SO. I was thinking of doing a choose your own adventure style comic, where patreon supporters could vote on things like what type of characters they want to see in the comic and what happens next. I was thinking of doing it on a per-page basis so people only pay for stuff that actually gets made. I would post all the pages publicly, but only patreon supporters would actually get votes. I was thinking of doing maybe $1 tier supporters getting to vote on page to page actions, and $5 supporters getting to vote on new characters, with maybe an upper tier for cameo appearances? Like a $30/page tier for having your OC appear in the comic for as long as you're signed up for that tier (maybe limit 2 on that one), tho there would be implicit limitations like ... your character might not appear on EVERY page, and of course what happens in the comic would be dictated by the mob (whichever suggestion gets the most upvotes would win) so you can't be too picky about what happens to them or how they act might be out of character to fit with the story of the comic.

For some examples of how this works, check out: Your Adventure (SFW)
Bang Quest (NSFW)

Let me know what you think in the comments, if the pricing structure is something you think would work, if you'd be interested in contributing etc. The more support I get, the more pages I could put out. :) Oh, and it would be NSFW because I'm a shameless whore and I love porn <3

sounds like fun.
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
yeah I think so too ~ it'd be really fun to draw
jellymouse

That's a cool idea
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
yeah! It seems like a GREAT way to utilize patreon without denying content to non-paying people who want to see the art, which is super hard to make work
Snowfirechakat

ohhhhhh this sounds really cool
Aogami

yeah I think so too!

Would this be a strictly sfw or nsfw comic? (nevermind I was a fool and didn't read to the veeery bottom X3;)

The pricing sounds fair to me!
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
It wouldn't be STRICTLY NSFW depending on where the votes go, but based on  my fan-base I can only imagine that it would be pretty sexy x3
KitRyuu

yes yes and more yes!
Aogami

glad to hear such enthusiasm! I'm pretty excited about the idea too ~ I hope I can get enough support to make it take off! I'll have to figure out patreon tho >u>;;;
Diriel

This is weird, considering I literally just this minute got done catching up with Prequel.
I'd totally be down for this! =3
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
haha nice! Ideally I would like to be making enough per page that I could devote a decent chunk of time per week to it, like maybe 5-10 hours ish
ksharbaugh

Sounds good to me.
Aogami

It sounds pretty cool, but only for those paying. I take part in things like YCH's, and commission people, but I make it a point to not do Patreon. Right now in my life, money isn't really too much of an issue, but if I did 1 patreon, I would feel the need to do 2, then 3, and before I know it, I wouldn't have any spare cash.
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
rofl I pay for a few of them myself and yeah it's very difficult to keep from spending xD BUT IT'D BE COOL YOU'D GET TO VOTE and stuff. Maybe after you see a few pages you'd be more interested in participating
Beluinus
2 years, 5 months ago
Yeah. That's why I like commissions. I'd be happy to just hand you like 50 bucks if I'm interested enough, it's what I pay for a typical commission anyways. I don't much care for repeat payments. Like, if I pay someone 10 dollars a month, and they go several months without anything, where'd the money go?
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
well, my plan was to bill by the page, not monthly. Check out the description for details on my proposed tier structure :)
Beluinus
2 years, 5 months ago
I understand. That was just an example.
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
instead of doing like a per page thing, I might just run an auction for stuff like cameo appearances or the like. Seems like it would be smoother
Beluinus
2 years, 5 months ago
I might be up for something like that. I'd probably participate in that.
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
awesome ~ x3
ihateire

Aogami

RobbyBunny

Oh- sounds dope ! I'd back it, or try to. Haha
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
I hope you can if I get it rolling :D
RobbyBunny
2 years, 5 months ago
Will deff try, sounds like a good way to gauge your fan's interests as well as let the littler guys have a say in what you draw; those who cant afford the 39 bucks per hour premium and all that.  x3
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
yeah I was thinking the same thing, that it would be nice to let people who can only spare a buck every now and then at least put in a vote towards what kinds stuff gets drawn
JakeM
2 years, 5 months ago
Nothing wrong with being a shameless whore, you have drawn Jake being one many a time :3
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
wink wink nudge nudge <3 I'm hoping to get like ... a minimum of 20 or so $1 per page supporters, which would probably not be enough to make it more worthwhile to do over commissions but enough to make me want to do it in my spare time at least
JakeM
2 years, 5 months ago
It sounds like a good idea, but obviously the characters would chosen would have to be up for most anything i guess, because some people in this fandom like Vore, etc... others don't. Also, what if one character is a strictly gay character, but the other is a female? Would you simply modify it so they don't interact sexually etc?
JakeM
2 years, 5 months ago
grrr now I'm all like 'RESERVE ME A CHARACTER SLOT DAMMIT'
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
Obviously I would retain some objective control. The idea is that the mob would control the actions of the protagonist, and like a Dungeon Master I would control the environment and the reactions of the NPCs in the universe to the protagonist's actions. The protagonist would not be omnipotent, and if they attempted to do something to a character who doesn't like that thing and that character had a means to stop them, they would. Also, I would be using this as a platform to write hilarious and stupid shit because I think I'm really funny so any time something totally weird wins the vote I would absolutely do my damndest to have fun with it.
JakeM
2 years, 5 months ago
That sounds amazing. Also, the idea of you as a dungeon master is... kinda hot x///3
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
hahaha *cracks whip* didn't know you were into being dominated by tiny chinchillas. :P And yeah I think I've got enough interest here that I should legit start looking into patreon and seeing if I can set things up. I've got some ideas for like a quest journal and stuff and it just sounds super fun to do ~
JakeM
2 years, 5 months ago
hahah, you are a mighty fiiine chinchilla :p size doesn't matter, and being dominated, is being dominated, fromthe art you hve drawn of me, I'm sure you know this wolf enjoys it xP

Good luck with it all! If I have some extra dough after food and rent then I will be sure to back it.
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
rofl glad to hear it ~ I'm going to start looking into setting it up soon :3
Parakolouth
2 years, 5 months ago
Sounds interesting, but I'm going to be that guy and ask "how will this effect commissions?"

(someone has to ask the selfish questions after all~ )
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
depending on how much support it gets I would begin using some of the money from it to book out slots of time to work on the comic project. I would probably not stop commissions altogether unless I started getting a RIDICULOUS amount of money per page. I plan on doing maybe two or three still images per post depending on what's needed, or maybe a 4-koma style in the vein of the examples I provided up in the description (tho obviously in my own style which is a bit less cartoonish) so I imagine each one would take somewhere in the range of 2-4 hours to complete. Until I start making enough per page to cover my hourly rate, it most likely will just be a side project
Parakolouth
2 years, 5 months ago
Given that it's you doing it, I wouldn't be surprised if you ended up covering your hourly rate before you realize it. Ah well, if should end up popular... and I suppose if it goes very well, I'll end up with some spare cash that I'll need to figure out how to use lol.
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
I was thinking of doing an auction for cameo appearances, or maybe a once-in-a-while auction where one person gets to guarantee that their suggestion goes thru for the next page. I'll probably be limiting content to stuff I'm comfortable drawing though. And also I don't think I want to stop doing commissions. I enjoy commissions so I probably wouldn't want to eat up more than a max of like 10-20 hours a week with this comic thing unless it becomes like undeniably more profitable
Gobby
2 years, 5 months ago
Sounds like a fun way to interact with your audience. Sort of like a giant, collaborative commission. X3
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
yeah exactly. I feel like it's a great way to gauge what my fans are really into and give those who can't afford to book full slots a way to meaningfully participate in what kind of content I draw. :)
CuriousHeart
2 years, 5 months ago
I can't help looking at that piture without thinking 'FURRY CLOUD!'
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
heh yeah I guess so. It was just a quick thing I doodled up 'cuz people are more likely to look at an image than a journal :)
DjijeytheDemon
2 years, 5 months ago
Sounds like a good idea to me.

Will have to lurk around to try and snag the cameo tier :P
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
totally! :D I was thinking of just doing that as an auction instead of a tier, just because it seems more like a one-time cost than an ongoing thing.
DjijeytheDemon
2 years, 5 months ago
Well if they wouldn't be in every page an auction could be a better idea so people don't feel ripped off but i don't think people would mind coughing up $30 a month/per page for a cameo spot.
Wouldn't surprise me if they didn't mind at least XD
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
well that's the thing is I'll be doing a per page setup rather than monthly. That way if I need to take a hiatus people won't be paying me for nothing, but if I'm extra active I'll be paid for the work. Seems more logical to me. But in terms of cameos I wouldn't want to be forced to include someone's OC in pages where it doesn't make sense just because they're paying for it, or conversely I wouldn't want to leave them out of a page that they're paying for. I think it makes more sense to hold an auction for a one-time cost, and then have a small side-story featuring them. Kinda like how Bang Quest is doing it where like ... they encounter a character and have some interaction with them and it just kinda turns out how it turns out based on what people vote to do.
DjijeytheDemon
2 years, 5 months ago
Yeah, if it's a per comic payment it would be best with a auction for cameo spots, if it had been a monthly payment i'd say a patreon spot would work since you kind of get what you pay for if there's more than one page per month, though that makes it less profitable for you so i can see why you go for per page instead.
Also i'm cool with the choose your own adventure comic as long as i still get to commission you. XD
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
yeah you definitely will. I don't expect to make a ton of money with it right away and even if it takes off in a monstrous way I probably would not stop doing commissions
DjijeytheDemon
2 years, 5 months ago
WEll we won't know how it will go until it's started but i'm happy i still can commission you! :D
jimbo
2 years, 5 months ago
Sounds like a fun idea. I like CYOAs because being able to participate in the crafting of the story makes the personal investment in the characters a little stronger. If people take it seriously, that is. I was kind of disappointed to see patrons being the only voters but then I think that might be a good thing to weed out a lot of the troll voters.
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
I'm sure we'll still get trolls for just a buck a page, but also I think it's a great way to reward people for supporting the comic without making it a paywall to the content itself or delaying the release of the content in some way etc. Everyone will get to see it and that's basically the biggest complaint most people have about patreon

awesome! I'm looking into setting it up soon so I will be making an announcement here as soon as I have the Patreon stuff all working
headlessrainbow

That sounds like it could only end in extremely perverse comics, which I approve of.
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
that's the idea! Tho I do intend to put some fun and humorous stuff in there too when there's room n.n
DemonicBudha
2 years, 5 months ago
would be very interesting. Seen some really good ones out there and with your art style, it would be pretty epic
Aogami
2 years, 5 months ago
I'm glad you think so! I hope you'll consider supporting when I get it up and running n.n

I've got one but it isn't set up to take payments yet. I'll be figuring all that out soon

I like that idea :)
As long as you don't stop with commissions completly and only do Patreon like a lot other famous artists ^^
Because I don't have they money to pay for Patreon every month so I rather stick to commissions to support you x3
Anyway good luck with it :)
Aogami
2 years, 4 months ago
patreon would actually be a deal cheaper for most people xD but no I wouldn't stop doing commissions most likely
EcchiNemi
2 years, 4 months ago
That's true but you don't get your own commission for it xD
Only high resolution files of comics or pictures or something like that ^^
Aogami
2 years, 4 months ago
no ... you would get to vote on what happens next in the comic! :)
EcchiNemi
2 years, 4 months ago
Yeah I was talking about artists who mainly use Patreon for everything ^^
Sorry it was a bit confusing xD
Glath
2 years, 4 months ago
Is furry and human sex a thing that can happen in the comic?  Er... asking for... a friend. >////<
Aogami
2 years, 4 months ago
if that's what people vote for
Totterbart
2 years, 4 months ago
Love the idea :D I'm so looking forward to see this happening^^ Also i will support you!
Aogami
2 years, 4 months ago
I'm definitely looking into it :D Not sure when I'll have something ot present tho
Totterbart
