After a lot of thought I'm thinking of making a Patreon. It's a great platform to offer me the freedom of creating new and exciting art as well as pleasing and educating the fans. Something which I have been putting off due to a hectic work schedule. TBH I actually really want to do a Lovecraftian themed Patreon...something in me stirs for that...

What I want to know is what do YOU want out of a Patreon?

PSD files
Step by step process
Style?(Painting or Line drawing, maybe both?)
What time period would you like the rewards (1 week, 2 weeks, or a month?) 

I'm thinking of maybe doing video tutorials  with voiceovers along the way.

Voice your opinions here! :)
  • Listening to: Godzilla 2014 OST
  • Reading: A Song of Ice and Fire
  • Watching: Hannibal
  • Playing: Bloodborne
  • Eating: Everything
  • Drinking: Green Tea

I'd love to see more stuff from you.
Can't promise to support a Patreon (but maybe I will :p )
If you do, though, use this!

it's an invite.

I got a Patreon myself, together with talented (NYT bestselling) author Aaron Dembski-Bowden.

In terms of what you should do, I'd say there are some standards that I see artists do-

You named them all. Though I think Prints is a bit shifty. People want prints, but consider the costs. If it costs you more than what you get, it hardly is helpful for anyone (because you'll go broke, and have to stop with the patreon, so nobody will get prints anymore :p )

I think the really big key is to gather many patrons, and have low tiers.

So, yeah. If you are already giving away extra's at 1$, that is a good incentive. :)

I really hope it turns good for you :)

(and shameless plug obviously)
Check out our Patreon :)

One of the best advices I can give is actually this- Be patient.
If you are lucky, you have a bunch of people supporting you right away, but think of it as a slow build.

IF you want to get really creative, use thunderlap (search it) and get 100 friends to post about it on Twitter/Facebook. That way, you get a massive shoutout that your patreon is happening when you start.

But be patient, it builds :)
