Hey, males, females, and the diversely categorized! Thought I'd drop in with some progress notes.
The last few commissions I have for April are all 2+ character stuff and my day job is picking up at the end of the week, so you guys might see a lull in my work until the weekend. Chin up, they're still being worked on.
Now, this ol' tin can has seen trends come and go, and while he's not fond of learning new tricks, sometimes he hears the way the wind's blowin'. So here's my thoughts on some current trends among the niche and dA in general.
Patreon: Hoo boy, the Patreon. You're an artist, you get yerself a Patreon. "SUPPORT ME!" Hey, that's all well and good. If you like an artist and want to keep food on their table, you Patrize them up. Will I be doing it? ....Nnnno. Not now, at least. I'd rather just get paid for when I do my work, and I do have a day job, so that's enough for me. I do have plans for the future- a full bio and story arc for the Nekotykes, and like FIVE comic ideas, but I'd rather get them all on paper, scripted and roughed before I even think of making people pay for progress by month. Even then, I think I'd rather just work on it, have something done, and then offer it to the public at a reasonable price. If you guys want to Patreize me, I wouldn't stop you. But not until I have something strong, well done and constant for you all.
YCH: This, now, seems interesting. It took a while for me to think of how to work this in, and I may have an idea. June is coming up, and for those who enjoy it, that means Butt Month. This time, I'm offering six (count'em, six) YCH slots to be worked on and revealed during May. If you've wanted your character featured in Butt Month and have some spare dough to throw at me, you pick one of those up!
Streaming: I've been doing this more often, and I gotta admit I'm on the fence with these. On the one hand, it's fun, liberating and really frees up the creativity. Plus you all get to see my stupid humor first hand and YOU CAN'T LEAVE. AH HA HA HA HA. On the other hand, I've seen people get upset that their suggestion wasn't drawn during streams a few times. Now I don't know how streams work in other corners, but I must insist: If I say in my stream announcement and during the stream that I'm taking suggestions, not requests, it means I'm doing my own thing and picking what sounds interesting in between. I'm sorry if people get fussy about the way I do things, but for me streams are a way to relax and sketch as many cute things that I can think of.
Okay, I think that about covers it! To my Slot Holders, stay tuned during the weekend. To my Stream followers, keep an ear out next week and let me know what theme you might like (Remember, suggestions are well and good!) To everyone else, enjoy the day!
