Hey, sorry that I haven’t been updating very often for many years now… It’s mostly due to time and lack of motivation, with more info on that below:

How interested would you be in supporting me on Patreon if/when I quit my day job? I ask because this job has been mentally draining for the past few years now to the point where it is a source of depression & anxiety and I keep having panic attacks and blah blah blah. And I’m not interested in finding anything better within my professional field (web development) due to diminishing personal interest & not being fond of the direction it’s going.

Anyway, here’s a few things about the potential Patreon, because I know at this point audiences expect certain things…

  • It will not be fanart or eye candy/porn-centric. Most of the art will be original IPs of the mostly non-sensual variety.

    • However, there is possibility for fanart, etc as a milestone, i.e. when the Patreon reaches $_____/month, I will draw a fanart, etc that is most requested by fans.

  • It will not be commissions-based, because I Hate Doing Commissions®.

  • It will mostly be a "If you are entertained by my art & want to continue to see more, consider supporting me through a small monthly fee. Here are some exclusive wallpapers & process videos for you for being so generous." kind of Patreon.

I ask that if you respond, respond with complete honesty. Don’t be one of those “yeah, I’d love to support you!” and when the time actually comes, not actually follow through. I don’t need that kind of disappointment, lol... I need to know if there is enough serious interest before I pursue this concept seriously.

Essentially: if there is enough interest in Patreon, I can finally leave my horrible job and have time to pursue something legitimately fun and I can finally produce art on a regular basis again.

So let me know your thoughts!

I would absolutely be willing to chip in. Gotta figure out my budget here going forward, had to help fund my roommates' wedding stuff up until yesterday, but now that THAT's taken care of, it's back to the regular ol' budget stuff, so I can probably chip in a little. :D

I've always been a fan of the work that you put out. I think the characters that you create and the subsequent stories that accompany them are interesting. I don't have a lot of spare change at the moment but I'd be VERY much in support of parting with a few dollars if it means you can follow through with something you enjoy.

I'd support it, but you might want to consider doing a webcomic to draw in other support. If you can maintain a decent enough comic schedule, like 2-updates a week or so,  more people will be likely/willing to support a patreon page.

With a webcomic you'd never have to draw fanarts, just your OC's! :D

Yeah, a comic is like a far, far, far, far, far, far away goal for me, but a mildly successful Patreon could open up time for me to actually commit to one.
