Big Changes + Sketch Commissions/Writing Commission + Patreon?

Permanent Linkby Chameleonette on Wed Nov 14, 2018 10:07 am

As of Tuesday, I had to unfortunately submit my resignation to the place I have worked at for a long time now (due to complications with something called White Lung/Baker's Asthma). It's not a change that I wanted to make and I was comfortable with my job and with the people who employ me, but something that I have to do for the sake of my health.

That said, while I'm in limbo, I'm going to be focusing heavily on commissions---as of now, that will be my only source of potential income after I arrange what I need to at work. Sometime soon, I will be opening commissions back up (after I get other things situated and smoothed out at work, and possibly training someone else into my position). So for those on my Commission Reserve list, please let me know ASAP whether or not you still wish to have your reserved slot. I know it has been a long time, as I have told those of you who inquired over the past year. But the slots are still yours if you want them.

I will be working hard to make ends meet. And working even harder yet to afford a new computer, as I'm still stuck doing sketch/drawing commissions only and non-digital work until I can afford one and put this 10 year old clunker to rest.

My question for you guys is thus...

Would you prefer I stick to only art commissions being offered? Is there potential interest in writing commissions from me? And how would folks feel about a Patreon?

I know the latter is bound to irk some people, but I want to explain and assure you---I don't intend to put my work behind some kind of impenetrable paywall. That would never be something that I would do. Rather, it would be to offer things and benefits to Patrons like free request raffles and a say in what sort of things that I work, etc. And at this time, it's something I'm still just considering. It's not set in stone.

Please do tell me what you guys would like to see me offering. I'm extremely anxious over this choice that I had to make IRL with my job and I want to do my best to stay afloat in the mean time. So it would mean a lot to me if you would let me know what interests you (if anything) and if you might be willing to support me through things like commissions and/or Patreon.

Thank you for your time. I hope you all have a lovely day~

When it comes to what kind of commissions you should do, you should do what you're comfortable with. Make sure to set up guidelines for what your'e willing and not willing to do and remember that a writing commission is going to take a lot more time then a drawn one. Same thing about Patreon. Patreon tends to be a slow roll for growth, so If you're comfortable watching patreon slowly grow over time and not expecting an instant boost then it'll work.

The flip side of Patreon is that it can help fund projects you want to do, like if you wanted to do a comic or release a story or something it can help finance those. I'd say do your research on Patreon and if you feel comfortable with it then go for it.

Well, I wouldn't have offered what I wasn't comfortable with. But I certainly will/would set up guidelines for those commissions if/when I set them up. Since I'm willing to offer those things, though, I wanted to know if there was interest in them.

And yeah, I do understand that about Patreon. Slow growth is fine with me, especially considering the niche that I draw content of within this fetish. I just want to open as many options as possible. Some people may not be able to afford commissions, but could perhaps support via a few dollars a month or something, so I considered having that option potentially available for those who may want it and may have wanted the opportunity for requests, etc.

Thank you for the input, though! I appreciate it.

Oh danm. I think you made a good call, especially since your physical well-being should take priority.

I'm seconding everything what Kino said - Having guidelines to what you can and cannot do for commissions is important.
I know some artists have Patreon pages where some higher-tiers kinda count as commissions, so that could be a possible venture too!

Either way, I wish you the best of luck in getting things settled. <3

Yeah, I honestly didn't realize White Lung/Baker's Lung was a thing until recently, but it explains all of the respiratory/congestion problems I've been having at my job for years. I didn't realize a flour allergy could develop or that it was dangerous to breathe the particles in. And as far as 'treatment' goes, the number one thing is to leave the environment/job that exposes you to it and it gets gradually better with less exposure. So as much as I didn't want to quit, it's better than ending up in the hospital.

Thank you for the feedback! I'll definitely make certain that I have thorough guidelines. And I'll keep that in mind about Patreon, too! (Though that's likely for more of a future thing, not super priority right now.)

Thanks a lot, Gen~ And I shall do my best.

Thank you. I appreciate it! This affliction, which has developed over several years, supposedly gets better once you leave the environment that causes it. Hence why I had to make the choice to quit the job, even though I really didn't want to.

Yikes, I hope you get better soon and hope things work out for you. Patreon seems to give steady income to artists.

Thanks~ I hope that will be the case. As far as Patreon goes, I know I can't expect much from that. I'm only a known artist in the smallest niche of this fetish, and very unpopular one. But it's something I will still be considering down the line as an option.

I'm sure it's not a lot of people's thing, but I want to have as many options as possible out there for folks who may have wanted a say in the type of vore content I create or the chance for requests and such. Aside from commissions, which I will be doing regardless.

Oh, no, I'm not disabled. The "Baker's Lung" thing supposedly gets a lot better once you leave the place where it's becoming a problem/hassle. That's why I had to quit. Things should get better once I'm out. And I don't have medical insurance (and went through hell trying to get some a couple years back), so I'd like to avoid going to the doctor at all costs.
