Remember - I offer everything starting at $1.00. The higher tiers are for corresponding vanity roles in my discord server, but otherwise serve no purpose. You get to determine how much you'd like to give me for all of my content. ♥

DISCORD - PRECIOUS PETALS
Sometimes, heavy real-world conversation does crop up in my server, especially as it relates to the suppression of fictional expression. A lot of the folks in my server, myself included, have dealt with that kind of stifling environment in both past and present. We try not to dwell though - this is a space meant for positivity, sharing, and uplifting each other first and foremost.
While these conversations don't happen very often, I ask that you practice personal responsibility and duck out if something is uncomfortable or distressing for you. We'll all be here later when the topic has shifted to safer waters, I promise you that.
I urge those of you who want to join to keep an open, unbiased mind. Psychology, especially of the sexual variety, is an oft-talked-about topic in my server. There is an absolute zero-tolerance policy for shaming of any kind. Shame is never the answer to tough subjects.
We talk aout paraphilias, and problematique fiction. There are off color jokes abound, and on more than one occassion I have threatened to read Necrophilia Variations to everyone. That seems to not dissuade anyones' antics in the least.
All fiction is lovely fiction to someone, even if it may personally disgust or upset you.
Incest, underage, gore, noncon, torture, snuff, bestiality, and every obscene or morally objectionable thing you can think of, in possibly any permutation you can conceive. I defend the indefensible; I defend the right for people to express themselves and their existence as honestly and as authentically through art and fiction as they want, need, or can.
While I might find some of those topics in the realm of fiction uncomfortable, distressing, or bordering on morally objectionable myself - they have every right to exist, and I have no right to deny that existence. There is potential for beauty in brutality; there is potential for a rotten core in any perfectly polished moral.
If you're still, somehow, unclear on my stance regarding fictional content, perhaps this Neil Gaiman article, or this Gutterotica statement will assuage your worry. If you are worried while reading this, perhaps I'm not the person for you.
The Archive | Everything I've done since 2015 up until now, in a convenient dropbox archive. The archive is only available through my discord server as a precautionary measure to prevent easily leaking content. WIPs, PSDs, stories, higher resolution files, doodles, videos, comic pages, finished illustrations, and a ton I'm probably forgetting. ♥
Layered PSDs | All of my layers are intact and you get to root around the nitty-gritty of my art process. This requires a program like Photoshop to work properly!
Worldbuilding | You'll get to see characters and stories come to life through conceptual doodles and my own personal musings that don't make it into the public eye.
High-res Files | All the details. All of them. You'll get high resolution copies of finished illustrations for your own use and entertainment.
Discord Access | Once you subscribe to me, access is yours! A link to my discord will be in the first welcome newsletter you get, once you've subscribed.
Illustration Essays | I put a lot of thought into my illustrations and process. When I'm finished, I usually like to write a fair amount about how I got to where I am, what I liked and disliked about the piece and its individual process, and what I'd like to do differently or similarly for next time.
Works in Progress | I save a lot of WIP snapshots for my art from beginning to end; you get to see all of them in order.
Doodles and Scrapped Art | Radiant Roses and up get to see the stuff that didn't work, or was only ever meant to be a doodle. Stuff that most likely wouldn't make it into the public eye.
Exclusive Stories and Artwork | Short stories and novels with their accompanying illustrations - covers both front and back, and the illustrations both public and exclusive for each piece of writing.
