PATREON If you haven’t noticed by now, I’ve been sorta throwin out there that I have a Patreon. I’ve actually had it for a few years now, but its mostly been a tipjar up until now.
“What do you mean ‘up until now?’“ Well, I’ve decided that I want to put less focus on commissions, and go full on with a patreon model. This will help me make more of my own work, which doing full commissions just didn’t allow for me to do. And I know a lot of you would like to see me return to my own work again.
“Will you still be doing commissions?” For now yes. To make the transition to patreon takes time. My first goal is set up on patreon to help me get to a point where doing commissions will be optional for me. But for now, commissions will co-exist with patreon. And to clarify, becoming my patron will not grant benefits for commissions. These will be separate things.
“I noticed you’ve been slowing down on commissions lately, Is that because of this transition?” In a way, yes. I have been having some troubles getting certain commissions done due to me not being able to work on my own art. There is also me wanting to be as consistent as possible with sketch/ink/color processes that have been making it hard to really experiment and push myself forward. “Okay, so what do I get for becoming a patron?” If you become my patron you will get; early access of finished pictures, download and save PSD files of said pictures, sneak peak into future projects/experiments, sketches/work-in-progresses, and access to my private discord server. All of these are awarded based on donation tier. So please do go look and see if any of that interests you.
“Will you consider adding more rewards in the future?” Yes. A very BIG yes. I eventually want to add some sort of physical rewards to higher tiers. I’ve always wanted to make physical products using my art. I’ve done so in the past a few times, but it was always difficult to fund and would always come down to being an auction type thing. If you want to see these things, please do consider supporting me to get even closer to that point. This is probably the biggest reason I want to pursue Patreon.
“This isn’t a payawall is it?” Nope. My patreon was never, and never will be, a means of exclusively viewing my art. Everything I post on Patreon will be posted publicly at least a week later.
TLDR; I have reopened my Patreon with new rewards and tiers. Commissions aren’t going away. • MY PATREON •
