In the past couple of years a few people have asked me to do something like a Patreon so here I am. I have been active in the emulation scene in varying capacities over the past 6+ years contributing artwork among other things to various emulator frontends and launchers like HyperSpin, RocketLauncher and now LaunchBox.

This has always been and will continue to be a hobby unless this somehow tops my salary which is unlikely. Now that I have two young boys as many discover, hobbies like this take a back seat, a few late night hours after being completely exhausted is my only option for the most part. This Patreon to me keeps me motivated to stay invested and continue contributing to the community and also justifies the use of the precious few hours I have. This is nothing new, I am not alone, every parent goes through this in various ways and I know it will get easier. 

That being said, I want to provide this Patreon to the community so that people can support improving and influence my existing work, also provide a way for people to make requests for custom artwork for their project and even a way for people just to thank me. One thing to mention is I am not a traditional artist, I can't draw, what I am is well versed in Photoshop and dangerous in Illustrator. I am good with photo manipulation, cropping, touch up, things of that nature, basically what I am saying is don't ask me to draw Ryu for you, not my thing. This is also important because I rely on a lot of existing artwork, so if anything being requested is for commercial use, I need to know about it so I can adjust accordingly. Unless otherwise specified, all artwork requested will be shared with other Patreons and appropriate communities like LaunchBox, RetroArch, HyperSpin and RocketLauncher.

Here is a list of existing work that you can support, influence, report issues, etc.

[RetroArch] Overlay pack https://github.com/libretro/overlay-borders/tree/m...

You can also support some of the other various things I have done that can be mostly found on github https://github.com/nosh01. Github is somewhat unorganized and old, I will be updating it soon.

There are a ton of things that are floating around on the forums at http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/ and http://www.rlauncher.com/.

Right now these are items that I am accepting requests on and how I am pricing things. This list will grow based on demand. Anything requested will be delivered within the month (unless requested on the 30th) requested and I will allow up to two revisions on any artwork delivered. Although I have specific rewards, I can cater to your needs, just ask.
