For overviews of my videos go visit https://www.trovarion.com/ - Patreon's indexing is not really great, that's why I made a video index on my homepage!

The Present


If you found your way here you either enjoy my Youtube channel that is dedicated to tutorials on the hobby of miniature painting and sculpting on my mission to help painters around the world become better AND happier at the hobby we all love. Or you enjoy the live streams and chose to support my goal to always create more and better content for YOUR enjoyment.

Many of you also know my own miniature line of high quality resin casts that is growing in size on a monthly basis and that is my humble approach to leading a self employed life through the wonderful world that is miniatures - You can find them all here, alongside a selection of my award winning painted miniatures and busts:

To this day I have completed sculpts for companies such as Aradia Miniatures, LIFE Miniatures (unreleased), Ourobouros and for a multitude of private collectors all over the world.

The Past

I can look back on 16+ years of experience in painting and almost 10 years of sculpting with the ambition to become one of the most accomplished miniature creators and painters. Over the years I have won awards in multiple Golden Demon competitions and rewards in other shows for both my painting and my sculpting. The picture below shows my attempt at entering 11 categories at the last German Golden Demon 2013 where I managed to pick up 3 Trophies and 11 finalist medals. Recently I also was awarded medals for my sculpting and painting displays at the Duke of Bavaria 2017 and I also have my work featured in the Museum of Miniatures (MuMi).

  

I have taught multiple painting classes around the world and I am a teacher by trade, always concerned with finding ways to teach for a maximum of understanding and cater to the needs of my students and what I can do to achieve their learning goals in both sculpture and miniature painting. 

Why Patreon and what's in it for you?

Direclty tap into my extensive experience within the miniature industry: The goal of this Patreon is to show you my painting and sculpting philosophy; to help you master basic, intermediate and advanced techniques and to show everyone that it is fun to try new ways and new approaches in miniature painting. It will also enable me to create more and better content for YOU to improve and achieve goals during your miniature related journey, and make you a happier person while doing so, communicating my mindset of doing what is FUN and REWARDING in this hobby. 

Patreons will get EXCLUSIVE content in the form of:
 
  • PDF Painting Guides to EVERY miniature I paint, whether featured in the videos or not. 
  • Extensive Video Guides featuring painting-techniques, textures, color theory, composition, how to build intricate and unique bases and also my thoughts on ways of painting, sculpting anatomy and other tips and tricks.

Additionally you will receive:

  • Early access to all my Youtube videos AND you will get to influence the content that I upload.
  • Access to the Discord chat server, where you can get my professional feedback as a miniature designer, sculptor and painter on your creations, and a helpful community of fellow painters and sculptors!
