This journal will continuously be updated for a long time. So keep an eye on this!
Hey guys! Finally, I've decided some rewards for the very beginning of my Patreon. This journal now serves as a guide to explain details of rewards and answer basic questions. Hope it will help you make the decision that whether to support me. Anyway, here goes the contents!
1.Upcoming works' WIP.
Normally, a WIP is a screencap pic about works I currently render. I may not update it regularly, usually when I finish rendering a part of my work.
2.Raw image files of my works.
As I wrote before, some upcoming detail works on DeviantArt will be resized( usually into 1024 pixels or less ). You can get all of these works' original png or jpg files, which normally are 2K size.
3.Exclusive update contents.
Exclusive, namely special for you. These works are mainly those I do for fun or practice, but also put quite a bunch of time. You are the first group of people can get access to them. As to keep it as exclusive, I'll update it on my Tumblr or Twitter after months or weeks, or just let them be parts of my drafts cluster. Oh, of course, do not post these works on any sites as you should keep them exclusive too.
4.Monthly sketch pack.
I have to say this reward is somewhere my favorite one. Doing sketches is a perfect way to record my inspirations and illuminations. Sharing these simply make me happy because I pass my insights with others and I enjoy this feeling. A majority of these sketches are from 2017 - 2018 while a tiny part from 2016 or earlier.
5.The voting poll for extra exclusive contents(most voted coloring-needed work).
As I still cannot concentrate more on my identity as a hobbyist artist, I always want to work harder. The voting poll may help me achieve that. Some works in sketch packs are formerly works that I should have colored for practice but I didn't due to my time arrangement. so I want you guys to help me. This poll will decide a sketch work from sketches packs then I will do color practice on it. The finish works may be part of the exclusive contents. NOT every month get the voting poll, it depends on my future schedule.
This will be a random reward for 20$+ patrons. It records all my create processing from sketches to the finished pic and normally will be 40 minutes or longer. The reason why it is random and be put in the 20$ tier is because making a video on my old laptop will take a large amount of my spare time, to record, to make BGM(usually a continuous mix of EDM), to compress and encode, etc. If you patronized me for this, please accept my deep and sincere gratitude. This video will not let you down.
7.PSD files of my works.
I thought you might want to know how my arts are made so I put this as a reward too. But one thing you should aware is - You might found them look different from ones I uploaded. The reason is as follow - I'm currently an SAI user and the PSD files outputted by SAI have tiny differences with ones outputted by Photoshop. Mainly because of the different calculate way of layer effects. It weakens some effects when opening the PSD by Photoshop. So I usually adjust the color balance or else in Photoshop after merging and altering some layers. I guess you'd like to see how each layer serves to the whole art. So If you ask for a PSD file, I'll output it again from SAI, which has not been photoshopped and merged.
For further consideration, I will find another tool for my creation so this situation won't last long.
Tips and Questions (In Case You Want To Ask):
1. How should I get my rewards?
I use Dropbox for delivering. You can get the link to the rewards' download page in Patreon post that you can see after you choose your tier.
2. Why there isn't any request-related reward?
First I have to say thanks to all of you for asking about the commissions or requests. Some of you might notice that I'm such a busy guy. I'm in the last year of university and working hard on many projects and tests. The reason is simple, I don't have too much time for that. Honestly, in limited time, I prefer to spend it on my fanarts and personal arts in order to improve myself to bring better arts to you guys. Things will change maybe, but not for now.
3. How can I know if there is a voting poll for next month?
For the voting poll, I decided to put it off for a few months as patrons might not be too much at the beginning. I'll do it randomly due to the uncertainty of my monthly arrangement. If you noticed that works in files of the sketches pack you receive are marked with index (not the file index) then next month definitely will have a voting poll.
Sounds like a lottery right?
4. How can I know if there is an upcoming timelapse video?
If I was preparing for a timelapse video, I will update it in Patreon posts. But like I said first, currently making a video on my devices is quite difficult and will cost a large amount of my spare time. So you might see it very late after I post the work.
5. Is there any chance that rewards could include NSFW contents?
This is embarrassing but I have to write it down. Somewhere I can't fully get used to NSFW works and also I don't want it to motivate my creation. It's sort of weird to me. So of course no.
6. Could you tell us something about the comic you mentioned?
Sometimes I love spoilers in a gentle way but this comic is an exception. I'd like to keep it as a secret until I reach my first goal. Sorry about this. But by taking refers from PARTS of my works, you probably could find some clues about the comic.
If you still have some questions, leave them in comments or just note me. Every advice or critique helps me a lot.
6. 你能透露一些有关那个漫画的内容么? 有的时候我喜欢做点不那么粗暴的剧透，但这个漫画是个例外。在我达到我的第一个目标之前我想对它绝对保密。抱歉了。但是参考我的作品的部分内容，你也许可以发现一些有关于这个漫画的蛛丝马迹。
