What is a Patreon Pack?
From February 2015 to February 2017, LeAndra Dawn’s Patreon page was open for pledges to receive images and content related to those images. Content included high resolution images, detail sheets, image walkthroughs (About the Image), timelapse videos, tips and extras. Later packs included step-by-step images and image studies. Both of these types of packs are now slowly becoming available on LeAndra Dawn’s stores.
LeAndra Dawn’s Patreon page is still updated, but content releases are on hold (no return date yet).
