This Patreon is for those who are interested in more exclusive content, including behind-the-scenes and works in progress of my propmaking and art, and also for those who are more into seeing my cosplays in general. I also hope it can be more of a personal motivation on my part to making my works more frequent; I'll still be posting on my social media, but Patreon will be the first to receive updates and more monthly goodies.

My name is Rino (ree-no), but I am also known as shrug emoji!
I have been a self-taught artist since early 2016; it has been a therapeutic way for me to express myself, and it is a hobby I haven't been taking seriously until fairly recently. My personal preference is traditional line art, but I also love a challenge.
I took an interest in cosplay around April 2015, and started attending conventions shortly after. Since then, I have slowly worked around to start attending out-of-town conventions in Dallas, and always found inspiration in other cosplayers who have put in numerous hours in showcasing their hard work for a few hours in a day.
And, as of most recently, I have become a portrait photographer ever since October 2016. I have, however, been a scenic photographer since 2012, and I figured the transition would be a nice change in atmosphere.

Since Patreon is a monthly commitment, the money that you contribute will go towards my ~artistic~ progress, stamps for mailing out monthly rewards, paying for outside expenses (because college life), and, of course, art supplies, since traditional works require more resources than digital works!

Thanks for taking your time to read this, and I look forward to having your support!
