Carrot Month Ends! A review and moving forward!

BAWWWWWWWW Man, that month went by SO GOSH DANG FAST. Unfortunately - I had like, 3 friends visiting out of town, 2 babyshowers, helping my roomies move out, and a but ton of yardwork/house stuff to finally set into motion (long story). I SWEAR everyone was out to distract me last month lmao.

DESPITE their valiant efforts - it wasn't enough to stop me >D I got a ton of stuff done!

•Start to finish CarrotTalk on Workflows
•Start to finish Carrot Dakimakuras! (more on this soon)
•Start to finish mini-narrative game "Horsin' Around"

•Pre-production for potential Enamel Pin designs
•Pre-production on acrylic stand-up
•Pre-production on small gambilng game.
•Pre-production on next game to pursue "The Bean Merchant"
•Pre-production on another mini narrative helping a cat "stretch" ;)

Mmm I think that's about it. I didn't flesh out nearly enough little narratives that I wanted to. But I'm am'd to do so!

But I also did some much needed zooming out and restructuring of my patreon and future as a furry artist. To those in my patreon who've been following along, you've seen all the changes, but for the rest of you, this is what I've been up to!

•Created more visuals on my patreon page for each pledge tier!
•Also incoporated those into Stream labs, adding another level of fun/communication during streams!
•Started a private discord server for Patreons only! A place to be much more in touch with me, (and eventually have some art-help tiers?)

And finally, and perhaps one of the biggest, I've realized that this is definitely the direction I need to head. Unfortunately, it's impossible to juggle these bigger projects and be "open" for commissions - so I will be closing my patreon-commission options. I thought I could manage this, but the past 3 years has been my "attempt" at that, and there's been very little progress in terms of my projects.

To be honest, It'll be a huge blow to my income xD, but I really hope I can win over more people's support by proving myself and making some awesome content for y'all :> I'm trying to figure out decent ways to monetize stuff while still staying true to my morals and ideals for art. I'm nervous that it's gonna be a bit of a balancing act - but I'm confident that as time goes on I'll gain the support I need.

It's gonna be some big plays, but I'm only getting older. The time I have to be able to take these chances is getting smaller, so I gotta seize it while I can!

Unfortunately you guys will probably be hearing me whoring out my patreon even more than usual xD! I feel bad about doing it, but at the same time, people don't know about it unless they see it, right? On the other hand, y'all will be seeing more than the occasional commission here 'n there!

Until then, I'll be completing owed work, and wrapping up the in-process patreon commissions.

Thanks for everything guys :>

Damn, Carrot; you're a force of nature.

Don't over exert yourself! <3 keep up the good work, though.

Nice to see that you got a lot of things done in this month. I'm really looking forward to your games.

It is difficult to manage your own projects and doing commissions but I'm pretty sure you can do it.

God speed Carrot!

Man, that's a lot to be proud of this month. Patreon change is a tough call, but I know you're passionate enough, hard working enough, and skilled enough to make what you love happen. You do amazing stuff. Make 2019 the year of Carrot!

I never did hear back from you about my tech demos, my hard drive kind of suddenly died on me. :/

I was able to restore all my data from corruption using some software, though. So, nothing was lost!

I'm stuck on a crummy Windows 7 netbook for the next couple of weeks, though... >.>

The news for me about the commissions is a bit of a bummer because I was just checking in to see if you might be open do to one. And then I read this. 0.o

But hay, saying you feel you are going in the right direction is a real big deal. ^.^

And it looks like you are going to be quite busy with all that you have planed. No need to wish you luck with your talent behind the work ahead.

As always, stay frosty. ^.^

Sorry to hear!

To be fair, I haven't been "open" for commissions for years. So nothing's really changing for most peeps!

Shows how well I pay attention at times.

I may still look around for any whom is stating they have an open slot, and ask them if I happen to like their work and price. ^.^

I would ask SmittyG, for I happen to like his work also, but like you, I don't think he is doing any commiss work either. Chow. ^.^

Forgot to say but that Dogfolio you and SmittyG worked on looks interesting. I wonder if he is still selling? I will have to ask.
