My name is DeVo, I am a mediocre artist creating Digital and Traditional Art, 3D animations and thinking/trying on creating music. My goal is to improve my skills and mostly support my family.Why do I need to create a patreon for that? You can improve yourself with practice, there is no need for crowdfund.
- By creating a patreon and getting any kind of pay monthly, I would feel obligated to improve and do my work since I'm paid for it. This would drive me away from basicly wasting my free time and focus on my work.What do you mean by saying you are a mediocre artist?
- As I said before, in my own opinion I am a mediocre artist, I'm not experianced in creating art as anything professional. So far I were making art once in a while as a small hobby, thus it may not be good quality and I do not have my own specific art style (which I think may be my greatest weakness). Systematic work for about a year will greatly improve my skills and help me settle my own artstyle. What am I creating?
-As for the 3D animation, what I have been doing for a long time now is taking a model from unity assets store and create an animation sets for it making for example: walking, running, jumping, attacking and combo attacks animations, something like animations used in games. Recently I have made an animation set for a few weapons in a fps game style. My only experiance with animation so far is only with Unity 3D which has just a few animating features, so I guess learning how to animate in Blender wouldn't be a problem if necessary.
-There is not much to add for drawing all is left are details. I have been drwaing on paper since I was very young but as I grew older I drew less and less. For three years now I were playing around with digital art and since I got my graphical tablet I almost stopped drawing on paper. For all this years of digital art and even earlier there was very little progress and hard work. This is why I need that little bit of support to start creating something good.Oon my computer I have a bunch of digitals that are unfinished or left as a concept which maby two out of them I am a little proud about. This is why I need to be obligated to draw, since when I get bored with making one thing for an hour my thoughts are all about "this is pointless", "there is no purpose in making this", "no one will even see this"... Taking it as a job would eliminate all of this and make me finish it because someone wants/payed for it.
-As for making music there is no close plans for that yet so I am not going to say anything about it for now.
What are my goals and future plans?
-The main goal is to support my parents and grandparents (read next point)
-The primary goal as for myself is to improve as much as possible and get to the point that I can be proud of what I creat and share
-Start creating consumable type of art like designs, logos etc.
-Another goal would be creating a Loving community around the name of DeVoAs for the plans:
-As I get familiar with my own art style I would like to open commissions
-Create a Discord server for and to build our community What do you mean by supporting your family?
-I would like to start uploading videos on youtube like:
-Livestreams of drawing
-Maby start creating animation memes in further future
-Maby start streaming in a regular schedule(type of streams are up to potential viewers: gaming, drawing, vlogging...)
-If I save up enough money in a couple years I could buy new gear for drawing to improve fruther (far future plan)
-One of the main reasons for creating this patreon is that I want to support the people that I love and care about. My parents have been in pretty bad and unstable financial state and on top of that there comes illness and addictions. My mother already had two breast tumor operations which cost us a lot of money and made her unable to work for a month after each operation. I am worried that it may happen again and lead to falling in big debts or even worse-advanced breast cancer. Another issue is my fathers alcohol and cigarettes addiction which is getting worse throughout the time. My dad is the main source of earnings, if he becomes sick, there will be no money to afford medical help for him. Since I am too young to take a job and I'm still studying, I thought the best way to handle the situation is to use my hobbies and my spare time to make a little profit out of it. My goal after a bit of time would be around 50$ a month, this would be just enough to set a stable ground for us and make some savings for an emergency.
For more information and start of uploading content it is planned for 24-30 of June this year.Thank you a lot for reading and I hope for pleasant future cooperation!
