Become a Patron

Deven Rue is creating in-world fantasy maps & teaching you how to make them too!

But my patrons are helping me create new projects, tutorials, props, and more!

First and foremost, supporting my art by becoming a patron allows me to create projects I normally wouldn't have the time nor funds to create.  Your monthly/annual subscription pays my bills, buys supplies & materials, as well as allows me the time needed to complete each project. I quite literally could not do any of this without you!

Use any of the buttons below to sign up to become a patron & receive the perks you're most interested in.  A pop-up window will open asking you to sign up using PayPal! Once you do, you'll be charged every 30 days. That easy! To stop being a patron, simply head over to your account page and change your status.

To get notified of new perks, products, & more, sign up for my newsletter at the bottom of this site.

NOTE: It can take up to 24 hours for your account to update after signing up.  If you still do not have access to your benefits/discounts after 24 hours, please message me and I'll update your account manually.
