Hey guys, I come bearing some slightly terrifying and also exciting news.
I made a Patreon.
It's terrifying to me, to be putting myself out there like this. Some people have suggested it to me and I originally brushed the idea off as something that would never work. That nobody would be a patron to my works. I believed that something like that just simply wouldn't work for a guy like me, because I feel like I don't have much to offer. A lot of people probably believe that to be true, which is what further solidified the idea that it wouldn't work out too well in my interest.
I have pretty bad luck when it comes to a lot of things. Usually I get shot down by prospective opportunities. It's usually my fault for being too nervous, slightly missing a deadline, or having my anxiety get the best of me. I'm not one to make excuses for failures and I always accept them as what they are.
I like to watch a lot of people grow and become successful. I've been seeing it on my news feed on facebook here and there, and knowing that these friends and acquaintences are doing what they love for a caring company is one of my favorite things to see. It really inspires me and drives me and gives me hope that maybe some day that could be me. You know?
I've created this with the full knowledge and understanding that this will more than likely not be a success. I won't give up hope, though. I really hope people are interested in my art enough to be willing to support it. I try to be realistic about things, however, and I understand that everyone has their own lives and expenses that they have to upkeep.
So I've offered a few rewards to compensate for supporting me. They may not be the greatest rewards out there, but they're realistic rewards that I can do for sure. With the high res .jpg files you're able to use them to print your own posters/prints of my artwork if you like. The .psd's you'll be able to do the same, and you'll also get to see all the unused layers and the different kinds I used to create the artwork. It might be fun and a learning experience??
I'm the kind of person that tries to do as much as I can for people who need something from me, within my capabilities. So by being a patron, you should never feel neglected by me, as far as rewards go. If I fail to meet expectations as far as how many paintings a month I'd produce, I'd listen to feedback and come up with a viable solution to compensate for lack of what ever it is I may be lacking in so you feel like your money isn't going to waste. This has to be within reasonable parameters though, I mean I'm human and can only do so much.
But yeah, just thought I'd share this with the newgrounds community because newgrounds has been a second home to my artwork. Since the inception of the art portal, I've been regularly posting my artwork to it and getting awesome and valuable feedback. I get so many kind and awesome reviews here and everyone I talk to is pretty boss. Unless something absurdly tragic happens to me here, I know I'll continue posting my artwork here and replying to comments as best I can. (Usually on old old pieces I don't respond.. Not sure why I don't. I do read them and enjoy every one though, that's for sure.) I've met quite a few awesome people here, especially through the madness-side of the community. And every time I need assistance with anything Tom is awesome at replying right away it seems.
So yeah, here's a link to it and if you'd like to check it out, I really appreciate it. I really appreciate you even taking the time to read this long post of mine. You guys are all awesome people, thank you.
