EDIT: I actually forgot to add a link to my patreon in the journal...kinda embarassing...fixed that now
As you may or may not know, A great part of why I'm drawing at all is the support of a lot of people, including everyone who watches me and comments/faves my works on dA and likes/reblogs my drawings on Tumblr. It may sound stupid but if it weren't for you guys, I would have stopped drawing years ago.
With that said, you may understand why I want to dedicate myself to drawing and making you guys happy to have supported me through these years. I want to improve and I want to get able to draw even more subjects for everyone to enjoy, nothing makes me smile as seeing you happy about a drawing I made. If you never tried to create anything, probably this will sound like a lie to you, it did for me before I got into ponies ... After I began posting my works on dA and I started gaining an audience, seeing someone actually caring about what I did made my day!
That brought me to try and improve again and again because I wanted to be worth of that appreciation, I always wanted to overcome my limits and I wanted to make even more people smile with my drawings.
Unfortunately, I've had a lot of bad happenings during these years and it got me into a big case of depression for which I'm being treated...this means I was unable to do anything at all, my life went to hell, I couldn't complete my studies, I wasn't able to find a job and every day felt horrible ... I eventually got better but I'm still jobless, no income, no autonomy, I'm 33 and I have to live with my parents because that's the only thing I can afford at the moment.
Yet, beside talking to my friends, the only thing that keeps me going is drawing and I really enjoy the process of creating and sharing everything and since I feel drawing is probably the only thing I didn't completely fail at, I really want to get it to the next step.
This is why I created my Patreon
page, I want to dedicate my life to drawing and making people happy about what I draw, and if you believe I deserve this privilege, if you think I should be able to fulfill my dream, it'd mean the world to me if you'd consider supporting me on that page. Even if it is "just" $1, it would mean you believe I have the potential to give something back to the world and there is nothing more I could ask.
My Patreon page is as paywall free as I can feasibly make it but there are still rewards for whoever decides to support me and I'm open to suggestions...if you think "man, if only he offered this as a reward I'd definitely join", just mention that to me and if it's feasible, bang, I'll add it!
Know that regardless of what you do, I'll do my best to keep drawing for as long as I can and you'll always have my gratitude for all the support you gave me during these years
