Since I'm currently experiencing heavy financial issues and since I'm also not receiving more than 9$ per month for my artworks, I have something to ask of you.

Thing is, I see a lot of people, like myself, trying their best with the artworks they make on platforms, such as Patreon, Twitter, Pixiv...etc. and none of them are really making that much profit, even to the point where most of them quit creating artworks. There is, however, one exception how to make good money. A lot of people, myself included up to this point, are againt this way of making money. I am talking, of course, about NSFW artworks.
I always disliked seeing people that I looked up to, switching their artstyle from something, like action artworks to complete NSFW artworks. Now, that was until now, since I kinda get why they chose to go that direction. If you run out of the financial ressources that you rely on pretty much each day, you start to understand that doing other kind of artworks isn't the worst idea, especially if you can make a living with it.

Now that I am in a similar situation, I gotta ask you guys, if you're okay with the idea of me making NSFW artworks. I know some people see it as a low move to switch to it, which I totally understand since I felt the same way, but considering my current situation it is either going that way, or completely stop to create artworks. If I switch to those NSFW artworks, I will of course, not stop creating the other kind of artworks, such as the one you can see in my gallery.

And the most important question is: are you willing to become patreons, or give me commissions if they include NSFW artworks?

Let me know in the comments, and please feel free to discuss it with me. I would love to hear your opinion on it.

Thanks guys.
Wish you all the best.

Personally I don't think you should have to draw something you aren't comfortable with or won't feel proud of; if anything, there's got to be a problem with you not receiving the revenue you most definitely deserve for your works, I think. I don't have much experience with Patreon unfortunately, so in that area, I'd probably advise talking to other artists who more regularly make good funds off patreon, but.. I think you ought to have more followers, and more people ought to see your work and desire commissioning it or buying prints of it. Perhaps advertise yourself as much as your can, maybe make sure you got a page on as many platforms as possible to get your name out there, and then I think you might find more of a following which will include people who have the money and will to buy your work. (: As it is, it's hard to find a buyers' base on deviantart in my opinion. It just seems to be that fewer people here have cash and are willing to spend it (and also since points is an alternative), but you'll definitely find more people willing to spend cash on beautiful art from their favorite fandoms out there on the vast internet. ^_^

I can't say, "I hate people who change their art style to making NSFW artworks". Because there may be some reasons for that. Financial issues are a more general issue for everyone. Especially if you are artist and student. Most artists are trying to earn money from their artworks to solve these issues. And you know the community wants to see nudes instead of some cool stuff. Maybe that's what they are looking for. I don't wanna talk about it more. ^^

When it comes to you, I just want to tell one thing. "I love you anyway bro (no homo xD)" It doesn't matter what you want to change in future. The main point is the quality of your artworks. I'll keep support you in everywhere (da, fb, twitch etc.). Cuz I don't wanna lose my fav artists anymore. If you want to change something, don't hesitate, just do it. I'll respect your opinion. I'm sure most of your followers will agree with me.

Wouldnt really be a problem for me honestly.
I mostly watch your stream to learn something and I would support you more often if you keep on streaming.

Thanks man! I try to keep on streaming more often, however, since university has started again, I gotta take care of assignments first. Thanks for the support, really do appreciate it!

I'm willing to give commissions, but as you know from our conversation before, it includes NSFW.  However as also mentioned before, the very nature of the works include clothed and nude versions of such images, so there would always be a SFW version for you to post.

Also, your message:

"When you give me a commission, you accept that I post the picture on my DA after it's done."

That's fine, but I also have my own condition that adds on to that as well.

If that's fine, then you can let me know.  Thanks.
