Where to begin? Well, since I'm not a big fan of "pitching" things, let's try a little introduction of sorts....



I am Les L. Garner, though for a very long time I have released quite a bit of art and operated my studio under the name of Sixus1. For 25 years now, I've worked in a variety of art fields, starting out as a comic book illustrator and then finding myself up to my eyeballs in 3D modeling, animation and character development. These things have taken me on a crazy journey through the years, one where I've gotten to work with some incredible people, meet and work with quite a few of my artistic heroes, and ultimately, reach a point where, now, I'm looking at what will hopefully be a new chapter as I launch my Patreon.



So why Patreon? Well, there a lots of reasons, but most of them boil down to my desire for independence, greater creative control of my work, and most importantly, closing the gap between myself and you, the folks who are into the variety of things I do. For whatever reason you are here: comics, sketching, painting, 3D art and animation, the thing that I'm struck by is the idea that we can reach each other in this interesting way, where the work I do from day to day is provided to you through a direct, raw and personal format, with a high level of interactivity. The value of that is, I believe, a great thing, that can't be achieved with middle men in the way, and so I'm offering this Patreon, with the variety of tiers, as a new, and I believe very cost effective way for folks who already enjoy my work through a variety of avenues to come to me, directly. 



Through this effort, you'll have access to my work and processes in a deeper way than ever before, a steady stream of content in all the areas that I spend my days, along with opportunities for learning and even exclusive, one of a kind personal commission offerings. 



Frankly, this is such a new thing to me, and something I've thought about for a long while now, that I have no clue what to expect. It may fall completely flat. It may take off like a rocket beyond my wildest dreams. But one thing is for certain: you never know till you try, and so I give the Sixus1 Patreon, official platform for the various arts of yours truly, Les L. Garner. 


I hope you'll sign up for any of the various subscription tiers and come join me as I continue exploring and expanding what I with comics, 3D, and so much more.

Thanks to you all!

Tiers
Gimme The Art!!!
$3 or more per month

"Gimme The Art!!!" gets you private, early access to comics, paintings and traditional that I do, this tier is where you'll find frequent shares, at least weekly, of new sketches, studies, comic book pages, paintings... and who knows what else. I produce a LOT of art, though, so the things I share with the public, you'll get first access to, plus a lot more that will be just for you! 


  • First look at traditional art posts before they hit other channels
  • Exclusive traditional art shared only here
  • Exclusive month in review video post discussing art and other projects in the past month
Gimme 3D!
$5 or more per month

One of the main art forms I produce on a daily basis is 3D modeling and animation, with a huge amount of it being in the form of spanking new original content for use in a variety of 3D programs for hobbyists and professionals alike, including Unreal and Unity game engines, Poser, Reallusion, and heavy amount of content for Daz Studio, producing this work primarily using ZBrush, Maya and Blender.   With this tier of patronage you'll receive:

  • Frequent WIP (work in progress) posts about projects and pieces in production (with the exception of anything clients have me sworn to secrecy on...)
  • First look and exclusive 3D art shares
  • Random "thank you" shares of one content package chosen from the huge Sixus1 catalog
  • A monthly exclusive video sharing and discussing what I've been up to with 3D

  • Every month, one spanking new kit for Daz Studio (Note that I will add Poser support if there is demand for it, so don't hesitate to let me know!) This could be clothing/costuming, a new character/morph package, a scene/environment kit, or an all new original figure/creature! Not only will you get the package, but you'll see WIP images shared of it's development in progress, and if enough folks join up for this tier, I have in mind some nifty benefits to add beyond that. We shall see...
I Want It All!!!!
$25 or more per month

This the ultimate bundle, everything offered in all of the other tiers, combined into one mega-package.
