I’m gonna do something different this month, and instead of showing you a small sneak peek of this month’s Patreon rewards, I will show you a full preview. Do mind though, it’s still a work in progress and I still have time left before deadline. I’m still polishing the art and work at other pieces!
Recap of my Patreon tiers:
Tier 1 “Tea Leaf Novice” – Patreon Activity Feed
Tier 2 “Tea Plant Apprentice” – Patreon Activity Feed + Texture Package
Tier 3 “Tea Cup Initiate” – Patreon Activity Feed + Texture Package + Tutorial Package
Tier 4 “Tea Pot Adept” – Patreon Activity Feed + Texture Package + Tutorial Package + Border Package
Tier 5 “Tea Festivity Master” – Patreon Activity Feed + Texture Package + Tutorial Package + Border Package + Themed Art Package
Preview: Texture Package
A new reward for this month is the Texture Package. It contains 5 textures that can be used for different things such as unit frames (if you implement it with SharedMedia addon), weakauras, or other creative work. I love customized textures, especially once implemented with SharedMedia, because you can personalize your UI so much. Works for Elvui, DBM, Skada, and many more addons.
The art can also be used for your own creative work if you want to do extended work on your UI. I’ve seen some of my patrons done their own version of my UIs through some awesome Photoshop work, and I love to give you the tools to customize how much you want! Go nuts!
Preview: Tutorial Package
In this video tutorial I show you how to track buffs and debuffs with dynamic groups (WeakAuras). To go along with the tutorial you get the art for the title banner (see above, text “Dots” is a separate piece and you can write what you want there).
Preview: Borders Package
Another new reward is the Border package. It contains border art: circle borders, squares, diamonds, dividers, corners etc (I still have a few more to paint yet – work in progress!). The idea is that you should be able to do either a “lite” version of Dreamcatcher UI, or alternatively complement it with the borders. I’ve done a “dream” and a “nightmare” version of each border, so you can choose between a light touch or a darker touch. Or both! The point is that you will be able to build it and personalize your UI however you want. I hope you like it, I had a lot of fun creating it!
Preview: Themed Art Package “Dreamcatcher”
This month’s interface art is called the “Dreamcatcher”. It has had a curios evolution from my original idea. I started this month with the idea to do a completely white themed art package based on dreamcatchers. But as I went along, I realized that the art looked maybe a little too bright and happy? So then I experimented with the idea that one of the dreamcatchers had caught a nightmare and I created a “corrupted” version of it. It looked so cool that I continued with it in more places. The result was that this UI has a bit of a duality in nature – you could build it as a pure “dream” version of it, or a add a few more of the darker pieces to create a “nightmare” look. The border package certainly helps to create that personalized look.
Here is a close-up on a few of the pieces:
The Patreon rewards are pure art, but if you want to build a UI of them, there will be help on my blog!
Deadline for May’s rewards (Dreamcatcher) is: May 31st 23:59. Pledge a donation before that time (read up on tiers and rewards) and you will receive the rewards somewhere between 1-7 of June. After that, the art will be unavailable!
