Who are you?

Hello! My name is Alexandria Hayes, better known to most online as GildedAshes. I am an independent artist specializing in horror, macabre, erotica, and combinations thereof, but I do branch out from time to time.
I like to explore various themes in my work such as queer relationships, forbidden romance, rebellion, and autonomy. Though I work in a variety of mediums, my current focus is on graphite, watercolor, and colored pencil. 

Why SubscribeStar? 

SubscribeStar is a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship.
It's primarily a way for my fans who can't afford a bigger purchase, who want to have a finger on the pulse of my journey as an artist, or maybe those who just want to give a little extra, to show their support. It's also a chance for me to give back to you, who have supported me and my work in the past and gotten me to where I am today. It lets you see more than the public face, and be part of my creative process from start to finish. It makes you part of my art.
For me, it's a way to expand my own horizons. At this time my primary source of income is from private commissions. And while I enjoy this part of my job immensely, it does mean my personal projects can be forced to the sidelines, and my portfolio is somewhat at the mercy of my clientele. By supporting me on SubscribeStar, you are directly helping me establish myself in the fantasy and sci-fi illustration world by funding more personal projects. SubscribeStar can alleviate the pressure of a long commission queue, which gives me more freedom to explore the kind of art I'm passionate about. And with you intrepid travelers by my side, no less.

How does it work?

You choose which tier you'd like to join. As soon as you join, you will have access to the three most recent posts on my page for the first 30 days. Once those 30 days are up, you’ll gain access to the entire archive and all future posts as long as you are pledged. This process is merely to prevent people from subscribing, collecting a bunch of exclusive content, cancelling their subscription right away, and posting said exclusive content publicly. You can view, like, and comment on all new posts, as well as all of the previous ones. You will be automatically charged every 30 days from the day you subscribe to get continued access until you upgrade, downgrade, or cancel. 
To join the discord server and gain your exclusive role, click the Discord Chat button in the top left corner of my page once you’ve subscribed.
One-time discounts will be delivered as necessary in the form of store codes. For tiers with ongoing discounts, new codes will be generated and distributed each month.

SubscribeStar vs Patreon: What's Different?

To those of you following me here from Patreon, thank you! This change is surely inconvenient for everyone, but I think it will be better in the long run than trying to hide or disguise parts of my work, or risking the whole thing getting shut down altogether with no notice. 

Rebuilding a subscription platform meant analyzing how I built it the first time. There's a lot that worked really well on Patreon, but a lot that I think could use some improving too. Here's a rundown of what's changed.

You will now receive:
  • tier-specific Discord roles, in addition to the general supporter role.
  • access to high res scans of my sketchbooks (entire pages!) at the $5 tier or higher
  • 10% discount in all my online stores at the $5 tier or higher

You will still get:
  • minimum seven days' early access to all finished pieces
  • access to high resolution files of finished pieces
  • exclusive WIPs, thumbnails, scrapped projects, etc.
  • exclusive roles and channels in the Discord server
  • process breakdown posts
  • blog posts, art-related and otherwise

I will no longer:
  • give early access on individual sketches and doodles - they will be posted on social media instead.
  • be posting daily or on a regular schedule, for the time being - content will be posted as it's ready.

Thank you again for your ongoing generous support, and I can't wait to see where this new journey takes us!
