After the dazzle of day is gone,
Only the dark dark night shows
to my eyes the stars;
After the clangor of organ majestic,
or chorus, or perfect band,
Silent, athwart my soul, moves the
symphony true.

Ethereal Collection available only in 2015 by jasonbehnke
Ethereal Collection available only in 2015

-----
SPECIAL NOTE FOR DEVIANTS: Soon I'll be going into the Astral Tier and explaining what's inside there (I've already explained Bronze, Silver, and Gold). The Astral Tier is where you get a seat here in the studio, behind the curtain, allowing me to share everything that goes into making Tales of Piecora. This will include narrated process videos and tutorials for painting the illustrations, creating the terrain in which the encounters of Tales of Piecora are played out using tabletop rpg methods, insights into the our thought processes, and so forth. Please note that all Tiers will unlock in January 2016 when Tales of Piecora launches. Right now we are offering this Ethereal Tier which honors those supporting us now during the development of this project by offering exclusive items only available during these months leading up to January, and never again. Please join us now and start your collection today!
-----

Tales of Piecora pg1 ch1 WIP by jasonbehnke
Tales of Piecora pg1 ch1 WIP

What is Tales of Piecora?

We are halfway through August and halfway to 10 subscribers! Remember if we get at least 10 people to join this month at www.patreon.com/piecora, we'll send you the first of the collectible Ethereal Totem Cards featured each month between now and end of December. The only way to get all 5 cards is to sign up and start your collection today.

What exactly will Tales of Piecora look like when it launches in January? Is it an ebook, web comic, a vid doc, or something else?

Let's look under the hood and get into some technical aspects. Each month starting in January 2016, Tales of Piecora will exist within a monthly Chapter consisting of a many-paged .pdf jam-packed with artwork and story. The .pdfs will be formatted landscape, 1024x768, for easy reading on ipads, tablets, computers and phones.

Seen here is page 1 of Chapter 1 to give you a good idea of what you can expect to see in January. It is still a work in progress and not final, as things may change here and there between now and January. But we wanted to show you an actual page from Tales of Piecora, and give you a taste of what this product is. Again, this is not final, and slight changes may occur between now and January. But if we needed to go live tomorrow, this is what you'd see.

Each Chapter will feature a fully-painted cover (this is not the cover, it's just the first page of the story) followed by interior illustrations, spot illustrations, vignettes, sketches, and so on, coexisting within the written story itself.

The artwork is created in Corel Painter with post work done in Adobe Photoshop. Branding and graphic design is created using Adobe Illustrator, and the whole thing is laid out in Adobe inDesign.

Tales of Piecora will live on www.patreon.com/piecora when it launches in January 2016. The only way to read each Chapter is to sign up and choose from a variety of different subscriptions which will be unlocked in January (right now only the Ethereal Tier is available while we continue development on Tales of Piecora).

Ethereal Totem Cards by jasonbehnke
Ethereal Totem Cards

Remember, if we get 10 people signed up at www.patreon.com/piecora, we'll mail you this collectible Ethereal Totem Card for August. Each month from now until December will feature a different uniquely designed and painted collectible Ethereal Totem Card as work continues on getting Tales of Piecora ready for launch in January 2016. Depicted here is the August Totem, and it is only available until the end of this month. When August ends, this Ethereal Totem becomes extinct, and a new Totem will be revealed in September.

This is the Ethereal Phase of the project, meaning the development phase leading up to launch in January. What else do you get for signing up now?

- Ethereal Badge (low and high res)

- Monthly Ethereal Totem (different design each month) (low and high res)

- Monthly Collectible Ethereal Totem Card
(if we get 10 people signed up at www.patreon.com/piecora)

- Store discount on all fine art and illustration prints at jasonbehnke.com

- Special credits at the end of each monthly Chapter when Piecora goes live in January 2016.

Signing up in August is the only chance to get the full Ethereal Totem set. It also gives you a headstart on your Totem collection, which you'll be able to cash in for really cool prizes shipped to you for free when Tales of Piecora launches next year.

This is all just us saying THANK YOU!!! for supporting us and getting in now, before Tales of Piecora launches in January.

Come share the journey with us, start your collection today, and spread the word to your friends about Tales of Piecora coming in January!!!

Piecora - Thank you for your Patronage by jasonbehnke
Piecora - Thank you for your Patronage

Another sketchy of Piecora... this one is for thanking Patrons for signing up. I'm not sure if she's pleasantly relaxed in this picture (no braids, hair let down), or if she's saying something painfully sarcastic, or if she's bribing you to eat a berry she just found nearby. Would you trust this face?

Edeotor by jasonbehnke
Edeotor

Tales of Piecora (www.patreon.com/piecora) is finally being revealed today with Edeotor, a place that Piecora sees often (for better or worse) while traveling between the lands of Senja and Kannoniah. In fact, it marks the halfway point between the two realms, and she uses it as a landmark as such. When she sees the towers of Edeotor, she also knows that Kiodanneth, a small frontier town, is nearby where she can rest and resupply.

You can order a print of this painting at

I think you should submit some of your fantastic art to groups here on DA, to get more exposure (and with it, more potential subscribers). I've lined up a few that you can start with, and I encourage you to give it a try. You can search groups.deviantart.com for other groups to submit your current and future works to, but I've selected some that are both popular groups and cover most of your gallery's content.

> MassEffectClub for your Mass Effect artworks.
> Realm-of-Fantasy for your various fantasy pieces.
> DragonSpirit-Club for your works which have dragons in them.
> Art-Anatomy-Study for your figure studies.

Those should cover the basics. Submitting to them will really help you get noticed more, and everything will almost certainly snowball from there. Good luck, and keep up the great work!
