Personal
I have joined deviantArt many years ago, and the community has shaped me in a positive way. Thats why I like to share insights and keep on contributing my work to the community here.

Professional
I have drawn since i can think, and today i´m working as freelance illustrator. A dream came true. Cover illustration and poster designs helped me to get into the freelance world. I love my job and can not think of a better profession

Goals
Right now I´m doing more personal works than ever and make a living as a part time art instructor and through art conventions. I´m interested in challenges, collaboration and opportunities. If you have a project that goes up my alley - don´t hesitate to contact me.

Feedback
I´m glad for every kind of feedback - notes, comments or constructive critique.
Sorry when I don´t answer every favorite, but it is much appreciated - if you leave a comment I´ll always try to reply.

featured on Altpick connects! altpick.com/news/10294 Ultear-process-small by fantasioIn case you did not know, I put a process to all my pieces on patreon (80% of the time) Just sayin ;)

Have a nice day!
Just updated my patreon campaign page, have a look here: www.patreon.com/fantasio
It is really hard to scare all patrons away, but I do my best;)

Thoughts on patreon

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 11, 2016, 8:53 AM


I´m having lots of content, hi-res, video process and psd-wise. However, right now I do the most for my physical class on digital painting, where I can explain lots of stuff in person. The small group of  my current Patrons benefit from this too. The problem right now is that I would love to do exclusive content.

Everyone loves exclusive content, at least over on Patreon. However, to do that, I´d need to reach a certain goal (look at my page, it is really not much) but I´m still far away from that goal. That means I have to focus on other things, which prevents me from doing the exclusive stuff that I would need to do in order to get more patrons.

That is the part where the snake bites it´s own tail.

As it is now, I´ll do the following: I´m planning on doing some small workshops for Gumroad.
This ensures that I have a nice presentation, well thought out concept, video, voice over, etc. in a neat package. But; it is not exclusive to patrons.
The $10 Tier patrons will get this workshop too, but it is not as exclusive as I would want it to be / or as you could have it.

Depending on how the Gumroad venture will work out, I might leave patreon behind - or maybe I´ll keep my sketching habit and portrait studies up on here... we´ll see. 

The thing is that at the time when I joined patreon, no one used it. Now every artist uses it excessively and people get bored easily and follow fads- not their fault. It is just natural to find out what platform works and which doesn´t. I hope this post will  not go by as unseen as the most other posts and lead to a little conversation about an interesting matter.


Cheers

Hey! Thanks a lot for allowing the submission of 'Cthulhu and the ninth wave' in the TMA-NewTalents group! If you haven't already, do check out the group info and blog, as your best submitted works will be entered in 'The Mad Artist' project, a free and new Facebook platform for talented artists. Will let you know when that happens, of course. :D  Keep in touch and keep creating!

Hi,

I'm launching my new pet project... CommishArtify.com

Basically, it's a marketplace for art commission services. Artists keep 100% of the commission. Yes, no service fees. I am inviting you to be part of this fun site and help me populate it. For more info and how to get started, click here: commishartify.com/about-us/ And also, if you don't mind, please share this to your friends as well. This will really help a lot of artists who accept commissions. Thanks!
