I'm also on twitch now! I'll make live painting really soon: My channel

Also, if you want to have access to videos, speedpaintings, work in progress and updates, you can support me on my Patreon, it would really help me live as an artist and start bigger project. Even the smallest support would really help me a lot, and make me more confident about my art (and I don't force you at all, I'm already really grateful with the favs and the comments I get!)

And thank you (again) for your amazing support!!!!!!!
