This offer is for all Knights of my Patreon. To become a Knight, you can either pledge $10, or accumulate 4 months of $5 pledges, or 20 months of $1 pledges. Below follows a copy-pasta from my post about these sketches:
Here's something new: a personalized sketch, from me, to you! Each Knight gets their own!
All Knights can now participate in 'Your Character Here' sketch collage thing. Message me (preferably through Patreon Messages) with:
- Which (one, single, uno, 1) silhouette you'd like to pick A-W
- What character should that be (your OCs, fanart, my characters, all good)
- What should the listed attributes be (eg. hair, hand, bosom or package volume, facial expression, outfit), if available
Restrictions apply: no underage characters, no scat or guro themes. Have the author's permission for OCs - you have mine for all my characters. Still, just ask and we'll work something out! It's like a tiny commission.
The sketch will be prepared and presented here, on Twitter and other galleries, perhaps as a collage. I'll work in batches of several characters at a time, so please don't be alarmed if yours doesn't make it at first. fThe sketches will be low-color, with some spot shading, textures or maybe even a bit of text. Please expect something like the more polished up sketches from my collages, or perhaps the 'Meanwhile, Karatekas' series! Some characters might be a bit easier to draw as there's a bit of them obscured, so I can do more detail on that, others showing full body will be a bit less detailed.

Note: this is for ALL KNIGHTS at the moment of this post, not only those at the knight tier pledge. If you're credited in the sketch collages and comics, you can contact me for this YCH.
This is a first, trial run, so here's some Q&A issues I thought of, but we'll add to them if something's unclear - don't hesitate to ask. The idea is to balance something that I can reasonably do for everybody kind enough to support me through this page, in reasonable time!
0. This one's nice but what if she was lying on her back instea...
Please stick as close to the initial silhouette as possible. We're going for speed here! Still: ask, it's the first time I'm doing this and I need to learn how to improve it the next way round!
1. Is this "first come, first serve"?
Nope, you can request whichever character you want, however it might be that when I get them all in a collage, I might pick somebody else's over yours (or your character will end up in a separate image... we'll see!). I might change it to first come first serve in the future, but I'd have to prepare way more silhouettes for you to choose from.
2. How long do I have to pick?
Plenty long, a month at least. I'll announce on Patreon and Twitter when the submissions will be closing - that's also probably when the next collage to pick from will become available.
3. If I miss a round and the next one rolls in, can I later request a character from a previous one?
No. While I'll draw every request from every Knight credited in the sketch collages and comics (please note that you only have to have obtained the credited Knight status through your pledges, you don't have to be actively pledging at the moment), I'm asking you to be proactive at contacting me. When there's another round of these, you'll be able to request only that actively running round, the previous ones will be gone. I hope you don't mind this format, it'll allow me to focus on drawing and not the bookkeeping.
4. What if I'm not pledged?
If you are not pledged, but you have accumulated the required lifetime pledge amounts that made you a Knight, and you aren't able to use the Patreon Messaging system, please send me an e-mail to my work mail address. You can find it through my Twitter, Newgrounds and H-F pages. Please include the e-mail address that you used to pledge with so I can verify, and note that it might take me a little bit to find you.
5. Do I have to stay pledged after I request?
No, you are encouraged to drop in, become a Knight, request a sketch - then, it's up to you if you'd like to continue the monthly support and receive all the other rewards. The full resolution version of these sketches will only be available to the appropriate tiers as rewards, but a standard resolution image will be posted publicly.
6. Can I request a revision after I see the sketch?
No, but I will do my best to make it all a nice looking piece - the idea is to use this to promote the Patreon page and my galleries in general, so I can't slack. If you'd like to take this sketch and go further with it as a commission, we can do that via my work e-mail.
7. Can you send me the result to my e-mail.
Specifically ask for that in your request message or e-mail, please.
8. It's been X since I requested...
I'm SLOW. If you're a knight, you probably noticed that already. I will try to get to everybody's request, but it might take a while! Do not hesitate to ask if yours is nowhere to be seen, though, it might turn out your request got misplaced somewhere in messy lists. Please note the point above, you don't have to keep the pledge tier once you place the request.
After we close off this first round, perhaps more perks like requesting multiple characters, past characters from past YCHs, or even bigger alterations (outfits, body types) are viable as rewards for high tiers. No promises for now!
It's going to be very interesting to see what you come up with, and how well this'll go!
Let's get to it!
