A change in the wind... [Semi-Important]

Posted by reliuskaiser 7 days ago

 

Guess it was about time for this to happen. Nothing to serious, but life is making it hard to just meander about now. So I'm left with a choice and a question.

Would Any of you be opposed to me starting up a Patreon or the like to help get some money. Don't need a lot, but I definitely need something. I could do comms, but it'd be nice to have something else keeping me afloat during all this craziness.

I'm never going to hide any of my art behind a paywall, I personally hate that stuff even if I understand the reasoning behind it. This'll just serve as a way to motivate myself to do more for you all and keep those that support me going.

But yeah, TL DR: How would you all feel about me starting a Patreon?

Come what may, I won't be going anywhere. I thank you all for giving me your time and I hope to hear from you soon.

Well personally I think it would be okay.
I'm not backing anyone on patreon myself, nor likely to, but I see no reason why you shouldn't get to make a little extra money.

Yeah. Im not expecting to make waves with this. I'm just nervous since I don't like being beholden to much and this is just screaming at me as a bad idea despite how necessary this is for me.

Well if it's necessary then it's necessary.
I can kinda relate to not liking the idea of being beholden, I tend to be very unproductive, so the idea of owing somebody a piece of work sound like it might be stressful.
Then again it could potentially give much needed motivation.

Yeah, I very much need to do this, so I wanna make sure everyone who pays any attention to me knows what's going on. Need to make a picture for those that only pay attention to my art.

This is good way to keep what your doing and those who like what you do to be able to support you without that support being compulsory in order to see everything you make, I support this kind of use for Patreon :) Sadly, I'm one of those people who has to save every penny they can get, but I'm not like Mr. Krabs, one day I wanna start paying for commissions on some of my characters ^_^

I understand that. I just need to get everything set up. It was never a question of if i'm doing it, but rather how I'm doing this.

If this happens, I'll need to start small and just hope things come in time.

just remember to move at your own pace, otherwise you'll wind up burning yourself out and that won't be good for anyone :) I hope everything works out okay and that you can find a way to handle things with all that is going on! Maybe sometime we can play a few matches of league, or whatever other multiplayer games you are currently interested in :D always fun to just relax and bullshit while playing games

True. We could totally do that.
