Welcome to my Patreon page!

My name is Leo Aquino and for the past few years I have been posting up my artwork on Instagram (CHECK IT OUT HERE! ) and it's been really fun. But, I want to be able to give you guys even more content and individual attention. This is where Patreon comes in. Please check out the rewards section to see what I have to offer!

To summarize it, I will illustrate a new a character illustration every week and post it on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin called "Patreon Painting". (I'll make the art in the order at which the patron signed up) I just want to make sure i'm making art that you guys actually want! The low resolution version will be on Instagram and the other social networks listed, but the Hi-resolution image will be available ONLY here, along with the recorded step by step painting process videos


Another reason why I wanted to start a Patreon, was to be able to focus on helping more individuals with their own art. I get many emails and messages from artists of all skill levels asking me for advice and how to improve their own work. I've always wanted to be a teacher so maybe this can be my way of starting that. I hope that my many years in the games industry as a professional concept artist can help me help you in some sort of way. So i've included a Tier in the rewards section which will essentially let me be your tutor.

~~~A little background about myself ~~~

I am an artist who loves to create stories and characters that bring joy to people. I like making people happy. I love developing characters and illustrations that will bring a smile to people’s faces. I'm also in the process of self publishing my very first children's book, set to release this summer!

I have an extensive background creating art in the mobile games industry, most notably for companies such as Disney Interactive and Jam City (creators of Peanuts: Snoopy Pop!). There, I was lucky enough and blessed to have the opportunity to draw and paint the characters I loved when I was a kid. Characters like Mike Wazowski, Sully, Charlie Brown, and Snoopy just to name a few.
