Hi!

My name is Simon Tye and I am a semi-professional miniatures painter!

I started my career many years ago and I am now looking to take the practice from Hobby to Profession. I have a long way to go yet, and will likely make as many mistakes as I will successes, but as long as we learn, we make mistakes. I look forward to sharing my learning experience, my skills and my knowledge with you through Patreon.

Ambition:
I have not entered competition, but with your support and advice (because for me, this is a two way experience!) I may look to develop a piece or two per year that could be competition-worthy and make a name for myself!

Right now, I’m focusing on my own projects and Patreon is one.

My main objective is to continue learning and improving my skills; showing you each step as I do; from beginners to most advanced painting techniques. For example painting armies, box-art and display level work or as I've stated, contest level work!

Through this adventure I will show you how I have found my own way to paint miniatures, and more importantly, how I've found NOT to! I will share with you the different techniques for all levels, an easy and simple way to deal with your miniatures, and I am looking to start mastering those pesky airbrush tricks and much more! 

What will you find:

- Quickly and effectively paint with brushes - don't fear the brush!
- Where to begin, and how to get the most out of yourself from Day 1
- How to sculpt bases for individual miniatures, dioramas and displays
- Be the first to see my work! Long before they'll go on Instagram! 
- WIP pictures and videos you can follow as I progress.

What will you get:
-
One guaranteed video tutorial each month and one COMMISSAR bonus content video
- Paints, materials and miniatures, as giveaways! (see my rewards schemes!)
- Once per month, I will reward one subscriber a fully painted miniature by me, as a giveaway regardless of subscription or patronage! Let's keep it fun!
- Be part of my community, this is going to be interactive and entertaining, a welcome place for questions, feedback and critiquing. I believe in critiques as the best way to master your piece, and that feedback is never negative if it is constructive. Let's use this platform to better ourselves! 

Support me to continue improving!
