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.
