible without you. And I want to give you even more!

Over the past few months, I brainstormed potential new rewards and possible new tiers but I want to get your thoughts. What do you LIKE and WANT most from me? Is there a reward you really like? Is there a reward not currently offered that you think would be a life changer? I want to know what you think! And if there was ever a post to comment on, this would be the one. I want to get some of these rewards implemented as soon as this next session. There might be some ideas which will require testing and time, so I'd like to do that too!
Here are some of my thoughts: Discord, Gumroad Discount on past sessions, Podcast newsletter, livestream Q & A, Brush creation demo, to name a few. Please leave a comment and let me know what you LIKE and would want if you could get new reward.

And as a quick note, the poll from last month was extremely close! Thanks for your votes! Fundamentals of Digital Painting received 36% of the votes while Environments received 34%. I am going to focus the next session series on both of these, basing the theme on Digital painting but incorporating enviro design where I can. There will be more polls soon. Thanks so much!

Please leave a comment and let me know what you currently LIKE and would WANT if you could get new reward(s). If you suggest a new tier completely, please say a price you think would be reasonable.

Hi Tyler, (I've missed out on the last two sessions, so perhaps I am running behind), but I think It could be handy to add more 'small' assignments and a closed facebook group, patreons only? That way we can also critique each others work when appreciated. I had so much fun in the mentor group and I miss contact with students a lot. I've gained so much confidence in my work after the mentor sessions, cant thank you enough for that!

Hey Leontine!! Thanks for posting your thoughts. I like that idea a lot. I am working on setting up a discord server where patrons can interact together. And I think a facebook group would be awesome too! It was amazing working with you in the mentorship! I agree that bringing some of that back into the rest of the group would be great

Hey Tyler! I think you've got some great ideas on how to change up your patreon page. I personally have never had a problem paying full price for your past content a la carte, as the content is amazing and quality is super high. However, I would definitely buy more with discounts! My favorite part of your current offerings is definitely the lectures. I feel like there is always something in there that I can apply right away to my own work. In addition to that, your longer series like the recent design series was fantastic. I realize those kinds of things take much longer to produce on your end, but if you could keep some semblance of structured content like that, I'd be appreciative! I am not that familiar with discord, but I hear great things and I'm interested in trying it. Looking forward to what you come up with!

tycarter - 23 Aug 18 02:00
Thanks so much for all your thoughts here, Kamille!!! I love hearing about what you like / things that are helpful. I've also felt like these series are much more effective because I can really dwell on a topic and flesh out everything possible. There is always so much to discuss! Thanks again for your support!

As a new backer, I'd love to get Gumroad Discount on past sessions! Also more tiers in which we could get a one-on-one session with you for feedback or portfolio reviews (not necessarily an ongoing mentorship, it could be a one time thing) would be amazing : )
user avatar
User #2529882 - 3 Aug 18 13:02
Well, when I signed up to your patreon, I realized how many past lessons I had missed, and the lack of Gumroad Discounts is definitely a show stopper (considering that everyone else BIG on this site offers it) I can't afford so many past lessons when I sum the total price... and what saddens me is that I see a small but rather constant drop in patrons here, which makes the 300 patrons milestone look improbable at the moment or in the near future :(

Just an FYI, in case you weren't aware of how other artists approach this matter: • Dongjun Lu offers one past lesson for Free via dropbox for a higher Tier • Foundation Group offers 30% off all past content via gumroad • Izzy Medrano offers 25% off the archive via gumroad

Hi ! My advice would be discounts on past gumroad lessons. Another patreon that I support is Foundation Group. They offer 30% discount on every lesson a nice move to thank the patreons that support you. But The best feature is that when they launch for example a lesson or advanced lesson on a topic that has already been introduced, they offer for a few days only the ability to have 50% discount on these particular related past sessions. Very interesting because lots of time either you clearly say that we are strongly advised to watch previous lessons of that same topic or I feel I lack some theory or techniques when doing the new lesson. Cheers Ty

My top choice would definitely be discounts on past sessions on Gumroad! There are some earlier sessions like the graphic illustration ones, that I missed out on and would definitely love an opportunity at a bundled price or discount since I can't quite afford all of the past sessions separately.

tycarter - 8 Aug 18 11:45
Thanks so much, Corey. It is super helpful to hear where everyone is coming from. It sounds like the discounts would be very well received. Thanks again for your long time support!

User #3488610 - 4 Aug 18 01:27
john park gives discount for members. I email him, he gave me a bundle deal that i paid him on pay pal. I assume it was a cheaper thing for him to do it outside of gumroad, but i dont know. Its just a customer support thing that people like. His was the first gumroad I ever supported because i came across him on gumroad. I just couldnt afford all the videos that pertained to a skill set i lacked... i sure wanted too. He made it easy. Now I support him when ever he puts out a video. So its gonna pay off for you to give discounts. Parks made several hundred off of just me. Now for you, gumroad is not a big an insentive to me because I bought all your old videos. One thing you may want to do is focus on retention of supporters. say someone hits a year mark supporting you. Thats a big benchmark. So i think if you insentivize people to keep putting the money forwad year after year. A good thing to do is to allow them a one time q&a session with others like them where they can ask you for stuff not covered in your videos. Stuff they want the answer to beyond the voted on stuff. Maybe some who its 3 years gets a crit. stuff like that. your doing great man. i am proud to be your supporter.... gamut masks tricks... sorry... frog in my throat..

tycarter - 8 Aug 18 11:40
haha! Thanks a lot Joe! And thanks for being an amazing long time supporter! I really like your idea about doing loyalty benchmark rewards. I've been talking with Patreon about some in app tools to reward patrons on their year mark and other big anniversaries. And a Q & A would be great too! Thanks for all your thoughts, Joe! And I will definitely hit the gamut masks this series!

User #3866864 - 3 Aug 18 14:23
I too would love to see a Patreon discount for your previous lessons. I know i would end up buying twice as many. The only reason i haven't started picking up older lessons is because the price is slightly prohibitive for all the great content you have put out. its pretty impossible for me to afford.

The one thing that's most important to me are the tutorials. I would really like to see a Gumroad discount for Patreons. Q&A would be helpful. What if you added a $1 tier to help grow your following? I really think your Patrons will increase as school starts back up.

tycarter - 3 Aug 18 23:39

I NEED YOUR HELP!!
Thanks again for your amazing support! We are now on session 30!! So much has changed since I started this patreon page. I've been able to experiment and develop my style in ways I never thought possible. As a creator, it has been completely liberating being able to pursue personal goals and share as much as possible with you! After all, none of this would have been possible without your support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing this with your friends and your continued support! I appreciate the kind messages and am so glad you are enjoying all of the content. With that said, there are some really exciting new changes coming to my page in the next few months. I'll be announcing that later! For the moment, I need your HELP to choose the next series you want to dive into! I've been reading through your comments and suggestions and narrowed them down to 4 topics. Please vote for the next series below. The winner will be announced next week. (The new series will technically begin in Session 31.)

I voted 1, by far my favorite. 4 would be my least favorite. I consider your videos to be masterclasses, and that's why I find them so valuable. 'Getting started with Photoshop illustration' would be a step back I think.

User #6342350 - 16 Jul 18 14:50
I just wanna add that I agree with everyone in the fact that whatever you do will be great because you're awesome. However, I think fundamentals, and lighting are super popular topics that can be found in a lot of different places. I personally have not found a comprehensive course online for environments. After going through your super in depth curriculum on design, I'm curious to see how you would handle that. Redesigning old art is interesting but I'm not sure how applicable that could be for everyone. maybe it could be like a little bonus addition here and there? Anyway, looking forward to the final decision!

Hi, Ty! First of all, I'm a great fan of your work! I'm new here at Patreon, and I'm having trouble finding the rewards for download. Could you tell me where to get it? Thanks a lot!

Hi Joao!! Thanks for joining my Patreon and for your kind words! If you signed up after April 30th then you were not charged. You will see payment process on the 1st of each month. Then you'll see rewards sent via a link in Patron Messenger. If you signed up before April 30th and haven't seen a message with the download links, just let me know and I'll make sure you're taken care of. Let me know if that makes sense. Thanks again! Ty

Part ONE of THREE for Session 28: DESIGN Principles Part VII "Movement"
(Keep your pledge or for newcomers signup between now and May 31)

"The capturing of movement in art plays a key role in storytelling. It creates believability and rhythm that echoes the design while engaging the viewer to see deeper into your ideas. Movement simply"moves us".
Excerpt from Design Principles Part VII

In Session 28, Design Principles Part VII, I will focus on movement in art and how to apply it to your own work. I will look at examples from the past as well as case studies in nature. I'll apply it to line, shape and pattern to provide a range of elemental ideas. I'll discuss anecdotes, procedures and systems for applying it effectively as well as compositional approaches to layout interesting scenes within perspective. We will analyze and apply this to characters, environments, and props in a variety of ways. If you are looking to take your design skills to the next level, this is for you!

My patrons will get:

-Structured HD Video Tutorial with commentary, annotations, and detailed process demonstration

-Explanations and demonstrations on stylization/design process, color approach, and step by step instruction to create massive environments and their color for game, film and animation.

Yes, you can stop or edit payment at any time. If you pledge before the monthly deadline (The last day of each month) you will receive that month's package/content, and your card will be charged. Content is sent out after the 7th of each month, after Patreon processes payments. If you pledge after the deadline, your card will not be charged and you will not receive that session's content. As long as you are pledged before the deadline of each month, you'll receive the session. You cannot sign up after the deadline and receive the content if that is what you are asking.

(Keep your pledge or for new patrons signup between now and April 30)

"Straights Vs Curves in a character is a balance of dueling lines. When a strong curve is added, an equal and opposing curve can counter.

"Straights Vs Curves is an age old battle of creating appeal through variation and repetition. By implementing a pattern using both, visual interest exudes from your image."
Excerpt from Design Principles Part VI

In Session 27, Design Principles Part VI, I will focus on the infinite ways to use Straights and Curves in art. We will be discussing anecdotes, procedures and systems for using them effectively as well as compositional approaches to layout interesting scenes within perspective. Some images will weigh heavy on the contrast between one and the other while other images will focus on using them in tandem.

Hey Ty. It is so easy to forget about feedback and encouragement. I like to keep it simple, so here hoes: you are doing a fantastic job with your Patreon! The Principles of Design idea and how you have manifested it is really good and very much enjoying it. Hope to see more videos in the future about landscape/environments. Thank you and bless you.

Hey there Ty! I just found you and was interested in becoming a patron, but I have a question: are you offering discounts to your gumroad archive each month for your patrons, especially to new patrons who obviously are way behind with all the sessions? I'm a patron to a few other artists and they all offer this, but I couldn't find any mention of it on your tiers. P.S. my apologies if I posted this in the wrong place

Hello Ty! I really like your art and I intend on becoming a Patron very soon. I would like to know if eventually in the future, you intend of doing a upload on gumroad of a bundle with ALL that you've taught up untill now for those who are trying to catch up (just like myself) :)

tycarter - 30 Mar 18 12:20
Hi Jessica! Thanks for considering becoming a patron! There are currently over 170+ hours of content available on gumroad and much of it is bundled by Session (3-9 videos in each pack). I haven't considered bundling more together because of the immense file sizes but I like the idea. I know many artists are looking to get past content they may have missed so I added the patreon discount stretch goal when we reach 300 patrons. And we are nearly there!
