I'm allways a bit doubtful about how well kick-starter-projects work when you're a "newcomer" with maybe a growing community but not a big/very big one (and loads of dedicated fans).

But:
- If you don't loose much, then I'd try anyway; It might work! Otherwise it's some experience.
- It might help to think of some kind of "result" that would be interesting for people, that would be worth the extra money; for example: 1 original polaroid for a certain amount of donated money?
- Isn't there some kind of "donation" function online, that you can embed in your page or something? That would be the "donation for poor but promising artists"; a possibility to support your work in general.
in this case I would vote for the colour version. But in another case (other combinations of portraits and star-background) I would have to consider it again.  
Art is (as I understand it) very much connected to the "real life dictate". Artistic work is a kind of constantly "dealing with" real life; with the nice and the problematic part of it. Overcoming obstacles is a crucial part of any artistic/creative development.
There are many reasons (and that's why I use DeviantArt rearly these days):

- You can only present "adequately" SINGLE WORKS + works that are meant as PICTURES of some kind.
> no real option to work with series (for example skeckbook extracts)
> works that are NOT really meant to be PICTURES get anyway treated like they were pictures (for example the documentation of an installation art piece - the quality of the photograph counts and NOT the installation as an artwork)

- The community as a whole (not the rare exceptions) has a narrow/popular concept of "art", but of course that has to be expected ;-) If your work doesn't fit into this popular concept, it doesn't get much attention.

- The graphic desig of the website is too flashy and get's in the way of the representation of the artworks.

- The (social) dynamics of the community only works for those who are into this kind of interaction. One has to put quite some time into getting connected and using all the different options of interaction. If you don't, you'll not be "integrated". But again: no wonder there.

- and more ;-)
the change between days is much stronger, at least for me.
in any case an interesting question - I wonder how it's different for people living in different climats (like the tropics, without any season).
