Will work for money…
Welcome back to Studiocolrouphobia.net!
This week we have some exciting news, a bit of info on Road to Jove and some sketches to show, so let’s dig right into it!
We started a Patreon!
After doing a little survey Studio Colrouphobia has opened up our first Patreon project!
What’s this patreon thing?
Patreon enables fans to give ongoing support to their favorite creators.
The best way of explaining it is through Patreon’s own video:
In short, so far the system is built so that you can pledge whatever amount you choose in a recurring manner. This means, for Empyrean Champions, that at the beginning of each month you donate a certain amount and receive your rewards shortly after. You can cancel your support at any time and you can access past rewards also.
Will I have to pay to see Your art?
The result of each month will be available for anyone to see, but if you support it, you get a big lump of goodies. At $1 a month, you get to see the work about a month before we post it anywhere else. From $5 a month, you get to see all the work in progress files as well as receiving some kickass wallpapers made up from these illustrations. And the more you support the more you get.
At $20 you get digital sketchbooks and the fullsized version of the illustrations, for instance, as well as layered PSD’s.
This project will be a fun one, and we hope you will join us and support us as we build a pantheon of Empyrean Champions.
What are Empyrean Champions?
We’re glad you asked.
Empyrean Champions are characters who have a supernatural counterpart, an ethereal self if you will, that can manifest and fight for whatever cause the champion seem fit. These characters come from Fantasy, Contemporary Fiction or Science Fiction.
We set up a variety of backer rewards, including for those who wish to follow the process of creating the Champions, collectible prints for those who like to collect new art, and collaborative for those who want to add their spice to the worlds of Empyrean Champions!

Some more info on Road to Jove
As you’re probably aware, our webcomic The Road to Jove is up and running, and we’re about halfway through the Prologue: In Crow Country.
We’re getting a lot of questions about it and Aaron thought it was probably time to shed some light on a few of the recurring ones. Firstly, thank you if you’ve been reading and enjoying it so far. The feedback’s been awesome considering how new it is, and how little we’ve promoted it through traditional webcomic channels.
So head on over to Aaron’s blog to read some answers in regards to The Website, Physical copies, Is it free, and How much do we update.
Coincidentally, Aaron and David had their first proper interview last week. Here’s their first RTJ interview with Liam Salt at The Cult Den.
As you know Studio Colrouphobia is a two (wo)man organisation. Here are some sketches to show what Natasja has been up to in between commercial jobs:
Bast/Sekhmet- Natasja Sondered, 2015
Beetle mount- Natasja Sondered, 2015
We still have spots open for 100€ commissions. Feeling like you need an interesting piece of digital art? (Single character, simple background) Let us know! These kind of commissions help us evolve, quite often our clients give excellent briefs and have creative ideas regarding things we haven’t thought of. So take the chance 🙂
For anything outside of those specs, or if you need any information not covered here, go to the bottom of the About page and send us a message through the contact form, or just email us. The address is right up there, to the right of this post!
Please note that Studio Colrouphobia will not do any paid commissions based on any IP’s not allowing any reproduction and/or derivative work.
