Have you considered joining/switching to the KR Fine Art Academy instead?
It's a MIUCH BETTER alternative to Patreon!

Did you know that by joining the Academy, you will have access to all of the same content PLUS all of these benefits below as well?

I will still be uploading regular tutorials to Patreon so if you would still like to join Patreon (or are a member already) there's no need to worry! If you are a member of Patreon and would like to switch over to the KR Fine Art Academy but have a few questions, click here to read through the FAQ or contact me!
